Fresh Air and Great Food in Mystic

Warm weather in New England is so fleeting that maximizing it includes meals. Mystic has oodles of places to enjoy fresh air dining. Patios, tents, raised decks, and picnic tables meet all of your outdoor dining needs. Are you looking for snacks and seafood, pizza and sushi, burgers and salads, pastry and pasta, steaks and appetizers, or ice cream and smoothies? Some have water views and accommodate special diets. Many have both adult beverages and kid-friendly menu options so there’s something for everyone. Fun lives here but you’re welcome to visit.
