The craft brews at Watch City are amazing. The brewers constantly challenge themselves to come up with new and interesting combinations. And their stable of standard offerings is consistently great. On top of that the food is quite good from the deep-fried burger, to the fish & chips and the wings are the best in the area. Don't miss the... More

We've been coming here for years, and it's always a good experience. The beer is wonderful, and the burgers are delicious. Try the lamb burger, which is especially good. Also, the fish and chips are among the best I've ever had. The waitstaff is friendly and helpful, too.

Although a bit pricey, $51 w/o tip for 1 house wine, 1 draft, a burger, small appetizer and entree' salad, we enjoyed the place. Food was good and the burger was quite big. Beet salad with roasted pear, pecans and goat cheese was outstanding! Service quick and friendly.

I have been going here for years and have always enjoyed the beer selection. Creative, tasty, and great quality. Lately the selection has diminished. I hope this is a temporary issue. Food is above average. Normally at a brewpub I would stick to pub grub. At watch city feel free to wander from the typical!

Good food, excellent service. A little noisy for family conversation. A little pricey, but not outrageous.

The lamb and the beer buttered burgers are possibly the best burger I have ever had. They also brew their own beer and it's delicious! I found this place because I got a good deal on Groupon and have returned a couple times since.

I went twice this past year - once alone, and once with a very large group. The first time alone, I say at the bar and had a nice convo with the bartender who told me about the history and goals of the pub. It is really interesting that they allow individuals to "rent" their brewing equipment to brew their... More

Another trip because of a Groupon Coupon. I had the lamb burger and enjoyed it. My husband had the crab cake pannini and liked it. He was able to have a "pony" sized beer instead of a full sized: just the right size. Service was great. Pleasant surroundings.

Went on a Saturday night at about 10:30 and the place was pretty empty and quiet. Very good beers, average food. We got a bunch of appetizers, but none were special. Not sure if it is that quiet every weekend, but it sure was nice to just sit down and have a few beers with friends.

I found this place on line and checked out their menu. I thought I would go there for some half price apps during happy hour but I ended up ordering the deep fried burger instead. May sound gross but it was amazing. The flavor coming from the batter and being fried worked very well. Looking forward to going back for... More
