1. The Mermaid Inn 568 Amsterdam Ave, New York, NY 10024 (Upper West Side)

The uptown outpost of The Mermaid Inn is a near replica of its East Village sibling, complete with maritime decor and New England fish shack vibes. An oyster happy hour, which features $1 chef's choice oysters and littleneck clams daily, is the stand-out offering, but you'll want to camp out all day for the non-bivalve options like beer batter fish tacos, lobster rolls, and sides like Old Bay-seasoned fries and hush puppies. The kitchen saves the best for last, though: all diners get a complimentary cup of chocolate mousse for dessert.
