Food is uniformly excellent, and in the pub at lunch time, prices are reasonable for generous portions of salads,sandwiches, other dishes that vary. Emphasis is on fresh-grown, locally-grown vegetables and meats. Many ingredients are organic, and the meat is antibiotic and hormone free. Desserts are wicked and delicious.

Great place for a quick bite in the pub with the whole family or a really nice evening out upstairs. Fun for late night too - great live music

I'm a little uneasy writing this review as I really, really, REALLY like the Daniel Packer. And if I tell you all about it, it's going to get harder to get a table there. But, they do a great plate & service is top notch. So I'm giving them the kudos they deserve. The dining room (upstairs) is quiet and... More

My husband and I sent part of our honeymoon in Mystic and we found this restaurant on a brochure. We wanted to try some authentic New England flavors. The service was great, the food was incredible, and I refuse to eat clam chowder any where unless it's at the DPI!! :) The ambiance is very romantic. It's a great place... More

We were taking our daughter out for dinner for her birthday and she suggested the DPI. We had never been and weren't sure what to expect as we were also bringing our 7 year old granddaughter with us. We were promptly seated in the main room and were quickly waited on by the staff. Our waitress was excellent and handled... More

I've been going to the DPI on and off for many years, and recently went for an special occasion lunch with my wife. We had a really nice meal, the lemon pepper chicken there is one of my favorite dishes anywhere, waitress was wonderful. It's a consistently great place.

A most atmospheric restaurant, both the upstairs dining room and the down stairs pub. We've been here many, many times and always come away having had an excellent dining experience. Their food is great and service is appropriate in either venue. Their Lemon Chicken is Excellent, and one of their signature dishes.

We were a party of 8 (4 siblings and spouses) and depended upon Tripadvisor reviews to select a restaurant in the area as we were unfamiliar with this end of the state. The reviews were spot on! It was fabulous. To start with, when I called for reservations I spoke with Allie and revealed I wanted to do a surprise... More

Four of us for a early Sunday dinner. Bread at the table with a head of roasted garlic to spread, excellent. No appetizers but did the soups: two Captain Packer’s New England Clam Chowder; two Packer Inne Baked Onion Soup. A different entree for ea.: The Veal Homard, the Blackjack Sirloin, the Lemon Peppered Chicken & Scallops Nantucket. Since it... More

My boyfriend and I ate in the Pub. We had a wait for our table but enjoyed the special sangria from the bar while we waited. We both loved our appetizers--the tenderloin bruschetta was absolutely delicious and my boyfriend very much liked the stuffed artichoke hearts. The grilled crab and cheese was very disappointing and salty which was sad after... More
