I wish someone would improve the interior. I find it dirty. Maybe there is no money to make improvements.
Wish they would get a chef and offer interesting comfort foods from the era instead of junky food that you can find in any dumpy food stand or diner.
Have lived in the area all of my life and have been past Watson's countless times, but had never eaten there. Decided to take an out of town guest recently. The food was okay, a little over priced in my opinion. The service was minimal. The waitress came back once right after we got our food, but that was it,... More
A combination restaurant and store. The ambiance is great; it takes you back to the 70's. Food is your average restaurant; nothing great, nothing bad. The shakes however are great and the size is big enough that two people can share one.
If you visit Watson's in the right frame of mind, you'll enjoy it, as I did. Watson's has been serving customers since the 1890's. It is not glam or fancy. It's a drug store soda fountain. If you expect a big plate heaping with greasy goodness for breakfast, you've come to the right place! I had the scrambled eggs, bacon,... More
—stopped there for dinner with my son and daughter-in-law, I had read mixed reviews but wanted to take in it's retro ambiance and try the vaunted milk shakes. What a disappointment! It's more of a tourist trap. The service was quick and our order arrived quickly and correctly. My eggs and Polish sausage were tolerable but these people need to... More
Watson Drug Store & Soda Fountain in Old Orange is a step back to yesteryear. Don't expect anything more than a diner. A visit here is fun & casual - you can sit inside amid the very classic American diner motif or outside, on the sidewalk tables & be part of the hustle & bustle of the Orange Circle. Food... More
We go here everytime we are in town! Good food, not gourmet, but great experience! I enjoy the veggie burger full of fried onions and husband has the breakfast! I love their chocolate malts and I think they are the best ever. Service is usually good and you should watch out for a Groupon or Livingsocial coupon but even without... More
This great gem of a store makes old fashioned shakes and has a wide assortment of sodas from when you were a kid. We ordered dinner and the meal was nice and the food type reminded me of a "Rosie's Dinner" type of place. Food was fast, service was polite, and it was a step back into time. They have... More
We sat inside in the back at about 5:30 pm. Service was fine. Ordered dinners of meat loaf and orange chicken. Meat loaf was hard, potatoes were full of lumps and vegetables were cold. Orange chicken remains unidentifiable. We should have sent the food back to the kitchen, but we didn't.
