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

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

We celebrated my husband's birthday with my daughter and grand-daughter. The whole meal was excellent. Would suggest others to go there.

As frequent visitors to Watertown, we finally experienced The Fairground Inn and definitely wish we'd eaten there before now. What a GREAT place we've been missing all these years! The atmosphere is fun, friendly and truly welcoming; Taylor who served us is fabulous, helpful and accommodating; the menu is SO extensive you're spoiled for choice and every item ordered was...

Fairgrounds have been around for generations. The service is good and the food also. The pasta is always a favorite as is the antipasto and the Reuben's. The Coleman family has been a staple for years and any of their restaurants are always good.

Went here for lunch and loved it! The ambiance is nice - casual, friendly, fun. The murals on the wall give a touch of "Old Italy" - nice. The food was tasty and the service good. We'll go again when we're in the area, for certain!

This place is great. We ordered jalapeno poppers with raspberry sauce, I asked for an extra sauce, no problem with the waitress. The were quickly delivered to... More

My husband and I stopped by for lunch during the holiday season. We arrived early before the typical lunch crowd, so we sat in the bar area. The environment sold us immediately and the food just got it over the top. First off, the waitress was pleasant and knew several of the people there by name. She recommended a couple... More
