Words can't even begin to describe The Blue Mermaid. Everything from the food to the service and even the decor was spot on! One of the best, if not the best restaurant in Portsmouth and the Seacoast. Our first trip here was for restaurant week, and everything was fantastic. We have since been back at least once a week, and we feel like family. Do yourself a favor and get down to The Blue Mermaid! The short ribs are a must have, along with the saddlebags!

Amazing food, superb service. Wasabi Salmon was the best salmon combo I've ever had. Saw my fish delivered fresh. Best complimentary homemade salsa and chips around!

Don't let Rachael Ray turn you off. Even though she is really annoying, she is right about this place. I think they should have a 25 Zagat score, the food has always been excellent.

I've been to the Mermaid a number of times and it's really just not for me. The menu is all over the board from pizzas to fish and pastas. The bar area is very awkward with a long bar with no room behind the seats. The time I did enjoy it was sitting outside in summer drinking a beer with friends.

Had a delicious meal, off of their Sunday brunch menu. Great prices on their cocktails and an absolutely fabulous wait staff. I would recommend this Island grill to anyone looking for a great tasting meal in Portsmouth!!

we were very excited to go to the blue mermaid, but we heard from the locals that the reviews are pretty inconsistent. After lowering our expectations, we ventured in for my birthday dinner. The server recommended the short rib and the plantain encrusted cod. my boyfriend (only) liked the short rib, but my fish was some of the worst fish i've ever had. It was cooked so well that it was chewy! if i didn't already have guilt for sending back the sweet potato curry soup, that was runny and flavorless and tasted more like red pepper than any flavors mentioned in it's title, then i would have sent back the fish. seriously...the worst! POSITIVES: corn lobster chowder, specialty drinks and downstairs bar and live music.
