“Good Local Seafood Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Had a teriffic lunch here-it was recommended as a favorite local restaurant. It's right on the water adjacent to an active marina with sail boats etc. The server advised to order the lobster roll with a side salad rather than the lobster salad and it was delicious and a good portion.

“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

We're never disappointed with a visit to the Dog Watch! We even got to play a few rounds of Corn Hole on the deck before being called for our table (about 20 minutes on a Thursday night)....fun! Service is great, although it can sometimes be a little loud in the hallway/dining area. One of our favorites in the Boro! :)

Visiting from Arizona, sister said she had a restaurant she wanted to take us to. The food was great and the service was out of this world. Enjoyed it so much we are planning on going back on New Years eve.
