Outdoor snack bar with typical sandwiches, fries & seafood. Next door is their ice cream stand. What more could you want? How about table views of Mystic river & The Mystic Seaport. Good food & location.

The "Sea View" actually has a river view, but it's next to a cemetery, so it's quiet here at 6 pm in early June despite being on a busy road. (Left turns out of the parking lot can be tough, though.) The paved parking lot is small. There are benches, with some shade, for sit-down eating, which is probably your... More

We stopped by for a quick bite after an afternoon in Mystic. It was not typical roadside greasy, seafood - they managed to keep it pretty tidy and light. The scallop sandwich was especially nice and the french fries were nice thick cuts and crispy but not raw. They don't have a kids menu per se but offered to provide... More

We stopped here for lunch to try a lobster roll. It was absolutely delicious with large pieces of lobster. We liked it so much that we went back a second time for lunch for more lobster rolls. EXCELLENT food!!!!

Had whole belly clam dinner and it was done perfectly! Not greasy a bit. Portion was on the smaller side but the quality made up for it. Can't beat very easygoing ambiance next to Mystic River with Seaport in view.

My wife and I visit Mystic 3-4 times per year and always stop here for lunch. There is a good and diverse menu, friendly staff and quick service. You cannot beat the location. It's a nice sunny spot right on the Mystic River. You can sit and watch the sailboats pass by as you eat.

Just what we were looking for in a roadside food stand. Great fried clams and a view that couldn't be beaten.

A trip to Mystic is not complete without visiting this roadside restaurant. Just thinking about their fried whole belly clams makes my mouth water. They are not to be missed. We have been going here for over 20 years now.
