I noticed this little sea side place as we drove into Mystic. After some sightseeing, we drove back to find this place. It was just a little building with outdoor seating only. We ordered scallops and clam fritters. The fritters were a bit doughy but tasted fine. The scallops were soooo good. It was fun to sit and watch the... More

We stopped in on a sunny afternoon and had some lunch. A lobster roll with fries and a whole clam belly sandwich. Both were very good and the buns were just right. The view was nice with a gentle breeze coming off the river. A nice find!!

Very cute 'on the go' spot, beautiful view, friendly service and nice food... Tried the lobster role, scallop role and the hot dog and chicken tenders for the kids, all vanished... Food was fresh and very nice for a fast food joint. The view of the Mystic River from the scattered picnic tables was perfect for a cool sunny afternoon.

One of the best lobster rolls I've ever had. Picnic tables beside the water made for a great view while enjoying a great lunch.

This was one of my must stops for our trip to Stonington/Mystic, they do have a small parking lot but it was packed on a Monday afternoon, I can imagine during peak times it fills up quickly, short ride from mystic seaport and definitely worth it, service was excellent, you order at a walk up window and wait for your...

A nice little place to stop for a quick lunch. Dining outside along the Mystic River was a plus. Various seafood, burger, hot dog and platter options. I only chose a hotdog but it was really long and really good. Enjoyed the view.

I had flounder sandwich and wife had clam strips. Prices a little high for a walk up shack but the clam strips were tender and thick.

Just a small shack by the water that serves delicious lobster rolls, clam strips/bellies, fish, y'know, good stuff! The bun was buttery & nicely toasted, big chunks of lobster with bits of celery & lettuce for added taste & texture. This has become a regular stop for the family along the drive to or from NJ-RI.

When I think of my summer necessities, a day in Mystic/Stonington is high on the list, and the Sea View is a required stop. It's a typical sea food drive in where you order and pay and then pick up your order when your number is called. Whole belly fried clams are number one on my list of favorite foods,... More

Picnic tables with umbrellas or under covered roof sitting areas. Condiments kept chilled over ice. Clean and food not greasy at all!
