Blue Mermaid swims across the river. After 23 years of operating the Blue Mermaid in Portsmouth, we are pleased to announce we have made a bitter/sweet decision to move the Blue Mermaid to Kittery. We will continue to do food and beverage off-site catering throughout the summer as well as acquire a food truck to keep Blue Mermaid flavors available to the public.

If you belong to a local non-profit, we’d love to help support your cause.

Just sign up for a Community Giving Day at the Blue Mermaid and we’ll make a cash contribution to your organization. All you have to do is invite your friends, supporters and board of directors to come dine at the Blue Mermaid, any day of your choice Sunday through Thursday. You’ll receive ten percent of your supporters’ dining proceeds!

Here’s how it works: Call the Blue Mermaid to arrange your Community Giving Day. We’ll send you a letter specifying your date & cause for you to send to all your supporters. Your supporters are required to bring the letter to the Blue Mermaid or use a promo code to let us know they are there for you. And, it does work to raise important funds for your organization, just see what we did for the Bow Lake Dam race to benefit Cystic Fibrosis below!

To book your Community Giving day, please call Scott or Karen at the Blue Mermaid @ 603-427-2583.


“The Blue Mermaid hosted a community giving day that benefited the 1st annualBow Lake Dam 15K/5K that was a run for Cystic Fibrosis. We basically threw a party at their restaurant with a band and everything. Good times were had by all and 10% of the proceeds we brought in were graciously donated to our cause. The Blue Mermaid was instrumental in helping us spread the word and exceed our expectations for our race. We look forward to doing it again next year. Thank you Blue Mermaid for helping out your community!”
