I had the fried clam - whole belly - dinner. You know..Real Clams - Fries - Cole Slaw and a Diet. Hey - don't judge ! By the way if you order clam strips you're eating rubber bands and not real seafood ! Survey says - $22.27.. The view is pretty nice - the young lady behind the glass was... More

Service was very efficient. Outdoor seating by water, it was nice. The food was reasonably priced. Recommend the scallops and the burgers are amazing. If in the area again I would return.

Now that the weather has improved this is a nice spot for outdoor snack, lunch or dinner. Good seafood selection and standard hamburger/hot dog fare as well. The Sea View is next door to Twisters Ice Cream and offers a 10% discount if you take your Sea View receipt to the window.

This is a little, off the side of the main road, shack type place. It has outside seating only on picnic tables with umbrellas or underneath a canopy. The tables sit facing the beautiful Mystic Seaport... what a view!! The menu is concise with varieties of seafood offered. We had the Fish and Chips dinner, 3 medium pieces ($13.99) and... More

We (3 moms and 11 kids under 9) stopped here for dinner after spending a beautiful spring afternoon at Mystic Seaport for their Pirate Day. For a location, near two child friendly establishments (Mystic Aquarium and Mystic Seaport), this "shack's" owner is incredibly rude and has no manners. We were sitting on 2 tables and our kids were sitting eating... More

It's not officially spring until we've have fried scallops and chowder out on the picnic tables here! Lots of menu options, delicious seafood, and a great staff. Don't forget to go to Twister's next door for ice cream!

We always stop here when in mystic. We have been coming here for years and are always pleased. Its relaxed outside dining with great views of the waters of Mystic Seaport but don't let it fool you, it has just about the best fried clams we've had from Ct. to Maine. The food is always consistent. The price is competitive... More

We had heard about this place and followed up and it was worth it. We ordered a Cold Lobster Roll and a bowl of New England Chowder. The roll was overstuffed with lobster and the chowder was very good! It came to just over $20 each! We'll go back when we visit Mystic again. Outdoor seating only right on the... More
