This place offers a good cozy atmosphere with reasonably priced seafood dishes. Lobster dinner with a choice of 2 sides was good at $45 per person. Very nice and friendly staff.

Having dinner and drinks before a function at the Delta. Great food and atmosphere. If you are looking for a happening place to wine and dine this is it.

Coming from the Westcoast to the Eastcoast we have equal bragging rights. This is a very nice seafood restaurant, although I thought the menu was a little limited. We had the seared scallops which were perfect along with a nice salad and rice for me,...More

Cozy, welcoming, wait staff was friendly and the meal was average - fish stew did not have much flavor and the salmon was acceptable. Not wonderful but good.

I've visited Merchantman before and always like to drop in for food and a beverage while I'm in town. The service is great, the food (love their spinach salad!) is worth coming back for.
