Food was extremely over priced and had no flavor. I'm not sure what everyone else is raving about but I will not be back. We got the S&P seafood pasta and the Ecuadorian slow roasted chicken.. Both were awful! Two stars for the cute interior decor and outside seating right on water.

You must have a reservation especially on the weekends or you will have a long wait. You can eat inside or out. Outside is sitting by the water via nice umbrella tables. Great service and choices of many salads and sandwiches for lunch. There is NO bar here but they do have bar service. Try the Crab Cakes and any... More

We stopped in on Sunday morning and had an early lunch. The food was excellent as was the service. The atmosphere is always wonderful and the view outstanding. We always come here every time we come to Connecticut.

We chose the restaurant based on the location on the river and after looking over the menu. It was a wonderful choice. Since it was very humid the evening we went, we chose to sit inside - upstairs. We were given a table by the window so had a nighttime view of the river. The food and service was excellent.... More

We have eaten here a few times. This review is for the last time we were here. If you like gourmet seafood and don't mind the price, then this is the place for you. The last time we ate here, it was so packed, that we had a difficult time finding parking. I think there was a waiting list, as... More

My husband and I had dinner here on 9/21/16. We ordered the bouillabaisse and the blue crab ravioli with grilled scallops. Both were excellent. We enjoyed good service, nice atmosphere and decor. If you go try to get a table by the window or outside to enjoy the view of the river.

Based on recommendations from both our hotel and Trip Advisor, the four of us stopped at S& P Oyster for an early dinner (4:00 PM) after walking around Mystic shops for the afternoon. While we had a reservation it was not necessary at this early hour on a mid-September weekday. We sat on the patio with river views. Service was... More

Wait staff is knowledgeable and friendly not only regarding the food but answering questions about the town and shops. They go above and beyond to see that your dining experience is superb. The view of the harbor and village is fabulous. The lobster bisque is wonderful, as are their signature oysters.

Thank Jan B
