There's not much choice in the Watertown area in terms of bars that do good food, the west side and Tommy Doyles are the only 2 worth mentioning The West is down a side street and has a reasonable sized parking area and for the balmy days a nice outdoors seating area in the back. When you walk in the... More

Five of us sat down at a big wood table and within minutes, our cocktails arrived. Buffalo Wings ($10.00) were excellent with just the right amount of sauce and cooked perfectly. DePasquale's mixed grill, Sausage... More

The West Street has a great outdoor area for lunch and dinner and the staff is very friendly. Last summer they had Ballast Point Sculpin IPA on tap, so being able to enjoy that with some appetizers in outside was great!

This is, first and foremost a friendly bar, with a small but wonderful high production kitchen. The basic pub food is food is very tasty and in large portions. There are weekly specials that I looked at but stuck with a more conventional eggplant sandwich. My buddy had the turkey club, remarkable for its flavor and size. I liked everything... More

I cannot give this place enough stars! I ate brunch there for the first time this past Saturday and went back Sunday. We sat at the bar where the bartender, Matt, was very friendly, attentive and made the BEST mimosas (champagne with a splash of OJ). The food was unbelievable! My boyfriend had the lump crab cakes eggs benedict and... More

I really mean it! This restaurant is sort of a tavern. It has a bar and a nice area for dining. The menu has lots of good choices, is reasonably price, and has good variety to choose from. This a neat place for families as well as just adults. Try it. You will enjoy it. Wait staff was terrific too.
