Have been here a lot for dinner and/or special occasions, but never for lunch. Lunch was outstanding. The burger menu is excellent with a perfectly cooked burger and good sides. The fries are crisp and not greasy. I had the Mercury salad with tons of chicken, lump crab, shrimp and bacon. Great choice of dressings. Good bread for the table.... More

My husband and I wanted a night out at a fine restaurant, so we chose The Mercury. This was his first time and my second, although it had been many years since I had had an excellent lunch there. (Glad to see the place has longevity!) When we arrived for our 7pm reservation on a Wednesday evening, the parking valet... More

Went there with colleagues for lunch and order steak Dianne (steak with mushrooms cooked in brandy sauce) and served with onion rings (it comes with French fries but you can get onion rings instead). It was absolutely delicious! The best part was to finish the meal with lava cake and a scoop of vanilla ice cream! It was not too... More

We participated in the rare Thanksgiving buffet at The Mercury. While the buffet was very traditional the expense was too high for a an everyday Thanksgiving meal. Wait staff had to be asked for everything...tea, water, butter,bread , etc. Our seating turned out to be in the "Sushi side" of the restaurant,and no tablecloths. This reminded me of the Chinese...

Attended a business meeting followed by dinner in a private room. Service throughout was excellent. Fixed menu dinner was excellent; service geat; plenty of hors d'oeuvres to begin, well presented and well cooked dinner. The main restaurant was very dimly lit however and not sure I could have read the menu or seen what I was eating in there, but... More

Menu is a bit eclectic with a few Tex-Mex items included. We usually have one of their gargantuan hamburgers, easily taking half home. Lunch entrees are good. Everything tastes good. Wine list is adequate and staff attentive.

The two of us attended a champagne dinner last night and loved it. A delightful flight of champagnes. A five course meal featuring a spring roll with shrimp, poke, bison steak, and short rib, all finishing with a butterscotch brownie with ice cream. All excellent. The usual outstanding service. Will continue to go to the Mercury. Nice job Chris. JLP.

We were disappointed to find this another load, trendy restaurant now when visiting this past Friday night. The good food and great atmosphere of the past is just another restaurant in the long list of chef's making food for presentation rather than taste and enjoyment. I know things change but this one is one that is sad.

Thank Yourtime
