“Horrible service.”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

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.

“Great salmon sandwich in cafe by the marina”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

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.

“Fresh Fish!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

On a Sunday evening we waited 45 minutes for our table. (Although they don't take reservations, their system was very efficient.) The two entrees we ordered, (Broiled Scallops, Crusted Tuna) were perfectly prepared and delicious! We shared a brownie/ice cream dessert. We appreciated our waitress (Elaine) sharing her opinions with us regarding our choices for entrees, sides, and dessert. Everything was excellent. This is a busy, bustling bar restaurant. The cafe is dockside in Stonington. Go for the great food, casual seaside location! ( If you want to avoid waiting, go before 5 or after 7))
