My wife and I stopped here for a quick lunch on a summer day. The breeze was beautiful and the food is yummy. The burgers and sea food are fresh and delicious and the fries are even better than they used to be. Worth the stop!!

Best part is the seafood shack atmosphere and the view. Side order of scallops $17.49 was 8 scallops that were less than ordinary. Clam chowder needed salt, warmth and detectable clams. Clam roll was fried clams on bread for $8.99. We expected more with the sea looking right at you.

Great Food! I enjoyed a lobster roll for 14.95! It was tasty! On a separate day I had fried clams and French fries. The clams and fries were good and reasonably priced. The view from the picnic tables was fabulous! I would definitely go back!

I am recommending the shrimp and calamari. Clam strips are not as good as we would like them to be. A good place to go for a meal before or after visiting the Mystic Seaport.

This is a great place for excellent New England seafood in a beautiful outdoor setting along the river. We had fried clam strips and clam chowder that would rival that served in much more expensive restaurants. Will definitely return here any time we're in the area.

Had flounder, full bellies clams and scallops. All were under seasoned and just ok. Too expensive! Love that it was outside. But no real bathroom :( only 1 port-a-potty and that sucks when you have a young one!

We come here whenever we're in Mystic, and to date haven't had a bad meal. As long as you set your expectations (fresh seafood from basically a shack that you eat at a picnic table with a nice view) you will not be disappointed. We had lobster rolls and chowder: the lobster roll was packed with fresh lobster meat in... More

A small sea food shack serving good and fresh basic sea food dishes. You eat your "fish & chips" out doors, a roof protects you of it rains, and the atmosphere is really relaxed and friendly. Well worth a visit!
