The Mermaid Inn Uptown

The East Village's favorite fish shack is now the Upper West Side's favorite as well, with a second location at 570 Amsterdam Avenue, near 88th St. Danny Abrams, who has owned and operated some of the city's favorite restaurants, including The Red Cat and The Harrison, is the principle owner, and Michael Cressotti is their corporate executive chef. Swim on over for Mermaid Inn favorites like the Lobster Sandwich with Old Bay Fries, seared Skate wing, Mermaid fish tacos, or the Happiest of Happy Hours. On Sundays, join The Mermaid for Lobsterpalooza: $26 for a pound & a quarter lobster, red bliss potatoes & grilled corn on the cob. The uptown location also features an expanded raw bar, brunch and the same casual and cozy "shore feel" as the downtown spot.

"Arrived in time for Happy Hour. The special drinks were reasonably priced and great as were the oysters. Shared the grilled octopus, crab cake and mac and cheese, the perfect dinner! Staff was exceptional, attentive without being overbearing. Really had a wonderful time!"

"This is my first time at Mermaid Inn. The food was very good, but the whole dining experience was like eating in a noisy factory. The tables are very close together affording no privacy or sense of space, the restaurant is quite loud with chatter and bad acoustics, and the service, though quite polite and gracious, has the distinct quality of moving you along promptly so that the table can be turned over. The waiter even spoke quickly and was impatient and persistent in a pseudo- friendly way.
For what it's worth, most of the patrons don't appear to be very intelligent. They may have little idea what dining is all about.

"I was so excited to try the Mermaid Inn's brunch, however, I'm sorry to say it was less than inspired. I ordered the Eggs Benedict with Smoked Salmon-- there was hardly any hollandaise or smoked salmon and the eggs were over cooked. My companion got scrambled eggs with toast and potatoes, which were fine, not great. The atmosphere is fantastic, so I'm very disappointed that the food doesn't match. For prices like that, I expected a fun brunch experience. Sorry to say it didn't deliver."

"Eating here is great. In this neighborhood gem you get wonderful food and terrific service. Reservations can be hard to come by and during happy hour, if you are seated in the bar area, it's a little noisy for conversation. Otherwise, simply wonderful!"

"Attractive room - now expanded next door - feels like 3 times larger - means 3 times louder - too noisy for this diner. Wait staff helpful and attentative. Food better than average - three fish tacos were tasty but had better elsewhere and for less money. Overall disappointing. To spend that amount of money and not have a relaxing experience - why return."

"I ordered the " almost famous lobster roll" and found a shrimp tail in the sandwich. It was very disappointing that this establishment would put their integrity and reputation in jeopardy by combining lobster and shrimp in order to cut costs. Also saddening is the fact that my girlfriend is allergic to shrimp and might've had some since her salmon was cold and she managed to eat only half of it, the staff was nice and when I told my waiter about the shrimp he did seem concerned, but I feel like nothing changed when he said he'd let them know in the back, management or maybe the chef must not care about those types of things. Restaurant had a nice ambiance and it wasn't too crowded, the only downside was my 29$ lobster roll with shrimp. I wouldn't waste my money here, plenty of places in NYC"
