Recently had dinner at the Mystic Oyster Club with a colleague who lived in town, and was expecting to be amazed. Unfortunately, it was very "Hit and Miss". Had a house specialty "dark and stormy" drink and it was quite good. Also had oysters on the half shell as an appetizer that were three different varieties. The oysters were very fresh, served with horse radish and cocktail sauce and were delicious. So far so good. However, for the main course I ordered the pan roasted fluke with black beluga lentils, sautéed spinach and a sage with lemon cream. I was disappointed. The fluke had a light breaded coating on it, but the coating and skin of the fish was very sticky and peeled right off of the fish. The fish was a bit rubbery and did not seem to be cooked quite right. Finally the fish, as well as the sides were entirely too salty! I may have just hit a bad night, but for the price and the build up, I expected better! I admire that the chefs and restaurant prides itself on using fresh items from local farms, but the main course, in this case did not deliver! However, I will mention that did have the chocolate, chili, and Mexican cinnamon crème brulee with an expresso, and it was a delightful dessert. Unfortunately, I regret to report that the main course made for an unpleasant dinning experience overall. Which is a shame as the service and atmosphere of the restaurant was really good.
