My wife and I both ordered clam chowder and we split an order of fried artichokes. We both thought the chowder was fabulous and I liked the artichokes (my wife wasn't crazy about the aioli). My wife had the Tuscan salad with shrimp which she loved and I had the grilled romaine (with added salmon) which I thought was fantastic!... More

I was staying at a nearby hotel and was looking for a place to have dinner. Walking up Coogan Boulevard from the Hilton, I found the Mystic Boathouse across the street from the Olde Mistick Village. It was a late Sunday afternoon and the place was quiet. I sat at the bar and ordered mussels ($10) and the grilled Romaine... More

For a tourist spot, the restaurant has kept the prices in check and the food and service was very good. Bar was hopping with some live Irish music. Fun place to go for dinner or drinks.

Food is very good here. Not to pricey for dinner. Bread is skimpy and to crunchy. Fast service and clean.

After quite an eventful morning and early afternoon my party of 4 decided to wet our whistles and take in a snack. When we have been in the area previously we've had dinner here and have found it suited our taste buds along with our wallets. Janet, who also tended the bar served us and was very helpful, courteous and... More

Stayed at the holiday inn express and walked across the parking lot. The food was good and the staff friendly. The summer sangria was to lemony and couldn't really drink anything with to much pulp spinning around. I'd go back and visit again. Just ask to sit furthest from the bar as it gets noisy and you can't hear well.

After reading the reviews about the unfriendly staff, we were a little hesitant about trying this restaurant. I must tell you, though, that most of the people we met there were very friendly and helpful. Our waitress was very outgoing and seemed to genuinely like her job. I could see some of the other waitresses who did not seem to... More
