    The Mermaid Inn has been open for years and continues to be a favorite among locals. The Upper West Side restaurant, one of three Manhattan locations, made brunch lobster rolls possible. Read more

    Dollar oysters, killer happy hour. Feel a little aphrodisiac and little booze buzzy.

    Amazing oyster happy hour. No seats at the bar? Don't worry. They'll still seat you at a table

    The tuna crudo was perfect for a warm summer night. Two days after my meal, and I am still thinking of it. Also, make a reservation to skip the wait! #notfried #notoily #rawbar

    The freshest oysters I've ever had! The surf and turf tacos are amazing & the trout was perfect. I couldn't have anticipated such great food and service across the board! 5 stars! Hidden gem in UWS

    Mussels are killer but always ask for extra bread. It's a meal in itself. Also check out the seasonal cocktail list always something delicious.

    Great lobster roll, and the mac-n-cheese side was good too. The fortune teller fish were a fun touch!

    They have Old Bay fries... Old bay fries! The lobster roll didn't blow me out of the water, but still good. This is a good option for HH if you want to munch on oysters, fried oysters, calamari, etc.

    A seafood place for pancakes? Yes, we said it! These crunchy on the outside, yet soft on the inside pancakes are prepared with cornmeal batter to give you that Southern taste.

    Came here for happy hour and was not disappointed at all! The dollar oysters are fresh and the drinks are $8, although not the cheapest, and quite strong.

    Bloody Mary fans: try the Mermaid Mary. It has a serious kick and comes with a cocktail shrimp and cornichon.

    Lobster roll is a little formal on brioche bun, but tasty all the same. Come here for the happy hour specials - $1 oysters!

    Back room for privacy and to feel like your cool and part of a secret club, front room little more public. Both great. Love this place, consistently excellent.

    The Escargot was cooked delightfully, with delicious sauce and bread crumbs, and it's so filling!

    The lobster roll is so big and delicious. It comes on a very buttery bun and with plenty of fries, seasoned with old bay.

    For $8 you can get a cocktail normally priced at $13. Beers and wines are priced at $5 and $7 respectively. You can also get dollar oysters during happy hour, which goes from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
