“Very well-run, with high quality food prepared plainly”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

A very clean, bright, pleasant site. We sat on the patio - fantastic location on a beautiful day. Suggest the priority seating service that they offer - for us, it worked just like a reservation. Service was prompt, efficient and attentive. Broiled seafood was nicely presented and high quality, but somewhat bland. I usually look for a little bit more imagination in preparation. Business guest had a luncheon sandwich that he enjoyed, but did not remark on.
Note that the parking lot at the restaurant is very limited - plan to arrive in time to park on the street.

“Delicious food, stellar service and beautiful food”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

We are two couples one from NYC one from Boston, looking for somewhere 1/2 way between to two to meet. This was so worth the drive. We had not called ahead but were seated at a window table within the time promised. We had some diet restrictions that our extremely pleasant and helpful server accommodated with ease. Our lunch was not only delicious but beautifully presented, the whole experience was exceptional. We will be back again soon!

“Perfect ending!”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

We had planned on dinner on Friday night but arrived late and the kids were tired so we decided on stopping in for lunch the next day. We stopped in around 4pm before our 3 hour journey home and we were so happy with our experience...we waited maybe 10 mins.... Got a table on the outside patio and Alex was out waitress and she was amaze!! Very attentive and knowledgeable of the menu (which I had already researched). We ordered the calamari to start and had the vegetable risotto with scallops which was delicious.... Also had the stuffed poblano pepper which was very impressive in presentation and taste... Also had a couple martini's which were perfect.... Even the burger which my 4 yr old ate was delicious! It was our second visit and we will def be back when we visit again. Perfect way to end a great weekend trip to mystic!

“Simply outstanding”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

Visited for the first time last week, combining it with a trip to the Seaport. Used the call ahead feature for an early dinner. When we arrived, we were promptly seated at a window seat over looking the drawbridge and harbor. I started with oysters which were wonderful.I had the seafood ambrosia and my wife had the cod. Both outstanding. The bread pudding for dessert is featured on the menu and rightfully so. We were team served by David and Mike, both of whom were very friendly, kept our sodas full and and made sure all our needs were taken care of promptly. The meal was served at a very comfortable pace. Not too fast so we could enjoy the experience, and not too slow so that we ever felt abandoned. We'll be back again when we are in the area.
