Lunch in Mystic?

I'm heading to Mystic for lunch today. Any suggestions? We like to sit at the bar and have a good Bloody Mary with lunch.

  1. You could try a place called Jamms on the hill overlooking the village. There is a place in the village called the Steak Loft. Also there is a nice bar with dinning at the Seaport, Hope this helps..Earle

      I think the food at Jamm's and Steak Loft are just average although they both do have bars. If you're referring to Seaman's Inne at the Seaport, I totally disagree. I was there a few weeks ago and thought it was one of the worst restaurants on the shore. My wife had a caesar salad with chicken that was tasteless. I had a very bland fisherman's stew. The waiter told us the chef had left and that the kitchen was closed. Apparently, they just heated my food in a microwave. When asked about desserts, he said they were all made by Sarah Lee. We will not be back.

    2. On a rainy fall day like today I would tuck myself into the bar at the Daniel Packer Inne...

        ahh aareri--a person after my own heart! Rainy days and bars just go together don't they?

        1. You're probably on the road by now but I'd head to S&P Oyster on the river. Gorgeous inside, nice bar, and despite how touristy the location is I've had very good meals the 2-3 times I've been.

            Agree about S&P Oyster. At some point we are all "tourists", and when we visited Mystic, S&P was great. Even places that cater to tourist must survive off season and take care of locals. My guess is that S&P handles that role pretty well.
