We ordered several items and they were all sweet and a bit bland. It was good that the food was not generally salty but at the same time it also should not be sweet. Servers are very friendly and responsive!

We decided to dine here on our last night in Mystic. We sat at the bar and had a couple drinks, then requested to move to a booth to have dinner. But the bartender said we couldn't transfer drinks to dinner and would have to settle our bar bill first before we could be seated. Did not experience this at... More

The Ancient Mariner is a good stop for a drink, lunch or dinner when you're strolling through downtown Mystic. The calamari is excellent!

We ate at the ancient mariner in mystic the last night of Mystic restaurant week. Three of us had the prix-fixed dinner at the price of $20.16. This was the best deal we could have gotten. We all started with lobster bisque soup. It was outrageous, some of the best I ever had. I had the yankee pot roast, which... More

My boyfriend and I went here right in the middle of dinner rush and were seated promptly - our waitress was good and checked on us frequently. However, we felt the food was extremely mediocre for the prices. We ordered nachos with pulled pork on them to start - they were just a pile of overcooked cheese, and you really... More

We were a large party - 10 and 4 were kids. All meals were tasty, service was excellent and I would recommend this place to all folks (minus hard core foodies). Food was good, but we did not leave feeling like it was excellent. Kids menu is solid. Love the location and the fireplace.

Cozy, classic, charming New England Seafood restaurant in the heart of Mystic. We had an outstanding seafood dinner - Lobster pot pie and broiled seafood casserole lobster, scallops, and shrimp. Generous portions, warm fresh baked bread, delicious vegetables perfectly cooked, garlic mashed potatoes. The service was excellent on a Saturday night. We were so pleased, that we went back the...
