Reviews for The Mermaid Inn

While everyone raves about 7-day/week happy hour (and it is great), The Mermaid Inn is far too good to be known for just that! Every time I have a friend visit me in the city, Mermaid is on our to-do list. I've gone for every meal they offer, and it's consistently solid. My go-to's are the lobster roll, shishito peppers, calamari, and buttered hot rolls. The lobster roll is yummy and a good size. Shishito peppers are perfectly blistered with big pieces of sea salt.

It's a fine restaurant. The food is always good, the ambience is always friendly, and the service is always great. Having been a long-standing patron of the restaurant, I've noticed a few changes. You used to get some crackers and butter on the table immediately, before you'd order anything. Now, if you want bread ( a brioche and butter), you have to pay for it. You don't get the crackers and butter anymore. And at the end of the meal, you'd get a very thin piece of plastic full review

I love Mermaid. The service was pretty poor last night. We sat outside and there was one waiter for the entire section. I would have ordered more drinks and stuff, but we just sat not being attended to. Food is always delicious. I wish the happy hour snacks were available for full price throughout the night!
