  1. We stayed in Mystic but had our best dinner at Noah's on water st. in Stonington. Very nice, great seafood dishes, very nice ambiance for romantic night.
    Had a fabulous lunch at Water St. Cafe (few blocks from Noah's) - loved this place, very creative dishes, excellent oysters!!!

    Have a blast, we loved the area.

      Thanks for the tips. We are spending a night at the stonnington inn

        Very kewl, we stayed at the Inn at Mystic. I loved the town of Stonington better but we loved the Inn at Mystic. We really enjoyed that Seaport Museum (if your' into that).

        Agree. These are two excellent choices. Beautiful town. Enjoy.

          Always used to enjoy a breakfast at Noah's when we sailed in the area and would pick up a mooring in Stonington Harbor. But that was breakfast and that was then. Recently we found Noah's too towny and overpriced for the small servings - mind you I am still referring to breakfast. On the other hand I agree with the choice of the Water St Cafe - it was wonderful. Also on out list of places to eat and relax is Skipper's Dock (though we have not been in a few years).

          1. re: feelinpeckish

            Skipper's Dock = $$$$$$ and the food isn't on par with the price (not bad but not on par). However when the outside seating is open and its a beautiful sunny fall day it is worth the cash to have a drink and some apps - beautiful beautiful view.

            Water Street is excellent, as is Noah's and both are a two minute walk from where you are staying - Skipper's Dock is behind you.

            What does too "towny" mean? Too many locals?

        2. We like Water Street, great atmosphere and food. Noah's is just okay. Skipper's Dock is right at The Stonington Inn but the food is just okay. We love to go there in the summer and sit outside. The view is beautiful. We must not forget Boom which is down the street. We love to sit at the bar and watch sunset, it's a pretty restaurant and the food is good. There is Zack's also, I do not know much about it.
          If you go to Mystic, we love a restaurant called Rice, Spice & Noodles. Thai. BYOB.

          1. Thank you all for the wonderful recs!! We loved The inn at stonington. Very cute and rooms were very nice with gas fireplace and jacuzzi tub.
            We Really like water street cafe. It was a very local crowd. Guy playing guitar was nice . Local oyster were amazing!! Food was good. Service was polite but a little slow. We also ate at noahs. The oysters were realy good again. My wife thought the food was a bit better at noahs. Service was good but it wasn't that busy. We also had lunch at the skippers dock behind the stonnington inn. Really nice view on the water. We only had clams on the half shell which were served ice cold. My wife had the NE clam chowder. It was nice and smokey flavored but lacked clams and was a little watery. I had the lobster bisque, which was too buttery.
