“Very Disappointed”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

Stopped for a bite to eat after a nice afternoon in Mystic. Food service type onion rings, my shrimp plate was not impressive (medium shrimp - not that good and passable french fries. I have passed this place at least 30 times over the last 4-5 years...
A 5 on a scale of 1 to 10.

Next time, I'll keep driving.

“Tasty lobster roll and nice view”
Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

This shack was a great spot for a pit stop and 3:00 snack if you're in the area but not worth a major detour. Cold lobster roll was traditional ME style (with mayo) and generous portion. $15.99 is going rate. Quick service and gorgeous view of the water.

“Fun Stop”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

Had a fried calamari and a fried whole-belly clam dinner. Pretty good food but largely what you'd expect. Portions just ok for the price. Guess you pay a little more for the location.

“Good food - frozen and pricy!”
Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

Let's start by saying, it's frozen food for the most part but taste good. The prices are just inflated! So, I only stopped because of convenience and we were starving. I would only recommend if you are limited with time. The burgers looked good. I had a whole belly clam role and it wasn't overfilled for 12.99. The clam fritters were not filled with clams so don't bother to try those. I saw the hot dogs and they looked good. All the seafood looks yummy but it's not fresh.

“Very expensive lobster roll!”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

Stopped by for a lobster roll. It was $17.00! I bought it anyway since I was splurging on vacation and I was there already. It wasn't quite worth the price, but it was big. Other people were getting the foot longs, which were $3.49 and were huge. The fried seafood looked good, but when does fried seafood not look good?.
