Food was delicious. Would recommend a reservation as it gets crowded fast. Food was fresh and tasty! Walking distance to the main strip in Mystic. Very convenient.

My boyfriend and I have been here many times and love it every time! Delicious food; must try the fried mozzarella! Good Italian pasta dishes and great pizza! Try sitting in their cute patio on the side of the building, it's awesome back there!

You can't go wrong with your meal at Anthony J's. The food was great and staff was friendly and helpful. The restaurant is small but the way the seating is arranged you have your privacy. This was our favorite restaurant during our short stay in Mystic.

Always delicious, AJ's has a unique menu and we love frequenting here throughout the year. From the "Hot Rocks" to the chocolate box, everything is a MUST! AJ's holds it's own as one of our top 3 mystic restaurants. No specific order intended but: Bravo Bravo - DPI - AJ's, all absolute must-tries.
