    Visiting from out of state and stumbled on this fine establishment! Seafood was fresh and well prepared! Had a delightful conversation with the owner, John. Next time we are in town we will make it point to eat here again!!

    Service was great!! Server was attentive and knew the menu. Food was great and came out quickly. Manager on the floor stopped by the table to check on us and also let us know about some up coming events. Would recommend going around sunset with all the large windows, im sure the view is gorgeous. My 12yr old son got the lobster roll and it had so much meat on it he could barely finish it. My husband was excited for the whole belly, as they are hard to find in western mass. Awesome place for a great dinner.

    It was not busy when we were there. I had the Maine whole belly clams. Fresh and tasty. My friend had the short ribs. Meaty and substantial. He asked for one wedge salad to split with his wife and it came out in two bowls ready to eat. The girls had Firecracker Salmon (very tasty and not too spicy) and a penne with mussels and shrimp in garlic wine sauce (to die for). A very pleasant atmosphere with a window seat overlooking Palmer’s Cove. The server was helpful and friendly. We will definitely return.

    Way too noisy - there was a holiday party with a band that was marginal and LOUD. The manager seemed unwilling to ask them to tone it down in deference to the party goers while not being particularly interested in those who came to dinner to have a nice conversation with each other over dinner - advice - go to The Fisherman in the summer and sit outside.

    We were staying in Madison and decided to take a drive to Mystic and found this little gem. The food was AMAZING, the staff so kind and the view of the water, was just what we were looking for. My husband and I are still talking about how good the food was. Thank you!!

    Food was pretty bad. Short ribs had zero flavor, and I’m pretty sure the mashed potatoes were packaged in some way. It was as if the ribs were just tossed into a pan with some stock and chucked it to the oven. The space is pretty, but not well kept. Server was incredibly friendly and prompt. It really is a shame the food was so bad. It was like bad hotel food if that makes sense. Chef should really have more pride in his work. Pasta also was chucked onto a plate in a heap. Wouldn’t recommend at all.

    I met a friend for lunch on a quiet off-season day. Though I had to wait a while for anyone to notice I was there, the service from then on was very good. We had a window table overlooking the water, which was a real treat. The food was all good, but mostly a little overcooked. Overall, it was a pleasure to be there, and I plan to return.

    Great restaurant with a spectacular view of the water. The food and menu choices are excellent. We had the Faroe Island Salmon with rice and the beer battered shrimp with hand cut fries, both of which were expertly prepared and served. Our server, Dora, was great and very attentive. Also, the caramel crème brûlée was a way to end the night.

    Herman took wonderful care of us! We have dined there many times and have loved the food. This time however, we we disappointed. My husband loves the clam chowder but complained that this time the clams were diced so small he could hardly tell they were there. I ordered the swordfish special. The candied walnuts on top were burnt and oil was drizzled all over the pureed squash. The combination of the sr and oil was not pleasant. The key lime pie is superb. My husband complained there was not enough raspberry flavor in the the chocolate raspberry dessert he ordered. This one bad experience will not prevent us from dining there again. Herman’s service saved the day!!

    A fine restaurant on the water. There were four of us and we all had the lobster roll. Well presented and good value knowing how expensive lobsters are these days. Perhaps it was a mistake to have a dessert from a calorie point of view. I had the raspberry chocolate cake with chocolate ice cream. Absolutely delicious!
