Pls. help me finalize our trip to Mystic

A family trip to Mystic this weekend. We're arriving Friday afternoon and leaving Sunday afternoon in time to have pizza in New Haven for dinner on our way back to NY.

Dinner one night will be Rice Spice Noodles. For the other night, we'd like a traditional New England seafood place. Nothing fancy. One twist is that our 5 yr old chowpup is currently refusing to eat fish, seafood, hot dogs, hamburgers, pb&j or grilled cheese. (sheesh! this kid!) Grilled chicken is very big right now. So, Abbott's doesn't work, since there's nothing to feed the child. I think Costello's has the same problem and, in any case, I don't want to be limited to fried food. Ideally, the menu would have steamers, fried clams, steamed lobster, lobster roll, chowder, some other fish/seafood and, of course, the damn chicken. Not that 2 of us are going to eat all those things for dinner, but you never know who'll be in the mood for what. S&P Oyster House basically seems to work. Sea Swirl comes pretty close. How are those? Anything better to suggest not too far from Mystic?

I know everyone raves about Kitchen Little for breakfast. Just how long is the wait on a nice June weekend morning? And the eggs seem to get all the attention. How are things like pancakes or waffles?

Any place good for ice cream in Mystic?

Lunch we'll figure out, depending on activities, but I'm keeping Mystic Market in mind.

I'm leaning towards Modern Apizza in NH for dinner on Sunday, but does anyone have any fresh words of wisdom on what I assume is the eternal Pepe's/Sally's/Modern debate?
