My husband and I are locals and our friends were visiting and wanted a place on the water that served seafood. S&P has a beautiful ambiance so we chose there. Service was great and the food tasted good however, the portions are small especially for the expensive prices. But you are paying for the location and like many of Mystic... More

We ate at S & P on 7/18 for a late lunch. We were greeted by friendly and courteous staff and then seated on the beautiful, outside patio. We ordered lobster bisque, gazpacho, quesadilla and lobster rolls (we were in New England right?). The food came in a timely matter but lacked flavor. The lobster bisque was very thick, almost...

Went to dinner with my adult niece. Was a lovely restaurant with a great atmosphere. We had a table by the window with a lovely view of the water. Service was great, the Bordeaux was excellent. Was a very special event.

My family ate dinner here on July 4. The service was very good and the views were amazing. The food was good but not great. I'm not sure I would go back if I visited Mystic again.

The restaurant is in a very scenic location. Our food server is one of the best I have had the pleasure of being served by. He took the lunch order for our 5 top by memory (No pad or pencil). True professional! The team service concept should be revisited. I prefer a single point of contact. The manager/owner/supervisor was AWOL.... More

This place is awesome. Great drink selection, martinis, wines, beer. Our favorite was an appetizer special scallop tostada. The side of free beans with our entree was amazing, and if the veggies on the side are rave-worthy, you know a place is good. Entrees are delicious. Seafood is fresh, some non-seafood options for those that prefer. Great desserts. Service was... More

We initially were not happy with the pert answers we got from the person we spoke to regarding a reservation. They do not take reservations but we did put our name on the waiting list. Our guests were coming in from different areas in ct and luckily they were late so we were not waiting too long. Once inside the... More

We ate here on our last night in Mystic and we saved the best for last. We ate outside with a view of the drawbridge and wonderful food. Service is not rushed, bordering on slow but it was a great meal and very relaxing.
