The Mermaid Oyster Bar
Oyster happy hour is the best and the oysters weren’t bad either. Also liked the scallops. Very nicely done on a great pea sauce.
This is such a great place for happy hour on a Monday! One of my favorite places for fantastic oysters as well 👍🧜♀️
Seafood tower is good. Wish you could swap items - clams were quite salty. Nice staff!
Food was, as always, great. Fresh, delicious and served well.
Very noisy until happy hours was over and then quit pleasant.
Excellent food, service...just everything! I will definitely go again.
Mermaid Oyster Bar’s happy hour, which runs all night on Mondays, is outstanding value for raw seafood (oysters and clams), and they also offer a good range of cocktails and other seafood choices in the happy hour specials. Lively vibe with friendly service.
One of the best oyster happy hour deals in town. Terrific service, great food. Acoustics terrible but that seems to be what they’re aiming for. A fun spot.
My lovely place ever!!!
❤️ without any more words!!!
Fantastic food and service, highly recommend the lobster roll. Great happy hour spot as well.
So good! We order the large platter for three and it was delicious.
Too noisy and too expensive for the atmosphere. No privacy at all
If you love happy hour and seafood go here the best deal in NYC on Oysters and Clams.
Make a reservation they book up quickly.
Always a great experience with a lovely waitress.
This was easily one of the most enjoyable dining experiences I've had in a very long time. I would say it was perfection since there isn't one aspect of it that I can find any fault with. Came here with an out of town guest and between the ambience, cuisine and service it was a home run. I've visited the Mermaid Inn on the UWS which I enjoyed but this Mermaid Oyster Bar has left an impression that makes me want to return again and again. The food was beautifully prepared and presented... everything incredibly fresh and our server was extremely knowledgeable and warm. Looking forward to the next time. A winner!
I enjoyed the food - happy hour is a great deal. One caution - its very loud! If you are looking to have a conversation you may end up waiting to have it after you eat.
Love this place! Very consistent service and food!
Service was ambivalent.
The AC was not working and the service was poor.
I really like this place. Would you consider giving me a 50 dollars gift card to come back. Thank you so much. My number is(646) 533-5208.
I’ve been going here for years and can’t deny that I will always have a soft spot for this place. Their happy hour deals are not bad at all. Food is tasty and I’d say worth the money.
I won’t recommend it for a date, tbh. Unfortunately, it’s quite loud in here, the space is on the small side. Pretty small that you won’t even know where to place yourself while waiting for your table. It gets packed pretty easily.
The best calamari we’ve ever had! Monday’s Happy Hour there is perfection in menu and cocktails! Wonderful staff ~ we went once, came back two weeks later with a bunch of friends, and can’t wait to return!
It was good!
Been coming here regularly for over 3 years. This is my favorite happy hour / dinner spot in NYC for a value meal. Great oysters and one of my favorite lobster rolls in the city.
Great food, consistent oysters. Drinks are also good
Love coming here, always great service. Clean restaurant with a super cool nautical vibe. Happy hour food and drink are some of the best in the city. Smaller portions but it’s all so great!
Too crowded here during HH. Even when we have a reservation, they try to move our seats around so that they can maximize their seating space, which is understandable, but not enjoyable as a customer. Also, the servers and staff are always coming to take away dishes and clearing the table when we're not even ready to leave. Feels like the staff are rushing customer to hurry up and eat and drink and get out of there so that they can turn the table around for the next customers. It's not the same vibrant cool relax mermaid oysters inn like before.
Go there all the time, my favorite Oyster joint in NYC
We came here last year based on Open Table recommendation and loved it. We went again this year and again loved it! The oysters were so tasty!
Main course was a little slow to come, but it was worth the wait. Impeccably prepared food, excellent oyster choice. Dessert is whatever single thing they have that night. Thankfully it was very tasty.
Lovely food and staff.
Best happy hour in the city. Oysters are always fresh. Lobster rolls are amazing. Servers and management are friendly and Busser’s are very attentive without being intrusive. Our go to spot when in town!
Had a really delicious meal trying out the oysters, lobster roll, and scallops. All were fantastic. We also had the lobster corn fritters and they were the bomb. Great service to round out a fun dinner in a cute place. Happy hour menu looked good, too!
Noisy, but the food is wonderful--Love happy hour!! good value
Really enjoyed everything! The tuna crisp and the strobes bass were both delicious. Great happy hour deal as well! Rly fun time
Very much enjoyed the whole experience. It was a birthday dinner, and it felt celebratory while maintaining a casual vibe.
The oyster special of the day wasn’t as good as usual but overall a fantastic experience with great staff and superb menu. (And a great value)
The food is amazing, the service is top notch and the setting is like stepping into an oasis. Definitely one of our new favorites.
Rawbar food was great. Cooked food (salmon [oreder medium rare] and scallops) were good but overdone, which shouldn't happen at a seafood place with few cooked items on the menu!
An excellent experience. Food, service, atmosphere all top-notch. Well worth the trip.
One of my favorite places for oyster happy hour in the city! And the food is always so good.
