“Delicious!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

I've gone to Mermaid Inn a few times before and it's always lovely. I've celebrated birthdays with a small group of friends, had an after work drink, and a romantic evening. Was there recently and finally decided to review it. Great food, service, nice wine list and cool environment.

“Very romantic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

Fantastic service and very nice seafood. Ordered catfish and seafood pasta. I will recommend the pasta If you're very hungry (more food.) The backyard is super-romantic and perfect for a cosy evening with that "special one."

Four of us dined at Mermaid Inn and enjoyed yummy oysters, catch of the day, catfish and the spaghetti. All of it delicious.
Would return and recommend.

“Would come back again!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

Lovely time at this establishment. I highly recommend the calamari salad. All of its salty goodness. The catfish was probably the best I've ever had. Paired with sweet hush puppies and the deepest green collards.

“Great Thursday Outing!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

Terrific meal at Mermaid Inn last week. Service was amazing and even went out of their way to make it special for our 8 year old. Lobster Roll, Mahi Mahi, Oysters, etc. all exceptional and reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a great place on the Upper West Side!
