Upscale but casual seafood with a focus on oysters and spring/summer drinks. Expansive, with a decent patio and a excellent outdoor garden - menu is hit and miss, and staff is aggressively incompetent.
I know that everyone comes here for the oysters but I come here for the octopus. It's my favorite grilled octopus in the city. I know that's surprising but I love it. Also like the dessert chocolate at the end.
For a long time I've been hitting up Mermaid Inn for their awesome oyster happy hour specials, but recently went for dinner for the first time. The experience was even better. Now I know... you gotta start with the happy hour special and keep cruising.
Try it! You'll like it! The water's warm!
