Welcome to Mercer's Restaurant!

With humble beginnings, we opened up the doors to Mercer's Restaurant in 1987. With a baby in tow, who is now managing the restaurant, we were excited to make home-cooked meals for our neighboring friends. We were welcomed with open arms by the community and have been able to continue serving you because of all the people that help make Mercer's Restaurant the enjoyable and friendly restaurant it is today. From the cooks to the dishwashers to the waitress who greets you at the door, we are here to help you have an enjoyable and relaxing meal. When you step into our father-son restaurant, we want you to feel like you are pulling up a chair at your best friend's table, with a comforting environment and even more comforting, delicious food. 

If you have visited Mercer's a couple of times, don't be surprised if the waitress remembers your name. Before you know it, you will feel like you are part of the Mercer's family as well! We are so grateful to have customers who have visited us across many, many years and have created a family-like environment in the restaurant. 

We are always trying out new daily specials, so if there is something you don't see on the menu, just ask! We welcome new dish ideas and may even be able to make it in the back. 

We know you have numerous options when choosing a restaurant to spend your time and money at and we appreciate you visiting Mercer's website. Come on in and give us a try - we have a hot cup of coffee and warm smile waiting for you.

What our customers say

  • So many memories here. It's been many years since we've stopped at Mercer's since moving to the other side of town. Today we decided to take the trip to the place my father in law loved to share breakfast with us as a family so many times. He has since passed away, but the memories will never fade. Mercer's sits in a old and a bit run down and quiet shopping center in Sun City. There's always plenty of parking, but be prepared to wait on Sunday Mornings and well into lunch time.

  • This place is tucked away in an unassuming, older shopping center and frequented by locals. The food is what you'd expect from an American diner. It's good and usually busy, especially on Friday's for their all-you-can-eat fish and shrimp dinner. This isn't your average fish fry Friday. You get a salad or soup, choice of fries, mashed or baked potato (get the baked potato!), plus your fish and/or shrimp - holy moly, it's a lot of food & at a fair price. Two thumbs up!

  • Been going here for more than 20 years. It seems like it has never changed much over the years. It’s kinda like going to grandma’s. Time seems to stand still. The food is deliciously cooked to perfection and the service is efficient and friendly.

  • Mercer's is consistently good. A hearty meal and just what you ordered. Staff is accepting of special requests. My chef salad was particularly good. Breakfast is always good, and quite a large serving. I would not suggest ordering the red wine, I don't know what brand it is, but it is not pleasant. They also offer mixed drinks.

  • Can't beat this place. Fantastic american comfort food with some of the very best servers in the area. Kelly sets the bar for service and the owner is a very hard working man.

  • We have been here at other times, and I'd seen the chicken pot pie served in it's own pot. It looks like it's baked in it. So, I finally had to try it on the last night of our trip. It was delicious. Very much a comfort food like Grandma might make! The service is always efficient and friendly too. I really enjoy this place. The prices are very reasonable.
