I thought in the short time we had in this part of the world that S&P Oyster co. did as good a job of combining great food, quality service and perfect location as anywhere else we visited.

“One of the must see restaurants of Mystic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2010

We love the setting and the ambiance of the S&P. The wait can be long on the weekends as this place has a prime-o location and tasty food and drink. Make a reservation ahead of time. The place is hip and fun and you can definitely beat up you wallet here if you want to but you don't have to. It is not cheap but why should it be? It is great food, great views, and good service. We did not make it here this year (we were feeling super casual so we did not want to have romantic dinners) but I am regretting it already. Definitely a restaurant worth waiting a few minutes to eat at.

“We had a few meals here and enjoyed all”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2010

We were there on 3 different occasions during one trip to Mystic, and enjoyed all - drinks/apps, lunch, and dinner. Only complaints, make the single bathrooms unissex to avoid the long lines at the front door for the ladies room and add lights to umbrellas so one can see his/her food at night. Our lunch on the patio was particularly enjoyable and we had a great server, Rachael.

“Not worth the price”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2010

The food was like bad wedding food. The bisque had a film on top like it had been sitting in the bowl for quite awhile before it arrived at our table. We had 4 different entrees and they were all terrible. Definitely not worth the price. It was a very pretty location, but I was looking for good food! Go somewhere else!

“Great location - OK food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2010

The restaurant is in the perfect location for watching the boats and seeing the drawbridge go up, but the food is nothing special. Your basic tourist fare at tourist prices.
