Everyone was very friendly. Because of our reservations we were seated right away at a lovely spot by the window. Our drinks were perfect. Great cocktail menu. Our meals were wonderful. Thoroughly enjoyed the Bouillabaise. Our Irish coffees made a perfect ending to our meal.

Dog Watch Cafe's menu is a nifty selection of comfort food, bar food, appetizers and entrees; seafood, beef and chicken. Reasonably priced in a comfy, on-the-water location, with friendly and accommodating waitstaff. I've had a variety of food there and have not been disappointed. Try the tuna tartare. It is not a big deal for me, but now and then the bar area (which also has tables) can get a bit loud at times during peak hours. It's just those wild and crazy Stonington residents having a good time.
Highly recommended.

It was so loud in the restaurant we were unable to have a conversation with anyone but the person immediately next to us. I struggled to hear the person across the table from me often asking him to repeat what he had said. To try to talk to the person diagonally across from me was impossible, and it was a small table!

I’m fairly certain every piece of food was taken from a freezer bag and heated by grill or dyer and then given out. I did ask for a medium rare burger but the entire thing was raw and bloody and I couldn’t eat it. There were really crowded and we just felt like we had to get in and leave. Huge disappointment. Would not recommend.

Good food. It was a full house, but we did not have to wait too long for service. Drinks from the bar were very good. Overall, not gourmet but certainly very good and well prepared.

We were initially placed at a high top table in the over flow area which is dark. I pointed out that I had a reservation and asked about a table by the window. I was told that I could tale the table or leave. Given that we had limited time, we decided to stay. A short time later, we were given the option of moving to a table by a window. Which we accepted. From then on, the meal was as I expected. Our waitress was wonderful. The food was great.

We love Dog Watch!
It is it almost an hour and a half ride one way for us to get there but it is worth it for setting the food the location just everything is nice about it we truly enjoy it. There is always a wait but that’s what you get for good quality food and service and ambience!!
