We have eaten at the S&P numerous times over the past 10 years and it has never disappointed! I don't know if I would say that about very many places. It is consistently great food, good service, gorgeous views in a relaxed atmosphere. While there are a lot of seafood offerings, they always have a special touch. You won't find... More

We stopped in for lunch on a rainy, weekend afternoon in the fall, but still had to wait about 10 minutes for a table. The wait was worth it, as we had a great window table on the second floor with a superb view of the river below. Both of our seafood entrees were tasty and the service was excellent.... More

Went here having read some very good reviews, although a few were disappointed customers. Overall, the food was good, although my wife`s pasta was not well cooked.The food was pricey, but the wine was ridiculously overpriced. I felt it was too over-reliant on its reputation and riverside location.Would not consider returning.

I have been to Mystic many times but never before to S&P. From now on it will be in the top of my list. Good service. A menu that suits the palates of multiple family members. The views on the river near the drawbridge are perfect for a summer dinner. The Oysters are the best. Fresh. Many varieties. The staff... More

Went here for dinner based off the ratings and had the best time. Definitely make a reservation ahead of time. We went while the sun was still up so we had great views of the water. Awesome service with even better food. Totally worth the price!

I'm so glad I listened to the previous good reviews in picking this restaurant for lunch. I know when the drinks and bread are delicious then I'm in for a treat. The Bloody Mary was absolutely the best. I didn't even have alcohol in my drink and it was still fabulous. The herbed bread with olive oil was the perfect... More

I wanted clam chowder and our innkeeper recommended S & P. He was spot on for fabulous clam chowder and everything else that we had while there. Service was exceptional!

I am greatly impress with this restaurant. I visited it looking for raw oysters, and we found one of the best restaurants that I have been. First is located along the river with awesome views. I recommend to sit outside. The food fantastic: great selection of oysters, the entrees to die for. We order a seafood pasta recommended by our... More

The good: great location, good menu, nice beer and cheerful front of house. Good steak. The bad. Seafood pasta had a great sauce over lukewarm pasta. Server was sloppy and lost interest when thought we weren't going to order lots of food (so we didn't). A good experience soured. PS: Root beer was a glass of ice.

Thank Kevin C
