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
My Dad took my sister and I out for lunch, Mercers is his favorite place to go eat. I ordered BUT and fries. It was the best ever This is a family type cafe.... The service is outstanding
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!
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.
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.
I love this place! The staff is super nice and you don't wait long to be served, the servings are plentiful and tasty. The prices are very reasonable. This place is A gem!
This was a family favorite of my father in law and his friends. They were regular patrons over the years. The staff, Brenda and all are great people and they are a friend to all. Great home cooking withe good portions and affordable prices. The restaurant has a great decor. It makes eating more interesting!!! Thank you Brenda and staff for your hospitality and friendship with my father in law and his friends. Hope to see you soon!!! ☺️
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.
Always have a great meal here. The people make you feel like your family. And the service is excellent. If you're in a hurry you can always count on ordering and receiving your food in amazingly short time
We have lived here in Sun City for over a year. We have had many breakfasts and dinners here, especially when family visits. I can say, without reservation, that we have not been disappointed at all. The food is constantly good, the menu satisfies a decent range of appetites, the prices are modest, and the service is the best. The staff works well together and share in caring for the needs of the tables. When we want to go out to eat, Mercer's is always considered.
Nice little family style restaurant with great food options and great service. We had a breakfast dish with eggs and bacon which was great. Our other dish was the prime rib sandwich which was also great. The staff was very friendly and we had a great time. We'll be back for sure!
