We sat upstairs with a beautiful view of the Mystic Rive and had a cocktail and a nosh, which were both excellent. Chowder had a few chunks of flour, and not too many clams, but the casino was excellent. Very nice bartender and service was very good. Not too fond of the tablecloths upstairs in the dining room, but the... More

Great views and ambiance, Jim I shrimp scampi and lobster pasta were incredible. The ,boater bisque is one of the best we've had to date. The service was top notch and... More

Live in Mystic and have gone here at least a half dozen times over the years. Consistently good food and service. Can be quite crowded and usually haven`t accepted reservations. Very small parking lot, and parking on the street is difficult. Views from the restaurant overlook the river, the drawbridge, and the neighboring Seaport. Famous for their seafood, including clam...

My husband and I had a delicious dinner at S & P Oyster Co. He had the monkfish with black risotto and I had the scallops. We both enjoyed our meals and will go back again!

It is honestly a bit pricy - I should say the price is metropolitan equivalent. This was our second time but the food was very reliable and the ambiance was overall good. We brought a toddler but staff served very nicely and pleasantly, their service was quite professional. One minus thing was I didn't enjoy their oyster soup that was... More

My wife and I had the clams casino and the King Crab legs as an appetizer. They were amazing! The crab was so sweet and tender and very fresh. The clams were tender and the topping was very flavorful. We shared the 4 jumbo shrimp over squash risotto, that to was incredible. I have not had a bad meal here... More
