My wife and I really enjoyed the food, little necks and oysters outdoors on the deck overlooking the ocean with a micro brew beer, what could be better. The staff was very friendly, the menu selection was very good. No complaints, I'm sure we'll be...More

Mixed reviews of Swooners which opened in early 2014 occupying space formerly used by Skipper's Dock. The restaurant closed end of October 2014. Owners looking for a new formula. The terrific view of Stonington Harbor will probably attract interest by new operators.

We went for great seafood and we found it. The location on the wharf overlooking Stonington harbor could not be better. The menu had all the seafood we could want and we were not disappointed in any that we eat.

We are locals and waited for the initial difficulties to pass before trying. And we weren't disappointed! The service was excellent, delicious apps, entrees and desserts. It's a little pricey, but the location is the best in the village.

Very romantic, interesting decor on the inside. The food was excellent but was expensive. Save room for dessert. Did not leave overly full - food was delicious but portions were small.
