If you're up for getting stuffed then Merns is the place. Real old time flavour, portions and choices. All from scratch, it's just like mom's...if your mom can cook!

We live about a hour away but every time we venture to Yarmouth, we always make a point of eating at "Merns"... excellent home cooked meals and value for your buck is great... just remember if you order the regular clams and fries.. you will be taking some home the portion is too much for one person... always great service...

We loved it! Didn't feel like anything fancy and wanted the 'real deal'. Excellent chowder, fish and scallops. Best blueberry pie ever. Not too sweet! Just right! Great friendly service from Yvonne. Would highly recommend!
