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.

Awesome food and outstanding service from the whole crew especially Lizzy who really commands the dining room with her personality and work ethic and all the other servers who perform team service were outstanding. Love the new menu and the $12 pasta and wine. We had a great evening.

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.

Dog Watch was just what we needed! Sat next to the fire place after being outside on a chilly, rainy day. Great cocktails and food. Glutenfree options were available with minimum upcharge.

My husband ordered the brisket and I ordered the pub steak. Both were great. But the service is what makes the whole dining experience outstanding. I'd highly recommend.

We had reservations for six but at the last minute one more friend decided to join us. Despite how busy they were, the staff went out of their way to accommodate our group and never making us feel as though we were an imposition. It is a warm welcoming environment, a great place for friends and family.

We made the reservations but didn"t realize their were two Dog Watch places? I though we made reservations for Stonington and ended up at the one in Mystic which reservation was lost as we got lost? We finally ended up at the one on Water St. and of course no reservation there??? We don't know how that all hapened but be aware their are two of them? We ended going to lunch in Westerly RI as the Stonington Dog Watch couldn't not seat us....Very disappointed as we were entertaining guest from California.

The staff was great, facility eye appealing and comfortable. Ordered shaved Brussel Sprout Salad, ingredients were missing, I think it should have a variety of greens mixed in, too chewy.

The service was excellent! Jules was very attentive and sociable. Mashed potatoes for those who ordered them needed to be sent back to be reheated.
It was a cool afternoon but still enjoyable to sit out on the patio with the heaters by your table.
