I was shopping uptown for the first time and stopped in for lunch. The atmosphere is great, the staff was very friendly and accommodating and I had a great sandwich. There were a lot of choices, and I wish I could have tried more! I had the club sandwich, which was brought to my table still warm with melting cheese.... More

Family of 5 stopped through Watertown this past week on a road trip and we were happy to have found Past Times. There is a comfortable at-home decor with two spacious seating areas. We all ordered different sandwiches (I loved my BLT) and the root beer float was HUGE and a hit! I would come here again.

This is a really neat place with great ambiance. The menu is a little limited and the hours are really limited but if you are looking for someplace for Breakfast or Lunch, then this really is a great place to go.

The restaurant takes up two older buildings in downtown Watertown. The wood floors are reminiscent of an old country store. Frosted windows hang from the ceiling and serve as dividers between booths. The food was plentiful and delicious. Our server was friendly and prompt.

All of thier sandwiches are available as wraps which I didn't know before. The cranberry cream cheese on it is so yummy. We tried the sweetcorn bites too this time and... More

The restaurant is in an old building downtown. The décor of the place is very comfortable as well as historical. The waitress had an amazing knowledge of the menu and helped us with our choices. All our meals were great. I had a BLT with a twist and it was very good. portions were generous and the prices were good.... More

Stopped in for breakfast with family while traveling through and I'd stop again without hesitation. Had to try their caramel rolls which were very fresh and very carmelly. Lots of other tasty choices on the breakfast menu too. Our waitress was friendly without being intrusive as was the owner. I also have to add a compliment on the cleanliness and... More

The food was very good and I love the atmosphere. Our waitress was fantastic! She was warm friendly and fun. The reason for only 3 circles was because it took 50 minutes to get our food and the restaurant was not busy. I was disappointed in that.
