A waterfront restaurant located in Stonington Borough and features seafood specials and stunning sunsets with views of the Harbor and Fishers Island Sound. We love the Grilled Seafood Medley, featuring shrimp, scallops, calamari, and salmon, served with citrus butter and coconut-scallion rice.

Bravo Bravo

Fine wine and authentic contemporary Italian food pairs pastas, sauces, and breads with local seafood. Ask the bartender to pair the red or white of choice with the entrees, or test a few signature cocktails.  The eclectic new design of downtown Italy meets local Mystic with the vibe of young professional happy hours and romantic date nights.

A perfect romantic date night! The fun lively background becomes background noise to a romantic date night as seating is intimate and the dining is elegant. The fine wine, the local bread and olive oil, and the appetizers, quiets down the pace of dinner to make it seem like a vacation away from the hustle of daily life.

Make sure to make a reservation but if you need to wait by the bar before the table is ready, the bar is a fun start to learning about blind dates or parents night out. The upscale atmosphere introduces the night with daily specials and recommendations for signature cocktails.

Red 36

Bright cocktails, big lounge chairs, and multiple bars make this experience a Newport Getaway with yachts docked up and sunsets overlooking the Mystic River. An extensive raw bar and outdoor setting quickly changes with the seasons with roaring fireplaces and cozy indoor seating.  The fresh seafood, the waterfront views, the echo of ringing of church bells, the distant buzz of the drawbridge, all bring a new look to “staycation” with no streets in sight or clocks with closing times.

The ambiance screams vacation. Take it on the ideal girls night or date night with people watching, fun flowing drinks and paint the town Rosé!! Sit back with the river views, fancy cocktails, light bites for great sunset bonding time.

Dog Watch Cafe

Dog Watch Cafe has three locations in Connecticut, and two of them are in Stonington, so you know they’re serious about keeping the town in awash with amazing food and waterfront views. As a phrase, the Dog Watch was coined in the 1700s to refer to the evening deck duty shift of sailors and mariners, which was a split shift that allowed the crew to enjoy dinner and a drink with the rest of the group. As a cafe, the Dog Watch follows this tradition of being a gathering spot to eat, drink, and be happy. Their food and beverage offerings are sourced from local vendors and include highlights such as the teriyaki salmon sandwich, for a casual lunch, or their bouillabaisse, made from a secret recipe of local fish simmered in a saffron infused broth.
