    The daily selection of up to 16 kinds of fresh oysters goes for around $2.50 each – though there’s a “happy hour and a half” each day from 5:30 to 7pm when East Coast oysters go for just $1 a pop.

    As the name would indicate, we love to come here for amazing oysters (especially when they're only $1 during happy hour). Zach Braff is a part owner here, so never know when he may stop by!

    Got the baby grand platter, loved the barcat west coast oysters, not the kusshi & crudo yelowtail is delish! got a free side for checking in, seared asparagus needs flavor.. but i love the mermaid inn

    Can't go wrong with anything here, but three must-haves: happy hour oysters ($1!), the yellowfin tuna crudo (flavor bomb), and the lobster & corn fritters (yowza).

    $1 oysters, littleneck clams for happy hour, usually ones with a crisp finish. FYI the happy hour is all night on Mondays. They also have tender steak (get it rare) and my fav lobster roll.

    One and a half hours of Happy. Their Long Island $1 Oysters are hugely popularly. Also loved the clam chowder. Reasonable portions for the price paid & attentive + polite servers. I am a happy camper!

    Hands down favorite oyster place in the city. Daily $1 happy hour is usually the Barcat which I recommend you pair with the fried calamari, old bay fries, and happy hour white wine.

    One of my favorite places to get oysters. They always have about 12 different types and they mix it up pretty regularly (usually half East cost and half West coast). Dirty cheap during happy hour.

    Eat at the beautiful bar if you can. Lobster roll is gorgeous. Opt for the side of asparagus. Skip the Mermaid Mary and get the Seaside Rendezvous to sip on beforehand.

    1st time at this location, I love this company. No kids menu at this location so ordered off the sides. Best oyster happy hour in city. Quality of oysters and food is amazing!

    Great daily happy hour & Yelp/Foursquare deals, plus lovely touches such as complimentary multigrain crackers, pudding desserts, and a flappy "fortune fish." Affordable and nautically charming.
  • Lindsey K.
    $1 happy hour oysters and red curry mussels are the way to go. Sop up every bit of sauce with the buttery toast they provide.

    Happy Hour is a fantastic deal. The lobster roll at regular price was not a good deal - skimpy, although tasty (and a TON of delicious fries). Staff are great.

    Everyone comes here for the Happy Hour. You'll likely have a significant wait if you come anytime after 5:30. But you'll love it here, that's almost guaranteed (by me, anyways!).

    Delicious oyster happy hour special. Try a dozen mix of east and west coast for $1-$1.75 each. Cocktail happy hour specials are impeccable. Great service as well.

    Happy Hour Oysters! Loved the "Washburns", sweet, salty, crisp, light, yet full of flavor, my favorite oyster there. The Charred Octopus was also delicious 🐙👍🏻

    Seared calamari with frisée is by far the best salad I have had in ages. I could eat it for days. Absolutely amazing little seafood spot. 🐙🐟🐠🐡🐚🐬🐳

    The Tuesday lobster roll special is a must! Make sure your server brings you your complimentary beer! Use the Foursquare special for a free side 😚.

    Same fare and excellent HH like the EV location, but their Bloody Mary mix has celery salt in it, unlike the EV mix.

    Do NOT get the Hot&Dirty cocktail on the happy hour menu. It is basically cheap vodka with splashes if hot sauce. House wine is good though. Oysters are fresh, service is friendly.

    The oysters are fresh and delicious, but the rest of the menu is great too. Pickled jalapeño in the fish taco adds some tangy kick!
  • Natalie V.
    All night happy hour on Mondays! The food is delicious - fried oyster slider is a fav - and the pink flamingo cocktail is good too.

    Definitely try the seared calamari salad - smokey grill marks on the squid and mushrooms pair beautifully with the salad and feta.

    $1 raw oysters during happy hour were amazing! They were shucked so well! I would pay more than $1 for them any day!

    Do not pass up happy hour 'till 7. It's a great excuse to order oysters by the dozen.
