McQuade's marketplace is a full service grocery store in Mystic, CT. We have a huge salad bar, soup bar, grill, deli, and cafeteria style 80 seat restaurant. There is a gas fireplace, butcher block tables, flowers in vases on each table, and interesting views over to the aquarium. We have a large selection of high quality affordable food choices from burgers, pizza and fish and chips to Prime rib and Duck a l'Orange. On Wednesday nights there is an all you can eat pasta buffet and Sundays are all you can eat breakfast buffet. High quality, low prices and great service in a clean inviting dining area. Have a deli sandwich made fresh from our selection of specialty sandwiches or paninis or create your own.

I stopped in for the lobster roll, but they either don't offer it anymore or they were sold out (7:00 PM). I opted for the fried clams (with bellies) instead, $10.95 and, surprisingly, they came with some great fries, cole slaw, lemon and tarter sauce. You can't beat the price! Not as good as the Lobster Hut in Plymouth, MA... More

The lobster rolls are excellent. However they are seasonal, we normally run them from Spring till Fall and as a daily special on occasion. I am happy you were able to find something on the menu to your liking and appreciate your stopping in. Thanks again and have a great day. Ed Laplante More

Good take out. Great selection. We tried various take out items while staying in Mystic. Most are microwave freindly for an in room supper alternative to the pricey area restaurant fare. It's also a full sized supermarket with all the regular stuff. Very pleasant and clean. Wish it wasn't 200+ miles from home! We'd be here much more often!

Wow!!! The food at this place is scrumptious. We went for dinner and all of the food is delectible. I had coconut shrimp dinner, my daughter had pizza with wings, friend had an Apple bourbon pork dinner, and her son had chicken fingers with fries. It was very inexpensive and so good. Dessert was out of this world. A big... More

We happened upon McQuade's Marketplace in Westerly on the way to the beach. I thought I had read a review in Trip Advisor about the takeout meals here, and our GPS route didn't take us by one of our usual stops, so we stopped here. They were out of the pre-made deli sandwiches, but we had them made at the... More

A good grocery store but the hidden gem is the prepared food. McQuade's actually makes a good lunch spot for those traveling around the aquarium area!

We were at a local bar in Mystic enjoying a Guinness, and we asked the bartender where we could find clams that were reasonably priced. He told us to try the dining area at McQuade's. And so we did!! When we arrived, we noticed the local firemen eating there, so that was a good sign. We both ordered the fried... More

We found this an ideal place for breakfast. Good choice freshly made to order and you will not believe the prices, what excellent value. Staff friendly and helpful, why go anywhere else. It is a little tricky to find, go past the Mystic Hilton and then just follow the road around, ignore the first sign you see. Its a dead... More

You will find everything you need plus more and never get tired of shopping at McQuade's. They have great deserts and the chicken is great. You can sit and eat inside, outside or take out. Most everything is reasonably priced and they're opened until 10:00pm.
