The Mermaid Oyster Bar
Good food good drinks fun vibe!
Amazing! The service was great, the drinks were amazing! The oysters fresh and delicious! The salmon tartare is OUT OF THIS WORLD! Wish they sold that in like a jar or something. Highly recommend.
Favorite neighborhood spot! Consistently delicious seafood, nice servers and hosts, cute ambiance, and a nice happy hour. It does get busy with waits around happy hour. Favorites are the seared calamari, lobster knuckles escargot, and the striped bass. Only minor drawback is that it's always pretty hot at the tables near the kitchen, but that would never stop me from coming back. Love this place.
Delightful restaurant with a great happy hour! We had the calamari and the fried oysters from the happy hour menu and shared the lobster knuckles and a few other small plates. My husband is not a raw oyster man but what I saw they looked wonderful! The restaurant was quaint and the service excellent. We will return and send lots of family and friends to this spot!
Sat basically in the bathroom
Food was delicious and service was pleasant the crab cakes were amazing. Oysters on point! The striped bass was perfect. I wouldn’t order lobster knuckle escargot again. The flavor was good the lobster was over cooked. The onion rings were done so well. The house Sauvignon Blanc was refreshing with a grapefruit taste. I Reserved the table on OpenTable and wasn’t excited about the actual table I was given. I wish I was at a bigger table because the chair was a stool and Was uncomfortable to sit on. the waitress was Friendly.
Mermaid Oyster Bar never disappoints. Fantastic selection of fresh oysters served properly chilled and shucked. The octopus is amazingly tender, the lobster roll has the right amount of mayo to meat, the fish tacos are great and the service is impeccable The chocolate pudding is always a lovely finish. Been here many times. Always great.
Great for a date or even a dinner before hitting up one of many legendary comedy clubs on the same street.
Wow! What a happy hour and we went beyond the oysters and clams, basically bought dinner plates and shared. Excellent, fresh, real seafood, no gimmicks, and great value for NYC. Try the octopus and any of the fish specials of the day. Will definitely be back.
Very nice oyster!! and other foods!!
I recommend this restaurant!!
It's very cost-effective!
Best oysters for the price. Unbeatable.
Really great, I enjoyed the ambiance a lot. Not too loud, but energetic enough to keep the evening going. Awesome value!!
Always a great place to meet friends or colleagues for a casual evening.
Happy hour menu accommodates most palates for a bit of seafood.
Yes, the Mermaid Oyster Bar is the perfect setting for a friend/family reunion. The food is always outstanding and the seafood always tastes fresh. The Clam Chowder is a hit and the Lobster Roll is delicious as well, those were my two options. Excellent atmosphere.
The Mermaid Oyster Bar was lovely. Oysters were from an interesting range of east /west coast locations. Our meals were great, but servers a little too ambitious. We felt rushed the second our appetizer was finished and our entree immediately appeared. Located in full of energy Village. We will come back and try happy hour
Noise level was loud but not due to music just some loud patrons. Great time though!
Food was great. The service was awesome. Relaxed dining. Overall awesome experience.
Good food and friendly service. Generous portions. Went for happy hour ended up being a regular.
Went for our anniversary dinner and were not disappointed. Number of starters between the two of us - I also wanted to try a raw oyster and this was accommodated by the chef. Food was superb and I felt the portion sizes weee great. Nice cocktail but would have liked to see a better variety on offer. Service was outstanding, attentive but not overbearing and good attention to detail. Comfortable and nice vibe. Nice acknowledgment of our anniversary too. Sad there wasn’t anything other than drip coffee at the end. Espresso would have been welcome.
A great old standard. It's popular for a reason, especially weekend happy hours. Delicious West Coast oysters (chef's choice) for $1.25 each? How can you beat that? Plus the crab dip and mini lobster rolls are on point. Definitely check it out, but get there right at 4 for weekend happy hour, or you'll be waiting.
Great location, food and most of all, amazing oysters!!!
Went for dinner prior to a show. Luckily we were there for happy hour. We ordered many oysters (fantastic) and other apps (the lobster roll was the best ever!). The service was wonderful. We will be back!
We went during happy hour and took full advantage of great drinks, wonderful oysters on the half shell and also fried, fish tacos, clams on the half shell.. you name it! Had a great time. Service was perfect both in terms of timing and tone. We will definitely go again’
We love oysters and clams and the happy hour special for both is superb. Added in with great drink choices and it is a home run. Our server Michaela was wonderful, she even warned us that happy hour was ending in 5 min in case we wanted more !
Happy hour is the best deal going - plenty of low price snacks including discounted oysters on the half shell.
What a nice place it is!
It's an optimized place to eat alone, and the servers are so friendly. I used Happy hour to visit, and it tasted so good and I always recommended it to my friends in New York.
Cheery atmosphere, knowledgeable and efficient staff. Food was generally good. Crab dip was only so-so. Glad to have been seated in a quieter place.
The fish and seafood is so fresh and tasty. Would 100% come back. Oyster happy hour is amazing!
Always good.. it’s one of my favorite neighborhood spots..
Phenomenal. Great happy hour, excellent food, and excellent service.
Came here for a happy hour with my gf, and we both loved it! Great ambience and specials.
Very overpriced for what it
Always a great experience. Definately go for Happy Hour. The Oysters and Shrimp sliders were amazing. Always busy so make sure to make a reservation.
Portion size way too small for the price. Not worth the time or money at all!
Great happy hour seven days a week with tons of choices for both appetizers and drinks. Lots of cocktails, beer and wine choices. Everything was delicious and service was outstanding. Loved the restaurant. Very quaint
I went here 2 years ago , it used to be one of my fav restaurants, but this time I came back , a bit disappointed. The food was not as expected
The oysters and salmon tartar tacos were very good, but the red snapper entrée was just ok.
Great happy hour dinner experience, really enjoyed it. Nice ambience, great service, excellent food and value for money.
