Mermaid themed restaurant coming to downtown Biloxi
How would you like to be waited on by mermaids? A new restaurant bar coming to Biloxi could soon be reality.
Today, Shady’s Mermaid Bar and Grille held a job fair and is hoping to open within the next month, but has run into a few problems.
Biloxi residents who live nearby have shown opposition to the new business that is on Pass Road and after being declined a live entertainment permit from the City of Biloxi, owners of the bar and grille say they still plan on opening and want people to know what they have to offer. Shady’s Mermaid Bar and Grille Owner Farabee Shafer said, “We are going to be family friendly. We have a great kids menu called Little Sea Urchin’s menu. We’re going to be family friend. We are going to appeal to older people, young kids. Everybody loves mermaids.”
Residents have also voiced their concerns over parking in the area. Owners of the restaurant and bar will be attending the next city council meeting in August in hopes of resolving the issue.
