“Great Happy Hour Specials”

Not too many places in NYC have great specials and GREAT food. The Mermaid Inn's $1 oysters happy hour special is a must try for all New Yorkers.

Great food, service and ambience all for reasonable prices for New York. Complimentary small dessert at the end was a very nice touch.

“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.
