    We came on a busy Saturday night which happened to be homecoming, which explains why this was one of the few restaurants with open reservations the day before. The server did a good job though she had a hard time hearing our order in the noise. We asked for the dessert menu but she brought the check by mistake. No other issues. Despite the full restaurant we were seated and served promptly. We all enjoyed our food, though my clam chowder was less hot than I would have liked. We have dined here before for lunches and I must admit the atmosphere is better when it is busy as it was on this occasion.

    I travel a lot for business, and that means that I also eat out quite a bit. I've had great food and great service at many places, I've also had the displeasure of having many bad dining experiences. I'm kinda a "been there and done that" type of person when it coming to dining out. But I wanted to write this review to call out the exceptional service that we received from "Jason" at last night's meal. Jason was friendly and welcoming, and paid us a great level of attention despite also having a large party to serve. He offered good and accurate recommendations from the menu, and was very prompt and friendly with all points of service. The food here was good...but the service was GREAT. Kudos to Jason...we'll be back to see him again.

    We have had a bad experience the last two visits to Mitchell's. Sadly we will not be returning. Nice atmosphere, but the food has been very unpleasant our last two times. Fish was terribly overcooked. Sent that back to the kitchen and took forever for a new dish to arrive. Had to send my cocktail back twice. Vegetables were cold. Just disappointing. For the price, it's just not worth us returning.

    The food quality is very good, especially for a chain restaurant. Service was fair to good, we had a 10 minute wait for drinks from the bar. Appetizers and entrees were delivered timely, but we had to ask for bread to be brought to the table. We asked to be relocated, because we were seated in front of the doors - very drafty. We were immediately accomodated and moved to a booth, which was better, but could still feel the cold draft when patrons entered/left.

    We made a reservation a week in advance on this site since it was a dinner with friends to celebrate my birthday (a party of 4). We got at least 2 confirming e-mails and a phone call requesting we call back to confirm. After all that, we were seated in the worst booth in the restaurant.....by the entrance and hostess stand. We were finally moved to another booth in the back of the restaurant and all went well from there on mostly due to the efforts of Jason, our wonderful and attentive server. He saved the evening!

    Although, we like the restaurant, we have had better meals there. It was unfortunate for we had guests with us. My steak and our accompanying guest's were good; however, our other guest has a chicken dish and salad that was not satisfactory. She didn't want to complain though. I will give them another chance though, we like the proximity to home and overall the food is good.

    If your looking for a sticky floor and table and Applebee's like service I highly recommend Mitchell's. Fish dish was good, savory and well seasoned. Seasonal pasta dish was cold, the cream in the sauce had broken, pre made pasta was crunchy. The coffees we ordered never came (but made it to the bill). Admittedly, the server was not made aware of these concerns in a timely manner due to the fact we could not find her. Overall, we were really disappointed.

    Went to Mitchell's to celebrate my dad turning 90 yo this year. I made reservations and we were seated fairly quickly. The waitress, Tasha (I think), was very friendly. The food was good - the scallops the best. The noise level was perfect for my three kids - not too quiet like a library but not too noisy like a crowded bar.

    I want to say that I was disappointed with my experience. I read it was suggested to make a reservation and ask for a special table as this was for our wedding anniversary. So I made a reservation online and later called to ask about anniversary events. The hostess stated they will have a special seating for us and also give the lady a rose with a special desert. When we arrived they didn't review the notes and were not prepared for us, they had to have our anniversary told to them, etc..I was not very happy.

    Dined on 9/12/2014
    The first, and very noticeable distraction while at this restaurant, was the very wierd, horsey-stable smell that permeated this place. If the weather had been warmer, we would have definitely requested that we be moved to the outdoor tables. Next, we didnt feel that our server was very knowledgeable of enough of the menu items to help us make a decision for our food choices. Finally, we expected much more experience with the wines in a place of this caliber. Because of the amateur level of service, it further diminished our dining experience. At least the food was excellent.

    We went on Sunday evening for this visit, unfortunately Mitchell's was out of lobster tails. When I mentioned to our server that that was the reason we came that night her first response was"it's not my fault". I never blamed her. My wife noted that our server seemed to cater to me because she thought I was paying the bill (I was). She also seemed to forget things. We sat on the patio which was nice but I would not recommend it if it was a hot sunny evening. While we could hear some traffic the noise, it was muted. I ordered my usual crab cakes and my wife ordered a tilapia, both were very good. Yes we will return, probably not on a Sunday evening.

    I spent a considerable amount of time searching the internet for high end seafood restaurants and came across Mitchells at a suggestion of my daughter. The occasion was my 68th Birthday and I wanted lobster. After checking out menu on line I made the reservation on a Thursday evening. We had wonderful service, drinks and food for a memorable evening. Mussels, Caesar salad, 3 lobster tails each (they were on sale as a limited time special) prepared expertly with asparagus and smashed redskins. Mentioning my birthday my waiter offered a complementary crème Brule which I had never had before but is my new favorite dessert. The experience was awesome in a very comfortable booth. I won't wait for a birthday to go back it was memorable.

    We come often to this place and the food is always delicious, great fresh fish. Twice we've had the lobster specials and it is a pretty good deal. It is a little pricey, though, for the actual food you get, but overall really good. The only bad comment I have is that our initial waiter decided to stop servicing our table and another waitress had to take over. She was really honest and said "they just told me to take over", I was with a group of 5, including some seniors and I believe the waiter was being rude and inpatient. In any case, the new waitress was excellent and really nice with all of us. She earned her tip.

    The choice I made - Blackened Tilapia really was a scrawny piece of fish with slightly warm potatoes and dried vegetables - seemed to have been under the warming lamps too long. My wife's experience was the same. Not the best experience I have had at Mitchell's and we had three guests with us so, a little underwhelming.

    Met friends for dinner last night. Choices were good and the service was good. Three out of the four meals were hot, one was barely warm. The staff tried to fix the problem but the meal still has warm. The only tried reheating the food and it didn't really work. The manager did apologize but we didn't have time to have them attempt to fix it again. Overall a good experience and we will return.

    I was disappointed. I selected the Lobster and beef tenderloins. The lobster looked like a large shrimp (yes it was that small). The beef was overcooked on the outside and raw on the inside. It was the most chewy steak I have eaten in a long time. The staff stood next to our table chatting. Waiter was cleaning up the floor next to us with a broom and dust pan. It was my birthday and i was expecting a more positive experience The portions were small and EXPENSIVE. One bright spot was the carrot cake. I will not be back!
