The Mermaid Inn East Village

New York’s favorite fish house serves up classic seafood specialties in a relaxed and comfortable setting. Danny Abrams’ flagship Mermaid Inn, dubbed an inexpensive version of Le Bernardin by New York Magazine -- features a cozy, secluded garden in back, sidewalk café in the front and a dining room that’s always buzzing. The cuisine and the décor are sure to bring back your favorite memories of New England. Belly up to the bar and wash down some ice cold oysters with expertly crafted cocktails, or drop by between 5:30 – 7:00pm for Happy Hour & a Half - dollar oysters, drink specials, and a snack menu in the entire restaurant. And if you love wine, The Mermaid’s well selected wine list means you’ll find some gems and some splurges that won’t break the bank.

"We're a bit spoiled by our local seafood place, Crave Fishbar, but our dinner here was quite good. Oysters were very fresh, but were poorly shucked with lots of shards. Our server was unfamiliar with the available varieties i.e. did not really know which were big or small, etc., but was happy to inquire of others and ended up bringing us ones we enjoyed. Octopus was very disappointing - really rubbery and near inedible. But fish tacos were the star - really good. Service was generally friendly but not very efficient - we had to ask for several items more than once. All in all, en enjoyable if not exceptional meal."

"The dollar oyster happy hour is really a rip. You can barely find any "meat" in the oysters. I wind up buying 3 dozen oysters just to get my fill. It's better to get other food items. Other than the oysters the food is great. Fresh and delicious."

"I took my mom here for her 77th birthday. She loved it, and so did I. Mermaid Inn's food is excellent, and its ambiance isn't too stuffy for me or too hectic for mom. The waiter even overheard us talking about my mom's birthday, so he brought my mom her chocolate pudding with a lit candle! Great service, too. Thank you!"

"This was our first time trying the 2nd avenue location after first going to the Mermaid Inn Oyster Bar, definitely a larger space better for groups and those looking for a quieter meal. Still the same great food, highly recommend trying the fish tacos and oyster specials at happy hour!"

"Go here for the oysters and maybe a drink.
I had lobster roll as well, which was $29 for quite a small sandwich (with LOTS of over-salted french fries), which tasted nothing special. (there weren't many lobster pieces inside.)
The service is excellent and friendly."

"Nice cozy vibe. The food was so delicious. Nice staff. Good wine, not over-priced. Clams were fresh, octopus sooooo good. The skate in brown butter with apples on a squash purée was the most scrumptious meal I've had in a while. I've been to restaurants that wish they were this. Could be romantic but was not too date-y. I was there with a non-date friend, and I noticed other tables were also. Staff were so attentive and chill. I look forward to going again."

"Mermaid Inn is one of my favorite seafood spots. I especially love the happy hour $1 oysters and snacks with a glass of wine at the bar. The staff and patrons are always super friendly so you can be comfortable if you are with a group or alone. Cozy enough for a romantic date yet casual enough for a group of friends. Always delicious. In the summer a sidewalk table at sunset is a perfect East Village evening."

"So I ordered the "almost famous lobster roll" and mmmm certainly raised Agee concerns firstly when I order lobster of any kind I generally expect lobster so find a shrimp tail inside my roll not only made me question the fact they are cheating out on mixing lobster and shrimp meat in order to make the dish more profitable for the owners but did not appreciate finding a tail mid bite. I must admit it was dealt with well by staff but overall it is a noisy place that I would only recommend if you want a fast bite and nothing special."

"I've been to all 3 Mermaids in NYC many times. It us a great place but this time the food seemed off. My oysters were small and with little taste - I recommend oysters from Maine and PEI rather than more southern, warmer locations with large cities like this dozen from Chesapeake Bay. My wife's calamari was undercooked with no flavor. After a few bites, we waited and the server graciously replaced it with fish tacos - better. No charge for the calamari. Service was tops in all ways."
