Actually a good place for a meal

There is an area with tables and chairs for people who by a meal to dine in the store. The food is very good and actually better than the restaurants in Mystic Village. Usually a very good selection. You buy the items you want and pay for what you select. I have seen many local people we know when... read more

This restaurant is located in McQuade's Supermarket in the Mystic Village, Local residents, retirees, and employees of the Aquarium and Seaport all eat here. Great selection of hot and cold meals. Pizza bar, seafood, saladbar, soups, fried chicken, etc. An economical and pleasant option that has enough options to please everone. They even have outdoor seating on the patio.

Earlier this week ABC evening news reported a Salmonella recall on Barber Chicken Products. I checked the code on the packages in my freezer and found that they were part of the recall. Two days later I was in McQuades and noticed that they still had a display case full of the recalled products. I sought out the manager and... More

Recalls of any kind are treated with priority at McQuade's Marketplace. I explained that we as a food company are notified directly from our suppliers of any recall of products immediately. McQuade's Marketplace did not have any of the recalled products in our store. I was notified from our supplier prior to our conversation, however I went to the Barber... More

This is a wonderful little grocery store. Has all the basics, but has a full aisle of healthy and gluten free food; more than you'd ever fine at Walmart. Also their deli, bakery, fish, sushi, premade food items are awesome! You'll find everything you need here, and more. Small store, but really packs it all in and gives you a... More

We do get that false impression of being expensive because we do strive to offer higher quality items. We have a huge variety of specialty items not found elsewhere and the quality of our perishable departments outshines any market in our area. Quality without Compromise are the words we stand behind. Thanks for taking the time to write a great... More

Fantastic selection of anything you could want. Prices are a bit high but so are the restaurants in the area. Food is fresh and I could find a lot of gluten free items to chose from. If I lived here I would be here often to spend my paycheck on great food!

Hamburger with swiss and mushrooms was Today's Special Sandwich in The Galley. Well, the hamburger was evident and pretty good, but there was not a hint of swiss or mushrooms(which is why I ordered the item.) I questioned the cook and he showed me a pre-packaged slab of hamburgers and said that the swiss and mushrooms were tiny bits on... More

Sorry for the disappointing experience at The Galley. The burger that was on special is made exactly as you described, the cheese and mushrooms are hand mixed into the patty. They are usually well received and enjoyable, I cook them at home all the time. However when you imagine a mushroom Swiss burger I can see your point that you... More

May 29, 2015 - At Mystic, CT, we stayed at a Hampton Inn and Suites close to the Mystic Aquarium and not far from McQuade's Marketplace.

This grocery store is hard to find, but it is worth the effort. If you are staying in a hotel and want to cut your meal cost buy the premade meals here. They also have great specialty foods and produce!
