Service
 
Like dining “at the shore” , these New England–inspired “standbys” supply “spot-on” seafood highlighted by a most “worthy lobster roll” ; trade-offs include “high decibels” and “tight quarters” (although the expanded UWS outpost is “more comfortable” ), especially when the “unbeatable happy hour” rolls around with its “swell” oyster deals.

Raw bar Love the Mermaid's raw oyster happy hour! I have been here several times now. My best friend and I are huge fans of raw oysters with mignonette sauce! We have tried several varieties of the raw oysters to date and have loved all of them (the bottles of bubbly haven't been bad either.) The bar gets super crowded so you have to get there a bit early to get a seat but if you love raw oysters and mignonette sauce, I recommend trying the place.

First, I'd like to applaud the outstanding customer service; the team really went above and beyond. I lost apple airpods and thinking they were long gone, called the restaurant. Rosie, I think her name was, was very kind and checked the lost and found. They were there, and a nice gentleman let me retrieve them while they were closed. Thank you, thank you! Second, the food/ambiance was exceptional. Great happy hour specials. A standout was the escargot-style lobster knuckles (very unique) and the grilled octopus. Of course the oysters were great too. Thanks for an all around wonderful experience and for being so conscientious with your customer's lost belongings. I look forward to coming back.

Awesome place with $1.25 happy hour oysters! Loved the $1 clams even more. Fantastic place for lobster rolls, and the service is surprisingly really quick. Got a complimentary chocolate mousse too!
