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

We ate there Halloween night. Soups Minstrone and a du jour: Roasted eggplant and tomato, both terrific and served HOT. Greatly appreciated on a chilly night. Served with good crusty bread and a good roasted garlic oil. yum. Our entrees, shrimp scampi super good, and lobster ravioli good. Good coffee. We'll be back again.

What a nice meal we had at Anthony J's on a Sunday evening in late September. It was still warm enough for the windows to be open, and our table in the little room to the left of the entrance caught the breeze. The lights were dim, and not a TV in sight! Amen and halleluiah! Menus appeared and the... More

Every Summer, we spend a fair amount of weekends in Watch Hill, R.I. and generally stay at hotels in Mystic. The question of "where to go for dinner tonight" is never difficult for us. We almost always have a dinner each weekend at "A.J's. Their new, outside patio is just a perfect, romantic setting for enjoying a really delicious, romantic... More

We've been going for years and the quality never varies from great. Italian dishes, some creative, some classic, with daily specials. Try the hot rocks where dinner cooks on your table before your eyes.
