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.

  • review rating 5  Wonderful service! Servers kept coffee and water filled at all times. We enjoyed the Greek omelette, fresh spinach, diced tomatoes, olives and generous serving of feta cheese. I'm not a big fan of breakfast foods, so this omelette could have been easily shared with another person. We stopped by here before from El Paso Texas and we will stop in again on our way to Sun City. Highly recommended.

  • review rating 5  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.

  • review rating 4  My daughter-in-law's family introduced me to Mercer's. Mercer's is a local restaurant that has many regulars who eat there because they serve good quality food that patrons love. My personal favorite is a salmon salad with Greek dressing. It's a perfect size and very filling.

  • review rating 5  Excellent food and service. Efficient staff who serve the hot food quickly. My fav dish is the broiled salmon dinner with numerous sides. Nod to the chef for great cooking skills. Felt 1980s retro vibes and prices. My friend could not believe her 10 oz rib eye was so good and priced so reasonably. Will return again to the hidden treasure in Peoria.

  • review rating 5  Home style cooking! My husband and I eat here once a week sometimes 2x. We've ordered breakfasts, lunches and dinners over the past 4 years - I've never had a bad meal there. Love the staff, owner and place. It's like being at home but you get to order what to eat instead of what mom makes. Be sure to try the deserts!

  • review rating 5  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.

  • review rating 5  Great food, quiet atmosphere. We usually go every weekend which replaced our previous corporate dining and has been very delightful so far. If they're busy, attention is only slightly lacking. Everything I've tried thus far, which has ranged from breakfast to lunch items, has been well portioned, and priced.

  • review rating 5  The food is good. The service is very good. The atmosphere is decent. Takeout is a breeze. The prices are good. For the kind of restaurant they are, they hit the nail on the head.
