Ancient Mariner - Mystic, CT

Has anybody been to the newest Mystic restaurant? I haven't heard anything about it yet, which probably isn't a good thing. I thought it was owned by the same people who own AJ's, but I could be wrong. In a town saturated with contrived seafood-by-the-water restaurants, I'm hoping this place is a little more unique.

  1. I have not been but I did hear it was owned by AJ, I also heard it was a less expensive, more casual restaurant than AJ. I did go to the new Bleu restaurant in the village near the aquarium, it was wonderful!! Just a place for lunch but great.

    1. re: Alica

      Yeah, a nice selection of cheeses too -- not like Mystic Market, but several that I haven't seen elsewhere.

    2. We went when they first opened as party of 8 - service was good but food was mediocre. Maybe they are aiming at the aimless visitors walking down West Main Street, thinking 'is there all there is to Mystic?' Do love Anthony J's tho.
