A word from Oyster Club
Oyster Club, located in historic Mystic, Connecticut, is a casual fine dining restaurant and raw bar specializing in the richness of the New England coast and countryside.

The menus showcase food that travels the shortest distance from ‘farm & sea to table,’ with seasonality and location determining the day’s delicacies. Benefiting from the region’s many local farmers and fisherman, Oyster Club features bounty from the sea, pasture raised beef, local produce and artisanal cheeses, selections of which will change daily.

We believe Oyster Club is an extension of your home and that all will feel welcome at our table – please join us!

    The food is unbelievably fresh and delicious. Ambience is laid back and cozy - exactly what you want for an authentic New England meal. The mussels and chowder are a must have.

    I want to qualify this review first by saying we went on Easter and they were very busy. Salad was overdressed with too much feta mixed in. I had the new york strip which was a fabulous piece of meat but cold. My sisters husband had the cod which was tiny. The almond cake for dessert was amazing. Service was slow and the waitstaff seemed unhappy. I would probably not go back.

    We made a reservation for Easter Sunday, Brunch. Our information from their web site was apparently dated but, not removed. We were expecting a per person price buffet. We were informed that the information was last years' menu. We ordered from a limited but, very interesting menu. The food was very good. The Bloody Marys were great. The negative was the price. Very expensive!! Small and dark dining area. No view.

    Was an excellent evening on all counts. The food, service, and décor were all outstanding. Ask for Kendra. She was extremely knowledgeable about the restaurant's 'farm & sea to table' focus, as well as the inventive menu, which changes daily. We love rustic venues and their rough sawn, wide planked dining area fits the bill. Had reservations at 7. Last orders in by closing at 9. The atmosphere was very family, and we stayed , as well as most other tables, well past closing. We will definitely be back to check out the upper deck overlooking the Mystic River.

    We always love food that is fresh...farm to table ot farm to fork as the Brits say! New menu every day....as my wife and Iove a wide range of foods and flavours, if you want something new and possibly different, this is the place to go....wine list is good...lot's of Italian ( missed the Italian wine class..so heaven knows what I should order)..but other good choices from the old and new world.

    I had made reservations for two for Saturday night and was seated immediately upon arrival. The staff was more than friendly including our waitress who was knowledgable of the menu. We devoured a selection of Fishers and Moonstone oysters from the raw bar which were amongst the tastiest and freshest oyster I've ever enjoyed. I couldn't help but notice how beautifully cleaned and prepared they were and contemplated putting in a second order. The dinner menu was an impressive array of land and sea options. We decided on the Crispy Fried Tofu and Pan Roasted NY Strip which were both cooked to perfection with perfectly paired sides. The portions were generous and the dessert delectable. We'll definitely be back!!!!

    We have been excited to try this place for years and it has always been busy. Finally we planned ahead with a reservation and we will definitely be doing that again. The food was excellent. The menu was limited but as a foodie I really enjoyed trying the different courses. The staff was pleasant and attentive but it was about an hour from when we walked in the door to when we got our food. We noticed that there wasn't a lot coming out of the kithen which was odd as it was full. As I said, worth the wait as once it arrived the food was amazing. We had appetizers to hold is over and the dessert came out in plenty of time, it was just the entree that took a while.

    Nice location on Water Street in Mystic. Small comfortable space. Excellent service and food. Just the right size servings; don't expect a giant plate of food here. It is all about the quality of the locally sourced ingredients. I stopped in for a late (9pm) lite bite. I had Noank oysters and RI littlenecks to start. Very good and served ice cold. Beef tartar was another light bite that was a taste sensation. Finally a bowl of New England Clam Chowder which was very flavorful and much lighter than expected. Probably the best I have had. Excellent cocktails and a good choice of tap beers. Service was as good as it gets. Enjoy.

    Had an excellent dinner last year when we visited the area and an equally great meal recently. Both fish and beef cooked to perfection with delightful and interesting sides. Sunday/Monday 1/2 price for bottle of wine was a nice bonus. For a cold Monday night in March, it was busy. That's a great sign that the locals appreciate The Oyster Clubs consistently wonderful food and good service.

    Really great spot if you're looking for a nice meal in Mystic. Less touristy than other spots, and while it's a little more expensive the food is delicious, fresh, local and the techniques are straight out of the best gastropubs in NYC. The chowder was delicious, a higher-end take on a New England Classic.I loved this place and will definitely be making it our spot in Mystic!

    4 of us made a reservation for a Saturday night . . . restaurant was bustling but we found a table in the bar to wait and enjoy a drink. We were seated within about 20 minutes . . .and had a wonderful dinner. The men selected steaks, even though they felt they should have ordered fish . . .but the steaks were amazing (we all tried it!) And the varied selection of oysters and huge portion of muscles kept the women very happy. Our server, and actually all the staff, were very friendly and knowledgeable. We will definite recommend Oyster Club . . .and be coming back!

    The Oyster Club is a great addition to the number of good restaurants in Mystic. The food was good, the wait staff very adequate and the ambiance very nice. The only suggestion I have is that the number of dollar signs indicating the level of price should be changed from $$ to $$$.

    After a year of trying for last minute reservations I decided to plan it. What a night! Fabulous food, amazing service by every staff member you might just pass by and a lively crowd that was enjoying themselves and not at the expense of people around them. This is by far my favorite restaurant in southeastern Ct. It competes with the NY food scene.

    I love the fact that everything you get is so fresh and incorporates our local farmers, bread makers and fishermen. It was fabulous and have recommended it many times over already. Had been in a few times for happy hour and the wine and oysters were delicious. We really enjoyed Rocky "the shucker". He did a great job and our oysters looked great and no grit. So clean which isn't always the case. Your place is my new favorite.
