Hostesses were very personable and helpful. Both dishes for the meal were some of the best we have ever had. Across from the Whaler's Inn , right on the Mystic River at the bridge. After a long day of travel it was quite, prompt, and delicious!

We had a special night out to celebrate various milestones. We love the atmosphere at S+P Oyster House. Except that somehow our reservation made 2 weeks in advance was unrecorded, we got a table by the water anyhow, since it was not busy. Our waitress, Lora, was delightfully pleasant, always checking on us and informing us of the status of... More

S & P Oyster Co. sits right by the bridge on the Mystic River, which provides entertainment in itself with its constant rising and falling. Get a table outside if the weather permits; the terrace is tiered down to the river and not much overlooked from the street. We arrived in the early evening on a Sunday in September, and... More

From the Oysters, Shrimp Cocktail, and Seafood Tacos everything is fresh and well prepared. I have visited several times in the room upstairs for private functions and with the large number of people each food item was hot and prepared perfectly. Although I have not dines downstairs I have friends who have and enjoy it thoroughly.

It was a great way to celebrate a milestone birthday. We made an early reservation and were seated promptly upon arrival at a window side table overlooking the river. A beautiful view of the boats and the town. This particular day there were Pirate boats for a town special event. The servers were attentive to all our needs and checked... More

Location is right on the river and depending on where you are seated you can watch the boats navigating by. Atmosphere is excellent; lighting is low, tables are set with linen, wait staff is top notch. Entrees are always excellent. You might spend a bit more than average, but is is worth it.

The staff were all helpful ad friendly and the service was outstanding in spite of their being quite busy. The food was excellent - tasty, well-prepared and attractively served. Will definitely go here again when visiting Mystic.
