We’ve been there for a late lunch with our 2 kids and had oysters & champagne to start, followed with different seafood as main dishes. Although the kids are sometimes a bit difficult, there was enough on the menu to make them happy too. Staff was very friendly and helpful. In summary, the oysters were excellent, the seafood dishes very... More

stopped for lunch - was seated for over 2 hours. Oysters were fresh, cold and enjoyable. View was magnificent and couldn't have been any better. Lunch menu was somewhat limited and pricey. Overall not a bad lunch stop.

It was a quiet evening in early October and I wanted a good atmosphere....what I got was a great atmosphere and a great meal! Traveling alone for business, I generally eat at the bar with other road warriors, but there was hardly anyone at the bar. The restaurant had plenty of patrons, but it was a slow night. I would...

Eating at S & P Oyster Co. was a great experience, as many of the other reviewers have stated. It has a good menu and specials each evening. The meals were enjoyed by all the dinners in our group. I had the seafood ambrosia and it was terrific and a wine special. The atmosphere is a seaside restaurant and the... More

A platter of different oysters was really delicious. In Europe were are used to large oysters, but I particularly liked the small local oysters. Also the red snapper was cooked very well. The crême brulée was nearly perfect. Not cheap, but very good food and service in a cozy atmosphere and a super location.

This is an excellent seafood restaurant adjacent to the bridge and water. In warm weather you can dine outside or inside. The seafood is fresh and top quality, and so is the service. Unlike a few other Oyster House restaurants in the area, this one has a much more varied and extensive menu. The only drawbacks are having to wait... More

We were visiting Mystic for a couple of days and this restaurant was recommended to us. We had their clam chowder which was absolutely fantastic. The staff were great. We sat upstairs overlooking the estuary. A great evening!

The outside location by the drawbridge, the service and the food were all wonderful. The fried oyster tacos were unique and delicious. We met friends we had not seen in a long time, so we had a lot to talk about. It was a perfect, unhurried atmosphere in which to visit.
