We shared a delicious Flintstone Ribeye. The steak was excellent. The Caesar salad could have been more flavorful. The dressing tasted bland.

This was my second visit to the Engine Room, and while I would have preferred not to sit in the bar (because it's noisy) but the food and service were all wonderful.

I ate at Engine Room's sister restaurant, Oyster Club, a few weeks ago and loved it so much I knew I had to try here too -- and I was not disappointed! Delicious food, awesome service and great beer and drink options! My grass fed burger was fantastic and the fries and onion rings were among the best I've had. The salmon jerky was incredible. Will definitely be back!

Everything was great! the table was on the small side- it was a table for two. We liked that the water was served without us asking right when we sat down . Atmosphere was fantastic, service was great, very friendly and patient. We made a reservation so when we arrived we were seated right away. The beer and food were just right as well. Overall a great date night in a fun trendy place.

Upon walking in, the industrial/retro decor is well done.
Beer selection was just ok, most of which I could get in a better local liquor store. Quite an extensive spirits list though. Drink prices were fair for what you’d expect at a place like this.
I was really looking forward trying the pork burger but when I went to order the server told me they were out of it. I went with the regular grass fed bacon cheddar burger which was one of the better burgers I’ve had.
Overall a nice place to have an evening meal and I would go back next time I’m in the area.

The craft beer selection is rotated weekly, always interesting. Food is good and servers are friendly and helpful.

Great ambiance and wonderful service. One of the drinks we ordered was mostly water and not at all flavorful, but the rest were delicious. Some goes for the food: the mac & cheese really needed some salt but the rest of the food was great especially the chicken and waffles.

We were in Mystic for the weekend, and made a reservation for 8pm on a Sunday night. The reservation was a good idea - the place was packed. We were seated a bit after 8. Our waiter was fairly inattentive, but pleasant. The food was great. I would go back the next time we are there.

We're visiting from NH and wanted to find a laid-back place to have dinner. The food was quite good for a special menu.

Fabulous food and fabulous craft beer selection. We loved our burgers and fries - grass fed beef, great toppings and crispy, delicious French fries. Wait staff very attentive and knowledgable. We can't wait to return!
