We had a fabulous dinner celebrating my birthday. All arrangements made online, food and service outstanding. Can’t wait to see how the new outside dining works out this summer. Love it!
Every visit, every meal is always great!
Excellent local hangout. The tuna app is awesome as well as the rest of the menu.
We had a spectacular late lunch outside. Toasty heaters and friendly, attentive service.
Delicious food. Doesn't get any better!
Locals/very careful re: Covid protocols love this place-ALL year!
Appreciate ability to make reservations & location requests honored as much as feasible. Outside on dock at sunset (under powerful heaters in Feb) special & safe. Staff great & food always consistently good. Had broiled scallops & hub loves shaved Brussels salad w salmon. If too cold good table separation inside w panels. Good Job, Dogwatch.
( Take a nice walk around the stunning Borough before ...wear your 😷!)
First time inside dining in almost a year! Dog Watch did a great job with making the venue feel Covid separated and safe. Couldn’t have picked a better place. Outstanding food, service and views. Had mussels and scallops and grilled oysters along with lovely wine. Wonderful experience!!
Perfectly heated outdoor seating. Nice menu selections, tasty food. The hot mulled cider with a shot really hit the spot.
My daughter and I dined outdoors on the deck in mid-February. The heaters did a great job keeping up warm and the food was delicious, as it always is. My daughter has a bloody Mary blog and she found the bartender's creation to be fantastic. I love deck dining and am happy they have been able to make it work even during the winter.
Dog Watch is always a favorite. They do a great job of social distancing, outdoor heaters, etc.
Great brunch..... outside on beautiful day on the dock! Everything awesome!!!! See you next week ... or sooner!!!
Our Go to place. The owner's and staff quickly become your friends .
Friendly staff. Great food and drinks.
I have been going to the Dog Watch for many years. Since the pandemic, it is one of the few places I enjoy going, both indoors and out ! Matt and Lisa the bartenders are doing an amazing job, going above and beyond to make everyone feel comfortable and welcome. I go there myself at times and never feel awkward.
The food is consistently good, and they make the best martini's !
Thanks to Dave and Wendy for getting us through these times.
Food and service were very good. We felt extremely comfortable with the social distancing layout in the restaurant. Will definitely be back! Especially for the delicious cucumber Bloody Mary !!
I have already recommended the Dog Watch Cafe to friends! Our meals were delicious, the service was wonderful, and the outdoor seating was comfortable and scenic. We will be back for sure the next time we visit Stonington!
Highly recommended on all fronts!
I appreciate being able to eat outside with heaters and a view. Brought a blanket for my lap and was perfectly comfy.
Still open air outdoor seating in February!! Thank you! Thank you! and as always, excellent food and service!
Great brunch today!!!! Wonderful food and service !!!! 💕💕
We had the crab spring rolls, lobster ravioli and bouillabaisse... all amazing!
Such a beautiful location. Following great measures to ensure Covid safety. Great food, service and fun atmosphere. Love it here!
Always right on! Service is the best and food always good!
Hands down, the best fish n chips in Connecticut. Large portions and the fish is fried to perfect golden crispness. We drive an hour and a half to eat here and have never been disappointed. Highly recommend!
Great!!! As always!!!!
Wonderful experience celebrating our friends birthday. Food was excellent as usual.
Great lunch at DogWatch on the porch!!! 30 outside but warm and delightful inside... great staff, great food great friend!!!!
We ate outside on the deck. Sunny but cold. Heat lamps didn’t do much but we dressed appropriately. Great food as always!
Always great! I get the seared tuna and it was great! Friendly staff, attentive and helpful.
Excellent food every time! I’ve tried many different things on the menu and never been disappointed!
Awesome night!!!! Always great at DW!!!
Dog Watch was the perfect place to take Grandmother for her Birthday! As usual, the food and service was above and beyond!
We ate outside on a chilly February night and the heaters kept us cozy and warm! It was awesome!
Ate outside due to Covid-19 concerns. Heaters were warm and we felt safe. Great staff and service.
Great Staff - all especially Sara
Only problem was with a door to the outside. Staff had to use it for outdoor patrons and the door never closed properly so we were constantly closing it to stay warm.
We are locals and this is our favorite go to restaurant!!!
Never disappoints! Great views & service ... food is consistently yummy!!!
Fried clams were excellent. Wife had lobster Mac and cheese. Very good. Desserts were nice size and priced right
Great location and atmosphere. Welcoming feel. Good food. Can’t wait to visit again when the weather is warmer.
it was safe, as far as covid is concerned. wait staf very pleasant.
