Mermaids and Cowboys, a surf and turf restaurant with an upscale feel, opened in La Jolla on March 11, 2021, after a hiatus, due to the pandemic.
According to their website, this uniquely themed restaurant “marries ocean and land through the rich history of the Pearl Diving Mermaids of Japan and the historic Cattle Ranches of La Jolla.”
Like many new and existing restaurants opening their doors to the public during the pandemic, Mermaids and Cowboys started serving their offerings through outside seating for dining and dinner service. The restaurant intends to offer a launch happy hour, weekend brunch, and lunch once it is safe for indoor dining.
Regardless of whether patrons are eating inside or outside, the Mermaids and Cowboys’ staff dedicate themselves to serving delectable dishes, including everything from porterhouse steak to Main lobster, and make sure you leave room for one (or more) of their playfully named desserts.
