Excellent food and service. Thanks to our waiters Jeff and David for suggesting the fried oysters. A little bit of a wait less than 20 minutes. We sat at the bar upstairs until our table was ready. For a place that was crowded inside and out it did not feel like it. View was absolutely beautiful... read more

We just spent 5 days on vacation in the Mystic area and decided to try this restaurant since it was highly recommended to us by a family member. Not only did we like it, we actually went back for dinner a second night during our stay so that we could try more of the menu offerings. We were very impressed... More

I had a simple salad with wood grilled chicken that was very good. My husband had a seafood ambrosia dish that he enjoyed very much. I would recommend calling ahead as they get busy. The have a bar upstairs and the staff was great.

Waiting time to be seated was resonable, even if the restaurant was very busy. The service was very profesional and drinks and food arrived relativly fast considering the many guests. The menú is varied and with a suitable number of dishes to choose from. All our choises of food were very tasty. We´ve been to S&P before, and will return... More

We have frequented S & P Oyster many times. My parents go back and forth between Connecticut and Rhode Island and constantly meet friends for dinner here. While the food is excellent, the way they treat their customers is disgusting. We called a couple weeks in advance for a reservation for 3 for our anniversary. When we got to the... More

Loved the ambience. The Mystic River is right at your fingertips, the outside seating is quite comfortable in May even. Clam chowder wasn't the best ever, which I was hoping for, but it was very good. My husband had a wedge salad which was literally like a 1/3 of a chunk of iceberg lettuce with some blue cheese crumbles and... More

I have been to several good seafood restaurants throughout the world, and this is among a handful of great ones. It is also in my opinion heads above the other "Oyster" restaurant in Mystic. My four friends and I ordered a variety of dishes, including Wasabi Tuna, Scallops on homemade tagliatelle, and a great salad with shrimp. While all received... More

If being very busy is a sign of good food and great atmosphere, then this is the place. I enjoyed a delicious entree of tuna over black rice and bok choy. The glass of Mystic Pale Ale helped everything taste even better. The service was friendly and timely. Overall good place to eat.
