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

  • 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.

  • 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 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.
