We were staying at the Marriot for our anniversary and decided to eat at the Octagon instead of driving to Mystic for dinner. Everything was spot on. Our server Tom was exceptional as was the whole staff. The onion soup and mussels were fantastic and more. The steak was cooked just perfect and the Salmon was too. Thank you for... More

OK, it is better than most but also the same room that all the meals are served in. The breakfast bar takes up a large portion of the room and isn't used for most of the day. Food was good, the Dragon Chowder was a mix of fish, skate and alligator. They swear the gator was fresh...

Back on top. That’s the only way to describe a decade plus favorite restaurant in the Groton/Mystic area. Octagon was a favorite some 12 years ago. Somewhere along the way, they lost their way. A visit a few years back left me saddened by the lack luster evening spent. And very disappointed in our meal. August 2014 however is a... More

The Octagon is a must if your're looking for a quality steak in the Groton/Mystic area. The menu has much more to offer like the Tuna Street Tacos. One of my favorites. The Dragon chowder or the Sirloin chili are great starters. The Octagon is a great place to bring the whole family to dine with the variety of selections... More

We eat at the Octagon for special occasions, which amounts to 2 - 3 times a year. Friday we went for no special occasion, just the desire for an excellent meal. We were not disappointed. I have fallen in love with the rack of lamb, and once again, it was excellently prepared. My husband had the bison skirt steak, which... More

This restaurant has very intriguing cuisine, and the flavor pairings are slightly "edgy." I tried the Dragon chowder, which was definitely not the usual New England clam chowder. It was more like a lobster bisque with cajun/creole spices, and very tasty. For the entree, I tried the bison steak with noodles made from corn. The bison was excellently prepared, and... More
