The East Village's favorite fish shack is now the Upper West Side's favorite as well, with a second location at 568 Amsterdam Avenue, near 88th St. Danny Abrams, who has owned and operated some of the city's favorite restaurants, including The Red Cat and The Harrison, is the principle owner, and Michael Cressotti is their corporate executive chef. Swim on over for Mermaid Inn favorites like the Lobster Sandwich with Old Bay Fries, seared Skate wing, Mermaid fish tacos, or the Happiest of Happy Hours. On Sundays, join The Mermaid for Lobsterpalooza: $26 for a pound & a quarter lobster, red bliss potatoes & grilled corn on the cob. The uptown location also features an expanded raw bar, brunch and the same casual and cozy "shore feel" as the downtown spot. <br />

"The service was great, the food was overcooked. Our salmon was well done, we ordered it medium rare. That vegetables were salted to heavily. French press coffee was excellent."

"The food was local and some organic options. We placed our order and waited 45 minutes for a salad and a cup of soup. The food is very tasty and some creative options too."

"It's great to have a fresh lobster you can dive into at a NYC restaurant. Sundays book up quick and they can run out of lobster, so book early. The oyster selection is fantastic as well. Great service!"
