Located just outside Mystic, CT, Octagon prides itself on offering the finest steaks and freshest seafood everyday. Our menu changes seasonally and celebrates local ingredients harvested right here in our beautiful state of Connecticut. To our pleasure, our guests are travelers from around the globe and neighborhood locals. From our open grill and wine cellar to our one of a kind artwork and glass sculptures, we truly believe dining should be an experience, not just a meal.

Simply put, a sub par steak house for Premium prices. Very noisy with kids packed everywhere. Great for people if you have kids, but would not recommend for couples trying to have a quiet evening. Steak was overcooked, and sides just did not taste high quality. Average cost of about 70 dollars pp for your meal with no Drinks. At... More

Everything was perfectly prepared and delicious. Our waitress, Mary was great and despite it being quiet busy for a weeknight, the manager checked in with our table... More

Just had our anniversary dinner at Octagon at the Marriott in Groton. What a great experience! We were seated on time, ordered delicious martinis by a very good server, Angela, who knew when to approach and when to stay away. The lobster bisque is the best I have had and their dragon soup was a treat. We decided to get... More

Due to a snowstorm, we stopped for the night and had dinner at Octagon. Food was wonderful! Mom had scallops with mushroom risotto and I had swordfish steak with black quinoa. Great food, great service by Nathaniel - we will definitely make a regular stop here! Unexpected delightful dinner!

Went here for breakfast of New Years Day. We've been for the breakfast buffet in the past and always enjoyed it, although the service has been a bit weak. This time it was horrendous all around. We got there around 11am on NY day with lots of overnite guests still coming down for brkfast so it wasnt late. When we... More

Sat at the bar and ordered off the Octagon dinner menu. I ordered their organic chicken and felt it was a good sized portion for the price. Of the 2 pieces of chicken, 1 was incredibly dry and neither piece really had much taste. There was so much gravy or some sort of sauce drizzled on the mashed potatoes it... More
