My biggest pet peeve when dining out is having to wait – to be acknowledged when I enter a restaurant, to be handed a menu and offered a drink, or for a delayed meal. So, upon entering The Mystic Boathouse for the first time, things didn’t bode well as my husband and I stood in the entryway for about 5... More

The staff is always welcoming. Love to stop by after a day in Mystic. Don't feel rushed and food is good and reasonably priced. Love their chowder.

Being an abnormally warm day in November, we decided to bring our dog with us to the Boathouse as we usually do. When we got there, we noticed that the patio area wasn't set up but the tables/chairs were still out there. Seeing this, we asked if we could be sat outside with our dog, and the woman at the...

The Boathouse is not a fancy place, but that is one of its charms. It is friendly and conveniently located, with plenty of parking, and the menu features comfortable favorites. While staying at the nearby Hilton on business, my husband and I visited around 6:30 on a rainy November night, and we had the dining room all to ourselves. The... More

The restaurant high on a hill above the Mystic shopping center and I 95 is just perfect for an early dinner, but do NOT get there too late-- for a great happy hour!! The drinks are great and the fish is fresh and perfectly cooked. We had raw oysters as well and they were also perfect, very unassuming, nice people,... More

Very convenient location! I stayed at the Holiday Inn and walked across the adjoining parking lot to this restaurant. I visited in the off season during the week and it seemed to me that most of the patrons were locals (they seemed to know each other and staff) this says something about a place to me. The staff was attentive,... More

We had an early dinner here Thursday night. Crispy warm rolls and butter to begin. Quick service. I had a grilled romaine salad that would have been to die for, but the grape tomatoes were sparce. Really needed more tomatoes, but still good. Then good salmon with pecans with veggies and Uncle Benish rice. It was good. He had the... More

Three of us ordered the Bomster Scallops, the fourth ordered the broiled cod. We loved both dishes, and the clam chowder was one of the best restaurant chowders we've had. I had the fruit pie, and loved it. Apples, blueberries, rhubarb with a crumble topping, it was perfect. It was noisier than we would usually enjoy, but between the friendly... More

Stopped for lunch, we were in Mystic nearby. There were only a few diners in the dining room so we were seated right away, although the lounge seemed pretty busy, My wife and I split a hummus platter for an appetizer, it was good, we wished there were more pita bread in relationship to the hummus though. My wife ordered... More
