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.

  • Wow is all I can WOW! The food reminds me of my grandmas homemade cooking. Definitely a place you wanna go with an empty stomach. Service was good too. I’ll definitely be back.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • Nice little place, has been around like 3 decades, and everything so far has been great. The fish fry on Tues/Friday is awesome having both time I've been there so far, and saw some get the largest rack of ribs ever I'm trying next time.

  • 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.

  • Absolutely the best food and service we have been coming here for years. We absolutely LOVE Brazilia! She is the sweetest and best server we had so much fun with her. We love Mercers and will always be loyal regulars!
