The Mermaid Oyster Bar is a warm, friendly, casually sophisticated neighborhood meeting place for dining, drinking and socializing. We serve seafood inspired from the North Atlantic and the Mediterranean. All our food is extremely fresh. “From the sea to the table” is how we like to put it.

Happy hour daily from 4:30 - 6:30 pm. $1.50 oysters & clams, drink specials and Mermaid favorites like our fish tacos, shrimp sliders and more.

Swim on by we look forward to serving you soon!

    We’ve been to 2 other Mermaid restaurants (Times Square & East Village) & we’ve liked them all. At the MacDougal St. venue, we enjoyed the oysters & some small plates — tuna crisp, salmon tartar, & fish tacos. Good service and nice atmosphere. Good cocktails.

    Really love the food at Mermaid Oyster Bar and on our most recent visit the service was also incredible! We were celebrating a friend and they went out of their way to make her feel special. Our waitress was wonderful and everything came out quickly (and was delicious).

    Thank you for the complimentary champagne toast and candle at the end of the meal for the birthday celebration. Mermaid will always be our favorite spot. Great service and remarkable hospitality. Thank you.

    Used to love this place - still good oysters & cocktails. The fries are usually amazing but were totally overdone this time. Service is fine - but they get slammed with happy hour people. The manager was great and comped our fries because server forgot condiments for about 30 minutes. It’s overpriced for the quality but what isn’t these days? Still great oysters.
