Delicious Food!

I recently spent several months in the area and enjoyed dining here with my husband on a busy Saturday night. We both enjoyed one of the burgers and a beer. It was difficult to get service that night as there were lots of people there for the bar.

The sandwiches and finger food are very good. The atmosphere is really nice. Plenty of TV's for watching sports. Best bartenders around.

Stopped in at the Bismarck and loved seeing this great old historic bar. It is a big place and has kept its original decor with the metal tile ceiling, great old back bar and wood tables and booths. We had their specialty, the Prime Rib sandwich and it was big and very good. They have several options to chose from.... More

This is my husband's favorite Saturday lunch spot! I believe they make the best burgers in all of Watertown! And with a variety like Rodeo burger, chipotle burger, black & blue burger, etc. What I love is that they will accommodate me and put my burger of choice on a bowl of garden salad! Their Main St chips are scrumptious,... More

I can say this because I have tasted burgers from almost all (or possibly all) restaurants in Watertown. The have a great variety and are always excellent.

Bismarcks has a nice selection of burgers, sandwiches, and plate lunches in an "old time tavern" building. There is a good beer variety but almost always something new added to the lineup. The staff and management are cordial and will call you by name about the third time you visit. My wife and I go in regularly, often for a... More

A lot of very typical fried bar food but also has good specials and items not found at the average 'bar'. For instance, their prime rib sandwich, which is really tasty, but pretty 'hit and miss' with size. I eat here several times throughout the year and have gotten it from 1/4" thick to 3/4" thick - always tasty though!... More

Great downtown pub with great service and good food. Pool table, basketball game, back room tables with nice flatscreen TV's. Great place to watch the game.

Nothing special. Food is good, but the service and staff attitude is terrible. We waited over an hour for our simple orders.

Absolutely love the food. Unfortunately, every single time we stop there the service is incredibly slow. Most times the bartender is serving drinks and taking care of the tables. We will not stop if we want to be there for anything under an hour. The wait is worth it, don't get me wrong, but better service would go a long... More
