I've been to Watchman's 3 times now, all to watch various sporting events and each time has been fantastic. For pub food, this is one of the best venues in the city as their Fish and Chips are second to none and their sandwiches/wraps are absolutely delicious. They also do a mean doughnut for dessert, which has a caramel dip... More

I believe everything on the menu is $7.95! Great deal and the couple of items that I've tried were very good! Live acoustic music on Thursdays is a big plus. Great spot.

Gathered here with a large group of friends; patio is big and nice. Our server was running off her feet to take care of us and did amazing for the size of group. Food was good (pub food) and reasonably priced. The only negative to this experience was the bartender inside; she wasn't very accomodating at all. She looked right... More

Great pub with great music. Food was good but make sure you have room for their deep fried cheesecake! OMG! It was fabulous! Staff very friendly.

It is a cozy pub to have a drink. The music is pretty loud and there are at least 15 screens with different channels. The service is good and also the food. But it is not a place to have a quiet diner.

I used to like this place. Easy going with a mixed crowd. Now its just seems the staff don't want to be there. Their NFL thursdays used to be fun. It will be interesting to see what happens in the fall. Pizza used to be good. But now.... there is dark cloud in this place now. Too bad.

I get the feeling that this is more of a nightclub or such than a place where a guy stops by to have a beer. But this guy, from out of town, was just stopping by for a beer. Which seemed like it was a bit of a pain in the @ss for the bartender. Further attention? Help with the... More

We used to come to watchmans at least twice a week. The old Manager Peter was great. Ever since new management has taken over.. Everything has gone down hill. Would rather go anywhere else but this place. They will need to keep up to all the other restaurants happy hours on 17th- you can find flat breads for $5 and... More
