“PERFECT!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

I took my wife away for her 50th birthday and while we did have the later halfof the week planned we hadn't considered a dinner option for our arrival. A quick GOOGLE serach of the area revealed The Dog Watch. Pulling into the parking lot ajacent to a marina, we were greeted by a small fire pit and white holiday lights on the front facade. Upon entering, the front, outdoor porch was warm and invinting for a cold February day but we opted for an inside table. Our waitress took us to a table overlooking the marina and a window view of the setting sun my wife and I could not get enought of. We were quickly asked for our drink orders and pondered the menu. As the sun set and we ordered our food I explained to the waitress that my wife is painfully alergic to garlic. (...yeah, I know.) The waitress made every option available to avail us to foods that could be modified. Lobster mac and cheese was our appitizer and it was amazing as were our dinners. If you are in the area, you NEED to stop by The Dog Watch. I know we'll be back!

The Lobster BLT had great amounts of lobster in it! Delicious lunch with a beautiful view! Wait was shorter than was originally told to be, so all in all, a terrific experience!

“Great food, busy place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2014

We have eaten here many times before and enjoy coming here as the food is always outstanding. Do not advise having dinner at the bar as the bartender was very aggressive toward all the customers to hurry and leave so others could sit there. He verbally pushed customers out of the way. All our other visits where we sat at a table we never felt rushed!

“Nice place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

Recently went to Stonington CT.Thought we would give Dog watch restaurant a try. The food was very good and the outside lounge on the dock was so relaxing.The whole bellies and the salmon were good as were our drinks. Restaurant is a little small and can get crowded. Early afternoon would work and gives you time to enjoy sun on the dock.
