Great lobster rolls and view.

We stopped to get a couple sandwiches to go while traveling north on 95. Ended up getting lobster rolls which were delicious and eating them there because the view of all the boats was too nice to rush away from.

Everytime we take the ferry to Connecticut we take the Mystic exit to go to this snack bar. The seafood is so fresh and cooked to order. The lobster rolls are super as well as the clam strips. When we head back to the ferry we stop there before we catch the ferry They toast the rolls, yummy. It is... More

Drove pass thinking is was going to be expensive. Went back and so glad we did. Well worth a visit. The set up (tables etc) is quite basic BUT the food is amazing. Excellent view over the water. The bill was $51 for four meals including drinks (amazing value). Limited parking.

Saw so many great reviews so checked this place out for lunch. 2 kids and 1 adult and our bill was $50! Yikes! So here's the scoop: the bacon cheeseburger was amazing, the fried clams were soggy and mediocre. They were out of clam chowder (waah. 3 people on line after me also asked for it - guessing that's why... More

The view is nice. We ordered fried clams and calamari. The breading was ok, the food was cooked right. Nothing great. The prices are fair for fast food seafood. The view of the harbor is nice, as is eating outdoors next to it.

We stopped here tonight (8/20/15) for a quick dinner after reading good reviews on here. I really wish we hadn't. We got cheese fries, fried shrimp dinner, whole Clam side order, and mozzarella sticks appetizers, plus 2 iced teas. Bill was $52. The fries had cheap, nasty movie theater nacho cheese on top, tou can actually taste how artificial it... More

I loved the food, the view and the music. Great place to stop when heading up 95. The Lobster Rolls were really great and they offered many inviting sea food selections and lovely onion rings.

I found this the first night I spent in Mystic and pulled in for dinner. The fish was fresh, the fries very good and the slaw was excellent. Did I like it: I guess I must have as I went back for dinner again the next night!

Best lobster rolls. It was great sitting outside looking out at the river. A real local food shack and worth the visit.

Delicious! I ordered the lobster roll - just the perfect amount of mayo and a handful of lettuce. Lots of lobster meat. Yum! My husband ordered the fried seafood platter, which was equally delicious. Great view of the harbor, as well. Then, you can walk over for a scoop of ice cream after dinner!
