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

  • review rating 5  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.

  • review rating 5  We went there for breakfast. This is an older place but has been kept up. The waitress was very friendly and intentive to our table. The food came out quickly and received a good portion for the the value. The food was good and reasonably priced. I would eat there again.

  • 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  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 5  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!

  • 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 4  My family and I went Mercer's restaurant for dinner. The employee were very friendly and knowledgeable about there menu. We all had the all you can eat shrimp and chips it was very good. And refills were on point never taking very long. I only have one complaint, were a pair of slip resistant shoe the floors are very slippery. Other then that we will be returning again real soon.
