We stopped there for lunch and can say anything bad about this place! The waitress was very friendly and attentive. The food was simple but made from scratch, well prepared and tasty. Plus it was good value for the money! Good stop over while traveling back home.

We went here on a recommendation from the clerk at the hotel. We couldn't believe how packed it was for a Sunday night. But the wait was really short, less than 15 minutes. Everyone in our family ordered Italian dishes and they were all good. Salads were good too. We were a little disappointed the bread served looked like white... More

The online menu seemed very diverse so we ventured there. The atmosphere is rustic, the food and service were fantastic. Would definitely recommend this place to... More

Stopped for lunch and had quick, attentive service. "Red" chowder was good, with an abundance of clams, served nice and hot. Our "half" sandwiches were hearty and filling: turkey/provolone had moist and tender meat, and the ham/capicola/salami was savory and delicious on decent Italian bread, with chips, and a pickle PLUS pepperoncini! Good coffee and iced tea, as well. We... More

We were a hungry band of ten after a soccer game at nearby General Brown High School. It was a little late, but the Fairground Inn was still teeming with people. Our visit got off to a rocky start when our server appeared to be a little flustered and was having a tough time getting our order straight. When she... More

Our waitress was friendly & attentive to our table. I always love coming back to the fairgrounds when I visit watertown. The house dressing is... More

We had lunch at the Fairground Inn, with eight people. We were seated quickly for a group of that size. All of our food was very tasty and the portions were great. My husband had the biggest meatball sub we've ever seen and he said it was very tasty. The atmosphere is also very pleasant. The prices were very good,... More

We had dinner here while traveling through the town. Everyone really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. We went with the kids and they are also a kid friendly restaurant.
