I wrote a review this winter that stated the Cove Fish Market was for sale, but wait! There is a lot of activity going on in the yard at Cove. Rebuilding, painting, and the for sale sign is gone. We're hopeful it will open again. Check it out when you're in Mystic to see what's coming for the summer of... More

Sadly this place was not open for the 2013 season. The picnic tables were put out and the tarps put on the covered area in Spring 2013, but the lights were never on and the doors locked.

Cove Fish Market has a lot of quality competition that has a better value for the buck. Suggest owner get more involved in improving quality of food thus improving value.

We were here on 10/9/12 touring the towns of Mystic and Stonington. I had read the reviews of the seafood restaurants and we decided to try the Cove to have a Hot Lobster Roll. We enjoyed the abundant lobster served on the toasted bread for $20, but we had to have the local fare!

Food just not that great. The place looks very old needs a paint job and does not smell that great either. Did not feel good about eating there.

We have been coming to the Cove for a few years, and we've always enjoyed a dinner, but this last trip was most likely our last. We arrived at closing time (7:30 PM) and were greeted by an angry server followed by angry mosquitos. We were not permitted to eat inside because they were trying to close for the night.... More

This restaurant has so much potential because of it's location, but we were definitely disappointed. The food was ok, but the portions were so small for the price. Could have had a sit-down meal at a much better restaurant in Mystic or Stonington for the price. We will never go there again.

I have eaten at Cove Fish Market many times over the years and always had a wonderful meal. When We went this July at 7 PM the parking lot was almost empty. Everything we ordered was poor. The frying was greasy. The fish overcooked and tasteless and fries soggy. Compared to the prices in the coastal Rhode Island "clam shacks"... More
