Had a delightful dinner with my two toddlers - staff was helpful and very friendly, and I was so tired. When my 3-year old starting singing Happy Birthday, the owner came out with ice ream and a candle. Great place.

We had a large work group and went here for dinner. We had the stuffed grouper special and a watermelon drink special. Also, they had toasted coconut creme brûlée for the special dessert which was amazing. We talked to Jerry and told him that the toasted coconut creme brûlée should be a regular item on the menu. Excellent service, excellent food and a wonderful experience. We would love to go back again in the future!

Jerry and the Mermaid. Mediocre food at best and VERY expensive drinks. Not much atmosphere and can get very loud and rowdy. Would not go back. Unfriendly bartenders, they act like they don't care if you enjoy your experience there or not.
Don't waste your time or %$

Decided to try this restaurant based on the reviews posted on Trip Advisor. We had the opportunity to sit outside, which was a nice option on a late spring day. The wait staff was pleasant and attentive. The calamari was good. The cheeseburgers were cooked to perfection (maybe over-marinated as they were a bit salty) and the waffle fries were crispy (and a little bit on the greasy side). Would come again and try one of the seafood dishes.

We went here for lunch after stopping at the aquarium to pay for my daughters wedding. The lunch was great and the staff was very friendly so we couldn't wait until after the wedding to come back for karaoke again and have the same friendly staff. Sorry to say this was not the case. While the owner was very friendly, the wait staff was not very personable to say the least. I am not giving a bad review because the lunch we had and our first opinion was awesome so I'm just hoping the unfriendly waitstaff was having an off day. Unfortunately this situation made my rating only a very good and that is being generous. Hopefully you have the awesome wait staff that we had in the afternoon. Don't know if I would return for this reason.

Thanks for your recent patronage and for bringing that issue to my attention. I will take your comments into consideration and appreciate you expressing your opinion. I'm sure the staff member was having an off day, which is no excuse. My staff tends to be extremely friendly and overly attentive to their guests needs. I only say this, because that is what I have been told by countless customers. I hope you visit us sometime soon so we can prove that to you. Regardless, thanks for the review and for helping spread the word about Jerry's.
