Fun place. Went before Cavs game. Food was great, nice local beer selection on tap. The perch dinner was great and my wife had the lobster which she said was cooked just right and really sweet. Manager came by our table. Nice touch. Service is a little slow but worth it if you are not in a big hurry. Would go back!

Great Bar! They do not take reservations on St Patrick's Day! Even though Open Table made one for us. The owner found us a table and made sure we stayed happy. The food was great at a very reasonable price!

Service was abysmal. Three times had to grab someone else to find our waitress. Did not bring both ordered appetizers, only one. Manager ended up bringing entrees, one of which was not hot. Then, manager disappeared. Empty plates then sat on table for way too long until waitress brought the two desserts which she tried to slip alongside the dirty dishes. Had to ask her to first remove the dishes. After that she gave my wife her dessert and then took mine and gave it to another table. I never got my dessert. Another manager was summoned when no check was forthcoming from our nonexistent waitress who listened to our tale and then did not require us to pay. Overall, the worst dining experience we ever had, but at least they didn't expect us to pay for it, too.

We had heard about it and decided to check it out. It was a Sunday night and quiet. Service was excellent, food (dinner) was average or less. Probably will return for a drink and appetizers just not for dinner.

the nauti mermaid was a fun place for some yummy drinks and decent food. the seafood is reasonably priced, surf and surf was $42.00 for ~1/2 to 3/4 lb fresh whole lobster and a dozen clams. the bloody marys are super spicy and delicious. it wouldve been tastier witha celery stalk or a cupla green olives, though.. overall i would visit again in warmer weather to enjoy the outdoor patio

Everything turned out great. The food was very good and to top it off your Key lime pie was the best I've ever had and I've had many through out the state of Florida. Yours was the best bar none.

We had a good experience and I would recommend the Nauti Mermaid. Our server was excellent and the happy hour drink pricing was fantastic.

My son and I I had the Nauti pasta. It was good. My wife had the Walleye and she liked it as well.

This was our first visit to The Nauti Mermaid, but it won't be our last. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals, and the service was wonderful and very attentive. Everything was beautifully presented, the specialty drinks were very tasty, and the pricing was more than reasonable. We look forward to returning soon and bringing our friends with us. Highly recommended!

The NM was lacking some good service. When we asked for the beers on tap..the server told us to turn around and look at the menu near the bar. The server had a hard time getting around, she was spilling our drinks all over herself and our table when delivering them to us, not to mention that she was not very nice. The margarita was to sweet and my friends draft beer tasted funny. Returned the draft for a bottled beer. Nachos were good. Waitress never checked back with us for another round of drinks. Cute place. Would not want same server again.

Oh how I love this place. Anytime I'm in the Cleveland area, this is where I eat. The jalapeno lobster soup is to die for. Seriously, it's the best bowl of soup I've ever had in my life. The crab cake pretzel bun sandwich is incredible, the lobster nachos are AMAZING, the mahi mahi burger is awesome. The food is just fantastic. Mad kudos to the chef! I will come here every single time hands down!

First time there enjoyed meeting Gus very friendly . The waiter also very helpful and friendly . The food was good the Mahi was a little dry and overcooked but really didn't want to send back and wait that's on me. I would try again the rest of the meals no complaints .

My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary. The king crab legs were fantastic, and the crab cakes were some of the best I've had. Our server, Shelly, made the experience memorable. She was funny and engaging with us and we had a great time kidding around with her. Definitely recommend the Nauti Mermaid. We will be back.

Atmosphere and food was delicious but... the kitchen was backed up we ordered at 5:30 and didn't get our food until 7:00. I think if they get their kituchen organized it would be perfect. I will go again and hope it was just an isolated incident.

I would suggest people try it because the food was really good.

The service was horrible! I don't understand. There was a huge concert that night how could they not have been prepared? And it's not like they were packing them in. They turned away anyone that didn't have a reservation. I think we were there 30 min before we got our first round of drinks and over 90 minutes before we got our food. Which was very good.
