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!
hope they have some happy hour dinner menus! but their happy hour oyster was good!
Food was fantastic! Only issue we had was that one of our dishes came out very late. Otherwise, this place is definitely one of my favorites.
Had such a wonderful time at Oyster Bar! Im definitely a big fan of this spot, especially for their happy hour! But the lobster roll and clam chowder was amazing, highly recommend
Such a great little (not so) secret.. happy hour, great service too. Not too crowded, not too noisy. Lovely.
Excellent. Nice staff, great menu. Friendly service and good food
Amazing place! Atmosphere was beautiful and service was great. Had so much fun that I went back twice during happy hour xx
Delicious oysters, but had to wait a bit for a table with a reservation.
A treat every time!
Very cozy ambience. Lobster knuckles and oysters were delicious. Service was fantastic. We would go back!
Excellent food. Friendly and very efficient service by entire staff. The noise level was literally 90 to 95db at points during the meal (I checked on my app a few times). I’d go back for sure just not during a busy peak time when it is so loud.
Oysters were tasty as always. Usually I’ve found service to be excellent. On Friday, our server seemed a bit off her game that evening, but those things happen.
Always love visiting the Mermaid. Great neighborhood & great food!
This was my second time at this establishment. I was very impressed with the quality of the food and drinks, as well as the outstanding service and friendliness of the staff.
Absolutely going back again.
Food is always good, including the happy hour oysters. Best fish and chips I’ve had in a while and the fish tacos are excellent. Good people, good service. Can get a little pricey if you get into bottles of wine.
Buono il grand platter di crudi, con diverse varietà di ostriche. Atmosfera tranquilla, servizio un po' veloce.
great restaurant — neighborhood fem
Be sure to request a table in the back room unless you like noise and extreme crowding. Service was efficient, courteous and helpful. Tables are very close together but the back room was tolerable, at least after departure of particularly noisy neighbors.
Went for the NYE prefix.. super reasonably priced compared to others out there but honestly felt a bit rushed the whole night.
We were there new year's Eve and a shame that they didn't mention that only a menu was served upon reservation. Food is good and nice service.
Great service and food selection. Oysters were great!
Delicious oysters, lobster rolls and cocktails. Staff super friendly and accommodating 😍
Oysters should still be alive when served and they were not. This raises a red flag in terms of how fresh they are. Other than that everything was delicious.
