While staying in Mystic, figured might as well eat Seafood. We chose the Mystic Boathouse. It reminded me of a diner that serves seafood. The food was good, not great. The ambienence was so so. It seemed a bit run down and the aroma of the restaurant could have been better. Next time I will try a differenct seafood restaurant.... More

The night I was there in the bar was live music and it was great . Food and atmosphere matched and the service was good. I have eaten here twice now and as a traveler they have welcomed me and made me feel comfortable . Not a bad item to speak .I will be going back again

I was catching an early movie so I stopped in solo for a bite to eat. I sat at the bar and ordered a glass of wine and an order of calamari. It was delivered in the blink of an eye! It was good, not the best I've had mostly due to the marinara sauce which was heavy on the... More

Casual seafood and pub fare in a pleasant atmosphere. The prices are very attractive and the clams casino a must to try. This place is popular with the locals. Visitors who find it are the lucky ones.

We actually found a bar that is open after 10 pm on a Saturday night. Living in NJ and frequenting NY; I am unaccustomed to bars closing by 9 pm which is the culture of the Mystic, CT area. We were searching for a place to have a few drinks and saw a couple of cars in the parking lot.... More

First time visit to the Boathouse, and we were all happy with our dining experience. I treated my two daughters and 2 grand-daughters to a " girls only " sleepover in Mystic...and they treated me to a delicious meal at this restaurant. We all ordered some type of burger (which was very big!) except my youngest grand-daughter who ordered a... More

We had lunch here as a family of four. We ordered two salads (one with chicken, one with steak tips) and two kids' cheeseburgers. The bill came to $55 - whoa! Positives: friendly waitstaff, casual atmosphere, good variety of options for kids Negatives: raspberry vinaigrette salad dressing lacked any flavor - I actually had to ask my husband if he... More

We are in the process of moving from CT to NC. While spending a few days in a motel prior to actually leaving the area, we happened to dine at the Boathouse. It was a very pleasant experience. We had the hummus plate, soup of the day, crab-cakes and fried oysters. All items were well prepared, plated and served. The... More

I had a crabcake sandwich, and it was delicious. My husband had the scallop-stuffed cod and loved it, although there was too much for him. Highly recommended!

We went here with friends for lunch prior to a wedding. The salads are good and not drowning in salad dressing. The lobster roll was well received as was the chicken wrap. We didn't have the broth based soup but our friends did they really enjoyed it. The prices were average - $7 for the salad and another $5 for... More
