    Valentine Dinner

    Love fish and love oysters my date, not so much. I ordered 6 east coast oysters on the half shell, date ordered the mussels. The conversation ended once the food arrived, which was pretty quick on a crowded night. Embarrassing, all you heard from our table were food moans. The sauce for my oyster was great but the mussels were over the top delish. Yes, my fork snuck its way over to the bowl and grabbed a few. They were plump and juicy and the sauce accented the flavor of the mussel not overpower them. Perfect balance. Main: date ordered turf and surf I ordered fish tacos. My tacos were perfect blend of crunch and heat but the star attraction was the surf from the turf and surf. Service was friendly helpful and attentive without being intrusive. It was a perfect evening.

    Great place for Oysters

    Went hear during Happy Hour on a Friday night. 1 dollar Oysters were great as was the other items on the happy hour menu. Also had the Surf and Turf which was really good. Drinks were reasonable and service was good to. It was very crowded when we got there and was told it would be about an hour wait but were seated within 30 minutes.

    Good oysters, bad food

    I think if I decide to come back here o would only have the oysters. They were good and fresh and the prosecco we had with it was delicious. We then ordered the lobster "sandwich" each which came with old bay fries and were extremely disappointed. The lobster came on a large brioche style burger bun which was on the verge of being burnt and the lobster was tasteless. The fries were way over seasoned with old bay seasoning so was practically inedible. The 2 lobster rolls came to $52 which would have been reasonable if it was good but even the amount of lobster we got was disgraceful. The only other highlight apart from the oysters was the complementary dessert, a chocolate moose which was yum.

    4 stars only?! I don't think so.

    Mermaid is what Pearl Oyster Bar should aspire to be but never will. Friendly staff, fantastic lobster roll, sexy wedge salad, comfy but elegant atmosphere, like being in a Hamptons living room without the pretentiousness. Don't question it, go!

    Great Happy Hour

    Check out the happy hour at the Mermaid - 1-2$ oysters, 3$ shrimp corndogs, 7$ cocktails - fantastic deal! The only downside is that the food is not amazing. Of course the oysters are great - but the shrimp corndogs were just ok and the salmon tartare was somewhat uninspired. But service was fantastic, the drinks were stiff, and the oysters were cheap....

    Don't go for the Crabs

    I am not one to write a negative review but as a proud Baltimorean I feel it is my duty to review the Maryland Crab Boil at Mermaid Oyster Bar. I don’t want my fellow Baltimoreans to be disappointed or for first timers to think that this is what the hype is all about. The price wasn't so bad ($24 for 4-5 crabs, potatoes, corn bread and corn on the cob) but the crabs were TINY and ALL female. It is a lot of work for barely any meat and just not worth it. In Maryland a dozen large crabs go for about $75. My advice to Mermaid is get better crabs and charge more. It is well worth it.
