“Great food, great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

A recommendation from a local storekeeper sent us here early evening. We sat at the bar and enjoyed a couple of beers from a great selection before having dinner, also at the bar. Lobster roll and asparagus on the side was gorgeous, my husbands burger was top notch. Service and staff charming and efficient. It has a genuine pub feel to it and was very welcoming. Upstairs looked more formal and not what we wanted in jeans and Tshirts after a long drive, so the pub downstairs was perfect. Thanks DPI.

“Sea side tavern”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

Nice place for a dinner. You can bring kids, but older than toddlers so they can appreciate the nautical environment. Parking is limited, but free.

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

The Daniel Packer Inn was wonderful!!! The portions were so large we almost needed a hand truck to wheel me out of there. The fried calamari appetizer was delicious as was the main course. Go and eat there!!!!

“Fine Food & Historic Dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

The Captain Daniel Packer Inne is located in a quaint old building, and you really feel you are dining in old Mystic. The menu is varied with steak and seafood, The lobster lolipops appetizer is delicious, although a little pricey at $11 for 3. The Fruit de Mar was fresh and excellent and made as requested. Very reasonably priced good wines available. Everyone enjoyed our dinner.

“Great Tavern”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

This was a great tavern with great food and a fun atmosphere. The 'smashing pumpkin' drink made with pumpkin beer and 'moonshine' was delicious. The food had a wide range from burgers to grilled salmon. We ate in the pub but the restaurant looked nice and a bit more formal. Would recommend to anyone eating in Mystic!
