    This place has been around since before the revolution and it has the best french onion soup I've ever had.

    Visited on a Friday evening with my Son around 6.30pm. Had to wait for a table which is apparently normal as the bar meals are popular. The beers are pretty good, as was the bar service. Menu was fine with a varied choice to suit most palates. My son chose the stuffed portobello mushroom, however the portion size had halved to just one ( normally two are served!). I had the chilli with tacos which was good. Our mains eventually arrived 45 minutes after finishing the first course, along with profuse apologies from our server. Both dishes were OK, nothing above average. In fairness our bill had a round of drinks deducted by way of an apology for the poor service. Finally, I would have appreciated a little more luminescence in the restaurant as it was akin to dining in a coal mine at times !

    On our way to the Cape this is somewhere we decied to stop for drinks , it is an old sailing captains house that has been restored. We were not there for long only time to have a coke and a coffee but it had a good atmosphere and the service was friendly.

    Ate lunch down stairs at a table with a view of docked boats on Mystic river. Cool bar/eating area but the food was over priced and had no taste. Later that night felt sick to my stomach. Heard they got got a new chef recently maybe they should keep looking for another one.

    The food was wonderful and the staff was great. Very accommodating and the atmosphere was charming. Would recommend this to people who want a nice dinner in a quaint setting where you can actually talk to who you are with because it wasn't noisy. A welcome change for a restaurant!

    We dined on a Saturday night here. We had tried to get reservations elsewhere not realizing this was a key weekend for the area. Even though we had a very late dinner I am so glad we ended up at this establishment. The menu selection was a delight of local cuisine with a lot of variety. Well prepared and so excellent. They also had a well stocked bar which was great for my Scotch enthusiast hubby and I was finally able to enjoy a glass of Moscato. In addition to outstanding food we enjoyed great service. What started out as a very hectic evening was turned into a blissful repast thanks to a thoughtful and professional staff. Even though we had 9 p.m. reservations and they closed at 10, never once did they hurry us or make us feel rushed. I would not only recommend this fine establishment, I would eat there again even if just passing thru.

    Not impressed at all with food or service...we live in Mystic and had a gift certificate to use....went at 3 PM for lunch.The bar was not packed but the service was very slow.Ordered 2 beers and didn't even get a glass to drink them out of.I ordered vegetable lasagna and my husband ordered lobster mac and food was very bland...not even a small salad or a piece of bread to go with the husband said his lobster was overcooked and very tough. Two hours after eating I was very sick and an hour later my husband was very sick...we both lost the meals we had eaten...not a good experience....

    We stopped here to eat because it was pouring rain and the main drag in Mystic was jammed packed with no parking. We thought parking in the Inne's lot and running in for lunch with our 2 young kids was the best bet. Glad we came here. They have a old stone pub downstairs with a bar and decent amount of tables. I like that it felt like an old pub in a seaport town. It had a nice vibe. The server was polite and moderately attentive. Nothing special but nothing stood out as sub-par with the service. The menu for lunch is great. They have wide variety of plates that fall outside the typical sandwiches and basic salads. My husband's lobster roll was great. Lots of lobster meat without unnecessary dressing and fillings. They have a wide variety of tasty cocktails and drinks. We got there right before noon but by 12:30 it was jammed packed on a Friday. All in all a great place to stop for a bite.

    We were very disappointed in the food. I had the fish and chips and found the fish to be under cooked and almost slimmy. I found it be be uneatable. My Wife had the lobster roll and also left most of that on the plate. Half of the tables were empty and the service was still slow. She never did ask us about our food so we paid our check and left. We would not recommend.

    We sat there and the place has really nice atmosphere but the food wasn’t as good as expected. The steak was simply bad quality meat. Service was slack, not a keeper.

    Stopped in here twice during our time in Mystic . We were with another couple who love the place and suggested we try it out. Drinks, food and atmosphere was very nice. Would go back again on our next visit to Mystic.

    Had planned to eat at the downstairs pub but when we arrived the place was crowded with a half hour wait for a table. Decided to try the upstairs dining room which worked out well. My wife had the grilled Faroe Island salmon with rice which was excellent. I started with a half dozen oysters which were also excellent followed by the appetizer order of mussels which were enough for 2 people and were delicious. The inn goes back to colonial days and is an interesting place to dine. Can't see why this is not #1 in town. Would definitely eat here again.

    I went to the Daniel Packer Inn last week with my family for lunch. It was a slow day there- just a few tables with people at it. We have a small child and quick service is always appreciated. It was anything but quick. It took FOREVER to get our food. Close to TWO hours. Even the chowder took forever. How can that take an hour? The place was basically empty. No apologies. I asked for some crackers or bread for our toddler and still never got that. Nachos only had a handful of chips and the chili was actually on the bottom. My wife's salmon was burnt. They somehow serve salad entrees on plates and not bowls. Who does that? The fries were soggy. Need I go on? How about no ice in the drinks... very disappointing as people had recommended it as well.

    Basement pub, rather noisy. Great bartender, very personable, good food, good beer. interesting selection of single malts. A bit pricey for pub faire.

    Our first night at the Brigadoon of Mystic B&B, we were in search of a good meal. When our hosts suggested the Daniel Packer Inn, we took their advice and were so glad we did! My wife had a filet mignon that was butter-tender and delicious (I had to steal a piece - you know, for quality control purposes) while I feasted on seafood-stuffed shrimp. 4 huge shrimp, cooked perfectly with a savory stuffing! Hog heaven!

    My hubby surprised me for my birthday by taking me here. I was very pleased with the atmosphere and the food. We ate downstairs in the pub which was very cozy.The menu had a great variety of items: We started with the DPI New England Clam chowder, which was very creamy and delicious. I got the peppercorn encrusted steak with mashed potatoes and sauteed chard and hubby had a Hunters Harvest which is like a Shepard's pie which consisted of a mixture of duck, boar sausage, bison and corn, covered with sweet potato. Both items were delicious. I definitely would return to this restaurant to try other menu items, even though it is a bit pricey.

    We wanted to give this restaurant another chance since it was always one of our cozy and tasty choices. Sadly, no longer. We invited our boating friends for an end of the season luncheon. We were miserable as were another couple at a table next to us. Why? Not only were the entrees cold, the restaurant was absolutely freezing! This may sound petty, but our lunch was ruined. We commiserated, while shivering, with the table next to us eating cold, mediocre food. I chose their special which was a slice of prime rib and mashed potatoes, usually my comfort food. The potatoes were lumpy, cold. Also, my husband's choice, the calamari, was apparently a big challenge, no panache like days of old. We're going back to R36 which never fails to deliver. A piece of advice, when two tables complain about freezing, don't brush the customers off telling us the bartending area likes it cold, really?!

    The place was very nice. There is a large bar downstairs if you must wait for a table. Food was good a little pricy for potion. Would recommend reservation.

    I have good news and bad news about The Captain Daniel Parker Inne: The good news is a great menu--lot's of variety in every category and upscale descriptions which lead on to believe these chefs are a cut above. That brings us to the bad news. The chefs are, indeed, talented, the taste of our food was good, but upon further probing, both our calamari and its accompanying roasted garlic cream sauce are made with canola oil. So sad. Now I can never eat here, because I can't trust they understand what is healthful and what is not. We shared the calamari, and my friend and I each got a soup--me the delicious onion, but it skimped on the cheesy goodness it should have had, and she the soup of the day, pepper pot, which was also good, but extra salty, so she couldn't enjoy it quite as much as she had hoped. So all in all, if they ditch canola, reduce salt, and continue with the wonderful menu, we will be patrons. If not--um sorry. Y'all need to research canola and see why you don't want to ever ingest, even though the lobbyists have succeeded in persuading our government to reccomend Canadian oil with all of its bad processing, hydrogenation, and chemicals. This is one of the worst oils out there, and bad enough to warrant me ranting even in this charming old Inne, where we had hoped to be regulars. A simple oil change will rectify this. I will wait for them to let me know.
