“loved it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

We stepped in for lunch while wandering Old Mystick Village, and could not have been more pleased-just what we had in mind. Clean, spacious, super friendly, helpful, fast service, the clam chowder was thick, creamy and delicious, juicy steak sandwich, crisp hot fries, thick shakes. The bill for 4 of us was more than reasonable and we were stuffed.

“Cute place-reasonably priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

If you are looking for a quick bite to eat, at a good price-this is the place. It is a cute restaurant located in Olde Mistic Village. Everything is under $10. Fast and friendly service and the food is very good. They serve mostly sandwiches and some seafood. They also had a kids menu

“Oh, the Hot Lobster Rolls!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

You wouldn't expect a place like this to be serving such delicious lobster rolls! For only $10 you get the tastiest little treat- a toasted, buttery hotdog-type bun, overflowing with hearty lobster meat. Hot lobster rolls are really only found in a few states, and I have tried them all over, and this place is in the top 3! I haven't tried anything other than the lobster roll and the clam chowder ( which is also surprisingly tasty, with a thinner consistency and teeming with clams!), so I cant speak for the rest of the menu. But the lobster roll itself is worth the trip. I make a point of stopping anytime I'm close by. We ate here both on our way to RI and on our way back- if only we lived closer! Also, great staff and when you're done you can wander around Olde Mistick Village- then when you're done just hop right back on I-95. Just be sure to arrive early, because everything closes around 6pm.

“Nothing to Clamor About”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

We stopped for a quick bite before seeing MUD (a very good flick). It was about 5:30 on Monday. We were greeted well and quickly informed the kitchen was closing so choose quickly.
The servers where semi attentive as they were finishing side work and the meals delivered promptly. The food was nothing more than diner average. The appearance and textures seemed boxed or pre-prepare institutional. The portions were fair for the price. It was for all intentions, quick, effective and ready for volume, We were neither disappointed nor impressed. Just fed.

“Some fish cooked, some fish RAW”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

S L O W service. Never asked if we wanted more drinks after the first round. My fish... on the same plate was one cooked piece of white fish and one still frozen in the middle....most of the middle.
GROSS! We will never eat there again and do not recommend it.
