About Us

The Dog Watch Cafe is located in beautiful Stonington Borough, overlooking Dodson Boatyard and the Stonington Harbor. We offer great food in a casual seaside atmosphere perfect for kicking back with good friends and family. Watch Hill oysters, Stonington sea scallops, lobster rolls, open faced burgers and grilled mahi are among the offerings. Awarded Best New Restaurant by Connecticut Magazine, and Best Bar in New London County.

Join us for lunch and dinner indoors or outside. Our fire pit will warm you up in the Winter and our Ice Cream Tent offers a delicious place to kick back and digest after your meal in the Summer. The Dog Pound overlooks the water in the back and is open May-September for drinks, games, and spectacular harbor sunsets.

Check out our live music schedule during the off season!
