Nice lunch and ice cream spot for mid-winter lunch

This lunch spot is a short walk from the Steamboat Inn and a good spot for a quiet lunch in mid-winter. We happily missed the long summer lines and almost had the place to ourselves. The sandwiches were very good and so was the ice cream.

I had read about this place from others on trip advisor, and when me and my fiancee had went, we both had pinnies and dessert which were really good, really recommend this place.

We needed some place to eat quickly for three children and five adults. This did the job. Most of the food we ordered was pretty good--nothing spectacular, but the menu was diverse enough we all found something we wanted. The kids dug the ice cream. It's right next to the drawbridge so they loved running outside to watch it go... More

What a bad experience. My wife ordered the mint ice cream for our children. It didn't taste right so my wife wanted her money back, $7.50 for a small cup of ice cream. The kids behind the counter said they weren't authorized to give a refund. So they called the owner at home who promptly told us she doesn't give... More

I moved to Mystic this summer and was shocked at the crazy line for ice cream at the Mystic Drawbridge. I have tried all the ice cream shops in Mystic and can tell you this is the worst and most expensive option. If you don't want to wait 20 minutes and spend nearly $5 for a single cone head across...

Very overpriced for a skimpy amount of ice cream. Used to be a worker and they had black mold growing all over the freezers where the ice cream was kept. Owners are very unfriendly and create a very tense environment. Is not worth the 4.50 for a single

We stopped in one night and split an Oreo sundae. The ice cream was so good and the hot fudge delicious. It's a fantastic location too, right on the water next to the drawbridge.

Had one of the best paninis we've ever had ( The Fidel). Chicken and brown rice soup was soooo good on a fall day. Great windows to sit and eat with views of bridge, Mystic river and downtown mystic. Warm and cozy.
