The Mermaid Inn Uptown
Swim on over for Mermaid Inn favorites like the lobster roll with Old Bay fries, seared skate wing, Mermaid fish tacos and the Happiest of Happy Hours.
he uptown location also features an expanded raw bar, brunch and the same casual and cozy "shore feel" as the downtown spot.
Danny Abrams, who has owned and operated some of the city's most beloved restaurants (including The Red Cat and The Harrison), is the principle owner, and Michael Cressotti is their corporate executive chef.
Great happy hour deals!
Mermaid Inn is the perfect seafood restaurant that every neighborhood needs. The menu is imaginative, the food fresh and delicious, the service professional . We are fortunate to have this as our neighborhood fish spot.
Fresh and well-cooked seafood with an enticing happy hour makes the Inn very popular for good reason.
Awesome service, really lovely environment, great menu and deelish food!
Cheerful charming restaurant with delicious food
Been to Mermaid Oyster Bar (Greenwich Village) number of times, but this was first time uptown. Loved it :) Bigger than downtown, but still has that cozy feel. Food / Service is equally excellent. Good job! Many thanks.
Love it here, but even though we had a reservation they still gave my 80yo mom a hard time about what table we could have. But it was great otherwise.
Great Happy Hour Menu!
Have always loved this place. Found it very loud this time, primarily due to one very loud and inappropriate party. Food was good as usual, service very good.
Not many gf df options for a pescetarian with allergies unfortunately. Waitresses was awesome only complaint re her was that when serving free desserts she realised I couldn’t eat it and offered coffee instead which suggested it was free, when actually we were charged for it.
Food not bad but just maybe for ourselves not as good as expected especially at the price.
Side note brussel sprouts with pecans was AMAAAAZING!!
Excellent experience all around. Service, food, ambience! !!!
Great, as always. Never disappointed here, except when Jen left.
The noise is overwhelming. The only time to time here is at 5 PM or sit outside even if it is 20°
Great place, good energy, excellent service. Not the place to go for the finest cuisine in the world, just excellent fresh, well-cooked seafood in a lively atmosphere.
Menu needs to be updated, enlarged. Pretty loud, but fun.
We had the oysters happy hour and they were just amazin! Great octopus salad too, cocktails could be better.
Excellent staff. So attentive. Food was super. Loved the kale salad and my tuna was a big portion and so tasty
Always a great experience ..... good food and honestly, the service is amazing. That goes a long way.
My first time there. It lived up to the good reviews. Great upscale, casual atmosphere. Inventive cocktails and fish dishes. We all thouroughly enjoyed our food. The sever was professional with an engaging, but not overbearing presence. I will go again.
I am a regular. I am there usually every Friday night. Even as a vegetarian I find a few things. I also appreciate a few of the staff who value regulars.
Fantastic service and great brunch menu. The cheeseburger is one of the best I've had!
Great New Years Eve! The special fixed menu was amazing and a great value. Ethan and Mike were both amazing. All of the staff was really friendly and engaged, especially for a holiday I am sure they would have preferred to spend with friends and family.
The Risotto course was out of this world and for a spot that specializes in seafood, the steak was one of the best I’ve had!
Going to The Mermaid Inn has become a New Year's Eve tradition. It's a great menu, wonderful food as always, and exceptional value. A fun, busy atmosphere for the evening as well, without being completely packed. Highly recommend
New Year Eve prix fixe meal was outstanding. Food was really excellent and portions were huge considering the low $75 price. I often eat there but this menu was above the usual standards.
The food was delicious and service was wonderful!
Food was delicious as always! Host, DC, was so welcoming! And I loved the hat & dirty cocktail with extra peppadews!
This is our third time at The Mermaid Inn on the UWS. The food has always been good and we love the atmosphere. This is a great brunch spot and a good place to bring friends and/or family.
Food and service are outstanding
We love the Mermaid Inn! We eat there each time we are in NYC.
Good service. Take advantage of happy hour for discount.
Couldn’t love it more.
The Happy Hour at the Mermaid Inn is paradise for a NYC oyster lover. We ate a dozen each. They are a fabulous place to have in the neighborhood.
Really good food at reasonable prices with excellent service.
I go beers all the time with friends and family. It has a nice ambiance for date night in the the evening. I like the cocktails !
Love the Mermaid Inn. Have been several times and always have a wonderful time. Food is great and it has a lovely convivial atmosphere.
It was very nice, lived up to the reviews.
Awesome service and food! Mermaid’s happy hour is not to be beat on the Upper West!
Great service, friendly waiter, great food, nice table location. All around really good meal and experience.
We went for Happy Hour and were impressed by the warmth, efficiency, ambiance and food. The host was amiable and when my husband asked for a nice table, he took us to a great table by the window which was festively decorated for the holidays. As soon as we sat down, we were offered water and menus. Our server quickly followed and took our order. She was lovely with a sparkling personality. Throughout dinner she checked on us without intruding and gave us warning when Happy Hour was ending for last call. What a star! The Happy Hour drinks and food menu were full of choices and extremely good value. Oysters were fresh and ample. Fish tacos were well prepared with nice chunks of avocado and fresh fried fish. We also took vegetable sides like beets and shishito peppers. Portions were ample and well prepared. This is our neighborhood happy hour spot and we will continue to go. Quality never varies from the height of summer to the depths of winter. I highly recommend it to all!
Happy Hour is such an amazing deal, love that you can get it at the tables. Oysters were top notch. Service also wonderful. Love it there!
