Service was ridiculous!!! Not kid friendly. I had the Alaskan crab legs. I have no idea how you can screw up cooking them, but they were awful. Only thing they have going for them is the view. Wow!!! Zeroooooo.

Ate there twice, once for lunch and then dinner. Lunch was very good and service adequate. Dinner was not so well done. Despite having reserved a month ahead it took nearly forty minutes to get seated and the hostess was extremely incompetent. The wait staff was ok. The food was average.

Been going here for quite a while and don't like the changes. Atmosphere and views still great but food is weird. Who wants yucca fries with a lobster roll? And ceviche in Mystic? We enjoyed our lunch at Abbott's far more. Maybe they are trying to be different but it didn't work for us!

Found this place when driving from NYC to Provincetown, Needing some lunch this place really hit the spot. Wonderful little town, to me (from the UK) its like how I would want small town USA to be... Great spot by the water, overlooking the bridge and the estuary. Food was excellent, waiting staff very attentive and enthusiastic (bit too enthusiastic!)... More

Just had a wonderful lunch at S & P Oyster Co. I had the portabella mushroom sandwich with kale chips, my daughter had the grilled chicken with broccoli and mashed potatoes from the children's menu and my husband had the fried oysters. We enjoyed each meal very much. We sat outside and had a beautiful view of the water and... More

We always go to S&P Oyster Company when we visit Mystic, CT. All of the tables face the waterfront, food choices are excellent! We had a table in a corner that felt like we were by ourselves. The seafood dishes were outstanding. Drinks were great too. Our server had a ton of energy, the way he explained the special items... More

We had to wait about 10 minutes for our table. It was a Monday for lunch, The sign of a great restaurant is that it is crowded--for lunch--on a Monday. We didn't mind the wait. We were seated upstairs. We had a great table by the window so we could see people kayaking on the Mystic River. I had already... More
