Great place to eat
Amazing happy hour
This is the second visit for my boyfriend and I. Its our new favorite date place. Happy hour has some amazing oysters at $1.25!!! the Shrimp Sliders and the fish tacos are to die for.
The bartender, although he is very busy, is very attentive and the staff are friendly and accommodating.
Can't wait for the warmer weather to go back and sit with the windows open and enjoy the MERMAID OYSTER BAR!
Great oysters! Cheap, too!...during happy hour.
Music was kind of loud, though.
Really fun place with an excellent seafood menu, very friendly service and good value for the quality. My only critique is that I wish they offered a better sparkling wine by the glass.
Connected with a buddy in town for a meeting and had great experience...highly recommend
As always, the oysters were fresh and delicious. the restaurant is cozy and service is very good.
We had a lot of fun. Oysters from hurricane island in Maine were a special surprise for us. Service was excellent. I had told them it was my husband’s birthday and they brought out little cups of mousse for us all with a candle for Will.
Fantastic happy hour every time. Always good and interesting oysters, not the usual suspects that other places offer. Good happy hour drinks and delicious additional menu options for happy hour. Also, the lobster knuckles (served escargot style) are an absolute delight!
Service was very good. Food was delicious. We arrived early but they had no problems to find us seats. Will definitely recommend and will definitely go back.
Excellent place, delicious food!
It was my third Time there, but definetely not the last one!
Great food, delicious cocktails, exceptional service
Fun, cozy place. Great service and oysters!!!
Everything was great but I can’t believe they serve Tilapia. It’s just not a quality fish. And it’s so expensive here! That said the lobster roll was delicious as were the mussels.
Fabulous place. Great happy hour oysters and wine. Great, friendly staff.
Great food, seafood selection excellent, service meh.
We go back year after year in February for the fresh oysters at a special price!!!
Mermaid is our go to oyster bar, especially if we can get there during happy hours. Can’t beat $1 oysters and a decent wine selection. They always accommodate my oyster poboy request even though it’s no longer on the menu. First try on the fish and chips was a disappointment, usually go for the fish tacos which are excellent. Nice people, good service. Go
First group to dine and they opened the doors at 5pm. The waitress and the staff were very helpful and did not lurk.
A cozy, hip, reliable oyster bar with exceptional small plates, solid oysters, and delightful drinks.
Great place and great food.
The only thing was that we had to wait 30 minutes for the reservation that we booked through Open Table. But we had a few glasses of wine while we stood in the bar so it wasn’t too bad. I’d go back!
Fantastic fresh seafood! Great service
Aperol spritz was wonderful, made me excited for summer! Loved the shareable plated, one of the best happy hours in town.
Food was good and service was wonderful!!
Happy hour and food is perfect as always. My go to for all things oyster in the city. Thanks Mermaid!
Great food and service. Very noisy.
What a wonderful and filling happy hour menu!
One of our favorite Happy Hour spots . Always love the Oysters and whatever dish we pair with them
Have been coming here for years!
Will be back again.
Went for happy hour. Great food, drink and service.
Great lobster happy hour on Sunday. First time I’m trying it and not disappointed.
The restaurant was really great, a big oyster selection, good drinks. My husband and I shared a dozen of East and West coast oysters, all of which were on point, tuna tartare tacos, which are a must, and lobster claws escargot style, which was also very good. We also had one lobster roll each, which was absolutely divine! The service was great, everyone was very attentive to us. Really highly recommend!
Always fabulous. Got there early and took advantage of their amazing happy hour!
We had a birthday celebration here recently. Started with Happy Hour and went into dinner. The raw oyster and clams are the freshest I’ve ever tasted, huge and cleaned well with no grit.
The ambiance was warm and welcoming and the service excellent and attentive. Waitress brought out complimentary pudding with candle for my friend’s birthday and the rest of the party. Appreciate that the waitress read my comment that this was a birthday celebration on the Open table reservation.
I definitely will be back and recommend this restaurant to all my friends and family for a relaxing and lovely evening dinner.
Love it. I visited the one on second avenue and wanted to try this one. Great food at affordable prices. Excellent service .
This was our 3rd visit in less than two weeks to the McDougal location. The food was consistently good. Happy hour oysters and littleneck clams were excellent. Will definitely go back again!
NYE was excellent
We go to Mermaid all the time. The first time we ever went was in on an October day hours before my husband proposed to me, so bear it mind this place has some sentimentality to it. Even the high top tables are actually pretty comfortable. I've ALWAYS felt like the staff were super nice, and that they're all really really efficient there. The food is always banging, and we LOVE happy hour so much that we skipped their very alluring pre-fixe on NYE. The oysters are always really fresh, and the portions are great. I think they have an outside, which we've yet to experience. NOTE: this place is SO different to the Mermaid Inn in the east village. I know it's the same "chain", but the staff there were just not friendly, and the food didn't cut it for us. If you're going this winter, you HAVE to get the mini clam chowder on the happy hour menu. Cheers, Mermaid West Village for always making our day and our stomachs happy and full. <3
Food and Service were excellent !
