Vegan food with a view

Food is always delish
With water views inside or dining outside. If you are with vegan gluten free or Reg diets you are covered here.

Nice vegan menu (and dessert)

5 entree options for vegans. All looked great. I had the polenta with vegetables and loved it.

Also noticed that the regular menu had a vegan chocolate mousse, but didn’t have it. Nice to have the option.

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Nice outside seating along the water

Not a family friendly environment!

As a long time customer when visiting the area (we have family here) this is the first time back with our baby (16 months). When we went to go have dinner we were told that they do not have high chairs nor booster seats. And we were not allowed to bring in our (extremely compact) stroller. So our child, who eats a full meal, would have no place to sit while dining. Unfortunately this will be the last time we ever go to and our local friends and family won’t be either. We just thought others should know that this is not a family friendly establishment.

Lovely fancy vegan food

Has separate vegan menu. I got the veggie tacos & they were very well crafted. I plan on coming back to try more of the vegan menu. Lots of windows so almost every table has a amazing view of the mystic River! I recommend upstairs seating for the best view.

Pros: Absolutely stunning views of Mystic River , Polite & kind staff , Well priced vegan food

Great find! Large separate vegan menu, delicious vegan food with water view.

Super substantial separate vegan menu. I got the wild mushroom bolognese, my fiancé got the vegetable polenta and the roasted butternut squash. It was so delicious, all while looking at a beautiful view of the water.
We found this place after a big disappointment at Mystic Pizza, they do not have vegan pizza nor cheese, so glad we decided to not “make do “with french fries at Mystic but explored further.
And her bill only ended up being like $79 for three people, with one martini and extra side dishes.

Vegan menu w/ a vegan dessert that wasn’t sorbet!

Loved the separate vegan menu with some inventive dishes. I had the rocket salad followed by the polenta. The vegan dessert is a smooth, creamy chocolate mousse lined with fresh strawberries. Decadent and delish!

Pros: Separate vegan menu, A decadent vegan dessert , Great ambience

Delicious Vegan Choices

Love the fact they have a whole menu dedicated to vegans. Tried the dish everyone was raving about and it was delicious. The polenta reminded me of grits and it was sweet just like I like my grits. The seasoned vegetables were so delicious which made it savory and sweet.
Next is the pasta I will taste it yums

Pros: Good vegan options, Everything was delicious

Cons: No protein added to the dishes

How to act like a Mystic tourist, if only for one day

The newspaper local to SE CT, The Day, ran a January 2019 article not about the restaurant in general, but specifically about its newly initiated vegan menu. Living 15 miles away, I duly put this fancy eatery on my list of 1001 restaurants to visit before I die. Yet, view its sparse Vegan sub-menu online, and you’ll see that aside from the 2 salads there are only 6 dishes, 3 sides, and 1 dessert. That’s hardly more than you’d expect to find at any other restaurant that does not build up such high expectations. Hey, Oyster Guys, at first I decided that I likely would die with this clam shack still on my to-do list.

Not until April of 2022 did a non-vegan friend and I decide that it was time to die, or I mean, time to check out that Vegan sub-menu. We arrived at 2pm on a weekday during non-tourist season and innocently expected to be seated. Instead we were politely informed that without advance reservations our wait to be seated would take up to half an hour. Non-resolute, we decided to sit that one out, and instead ate on the cheap at Karma Kitchen just down the block.

Four months later, during the summer when downtown Mystic descends into one eternal traffic jam, a vegan friend and I were more resolute. We made advance reservations, again for 2pm on a weekday, intending afterwards to see a film at the quaint Mystic Cinema. Whereas a line of hungry people lacking reservations again was waiting outside the restaurant, we were immediately and very efficiently ushered in by the alert and attentive waitstaff. So if you plan to eat here, be sure to make reservations!

And be sure to wait for when the weather allows for seating on the outdoor patio surrounded by an array of flowering plants abuzz with hummingbirds and sparrows. And from the patio, you can view the tourists parading along the drawbridge, walking faster afoot than the car traffic jam inching alongside them. And did I say that there’s a vegan menu to be had here? The food is unique even for vegan cuisine, it meets my own high nutritional standards (no fried foods here and no mock meats here, mock foods that make a mockery of veganism), tastes good, and is elegantly presented. But don’t dine here just for the food. Dine here also for the tourist-mecca Mystic experience, and for the satisfaction of knowing that the reality of veganism has infiltrated even the upper echelons of high society.

Pros: Its whole-foods vegan sub-menu, The attentive and informative waitstaff, The flower gardens on the patio and outside

Cons: Location in traffic-clogged tourist-mecca Mystic

Pleasant surprise!

I could not believe a place like this has a completely separate vegan menu! The food was delicious, they had a great selection of beer, and the dining room views and ambience were perfect.

Pros: Separate vegan menu

Delicious!

Has a separate vegan menu that relies heavily on grilled or sautéed veggies as the bulk of the plates. I had the Sautéed Veggies on Jasmine rice and the Black Bean & Corn Salsa. Both were absolutely delicious, even though they were quite simple. S&P Oyster Bar has a clean atmosphere with a beautiful view of the river and drawbridge with an equally as beautiful patio/garden space. A great spot for lunch or an evening dinner

Great vegan menu

Although not a vegan restaurant, they have put together a very nice vegan menu supplement with great tasting sides and entrees. I visit them regularly.

A very welcome addition to downtown Mystic!

S&P has always been accommodating to vegans but has recently added a vegan menu which offers a number of vegan dishes including a delicious polenta and an incredible Tri Colored Quinoa Farro and vegetable bowl. The ambiance is stunning on the Mystic River and I heard the chef is even working on a vegan dessert option! Love Love Love!!!

Pros: Excellent wait staff , Divine views and ambiance, Amazing vegan food
