From the food to the service our experience was quite pleasurable. Our server Lisa was phenomenal. Helpful, pleasant, & spot on. The food was deliciously prepared with perfect sized portions. The strip steak was the best steak my boyfriend has ever had. Definitely worth a trip. Oh and it doesn't hurt the eyes to view the mystic river and picturesque... More

Third visit due to great location. Clean,friendly staff,,great views but disappointing food. Lobster bisque as thick as cement with just about the same flavor. Insipid shrimp(they forgot the Garlic)with half cooked veggies.we had similar experience on all three occasions. I really don't Understand how anyone can rave about this place.Oh,by the way it's terribly expensive.

The restaurant and views were nice but unfortunately we did not have a good food experience. I felt it was the usual tourist style restaurant. The portions were small and the food was pricey. This was not fine dining but was presented as such. We ordered the oyster tacos (special of the day) and they were so tiny and arrived... More

One my one visit here, my wife and I both thought that our dishes were well-designed and excellently prepared. I had grilled tuna, she had crab cakes (which I got a taste of), and it's hard to imagine these dishes being any more delicious. The serving size was sufficient for us, but those with a big appetite might consider them... More

Very well prepared food offered with good service. No other place in Mystic serves food as novel and good as this one. The view of the Mystic River is great - passing boats like the Sabino and Argia in the summer and across the river 19th Century buildings seen all year long. Also varied waterfowl in the river swimming.

What a lovely place to enjoy a delicious lunch. The decor is simple and elegant with a beautiful water view. The food was delicious. We loved the fresh shrimp cocktail, which were plump and tasty. The lobster bisque could only have been improved if it was slightly thinner and less salty. There was one little chunk of lobster meat on... More

One of the few quality restaurants open in the Mystic area for a Sunday lunch all year long. We have met there with family from Boston and New York areas as it is about halfway. They are very accommodating and the the windows views (of which they have a lot) are very pretty. The food is good and they have... More

The food at S&P is consistently superb. We had the seafood tower as an appetizer and it did not disappoint. The specials were excellent, as were the regular menu items. Our server was exceptional (Kristen) and was great with our son. The drinks are pleasantly on the strong side. You'll expect to spend more than at your average restaurant in... More
