Took a while to get the food even though the restaurant wasn't that busy. The menu seemed somewhat limited. The food was OK, but not a great value for the price, especially lunch. We didn't hate it, but we probably won't return.

Sunday brunch with the family.... Just average. No tomato juice, no grapefruit juice, no mocha.... Lots of "no's" this morning. But the average rating is more about the experience. I had chicken and biscuits. The biscuit was dry, the gravy way skimpy. The service was...More

We have been to Watts Grocery four times. The first two were great experiences, the last two were above average and most recently just average. Hopefully this isn't a trend. We started the meal with burnt corn bread. Not a big deal. The cheese mac...More

Visited here Oct 6, with 4 friends. Everyone had a great meal, the duck breast looked great (a friend had that). Nice atmosphere, very nice selection of bourbon from the bar. Great service, very attentive waitstaff.

The private room that we had our dinner party needs a serious upgrade. It was very hard to hear conversations even across the table. The food was very good and we all ordered from the menu. They allow special requests which added to the experience...More
