The Galley Restaurant: The Galley Restaurant
The Galley Restaurant is the cafeteria style restaurant located inside Mystic Seaport. They had a nice selection of the usual items you can find in these types of restaurants like burgers, fries, pizza, hot dogs, chicken tenders, shrimp, fish and a variety of other items.
Ferni and I were a bit hungry and decided to grab a quick bite. Ferni ordered the chicken tenders with fries, I had the fish and chips.
The food was quite good for what this place is. The fish and the chicken were better than your usual fast food place but the fries were so, so good!!
We enjoyed our meal here, but next time we'll just get the fries and pack our lunch with us, the prices are a bit high :(
Favorite Dish: Ferni had the chicken tenders and fries, I ordered the fish and chips.

Schaefer's Spouter Tavern: Indoors or from a Kiosk
We did not eat while we were here, but the main regular place to eat seems to be Schaefer's Spouter Tavern is open weekdays 11 a.m. - 4 p.m., weekends until 5 p.m.
The flavor of a 19th-century seafaring village is delectably preserved at Schaefer's Spouter Tavern, with noontime meals that include authentic soups, stews, sandwiches and desserts. You can even find a beer at an old-time price - just 5 cents for a mini-glass. The tavern is open during the warm weather months.
Named for the tavern in Melville's Moby-Dick, Schaefer's Spouter Tavern is a re-created exhibit, built by the Museum in 1956. However, the woodwork in its main room, including doors, windows, floor, wainscoting, bar, benches and fireplace, comes from the Central House Inne in Stoddard, New Hampshire, built in 1833. The hideaway bed in the corner was for a hired barman, who slept there to admit late travelers, and also to keep an eye on the supplies.
Also there is the Seamen's Inne Restaurant & Pub, The Galley and various outside kiosks and carts selling food.

Seamen's Inne: Elegant Waterview Dining
Seamen's Inne is an elegant seafood restaurant with beautiful views of the Mystic River from it's main dining room. It is located just down the street from Mystic Seaport and is a great place to eat after spending the day walking around the museum. Even just going there to sit and have a glass of wine is really nice.
Favorite Dish: It's hard for really fresh seafood to be bad no matter where you get it from and here everything is very fresh and very good. Personally I love oysters and always get them here because I know that they are of really good quality, but everything else that I've had has been great, too.
