Cheers all, tossing up between Mermaid Inn & Aquagrill for seafood. What do you think?

Thanks in advance.

      Thanks rrems Aquagrill it is.

      For Thai we are trying to decide between Holy Basil, Sticky Rice, Thailand Cafe & Tara Thai. Input appreciated.

    2. Aquagrill is definitely better, but also more expensive if that matters.

      I've only been to Holy Basil among your Thai choices. It's nothing special.

      1. I love both.....but Aquagrill is Tier 1, while Mermaid Inn is Tier 2.

        1. it depends if you want raw oysters et all
          mermaid has tasty entrees
          aquagrill has tasty fresh oysters

            IMO Mermaid has bland entrees.

              Aquagrill is far superior with oysters and entrees, in my opinion. Also, though more expensive, still reasonable and a nicer environement.
