We have been to this place on several different occasions now, and it has never failed to deliver. The staff is excellent from the moment you walk in to the moment you walk out. They are attentive, warm, efficient and never intrusive. The food is always very good. For me, the fresh, raw oysters are a big draw. The selection and quality is very good. We tend to like a bunch of the appetizers along with something bubbly. This place doesn't disappoint.

Unfortunately the food was overcooked which made the visit unsatisfactory. Fish & Chips were terrible - not even fries, just a bed of crunchies. Not much fish for the price, all breading/fried. Didn't know it would be pickled vegetables, so was unable to eat those. Salmon wasn't good, and I had been there before and had the same dish. Felt like either the Sunday night chef was different or it's gone downhill since before. They no longer offer the fortune telling fish (due to sustainability), but that gave it a fun touch.

We are frequent flyers at The Mermaid Oyster Bar. The food is outstanding, the service is wonderful, the drinks are perfect, but most of all we just feel so happy and comfortable there. It's really one of our favorite spots in the city.

We were a party of 4 and had a delightful booth in the front room but in the back corner so we were away from the bar crowd. The happy hour here is unsurpassed with dollar oysters and a nice selection of $9 cocktails. Our scallop dinners were tender and excellent and the fish taco was fresh and tasty. We loved our small plates, especially the happy hour clam chowder. Highly recommend for a casual dinner or fabulous happy hour deal, especially if you love oysters!
