We just returned from another tasty visit to Mitchells by the River. It is a small little outdoor place by the Ferry Landing in Rocky Hill. You walk a few steps to order at the window. There are a wide variety of items including great seafood, the basic hamburg, hot dogs and chicken which kids seem to love, breakfast items... More
