Good restaurant and great prices!

We had the pasta sampler and enjoyed some of the best lasagna I have ever had. They have other food selections (besides pasta) on the menus and some really good prices. The server was very attentive and friendly. This is a family owned restaurant and the decor is a bit dated, however, that... read more

This place was recommended to us several years ago, and we make it a point to go back every summer when we visit the area. The food selection is plentiful, prices at affordable, waitstaff is wonderful, and the food is delicious! We were disappointed this year to find them closed for renovations when we were in town, but there's always... More

Nice lunch with a friend. She had the nachos and I had the BLT. I guess it'd be pretty hard to mess those up. Our server was good. They were busy. It's a locals kind of place. I'd go back.

I enjoyed a wonderful haddock dinner with family. The portions were very generous. The restaurant was very busy, and we had to split into two different booths, or else we would have waited over 90 minutes. Apparently there are not very many tables available if you have more than 4 in your party. After a very delicious meal, I went... More

Been coming here since I was a kid. Highly suggest French onion soup & bbq chicken pasta salad. Haven't had an unsatisfactory experience yet.

If you're looking for an outstanding meal in Watertown, make sure you visit Fairgrounds Inn. Whenever we are in the area, we always stop in at this restaurant for dinner. The service is outstanding, the food is excellent and prices are very reasonable. Salads are always fresh and served with a delicious house, homemade dressing. Our favorite dish is the... More
