We stopped here for lunch when arriving in Mystic. The people were nice, the food was good. Not great or anything spectacular but we enjoyed our lobster rolls and breaded fish and fries. I liked the casual, outside atmosphere and picnic tables. I'm not sure if all is freshly made but it was good.

Lobster roll and scallop roll were excellent. Snack bar kind of place with picinic tables outside . It was in the 90's the day we stopped and was very glad for the umbrella. Nice view of the river. Food was restaurant quality , better than expected from a "snack bar"

This place is very popular, but it must not be for the food. The location is outstanding with picnic tables overlooking the harbor. The food is average take out, you'd think with the location they'd have some great seafood & hot dogs, but not so much. And it's a little pricey for the quality. Still, if you have kids this...

Was nice to sit outside near the water and eat fresh seafood. Generous portions. Will definitely dine here again, when in the area.

We have come here for light lunch. Near aquarium & Rte 95. Can recommend chowder and lobster roll, Good value. Nice outdoor seating overlooking the water. Easy parking. Don't miss ice cream stand (same owners I believe) next door. Can't beat this for a quick but excellent bite.

En route to and from Cape Cod and New Jersey, and back to Providence, I've actually stopped here 3 times in the past 3 weeks. It's got a window for ordering and another for serving, with lots of outdoor tables, some sheltered under a roof and others with umbrellas. We ordered everything from hot dogs and BLT's to salads and... More

My family and I stopped here in order to grab a bite to eat before heading back on the highway to go home. There was only one couple in front of us and then us. The couple got their food and we had to wait roughly 15 minutes for ours. This was 2 hot dogs and a fisherman's platter. I... More

It's a throwback roadside fried food festival shack by the river. It has the best fast seafood in the area. It is always packed, but service is fast so don't let that or the small parking lot scare you off. It's not cheap, but it's worth every penny. What more do I need to say? The food is fresh and...
