The Mermaid Oyster Bar

Upon entering Mermaid Oyster Bar, diners feel as though they have escaped the city on a beach vacation. Offering delicious food in a welcoming atmosphere, patrons can enjoy a relaxing and leisurely dining experience away from the hustle & bustle of busy New York City streets. Bringing a bite of the beach to the West Village, this casual neighborhood spot combines a laid-back fish shack mentality with a menu that reads like an oyster bar’s greatest hits: an extensive raw bar; clam shack favorites like steamers, mussels and fried oysters; and a variety of simply prepared whole fish and fish sandwiches. The cocktails and beers on tap and the rollicking classic rock-country playlist evoke the nostalgia of summer on every visit.

"I was pleasantly surprised on my visit to Mermaid Inn on MacDougal. I have been to the other locations and not impressed. This location though had a great energy and vibe. The food is nothing fancy but very solid. Recommend the crab tostada, lobster rolls and fish tacos."

"Loved the food, service was fabulous, but we were 2, and seated at a high-top table that was jammed up against a wall, so it was crowded, and not particularly comfortable. In future, I'll stick to the uptown venue, same great menu, more room."

"Our experience was FABULOUS! I came here with BFF to begin a year long celebration for my 50th birthday and Mermaid was a great place to start it off. Our server, Katie Witt, was on point with her interactions, her food suggestions and her personality was infectious! Great way to start my celebrating!"

"I came to the mermaid oyster bar and expected to have a nice experience. I was looking forward to eating the well known lobster roll. During my meal, I found a shrimp tail inside my lobster roll while I was chewing. I was in total shock. It is not a good move by this establishment. Food not good and service below average. Very upsetting to say the least. I don't recommend this restaurant to anyone."

"The dining experience lived up to the review I read before making a reservation. Loved the tuna tacos, mini clam chowder for Happy Hour. I chose the restaurant for the oysters and they were good but not the highlight of my evening. The service was excellent. I felt well taken care of and will return again when in New York."

"We came for happy hour (on a Sunday!) and had a great time. They feature $1 chef's choice oysters and clams as well as a half-dozen or so cooked items during happy hour. We sampled the fish tacos, clam chowder, and fried oysters which were all excellent. We also tried the fried calamari which were a bit over-battered and over-fried - the only real complaint of the meal. The roasted market fish (dorade) was also excellently prepared and seasoned. Overall, great value and good food all around. We will be back again for happy hour."

"The highlights for us were the fresh oysters (especially Montauk), the fish taco and shrimp slider. Service was very attentive and helpful. That said, this place is good, but not great. Too many miscues, like way overdone lobster knuckles served escargot style. The consistency of the octopus was fine, but it was lacking in flavor. Cocktail special was a bit uninteresting by today's standards."
