The Nauti Mermaid Restaurant Review

: Modeled after a Key West crab shack, The Nauti Mermaid features walls covered with sea-aged wood planks, which are then splattered with multicolored Christmas lights, fishnets, buoys and pictures of fishermen (just in case you didn't get the idea). More impressive than the kitschy touches, though, is the rotating, diverse selection of microbrews and regional ales available on tap. As for the Caribbean-inspired menu, it's solid without being pretentious. We like the popcorn shrimp as well as the hot crab dip to start. The sliders are solid, but we also recommend the raw bar offerings. Dishes are served in paper-lined plastic baskets so don’t come wearing your best finery. A spot for industry folk from other local hot-spots, the Mermaid keeps the drafts flowing late into the night.
