This place is directly on the water in beautiful downtown Mystic. It is absolutely beautiful with flowers everywhere. The service is very good but the food and drinks are only average and quite pricey. I rated this place a 4 primarily due to location.

We spent a ton of money here, but it was a special occasion and it was worth it.The food and service are good. The view is lovely. Call ahead to request a table. We got there at noon on Sunday and were seated right away because we had called the night before. By the time we left there was a... More

We celebrated my husband's birthday there with our 2 kids. We were seated upstairs at a table nestled in the corner with a great view of the Bascule Bridge. There was a wonderful couple seated at the next table - they helped make the evening great. Our 2 servers were attentive and professional. Husband and I both had the swordfish... More

Beautiful setting , especially in the evening lit up by the waterside. We ordered appetizers and dinner 30 minutes later everything was served together. The waiter had the manager come to our table he bought us a round of drinks, and got everything right. the food was good the atmosphere was great

Excellent location and view of the river. Food was excellent and creative. My only concern was the restaurant does not take reservations only "preferred seating requests",.We arrived and left our name and were told they would call our cell phone when ready. One hour and 45 minutes later we got the call. But I guess it was worth the wait.

I have been to this restaurant three times in the last month and have never been disappointed. Twice for a late lunch and once for dinner. The service is usually very good and the staff accommodating. The food is very good and the prices for lunch are a bargain. I like sitting outside on the patio weather permitting. For Dinner...

My aunt and I had a great time, sitting at the upstairs bar. The wait for a table downstairs or outside was pretty long (very busy Saturday afternoon) so we sat at the bar instead. Our bartender was busy making (what seems like the entire restaurants' entire drink orders) but still made time for my aunt and I. I was... More

They really have it all down to a science. We put our name in for a table outside on a busy Friday night and were told when to come back. We walked around town for 35 minutes - just about right, and got back in time to wait 5 minutes for our table right by the drawbridge. Food was very... More

One of our favorite restaurants in Mystic. Great food, nice atmosphere, and very friendly staff. The outside dining by the Bridge and river is very relaxing. We never had anything but a wonderful meal there, and the upstairs bar is a great place to hang out.

Thank John T
