This is our "go to" place for special occasions. Our service was great, attentive without being intrusive. Meal was delicious as we always seem to get.

We were there for our 25th anniversary, and we’re not disappointed. The portions were not overwhelming but were a reasonable size. They are pricey in the evening, but the Early Bird is a good value. Since this was a special occasion we decided to go all the way with the later dinner. We had a better selection then, and our food was delicious. Their Fish Chowder is outstanding.

The place for amazing seafood. The dishes prepared here are fabulous. Everything has its own unique flavors. The Chilean sea bass never disappoints. They also have paella, rack of lamb, steaks, oysters raw and baked. The food is artfully prepared and the pairings are wonderful.

This restaurant has continued to provide high-quality food for many years. This visit was no exception. The crab-crusted black grouper was outstanding, as was the seared shrimp and scallops. The salad was just right. Bravo!

Our server was terribly rude, like we were inconveniencing her. I was with my family and my 88 year old grandmother who had a few questions and was given quick and sharp answers. It was our first visit and unfortunately probably our last. A shame because food was pretty good.

My dinner was very good. My wife got the cod which was over cooked and tough. We know that Mystic Fish is a popular place and generally very busy but the noise level makes it impossible to carry on a Normal conversation. Ou4 server was capable but not very friendly. Hostess staff always has an attitude.

Our experience was extremely enjoyable. If the seating, service, and food we experienced at our reserved booth for 2, were the same throughout the restaurant, they could charge twice as much for their wonderful food and service. Across the small room, however, it was noisy, dark, and crammed. Time was 5 pm on a February weeknight. I wish this restaurant were in my town!

This was my fourth visit but a first for my brother & his friend. It was every bit as enjoyable as my first 3 visits. I love Mystic Fish so much that whenever any of my friends from Michigan come to visit I'm going to take them there. The prices are very reasonable & everything I've tried in all 4 visits has been excellent. I'm so glad my sister took me there to celebrate my birthday because I might not have known about it otherwise.

Mystic Fish is consistently good ... from Richard at the front door greeting guests, to the servers
who remember you like extra anchovies on your Caesar salad, to the quality of the ingredients in the innovative dishes, to the inviting presentation of the food in general ... the ambience is welcoming, there is a feeling of hospitality and because of all of these factors, Mystic Fish is our local favorite!

Mystic Fish never fails to please. An oasis in a desert of mediocre dining experiences. The food is always creative and interesting, the service is attentive without being overbearing and the atmosphere is busy without without being intrusive. Long may it stay in business.

I was very excited to try Mytic Fish but for the ammount of money my table spent, I left feeling like it wasn’t worth it. The inside is very well decorated and the fish tanks are beautiful. I however did enjoy the drinks I selected to get. I more than likely will not return.

Did not realize it, but we were able to take advantage of the early bird specials! There was a lot to pick from on that menu! I had the Maine lobster and hubby had the salmon with dill pesto. Both were excellent. Just enough food for us as we are not big eaters anyway! Loved the white tsunami martinis too! Great place! Great food and great service!

Saturday night and it was crowded, so it took longer than usual to get seated even though we had reservations. But the food was worth the wait. We're sort of regulars and have never been disappointed.
