I've eaten here twice and both times had a fantastic meal! The scallops are to die for. The menu and wine list are great. There is something for everyone here. The restaurant does not take reservations, but it doesn't matter. There is a lovely outdoor area with adirondack chairs and rockers with firepits to sit and wait. You can enjoy a drink there also. After dinner, there is homemade ice cream served outside. The setting is at the marina and very romantic for sunsets. Highly recommend this place.

Came here for Father's Day based on the great reviews. Food was wonderful. Service was terrible. Worst than terrible really. Not only do they need new servers & bartenders. But they need to learn customer service. They have a nice deck bar but your not able to eat out there so that was also a bummer. Will not be back.

We were so surprised to find this great restaurant by a marina in Stonington, Connecticut. At the Dog Watch Cafe we shared a salmon sandwich but wished we had the appetite for more, because it was that good. With generous fresh fruit cup. The wait staff is professional, attentive, and friendly. It was a busy restaurant at 11:30 am which surprised us. Maybe the locals know to come early? Check it out if you are in the area, you will not be disappointed. Ice cream sold outside and gorgeous flower pots all around.
