The Mermaid Inn is a warm, friendly, casually sophisticated neighborhood meeting place for dining, drinking and socializing. We serve seafood inspired from the North Atlantic and the Mediterranean. All our food is extremely fresh. “From the sea to the table” is how we like to put it. Happy hour Monday-all day, Tuesday-Sunday from 4:30 - 6:30 pm. $1.50 oysters & clams, drink specials and Mermaid favorites like our fish tacos, shrimp sliders and more. Swim on by we look forward to serving you soon!

    Waitress was good, food was good. However, when the bus boy was cleaning the table he picked a plate up over my head and spilled oil al over my face, glasses and clothing. He didn't apologize until later. There was nothing to check if me or my attire were ok or ruined...

    We stopped by at 4:30 pm when they opened. We decided to sit at the bar. Peter was our bar tender and he was attentive and friendly. We partook in their Happy Hour which is the way to go, in my opinion. We had drinks and food. The oysters were delicious and presented well with mignonette and cocktail sauce. We also had the fried calamari which was also nicely prepared. The mini chowder(4 spoonfuls) and fish taco (2 bites) were very mini. I would order 1 per person if you want more than 1 bite. The restaurant fills up quickly and by 5:30 was almost full. I would highly recommend Mermaid Inn.

    The limited brunch menu left a lot to be desired. We had the tuna crudo (very thick and large chunks of tuna and avocado). I ate one bite and couldn’t choke down more. We had a dozen oysters which was fine. We shared the fish tacos which were bland and flavorless. The ambiance was non-existent, just an empty and quiet space. It was shocking that after those 3 dishes the bill was almost $200. I’ve been here before for dinner which is great but the brunch was a very poor experience. We left and had a second lunch elsewhere.
