Dinner at S&P is an experience. All of the food is locally grown/caught and is farm to table or dock to table. We had the oysters and they were incredibly fresh. The clam chowder is delicious- creamy, yet light. The setting was appropriately rustic and the service outstanding. The price was a little steep but you get what you pay... More

Best restaurant I have been to in a long time, I go out a lot to eat and this was seriously good. Great for lunch, the earlier the better. Very nice ambiance with very good service.

This is a beautiful setting and a tourist spot. We tried it and were a bit disappointed in the food. The service was excellent, the views wonderful. If you are not able to get outdoor seating, ask for a table near a window. Unfortunately, I don't think we will return.

We are not tourists and live 1.5 miles from S&P. There was nothing outstanding about the menus selection as most seafood restaurants in the area do the same thing. That being said, there was an interesting Central American twist to at least half the items on the menu. We were greeted with a 45 minute to 1 hour wait which... More

My husband and I are locals and our friends were visiting and wanted a place on the water that served seafood. S&P has a beautiful ambiance so we chose there. Service was great and the food tasted good however, the portions are small especially for the expensive prices. But you are paying for the location and like many of Mystic... More

We ate at S & P on 7/18 for a late lunch. We were greeted by friendly and courteous staff and then seated on the beautiful, outside patio. We ordered lobster bisque, gazpacho, quesadilla and lobster rolls (we were in New England right?). The food came in a timely matter but lacked flavor. The lobster bisque was very thick, almost...

Went to dinner with my adult niece. Was a lovely restaurant with a great atmosphere. We had a table by the window with a lovely view of the water. Service was great, the Bordeaux was excellent. Was a very special event.

My family ate dinner here on July 4. The service was very good and the views were amazing. The food was good but not great. I'm not sure I would go back if I visited Mystic again.
