Was in for a quick bite before a movie; greasy food, large portions, but as far as taste there are plenty joints in Mystic. So if you are in the mood for seafood try Go Fish across the street.

This so called restaurant is gross... The floor was sticky, the table had a match book under it to keep the table from wobbling. Our food was COLD! The rolls we had were soggy. It smelled like dirty diapers. An it wasn't that crowded wich should have clued us in as to why nobody was eating there! My kids had... More

We asked in the shoppes at Olde Mystic where we could get a light, late lunch. Ten Clams was one of the suggestions. Wow! We hit the jackpot! My husband decided to forego the "light lunch" and got fish and chips - one of the best he has ever had! My son and I shared the chili fries - very... More

We stop here all the time on our way to and from Cape Cod. Good food and attentive service in a comfortable setting. Very diverse menu. This visit we especially liked the burger, New England clam chowder, and fired scallops. You can't beat the prices. Everything is under "Ten Clams"

'Ten clams' = '$10' which is about the maximum most main courses will cost you. Service is great (no wait-staff bugging you with a question while your mouth is full), fast service and the portions are generous. The burgers especially were very good! During summer they have an ice-cream service window which is also pretty good. One step-up from a... More

Not last summer but a couple of summers before. Went on the basis of other TA reviews and were delighted with food and service. We turned up a little later and had certainly quiet ended down - nice walk around the complex after dinner

Stopped in here for a light lunch after visiting the aquarium. Good food and reasonable prices. Soups were very good lots of clams in the chowder. Clam fritters were enjoyed by all. Chalkboard specials were available in addition to the regular menu. Daughter had a big bowl of chowder that she gave thumbs up. Son had the buffalo chicken wrap... More

All of their prices are below $10 which makes for an inexpensive family meal. The food itself was good but nothing amazing. The service was slow and it took us about 30 minutes to get our food, but they were pretty busy. While the fish and chips and baked cod are the same price you get twice the amount of... More

We took a break from the Mystic Aquarium for lunch and were glad we found this spot. Cheap menu, tasted good, clean, quick. Perfect for small children. I will be going back the next time I go to the aquarium.
