Best sea food Happy Hour in New York City!
The mussels might have been the best thing i've ever eaten. First time and definitely would come back, the food and service were stellar, would love to come back for happy hour soon
Food was really tasty, and there was a wonderful neighborhood feel about the place. Would definitely return.
Really fine oysters and seafood. Our best happy hours in NYC. Just a little bit noisy but full of life!!
A go to for happy hour! We always get clams oysters and calamari
Always an amazing experience. Love this place!! Fresh oysters, great happy hour prices and always excellent food.
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.
Happy hour at MOB is always a treat. Delicious crisp and salty Chunu oysters this time.
The restaurant was lively and the food was amazing!
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.
Very good seafood, original recipes, fresh oysters, beautiful decor, always a pleasure to go there, want to come more often!
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!
Always beyond our expectations. Love this restaurant!
Service is always great. Can’t beat the delicious happy hour oysters.
Perfect! Love the cocktails and the oysters could not have been more delicious!
