Decided on a whim to head to Stonington Borough. We live in Watch Hill for the summers, it was nice weather, so why not? After eating at Dog Watch a few times and having a horrendous experience, we decided to try Skipper's Dock.
First the great- The location. Just wow. Granted it was sunny and 75, but the view from the deck was just outstanding.
The good- The food. Ordered oysters and a Tuna special for an appetizer. Both were outstanding. Then I had the grilled swordfish special for an entrée. Swordfish was ok. Nothing special. It was served with a Lobster Risotto, which wasn't cooked entirely. Oh well. I didn't starve. My spouse had the Lobster Roll. Overall he said it was good, but the top of the Lobster Salad was COVERED in Paprika. As was the coleslaw, which was plain.
The average- The service. We were there for over an hour for a lunch. Our server was sweet but she seemed very overwhelmed. It took over 20 minutes for our appetizers. She said it was because the kitchen had to shuck the oysters. I didn't realize it took that long....? The entrees came out much quicker though. Ordered a white wine that they were out of so chose another. Then we ordered a Red Stripe and we were brought a Red Stipe Lite.
Overall, we had a nice time and would certainly return. We didn't starve. We didn't leave thirsty. But the little things start to add up.
