One of my favorite seafood restaurants in all of New England, I make a point of having several lunches and several dinners at the S&P Oyster Co. every year. The seafood never disappoints and they do offer steaks and chops for the non-seafood eater. I usually find something on the ever changing daily special offering. The location with great views...

Read good things about this place so we tried it, and glad we did. When we asked for a table for two, the hostess said 35-50 minutes wait. 😳 We decided to go ahead and wait. The hostess said we could wait at the bar upstairs. While waiting, a couple seats opened up at the bar so we just decided... More

Came for my birthday and waitress was more interested in talking with co-workers than waiting on us. Felt like second class citizens because I really wanted fish and chips. We weren't even offered bread.

Stopped in for lunch on a Friday and was seated by the window for a wonderful view of the river and the draw-bridge. Started with a bowl of clam chowder for the three of us to share. Thick and creamy with a lot of clams. Very tasty. Had the fried oyster taquitos with fries and slaw for the main meal.... More

Whenever we have visitors, we take them here. The food is delicious and the view can't be beat (Mystic River and bridge). I love the fried oysters and the butternut squash and shrimp risotto. I have a hard time ordering anything else when I'm there. Highly recommend this restaurant!

Everything was good....the boulabaise, the monkfish preparation, the chowder, the shrimp and grits. However, with entrees priced $25 to $30 and even higher, it was off-putting , to say the least, to be informed that only one roll came with the meal. Additional rolls are 65 cents each. What? The rolls were not even that good!

6 of us Canadians on a conference attended here for dinner. All orders arrived in a timely fashion and everyone had great flavoured food (steak,tuna, salmon, cod). The clam chowder was out of this world, creamy, thick as the spoon did stand vertical on its own. Highly recommend.

Very good food quality. Disappointed that meals do not include soup or salad. It is a separate charge. Wine by the bottle is very expensive but mixed drinks are comparatively priced. Wait staff work in pairs and are very attentive. Not a large space. However they do have dining on the lower as well as upper floor. Make sure to... More

It was my Fiancé's birthday and I had called two days before for priority seating. When we arrived, we were immediately greeted and seated right away, upstairs, by the window, with the most beautiful view of the seaport. Our servers (we had two) came to our table, very pleasant and knowledgeable with the menus and we immediately chose two special... More

Our visit to S&P Oyster Co on Feb 22 was a delight. Although we did not have a reservation we were seated right away. Our waitress was pleasant and attentive throughout the meal. The atmosphere is comfortable, with a view out the windows of the Mystic River. The food was carefully prepared with quality ingredients.We started with salad each: I... More
