I had the salmon and I wasn't disappointed. I can go here for casual lunch or fine dinner, I love coming here during the off season. Jaz was spot on, the bar tenders were a bit on the slow slide, but everything else made up...for it.More

During our stay at the Westin, we ate lunch at the Nauti two days. Do not miss the Fish 🌮🌮🌮 Tacos! Our server, Sue, was superb! She even called us by name on the second day. 😃

Cat was the funniest bartender I’ve met, absolutely beautiful place to grab a nightcap and enjoy the salty breeze and good vibes! Highly recommend!

Bartenders are old and lack personable demeanor, drinks are nothing special, food service is terrible. The only thing going for this place is atmosphere.

Cat is the best bartender at the Naughti Mermaid! She is so personal able, makes great drinks, and loves her job! I would totally recommend going there and having her as a bartender!

Heard a lot about this but was very disappointed. Could tell they were short handed. Wait times were high even when we got there way before dinner time. Lots of empty tables. Many patrons sat in them and were told to get up because they...were not ready to seat them. Food was not all that impressive. Tried to get drink from bar while waiting, that was about 30 minutes before helped while standing there.More

I had a great time at the Nauti Mermaid, I’m always craving seafood and their fish tacos and appetizers did not disappoint! Jazmyn was a great server and helped me decide between cocktails and even made a great dessert suggestion! Would recommend for others for...their first time in Cape CoralMore

This is a regular stop for us as we live nearby. The service at the bar is normally good but varies widely with who is on duty. Beautiful scenery and atmosphere. The menu lacks a lot and is pricey for what you get. I call...it a missed opportunity; if the food and service were better it would be the best location in the area.More

It was my first time dining at the naughty mermaid and let me tell you I was impressed. To start my service was excellent. Jazmyn was my waitress for the night and she did not miss a beat. As a cook of 10 years I...tend to knit pick everything at a restaurant. Jazmyn was quick,courteous and professional. I never had to wait for a refill on my drinks and she recommended the Mahi tacos for my meal. THEY WERE DELICIOUS Mahi was perfectly cooked and the food was hot. Fish for me can be very hit or miss but I’m glad Jazmyn recommended them. I will return and hope Jazmyn is working!More

They did have shirts hanging at the bar. I assume they were for sale.

Motown Mondays are fun. How can a Happy Hour be bad when one's view is spectacular from the outside area. Bands are from time to time. No price breaks on drinks. Well...for example, on Mondays, drinks are $4 across the... More

Seasonal. However, every Monday from 6-9pm is Motown Monday and the singer is fabulous.
