Our favorite place to dine in Mystic.

We live within walking distance and so are frequent guests. Food and service are great. It was the first place we ate after moving to Mystic and were immediate fans. The Oysters Rockefeller are terrific! So is the Bouillabaisse.

I had lunch here with family today. They have a beautiful view, great atmosphere and very friendly/attentive staff. They have a gluten-free menu with plenty of options, though (obviously) most were of the seafood variety. I was ready to stifle my jealousy as I watched my family eat the fresh bread and oil...until they delivered a warm, unbelievably delicious gluten-free... More

This was our third time eating at this restaurant. We love the food, the service and being on the water. It can be a little noisy, however it is positive and animated. People are just enjoying being there.

What a wonderful place! Great food, attentive and professional wait staff, lovely water views, spacious seating, pleasant music. Had a delicious Pear-tini to start. Excellent appetizers, pleasantly surprised by the generous portions. Seared Ahi was perfectly flavored, the slices artistically arranged on a bed of seaweed salad and enoki mushrooms. Fried Oysters over creamy horseradish sauce was enough for a... More

The restaurant is where you want to eat. It is located right on he water next to the draw bridge. There is outdoor seating and large windows facing the water. The food was great! The things that stood out to me as being amazing were the bread and oil & balsamic served before we ate, the prosciutto that wrapped my... More

We had dinner here with our two kids. We called ahead and while they don't take reservations per se, they have a preferred seating arrangement. We arrived on time and were told it would be a 10-15 further wait and to sit on the outdoor deck, but after about 5 minutes they had a table for us. Thank goodness, because... More

My husband and I took a week-end trip to Newport, Rhode Island with some dear friends. On our way back to the cross island ferry in New London, we decided to stop off in Mystic for a bit of lunch. The four of us had had such an amazing time in Newport, we were trying to keep the magic going... More
