Any recommendations for lunch in/near Mystic? Good quality food trumps type & price. Thanks!

    Bravo Bravo and Azu are good choices in Mystic. Stonington has the Water Street Cafe, Dog Watch Cafe and Noah's.

      From our last visit, in order of preference: Oyster Club, S&P, Voodoo Grill

        I second the Oyster Club. They opened a casual outdoor terrace dining area above and behind the restaurant called the Treehouse that's literally in the trees.

        I thought they were open for lunch most days, but their website disagrees (Friday & Saturday only), but that may be for the restaurant only. I'd call first to be sure.

        They feature classic American grilled fare with a Southern bent in a casual, outdoor setting. You can view the river from many tables, and there's always a breeze.

        My top choice in Mystic would be Azu.

          I enjoy Azus. Also I had a surprisingly good fairly inexpensive meal at a place I read about on these boards called Seahorse Tavern in Noank which is about 3 miles south. Never ever would have found or considered it if not read on these boards. But if in Mystic I like Azus and S&P and if you want pizza I think Pizzettas is fine. In Stonington I've been to Dog Watch and found it fine as well.

          BUT quick question... I noticed Mike you put Voodoo Grille. Last week we were gonna go but I got chased away by some mixed reviews on the internet. How is it? I was worried it was more of a place to grab a drink and maybe an appetizer instead of a meal but I could be reading into it.

            We had jambalaya and quesadillas both of which were good. Pleasant patio out back, good service. Our second time there.

            I would choose the "Pita Pocket", in Mystic. Great food, check it out!

              That's "Pita Spot", one of my favorite restaurants in the region. It's rated #1 on Trip Advisor for good reason.

              NY Times just gave Daniel Packer Inn rave reviews. Nice place, good food, sort of like an English pub.

                I just looked at the VooDoo grill menu. Have never thought about going there! A few questions, I am not a big fan of spicy hot food, would you say it is spicy flavorful or spicy hot. What is the crawfish like? Thanks! Always like to try something new.

                  For New England, it was probably in the range of moderately spicy hot but you could always ask if they can adjust it. I tend toward hotter food so it's a little hard for me to say. My wife said the crawfish was good. They had a few good beers and it was a fun comfortable place, not haute cuisine.
