We booked ahead but still had a bit of a wait for our table. We were a group of 8. Food was very good, well presented, I'm not sure it was as relaxed as I would have liked or the food as good as the prices required. But overall an enjoyable and good experience Lovely Location right on the river,... More

My fiancé and I came here for dinner our last night of vacation...and boy was it worth it! The wait wasn't too long and all of the hostess' were so sweet. Great atmosphere and I am glad we ate inside because it was a great setting along the river. I got the Faroe salmon on top of the warm orzo... More

We didn't eat here because we didn't have reservations and they are snobby to you if you don't make reservations. There were plenty of open tables but of course those were probably for the reservations (which may or may not actually show up unlike us standing in front of them) I have never really understood the point of reservations. Anyway,... More

This is more a meal review than a restaurant review. After all, this place has all the kudos it needs, so what can I add to that? It IS right by the Bascule drawbridge, so "you can't miss it". Great service, natch. So, on to my dish. I had pan seared scallops with pasta. Che bella! The scallops were among... More

This was our second trip to Mystic and our second trip to this restaurant. The location can't be beat - great scenery. The menu, food and price is perfect - fresh seafood at fair prices. The indoor dining is fairly upscale and the outdoor patio provides a classy but casual alternative. Great for couples or families with (well behaved) kids.

While giving my wife a tour of Southeastern Ct we took advantage of a beautiful late summer day to stop at this restaurant. Having not made reservations we were pleasantly surprised when we were informed by the hostess that they did have a few "cocktail" tables outside. We were seated within 5 minutes and approached by a server within two... More

Last weekend was our first time in Mystic, CT and we really had no idea where to go for dinner on Saturday night. I did a lot of research and came up with the S&P Oyster Company, and am really glad I found it. The food is great. There's a mix of seafood, meat and poultry dishes so there's something... More

My wife and I dined here and absolutely loved it. Our table was on the outdoor patio and had a view of the river and bridge. The service was quick but we didn't feel rushed. We tries the home made sangria (red) which was good. The spicy chicken and blue corn appetizer was one of the best ever! We each... More
