I came here with my mom and my toddler. It was close to our hotel and had a big menu. We were seated right away and our server was great. I had a craving for clam chowder, so that was my starter. Not the best chowder I've had, but not terrible. I had the crab cake sandwich for dinner. I... More

This restaurant is located near the old village and aquarium so it was a good choice for me During my stay. The concierge at our hotel also recommended and gave us a coupon. I ordered a drink and it was very strong. Waitstaff was friendly and burger was pretty good. My kids ate pasta with butter so it's hard to... More

The temperature wasn't cool enough inside when we arrived to eat around 6:30 PM. The hostess took us to a small table right were everyone entering would walk by. After requesting a booth, we were seated in the one right beside where the wait staff entered in and out of the kitchen. It took a while to get waited on... More

Not being from New England maybe I don't understand their menus. To start with I ordered a beer and a shrimp cocktail (that was priced at $2.50) the waitress ask me how many I wanted, as they only contain one shrimp each. They also had a flyer with daily specials, I order the scallops and was then told the daily... More

We stopped here for dinner on the evening of July 1st. Hard working staff. Everyone made sure that you were satisfied. Food was very good. I had panko-crusted chicken with mashed potatoes. Delish. Hubby had chicken Parm and was happy. Warm rolls, good drinks and nice desserts. Key lime pie was very good. Nice nautical decor that fits the area.... More

Hit or miss service here. The waitress out front was rude to us, telling us we couldn't sit down on the oustude patio while we waited 20 minutes for a table inside because she had a private party coming and she needed to sweep. I understand her predicament, but she was not nice about it at all. She seemed disgusted... More

My boyfriend and I went here one night on our trip to Mystic. Our waitress was great; very cheerful, friendly and helpful. I ordered the clam chowder and it was amazing! My boyfriend got the soup of the day which was broccoli cheddar, he wasn't a big fan of it. For our dinner I got a burger which was good,... More
