Excellent food and service...only downside was the venue was cramped and crowded.
Monday night ritual...Oyster Happy Hour all night long. The best thing to look forward to!
Bartender was very accommodating, happy hour specials were awesome!
Best place for oysters. Our family tradition when we come to visit our daughter in NYU.
Great happy hour for raw bar
Oysters are some of the best I've had in NYC. Also had the grilled hanger steak which was amazing. Happy hour has great deals and $1 oysters. Fun atmosphere and great service.
The oysters, lobster roll, clam
Chowder were all delicious. Like the happy hour. Our hostess was wonderful. Gave us list of places to go in the Village for live music. The server was okay. A little condescending.
It's pretty dark and noisy but we loved the food!!
Excellent service, very well managed, and the food never disappoints. Whatever cooked dishes you order will be delicious. Oysters and clams are always impeccably fresh and well-shucked. Highly recommended.
Excellent as advertised. Tuna and oysters dishes were tops
Great food and service. Waitress was very attentive during HH.
Delightful and accommodating staff. Delicious food. Brought teens for a sophisticated birthday dinner. Just lovely.
This is such an adorable spot for a casual date! My boyfriend and I loved the cheap drinks and oysters on the Happy Hour menu, and the decor is very cute. It feels like you've escaped to Montauk for a meal :)
From the greeting at the door to the nice little cup of complimentary chocolate pudding accompanied by the fun future predictor; I thoroughly enjoyed my Friday evening meal here.
I’ve been enjoying the Mermaid Inn for close to 10 years and really hope to continue to do so for a very long time.
Impressive consistency of amazing, inventive delicious food is key and these people have nailed it!
The best food and service I have had!!! Our server Cameron was amazing/ and the seafood was to die for💓💓💓
We went during happy hour and it was unbearably noisy. i will not return although the food was acceptable.
Great lobster roll!
Food and service were fabulous but the place was so loud that we screamed at each other all night. I'll come back during the week versus a Saturday night.
Wonderful meal, great service in a beachy-laid back atmosphere. The 5 of us enjoyed our meal including a dozen oysters on happy hour special, generously filled lobster rolls, hot hush puppies and crunchy fish tacos. The service was attentive without being intrusive. Easy going beach atmosphere. Would definitely come back & reservations a must.
Lovely meal from start to finish! It was a packed house but we weren’t jostled too terribly much (personal pet peeve). Highly recommend doing an assortment of smaller dishes with some oysters thrown in. Will def be going back!
Great place to eat
Amazing happy hour
This is the second visit for my boyfriend and I. Its our new favorite date place. Happy hour has some amazing oysters at $1.25!!! the Shrimp Sliders and the fish tacos are to die for.
The bartender, although he is very busy, is very attentive and the staff are friendly and accommodating.
Can't wait for the warmer weather to go back and sit with the windows open and enjoy the MERMAID OYSTER BAR!
Great oysters! Cheap, too!...during happy hour.
Music was kind of loud, though.
Really fun place with an excellent seafood menu, very friendly service and good value for the quality. My only critique is that I wish they offered a better sparkling wine by the glass.
Connected with a buddy in town for a meeting and had great experience...highly recommend
As always, the oysters were fresh and delicious. the restaurant is cozy and service is very good.
We had a lot of fun. Oysters from hurricane island in Maine were a special surprise for us. Service was excellent. I had told them it was my husband’s birthday and they brought out little cups of mousse for us all with a candle for Will.
Fantastic happy hour every time. Always good and interesting oysters, not the usual suspects that other places offer. Good happy hour drinks and delicious additional menu options for happy hour. Also, the lobster knuckles (served escargot style) are an absolute delight!
Service was very good. Food was delicious. We arrived early but they had no problems to find us seats. Will definitely recommend and will definitely go back.
Excellent place, delicious food!
It was my third Time there, but definetely not the last one!
Great food, delicious cocktails, exceptional service
Fun, cozy place. Great service and oysters!!!
Everything was great but I can’t believe they serve Tilapia. It’s just not a quality fish. And it’s so expensive here! That said the lobster roll was delicious as were the mussels.
Fabulous place. Great happy hour oysters and wine. Great, friendly staff.
Great food, seafood selection excellent, service meh.
We go back year after year in February for the fresh oysters at a special price!!!
Mermaid is our go to oyster bar, especially if we can get there during happy hours. Can’t beat $1 oysters and a decent wine selection. They always accommodate my oyster poboy request even though it’s no longer on the menu. First try on the fish and chips was a disappointment, usually go for the fish tacos which are excellent. Nice people, good service. Go
First group to dine and they opened the doors at 5pm. The waitress and the staff were very helpful and did not lurk.
A cozy, hip, reliable oyster bar with exceptional small plates, solid oysters, and delightful drinks.
