A business associate who is local took me here. It was amazing. The view of the water is stunning if you sit upstairs. The oysters were outstanding and the tuna was to die for. Everyone in our party loved their food and Justin and John took great care of us.

We enjoyed a nice dinner here during our Mystic getaway. We were seated upstairs with a nice view of the river. I had tender jumbo shrimp cocktail and my husband had "the best clam chowder he's ever had". I loved my perfectly pan-seared cod loin served with cannelini beans, wilted greens and creamy mashed potatoes with a light lemon butter... More

After reading reviews and getting recommendations we were told this is the best restaurant in Mystic to try. We were so disappointed. The decor and location are great. Even with a reservation and an early dinner we had to wait, then we were lead to a 4 seat table and we had 5 in our party - we stood in... More

We enjoyed the water view and atmosphere (felt like we paid for the view). For the price, the food was mediocre. We were disappointed.

This restaurant is right on the water in Mystic. We went on Sunday and it was very busy. The food is a little pretentious and not anything special. My suggestion would be to stick with the basics. Get the New England Clam Chowder and go for the "naked" option for the fish. Everything is fresh but the prep is lacking.

Friendly atmosphere, service was great and food was amazing. I had, of course, Oysters and the pork dish, cooked... More

We went here for dinner after making a reservation a week in advance. We had to wait 20 minutes to sit, which I thought was crazy with a reservation. And the reservation was early for dinner.. The chowder was good and the shrimp risotto; as well as the petite filet mignon. The views were very pretty as well. However, the... More

Great table overlooking the Mystic River - great location across the street from Whalers Inn, where we stayed, downtown Mystic. My husband had shrimp over risotto with squash - he said delicious. Being a non sea food eater I had filet mignon with mixed veggies and poblano pepper jack cheese stuffed potato. Excellent! Our waiter Justin and his partner (... More
