Yummy fresh seafood

During our trip to Mystic, members of our group ate at the Snack Bar three times due to the delicious fresh seafood. Fried clams were amazing and they were a huge portion. Clam chowder was a favorite. You could tell it was the end of the season and the end of a busy long weekend as there were no... read more

I usually get my fried clam fix in Quincy or Plymouth, MA, but I also try to stop here either on the way to MA or on the way back to NJ. I grew up loving Ipswich Fried Clams and they are impossible to get in NW NJ, so it's a once a year fix for me. Last time I... More

We had the fresh cod sandwich which was a good size, moist, and flavorful. We were there on Columbus day which was the last day of the season. We also has soft serve ice cream with many options for flavorings to choose from. We sat by the little pond and enjoyed nice views of the foliage. We would highly recommend... More

We had been here a couple years ago and it was one of the best Lobster rolls I had ever had, so I made a point to stop back. It was still good but not quite the same. We had a great lunch overlooking the water still.

Located near Mystic Seaport right on the water, we expected the prices to be high and quality mediocre. Much to our surprise, the quality was high and the prices moderate.

Outstanding seafood here at a fair price. There is no indoor seating but on a nice day the picnic tables are perfect and right by the water. The lobster roll was special as was the clam chowder.

Our chowder and clam strips were quite good, and very reasonably priced. This is a fun place to sit by the water and dine. Lots of appealing menu items and very polite service.
