Our son was married in March in California. We wanted to do a Minnesota reception for all the family and friends that were unable to attend the wedding. March 1st would were told he could have leave to come home the second week of June and he wanted a more casual reception for this one. We were able to secure the "tent" at the Mermaid which looked beautiful that night and added menu items that we wanted. We did an hors d'oeuvres from cheeseburger slider bar to lumpia to an ice cream sundae station instead of a wedding cake. The staff was great and was on top of everything. Carol checked on us during the evening and the bartender was pleasant and professional and our guests loved chatting with her. It was a great evening and most importantly for us it was a stress free evening. I would definitely recommend the Mermaid.

I was a bride on a low budget, but still wanted the feel of an elegant wedding and the Mermaid delivered in spades! The chicken cordon bleu was amazing! We had Carol as our wedding coordinator and she was so patient with all my questions and changes throughout the process. She understood my vision and was with me the entire way. I must have sent her over 50 emails from the time we booked the site to the wedding day and she was always professional, personable and friendly. She explained legalities in a way that we understood. Loved her!!! One of the other reasons we chose the venue is the hotel attached. We had people come in from out of town and we hung out at the bar/restaurant/bowling alley/pool tables all weekend. There was so much to do in one location that we didn't need to go anywhere else!

I would highly recommend the Mermaid for your wedding reception. They responded almost immediately to every question I had through the planning process, and even came to check in with how things were going during the reception. They also took care of coordinating with other vendors, set up all the centerpieces and place settings, and also set up the cake table, name card table, and gift table. The food was great; We received tons of complements from guests that their food was very good. And we were table to take home the left over meals no one ate but we paid for. It was a great event and I would choose them if I had to do it all over again!

I highly recommend the Mermaid Entertainment Center in Mounds View, MN for anyone looking for an amazing event venue. You will not find a better coordinator than Natallia, she covers every detail for you and offers amazing suggestions you may not have thought of previously! Our reception turned out better than expected with her help and her decorating advice.
Mermaids 'Coral Bay' ballroom is amazing as is with prelit ceiling lights. The staff is so courteous and helpful at the end of the evening for clean up; we would not have gotten that done on our own :)

Planning a wedding can be such a stressful time, expecially when it comes down to the final week or two. The Mermaid (specifically, Carol) provided such excellent service, always answered questions promptly and had everything completely organized and taken care of, definitely relieving alot of stress! I also really appreciated Melissa taking care of all details of the Atlantis Room, arranging everything so beautifully. Everything turned out perfect!

We worked with Carol at the Mermaid. I think she was our top favorite person to work with through the entire planning process. Carol helped us understand things were didn't think we would ever comprehend. We had our wedding on a Friday night and saved lots of $$. Carol did a WONDERFUL job walking us through every detail, and still there were times I was confused or couldn't visualize the setup. I knew we were doing something a little non-traditional having the ceremony and reception at the same place, but having our guest sit at tables. When I came into the tent on rehearsal night, I was blown away!!!! Carol did an EXCELLENT job putting things together!

The day of our wedding, she was there and was able to help with any last minute details. She even held the door as I walked into the tent for the first time. The food portions at the Mermaid were ridiculously large. My husband and I til this day are sad we couldn't eat any of it (who eats on your wedding day, I thought it was a myth, but we seriously couldn't).

The hotel room was great and we appreciated the bottle of champagne and card left for us from Carol.

I have to give the Mermaid 5 stars, because our ceremony, reception, rehersal, hotel room, guest rooms, food, and staff were amazing!! There was one thing out of anyone's control. Who would have thought that the first snow fall would come on our wedding night, 10/09/2009, which meant it was pretty chilly!

Working with The Mermaid and Carol Back in particular was one of my greatest experiences while planning my wedding. She was not the first planner that we met with or signed on with at The Mermaid, but stayed with us through the year and our event. Carol is excellent at her job, and really made us feel like The Mermaid wanted our business. They made certain exceptions to their rules and helped us in more ways then I thought a reception hall ever would. For example, when our church would not allow us to get in until 1 hour before the ceremony, The Mermaid offered us two rooms to get ready in so that we could just leave our stuff and cars at the site and get them once we were done getting married - two rooms for only $100 rented from 6am-9pm! This saved us tons of stress moving people around, we were able to have our transportation pick us up at The Mermaid before the wedding and then return there after - no cars to shuffle, no bags to haul. It was wonderful. The Mermaid was our favorite vendor by far and we would love to work with them again. As far as the catering, the food was from what I hear, some of the best the guests had ever had at a wedding. I didn't get to eat a whole lot, but from what I tasted at the wedding and tasting, I knew it was good! Kudos to the whole Mermaid team, each person did a wonderful job at helping us get through the wedding day without any snags. A++++

The Mermaid was a great place to host a wedding reception. We did majority of our work with Carol Aune and she was amazing. She was quick to answer any of our questions and we really enjoyed working with her.

The venue itself is great. It was important to us that we had a hotel connected and having the AmericInn attached was perfect. We had our reception in the Atlantis Ballroom which in my eyes is the best of the 3 areas. It's not your typical ballroom and it's not a tent. The Mermaid staff did a fantastic job of getting all of our decor set up and we were really pleased.

The only thing I could say that was "disappointing" was that we ordered whipped potatoes with butter, but they served garlic mashed. It was actually quite tasty, but not what we had ordered. To be honest, the fact that the only thing I can complain about is the potato screw-up means that this place is amazing!

If you're looking for a good value, convenient location, and outstanding service...then The Mermaid is your place!

We had our reception in the Coral Bay Ballroom. The room looked beautiful with their black table cloths and purple fabric napkins. We were able to choose black or white cloths and napkin color to match our wedding colors. Since we got married on a Friday, they threw in a lot of things for free like a champagne toast and mirror tiles on every table, as well as upgrading from white table cloths to black ones (usually 3 dollars a table) The cake cutting fee and split plate fee were also waved... Getting married on a Friday definitely has its perks :)

From the very first interaction, I was very impressed. I mostly dealt with just Natallia and she was very good. Prompt to respond to any questions I had via e-mail or phone. She would always clarify everything and never assumed a thing.

They gave us girls the hospitality suite to get ready in for a measly $25 clean-up fee!! The room was large enough for me, my 3 BM’s and my mom to get ready in, get our hair and make-up done in. It worked very well!

They gave Russ and I a BEAUTIFUL bridal suite for FREE for the night of the reception. It was huge and gorgeous and had a fireplace and Jacuzzi tub.

The food was delicious and we received many compliments on the meal…especially from parents whose children ate the delicious kids meals consisting of chicken fingers, french fries and apple sauce. The hors d’ oeuvres we selected were rampaged, so they must have been good (didn’t even get a chance to try them).

A LOT of people asked us on multiple occasions how we stumbled upon this venue because they loved it. Several people even mentioned loved ones that they knew were getting married and how they were going to recommend the Mermaid to them.

We also hosted our rehearsal dinner here. There was no room rental or minimum for the RD, which was nice. We took the opportunity to do something a little more fun and got their “Stadium Buffet” which was grilled chicken breasts, brats and hamburgers. It also came with potato salad, coleslaw, corn on the cob, all the fixings for the burgers, coffee, tea and cookies. It was wonderful! The meal was very “us”.

My husband and I had such a great experience having our reception at The Mermaid. It was in the Coral Bay Ballroom. I was looking at another venue that nickel and dimed you for every little thing (plates, silverware, EVERYTHING). The Mermaid proved to be the best choice! They decorate for you! That was huge for me, I didn't have time to decorate. The food was great, the people we worked with were amazing, and we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful spot to have our reception! Our friends and family were telling us it was the best wedding they had ever been to! :-)
