Fresh and delicious seafood, annoying seagulls

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

This is the best damn clam shack Ive ever been to in my life. I have no idea what their food costs to purchase because it is too good for me to care. My favorite thing to do is to get friend clam strips and a hot lobster roll with no lettuce and sit and watch the sail boats go... More

While up in the northeastern states, I was looking for some good lobster rolls. Color me surprised when, of all the Maine-style lobster I had, my second-favorite one came from Connecticut. The snack bar is an unassuming joint right off the main road, next to an ice-cream bar. Seating is outdoors only, but it offers a nice view of the... More

Casual. We enjoy eating at their outdoor tables by the river - this is our second time here. I had a delicious fried fish sandwich, my friend had a non-menu lobster roll with cheese, but done as a grilled cheese sandwich. She loved it and we appreciated their willingness to step outside the box to please a customer. We hope... More
