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.

As always this restaurant does not disappoint. The evolving menu means never getting tired of what they offer, but some dishes you wish you could get again. The veal dish was one of those. Melt in your mouth braised veal with carrots and parsnips was heavenly. The crab cake starter was almost substantial enough to have for dinner. This is easily our favorite restaurant!

Wow!! What a meal. Oysters were delicious as well as the appetizers and Monk fish. We were visiting our son and wished we lived closer. But it was so good I might consider driving up from NJ for another great dinner. It would be worth the trip

Sunday brunch menu. Food was special, nothing was ordinary. While service was a bit slow, we were not in a hurry and enjoyed our relaxing meal. The employees (maybe manager as well) were extremely friendly and professional.

I had said on Open Table that it was our anniversary, and they greeted us with Champagne at the table. The meal was fantastic as usual, we had mussels (the broth was to die for), the tilefish and the most perfectly cooked steak! The service was fantastic (Heather rocks), the beer list and cocktails were spot on, and the menu was as fresh as can be. Restaurant got crowed ~6pm, and it can be a bit noisy in there, but the ambiance was great by the window for a cold/rainy Mystic night, and we had a fantastic dining experience. I usually have work meals here, but this was for a different occasion, but equally as enjoyable!

Oyster Club is our favorite restaurant in the area. Terrific service, new menu selections based on delicious local fresh food, and new deserts! We always enjoy our dinners here and often take our out of town guests (only if they deserve it!).

Special Nordic New Year’s Eve menu.
I didn’t care for the menu matches. Some of the food was over cooked (fish) and there where menu changes last minute (smoked White fish)

I found the menu to be very cliche and overused.

I was not impressed-

The oysters where good as always but overpriced and the did although have a great impressive wine list again over priced.

If I was to go again I would probably just stop for a quick cocktail not dinner.

Another excellent dinner at the Oyster Club. Russell was fabulous on service and recommendations. half price wine on Sunday night allowed extra special pairings. Fluke crudo and slow roasted pork were exceptional. Great dinner!

Excellent flavor combinations and superb drinks and bread made in-house. I recommend the muscles if they are on the menu since it changes week to week. We've dined here twice and both times the food was superb. The halibut was phenomenal. Our server the first time was lovely. The second time not so much but the food made up for the lack of attention from our server. Fortunately we were able to get the attention from other staff when we needed something. We will go again I'm certain.

Very pleasant atmosphere for dinner with friendly efficient staff and good food, and probably the best cuisine in the area. They have a new menu every day and as a result have a tendency to run out - this night ran out of John Dory and the sub not nearly as interesting. The pork terrine though not a terrine was very tasty but should have a selected toast or bread to go with it as the bread basket while very nice did not really suit the dish.

This mainly seafood place consistently offers delicious inventive dishes of fresh local ingredients. There is always a good selection of oysters, mainly local, and very good wine choices. I had a beautifully prepared John Dory served with great potatoes, and my husband had beef cheeks, juicy and tendered. A great place for dinner in the heart of Mystic

Best steak, hands down, I've ever had. Service was fantastic and went out of their way to accommodate a request for something that's usually on the menu but wasn't the night we came (and drove 45 minutes for). One of our favorites.

We had 7:45 reservations and we were seated promptly. Our waitress was attentive and very knowledgeable. My husband and I enjoyed our dinners very much. The menu is limited and so we would not be able to bring other family members or a larger group who may want a larger more traditional menu. We will definitely return.
