We are locals who consider ourselves to be regulars at both Dogwatch locations. You do things right! Here’s our one complaint, and it does impact our Mystic indoor dining experience negatively. We know it’s popular, and particularly so on something like Twelve Buck Tuesday. We get that. But why can’t something be done about the acoustics? Noise dampening of some sort? We know you won’t ask noisy people to leave, but every time we go, there are tables of folks practically screaming or shrieking. It might be a deal breaker for us. Please think about it.

Dog Watch Tuesday pasta specials are a tradition in Mystic & Stonington, CT.
We have often joined friends for this budget meal & wine.
However, this year's pasta dishes are now made w/o ingredients that we'd come to enjoy.
Missing are shrimp pastas & gone is their delicious Alfredo. Both the chicken & beef pastas have only tiny morsels of meat.
I would still recommend you visit but not for their special 12 buck Tuesdays.

Inside looked cozy, but temperature was cool. Felt as if the air conditioner was on. Outside heaters seemed to work really well at keeping people warm though

Dogwatch Mystic is one of our favorite restaurants. Entrees come with a choice of two sides. I got macaroni and cheese and collard greens to go with baked cod. The food was excellent. The restaurant has a cozy fireplace going. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Be sure to make reservations. The place is popular and seating is limited.

The food and service was AMAZING! Such wonderful holiday decor.
Only problem was there was a very large rowdy party next to us that made our evening a little less enjoyable.
Not the restaurants fault though- will definitely be back. We love dog watch!!!

Opted for inside because we thought it would be warmer this time of year. Was really chilly. That may be why the pulled pork that is usually very good wasn't this time because it was only luke warm.

First time eating here. Small restaurant so you may wish to make a reservation as we did as it certainly filled up fast. Started with a bowl of clam chowder which my boyfriend enjoyed the enjoyed beef brisket grilled cheese with a side of collards & a lobster roll with collards. Staff was friendly & personable. Food delicious and price was on point. My only surprise was that with 3 local wineries in town, no option to purchase a glass of "local" wine. Plus, great outdoor space with heaters.

Food was very tasty. Service was lackluster. She disappeared when it was time to clear out the dishes and run the check. Never said her name, pet peeve of ours.

A great place to get together for a quiet dinner or dinner with friends. They offer indoor or outdoor seating.Outdoor seating has heat lamps and fire pits for those cold days/nights. A must try Nachos, they were delicious. A good size portion was served. Plenty for 5 of us. The Huckleberry Lemonade was delicious and refreshing. Staff and service both great!

Have eaten at Dog Watch BBQ a number of times and the food has always been consistently good. If you decide to eat inside, the noise level can be quite loud. If you decide to eat outside, the setup is quite good with respectable distance between diners.

We visited Dog Watch for the first time. The room was very pleasant with a fire burning in the fireplace, making a chilly day much more cozy. Food was very good. We’ll visit again when we are in mystic.

My wife and I had dinner at Dog Watch prior to attending the John Fogerty concert at Foxwoods. We requested a table away from the crowd and we were seated at a high top table between 2 air purifiers.
The food was delicious-well proportioned and nicely balanced with a bowl of coleslaw.
I had the lobster BLT yum! And my wife had the warm lobster roll. Brought a smile to her face!
Concert was great too!!

Never a disappointment. Tuna for the win every time. The burrito special my parents had was BOMB! This particular location packs the punch with food and is family friendly. Granted my daughter has going to the borough location this one is just so much more comfortable and kiddo appropriate. Yum. Yum. Yum.

We love everything about Dog Watch Mystic. I usually get the Codwich Sandwich while my husband likes the baked cod meal. Everything is tasty.
Waitresses are friendly and responsive to requests. Eating inside is comfortable on cooler days.
