Great Dinner on a cold snowy night

Supposed to go farther afield but the weather was not good. Hadn't been her in a long time. Arrived early (around 5:15) and were seated immediately. Hostess and wait staff very attentive. Mostly Italian cuisine with other dishes as well. Their "hot rocks" cooking is interesting as they bring... read more

Came up for some shopping and stumbled across some great Italian. Extensive lunch menu with full list of daily specials. We sampled pesto swordfish, lobster and chicken panini's. Big portions mixed with wonderful flavors. Lunch out on a Monday can be hit or miss but they delivered. Will return for dinner.

A.J.s is always consistent. The service is friendly, warm, welcoming, responsive. We are generally remembered although we eat there perhaps only once a month. The menu is varied; daily board specials are intriguing, delicious, and offer all sorts of temptations and innovative combinations. The ambiance - where do you start?! We eat in the bar side which is comfortable, darkened,... More

For lunch or dinner, this place is a treat--good food, good service, nice atmosphere. The restaurant doesn't take reservations, but during the off-season it's easy to get a table at dinner or at lunch. The menu is varied with good fish and italian dishes. Locals seem to enjoy the bar, which can sometimes be a little noisy, but not overwhelming.... More

My husband and I came to Mystic for a long weekend. We were looking for a good restaurant not in Mystic village. Absolutely amazing. Calamari cooked to perfection and our entrees were just as good. Wait staff and bartender very friendly. Highly recommend and we'll be back again

This is a warm and welcoming place just one minute walking distance from the famous Mystic Bridge. We sat at the bar for a while and met friendly couples, then moved to a dinner table. Lighting and overall noise level are both low which is really nice for a couple out on date night. Service was enthusiastic and professional and... More
