This restaurant is located in a residential neighborhood and if you like locally owned places that seem like they've been there forever, where the locals eat you won't go wrong here. It's relatively small, but does take reservations and has a small parking lot. We both had the fresh perch and it's an understatement to say it melted in our... More

We eat here at least once a month and sometimes twice. The food is always good. The prime rib melts in your mouth. The servers are great. They always try to take care of any possible change requests in your order.

Chicken parm was excellent with nice homemade rolls. Clam chowder was also homemade and full of clams. Staff is so nice, and they let you know they are happy you are there. Man behind bar thanked us for choosing to eat there, wonderful experience in a Quiet out of the way family establishment. Will be going back for sure

Whenever we are in the mood for good food at a fair price we visit Shulers. If Terry or Jason are there they always stop to say hello at the table. Prime rib is excellent and Friday fish fry superb.

This is a neighborhood restaurant that was opened in the 40's or early 50's, they used to serve awesome food at very reasonable prices. Can't say that now since it changed hands... new owners,new menus,smaller portions and new higher prices. Skip this place!

Sorry you didn't have a great experience however what you said is not exactly true. Since we took over we did remove 2 or 3 items that just weren't selling and with minimum wage increases, increases in food costs and supplies as well as increases in utilities we were forced to raise some prices. In fact every restaurant in the... More

I have lived in Watertown for 58 years. I have gone to this restaurant for years. It offers a nice variety on the menu, and wonderful food, especially comfort food. The restaurant has an older style appearance but it is clean. The staff as well as the patrons are warm and friendly. You can't go wrong eating there.

This was the first time we have been to Shulers since the new owners. My wife had the stuffed shrimp and she said it was nothing like it used to be. We both had Calamari which was ok considering it was a frozen variety. I had the fried seafood dinner and it was ok but not as good as it... More

We are so sorry you had an unpleasant dining experience. We have been working hard to insure that every guest and every dinner is consistent in quality and enjoyment. Obviously we did not do that with your table. I know that our staff has a bad night every once in a while but that is no excuse. I have printed... More
