The oysters on the half shell were excellent as always, the glass of wine very good and the bread terrific. A main course of monk fish was so-so and a pasta appetizer was too weighted down with ingredients.

We were here for Easter Dinner which explained the noise level as there were many families with children. The menu was not extensive but the food was excellent. The service was friendly, prompt and efficient. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming. We would definitely return when we are in Mystic.

Though it took a little while to get service initially, the bartender who took care of us on Easter was great, friendly, and helpful. The food was delicious, and the restaurant is just beautiful. Had a great time and hope to be back for future holiday brunches!

At first glance the menu is especially perfect for foodies. However the food is so perfectly made it is as if you are eating the most flavorful comfort food you could possible ask for. They just take everything up a notch. We were there for brunch and had their manmosa, mimosa, and a classic bloody mary, all were perfect. Then we had tried the eggs benedict, and french toast, both made to perfection.

One of, if not the, best restaurant I have been to. From the beautiful rustic decor to the simple yet elegant dishes, this restaurant exemplifies New England in every one of it's dishes. Each plate uses only the freshest and highest quality ingredients and they are perfectly cooked. Every dish reminded me of growing up in coastal New England having clam-bakes and filleting and cooking freshly caught fish. While it is fine dining, the food and atmosphere is anything but pretentious or "chefy" and it's about as humble as you can possibly get. If you want the best of what Coastal Southern New England has to offer, this is THE place to go.

DIVINE! The owner and staff go out of their way to be sure that diners have the best experience, the most exquisitely prepared food, and unmatched service. I am a foodie, a wine snob and travel the world, thus only a few restaurants receive my highest recommendations. This one is just one of the few.

First time to this restaurant, which we visited before a show in New London. Looks are deceiving. Outside looks like a nice sandwich shop. Interior looks like a local comfort food place. But the food was quite good. We each had one of their craft cocktails, which was both tasty and not overly large, like some places. The farm-to-table menu was eclectic and authentic. We don't live nearby, but it was worth the drive even if we had not been going to the show.

Our staff was worth noting. Quite knowledegable about the local farmers efforts to recreate breeds from years gone by and base the menus on those foods versus more commonly commercially sourced food.

We've visited the Oyster Club several times and find the cuisine creative, eclectic, and well-executed. The service is professional and friendly. Our waitress for this visit was particularly helpful to us in choosing a bottle of wine. And, as always, our meals were expertly prepared. This restaurant should definitely be on the list of those who appreciate creative, high-quality cooking.

One caution. The Oyster Club is a very popular spot in Mystic, CT and can get very busy on weekends and during tourist season. We strongly recommend making a reservation, and on busy nights you might still find you have to wait for your table.

This is a truly astonishing restaurant. We were here for the oyster/pig dinner...the creativity, flavor and presentation (not to mention the wine pairings) were inspired. As were we. I almost hate writing such a good review as it will only make it harder to get reservations in the future!!! 👍👍👍

Had an amazing anniversary dinner at Oyster Club! The service was impeccable - our waiter patiently answered my questions about the menu and gave great recommendations for wine pairings. The menu is small, but everything on there is fantastic. The mussels in the coconut broth are so delicious and you get a huge portion of mussels for the price. All of the food is fresh and perfectly prepared. The wine and cocktail list is really great and complements the food well. The dining room is a bit dark but cozy, not too crowded. Overall I really loved it and would definitely return for lunch or another special occasion!
