Having visited most of the Mystic restaurants, this Sunday night special of prime ribs was superb. We had a generous portion with nicely prepared sides. Cocktails were excellent only surpassed by very fine service with a pleasant holiday attitude. Certainly will revisit.

Went in for a small bite, we had ceviche and also chowder; delicious! Best part was visiting with Rachel. She is a walking encyclopedia about Mystic. Her knowledge about the area, and also about sailing is fantastic. She really made the experience remarkable.

Re-visited this landmark after the boating season was over. She's under new ownership and a new chef. The revised menu is refreshing and the entrees we ordered were well prepared, well plated and well enjoyed.
