A comfortable deck and water view adds to the delicious food and good service. I will bring my guests from out of town here to savor the food and enjoy the view.

On the water restaurant with good food and service - exceedingly rare in Connecticut. First time - in Northington, what a beautiful little town. And lunch on a hot sunny summer day with wife and daughter - with oysters, fish and chips, and nice drinks. On the pier under an umbrella. Perfetto.

We were excited to eat outside right at the water! They have yummy seafood options, but also have sandwiches & burgers as well!
21:18 13 Jul 22
Everything was great, the food, drinks, service and location. We had such a wonderful time. It was my first time there and it will be the first of many.

I've been here several times with a friend whose daughter lives in Stonington. This time I came here with my wife. I had the Breakwater salad and it was delicious. While we ate, our eyes feasted on the view of the harbor.
02:28 12 Jul 22
Food was perfectly done the waitress we had was awesome couldn't ask for any better service
17:02 10 Jul 22

WOW!!! What a wonderful lunch & terrific service! We were greeted by the awesome hostess, Elizabeth. She sure made us feel special with her kindness. Our server Ally was also top notch! 🦞 roll, shrimp and salmon wrap with potote fries were delicious!
21:05 03 Jul 22
Love it. Great food, cocktails, and staff. View is terrific. Truffle fries, lobster roll, salmon, and fish tacos all delicious. $$$

The Breakwater is a beautiful location with plenty of seating options. Or server was awesome and recommended great options which we were all very happy with. Highly recommend it if you're in the borough make sure you eat here.
16:26 23 Jun 22
First visit to this establishment and we were very pleased from the service to the taste. Will be returning and would recommend to anyone looking for an alternative to other waterfront establishments.
10:32 23 Jun 22
Always love going here and sitting outside - one of our favorite places since moving to CT
00:01 17 Jun 22
I love the martinis, the menu, the view. 3rd visit in a week. As always, excellent menu. Extremely courteous and efficient staff. Kudos to a great restaurant**********
05:39 16 Jun 22
Great food and service, nice views
18:28 05 Jun 22
We always enjoy going to Breakwater! This restaurant is always consistent with its food, cocktails and service. The wife and I have found that one of the biggest problems with waterfront dining in Connecticut and New England for that matter is lack of consistency in good/great food and service. We never worry about that when we come to Breakwater! The only other place in New England that I would mention is Coastguard House in RI. That to me and I hope to Breakwater is quite a compliment!We will be back again and again this season and for years to come!

Very nice selection and staff!
21:19 11 Feb 22
First I must comment on its location, driving through the beautiful historic town of Stonington you will find this beautiful restaurant on the water - kinda tricky to find if your from out of town as it is nestled between the pretty old buildings/homes but we did get to drive around some cool historical cannons.Service was absolutely spectacular from our hostess who was super friendly to our waiter Keila who made us feel very welcome.We had the fried calamari, mussels marinara and blue cheese fondu with toasted French bread to start - all very tastyThe main courses we had were the sword fish, grilled seafood medley and fish tacos - all fresh and delicious - just what everyone in my party craved and enjoyedI would defiantly recommend if you are passing through and in the mood for fresh tasting seafood
02:48 21 Jan 22
Excellent food, very pleasant service, great drinks and a beautiful view. Add to that a very lively and engaging happy hour crowd at the bar and I will come back here over and over and over again as often as I'm in town.
01:28 30 Dec 21
I echo so many of the posted reviews. View is wonderful and the food is always excellent. However, the standout for my husband and me is the amazing service. All are cordial, helpful if you have a few unique requests, and extremely attentive without being overbearing. My husband and I have been coming to Breakwater regularly and will continue to do so in 2022!
00:50 20 Dec 21
Excellent.We have been there twice and were very pleased the food is really good.
04:57 18 Dec 21
Enjoyed my time drinking wine, sitting right by the water. Truly an amazing sight. Enjoy an amazing dinner or a glass of their delicious wine. For an amazing date take her here fellas. 100%
20:38 14 Dec 21

Great food, service, and an amazing sunset to go with it all.
19:20 07 Nov 21
Amazing location in Stonington Burrough. Water views are special. Decent sized parking lot. Had half a dozen ninigret oysters. Excellent as expected. Fish and chips was good. Plan to try more of the wide selection of seafood dishes. Service was attentive and prompt. A little pricey but not crazy.
00:45 26 Oct 21
Great lobster roll and swordfish wrap. They make their own potato chips too. Staff was very friendly and accommodating.
01:49 25 Oct 21
We had a relaxing late sunday afternoon meal.Wonderful. Great salad!

The drinks here are exactly as they should be Good & Strong. We were seated quickly and the service was amazing. We ordered the fish and chips and blackened chicken tacos. So good
23:00 17 Oct 21
What a lovely place! We had dinner, right at sunset. The food was wonderful. Seafood pasta and swordfish. Try the local Beer'd, that's correct, on tap. Wheat with a citrus flavor. Great friendly wait staff. Eat outside if possible.
18:35 12 Oct 21
Phill took excellent care of us, we would go back again just to see him. The food was all wonderful, we each got one of the dinner specials with calamari as our app. We definitely will be visiting again.

It was are first time and the experience left us going to make a return visit.
00:59 20 Sep 21
This is a gem kind of off the beaten track from the touristy Mystic area that the locals know well and love. The meals are a cut above, service is warm, friendly and exceptional, prices are reasonable for the quality of the food and you can't beat the waterfront views. We ate out on the dock. We enjoy parking at the Stonington point past the Lighthouse and walking to the Breakwater for drinks and dinner. Truly a favorite of ours!
22:59 12 Sep 21
Have been there before still another great place to eat outside dinning great view.
19:09 11 Sep 21

Beautiful view and great food
07:38 20 Aug 21
I attended a networking luncheon at The Breakwater this afternoon and the staff could not have been more accomodating. We ended up with an additional guest which prompted a cimplete shift in the table configuration to accomodate. They did this with grace and ease while we took a group picture. Daniel was extremely attentive to our needs and was full of positive energy. The menu has a wide array from small bites, inviting salads, sandeiches to full entrees. My pork bowl was fresh bursting with color and flavor. I highly recommend!
22:42 18 Aug 21
Great place... my lobster roll and truffle fries were amazing !!!
20:26 17 Aug 21
Excellent Firecracker Shrimp! Perfect Dock & Dine!
16:31 10 Aug 21

19:19 09 Aug 21
Absolutely the best fried scallops I've ever had! The views are incredible, the service was fantastic and we had a great time.
21:16 08 Aug 21
Excellent food and service with an outstanding water view. The server was so personable and she accomadated a few special requests required by my two small grandchildren. I loved the oysters on the half shell and lobster roll.
03:05 05 Aug 21
Very nice place on the docks in Stonington! Awesome seafood and great water views!
20:27 01 Aug 21
When a restaurant does well, it’s easy to compliment them. When they have a few mishaps and their response is over the top gracious… you want to tell everyone you know. Long story short, I live here and I would have been happy to bring people back here again per the view, the service, and the food, but because they responded to something small, appropriately, swiftly- and dare I say grandly, I can’t wait to bring visiting guests again and again. Many thanks Breakwater—- you rock!
01:53 01 Aug 21
