The ambience was great! We sat in the bar area. Very quaint and quiet. Took a little longer than normal to be greeted and ordered drinks. Ordered a beer and a glass of wine. My SO’s beer glass had lipstick on it 😮. Bread was brought out and was unusually sour for some reason. I ordered Calamari as my meal and my SO ordered fish and chips and we ordered an extra side of hush puppies. Food came out rather quickly. Fish was good, a little greasy. Calamari was very dry and rubbery, however the sauce was flavorful.. Hush puppies were amazing!! Overall we were very dissatisfied with our visit.

The appetizer was excellent. The main dish was too salty. I notified the waiter and spoke with management. They offered to prepare another dish; however, that would mean that I couldn’t eat with my company. I ended up eating the mashed potatoes and asparagus and was charged the full price of the meal, $35. Unacceptable. I will never return.

Great food and fast service. We played it smart and went the day before New Year's Eve. There were some diners but not a crowd. The food was outstanding as it has been every time we go there. Great place to dine.

Reserved a Christmas Dinner here. Unfortunately I don’t think they were prepared for an overwhelming amount of carry out orders that evening because our server announced they were out of Crab legs, wedge salad and a couple others things right off the bat which didn’t make the experience as enjoyable.
It wasn’t crowded in the dining area since they were 50% capacity with reservation but our server seemed anxious.
Tried getting a drink at the bar but was ignored too.
Next year will make dinner at home.

We were there for a Christmas dinner. In a private room with a beautiful fireplace setting. However another family came into the same room much louder. The food was acceptable but not over the top. I was a bit disappointed in the wait staff

The restaurant had a foul smell that night. I’m guessing that there was a sewage backup. Never experienced that before at this restaurant. Usually all 5 stars, but not that night.

We order Calamari whenever a restaurant has it on their menu. I enjoyed the fact that the sauce here was not creamy as you don't need extra fat upon fat with the breading. It was a treat and also enjoyed the veggies served with it. There were only a few green beans and peppers but eating it all in one bite (calamari, a small piece of veg & the sauce) was very tasty!

My husband got the Cedar Planked Salmon and this dish was perfection. I definitely had order envy.

I got the Open Blue Cobia which I had never had before, but was excited to try. I told them to prepare it the way the Chef recommended. It came out grilled and slightly overcooked. Not sure if it was because I had the tail end piece or not, but I was disappointed with this dish. Not enough flavor in the seasonings, had to ask for salt and pepper but even then it lacked "something". My biggest beef and the reason for a 4 star on food is the vegetables served with the fish were not cooked through. I do not know anyone that likes hard green beans and broccoli. It's unfortunate because the carrots had great flavor but those were shredded and not many on the plate as the other uncooked veggies overpowered them.

Both our dishes came with smashed redskins which were great!

Never had a bad experience or food at Mitchell’s, and this lunch was no exception. Outdoor dining was comfortable with an overhead awning and heaters. All of our meals were fabulous, and our server was attentive and gracious. Five stars!!

Haven't been out to dinner with my spouse for a long time. This was perfect. It was socially distanced, so reasonably quiet for a restaurant. The service was excellent as was the food. We'll be back, thanks.

We were celebrating my wife’s birthday.
We ordered our food a good 30 min. before the people next to us. They were finished with their food before we even got our food.
We ordered the Chilean Sea bass. When we got our food and went to eat the first bite the fish was frozen!
How does fresh fish flown in daily cone to the table frozen?
To many other places in town with better food and service for the same money.

Maybe the most disgusting meal I’ve ever had. They messed up my mojito...twice. I gave up and ordered a sweet tea...which tasted like a dirty sock. Bacon wrapped BBQ shrimp was soggy and didn’t taste at all like BBQ. The sour dough bread was literally so sour it was inedible. I had the Caesar plank salmon which was very overwhelmingly acidic except for the mashed potatoes, which had no seasoning whatsoever. The waitress wasn’t knowledgeable and wore her mask down below her nose. First and last experience. I’ll never go back.

Prices have increased dramatically. We sat for 1.5 hours before being served while takeout orders took precedence. This has been one of my favorite restaurants in town. It was a vey disappointing experience.
