My husband & I have been making frequent trips for years, between our home in Hartford & our beach house in Rhode Island, and have stopped often for dinner in Mystic & Groton. But this past Thursday was our first visit to Water St. Cafe. We're so glad we stopped and will definitely be back. The ambience was warm, cozy & casual on the first night of December, and we were delighted with dinner music by a guitar player, which was wonderful. Food was delicious, and the only reason I'm not giving 5-stars is that, wanting a fairly quick meal, we only had an entree each with no starters, salad or dessert. I had the combo of Duck & Scallops, which though their menu changes daily, is always featured as they're known for it, and I was very happy! My husband is still raving about his salmon with spicy noodles & vegetables.
As others have said, the menu is very reasonably priced. We will definitely be back, though probably not during the summer as they don't take reservations and I can only imagine what the crowds would be like when it's not off-season.
