We checked into out hotel in Watertown and had so many choices for places to eat. All the regular chains, Applebees, Bob Evans, etc, etc.I checked Tripadvisor and this restaurant was rated number 3. The online menu seemed very diverse so we ventured there. The atmosphere is rustic, the food and service were fantastic. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone. We went a bit early (around 530pm) by the time we got out the lobby was crammed with people waiting to get in which is always a good sign. It seems the locals love this place, for good reason.

Stopped for lunch and had quick, attentive service. "Red" chowder was good, with an abundance of clams, served nice and hot. Our "half" sandwiches were hearty and filling: turkey/provolone had moist and tender meat, and the ham/capicola/salami was savory and delicious on decent Italian bread, with chips, and a pickle PLUS pepperoncini! Good coffee and iced tea, as well. We will be back to check out their large menu another time.

We were a hungry band of ten after a soccer game at nearby General Brown High School. It was a little late, but the Fairground Inn was still teeming with people. Our visit got off to a rocky start when our server appeared to be a little flustered and was having a tough time getting our order straight. When she reappeared with all of our beverages and meals in their proper place, we were greatly relieved. We ordered a variety of items from chicken wings, to pizza to veal parm. All were were very tasty. I myself can recommend the Fairground Chicken Sandwich. A chicken breast covered with mushrooms and peppers and alfredo sauce. Very tasty. We were in and out in about an hour. We didn't feel rushed at all, just very efficient service. The prices were very family friendly and everyone agreed that we should stop at the Fairgrounds again. There are plenty of items on the menu that I'd like to try.

Recently stopped in at the fairgrounds inn for dinner & drinks with some friends. We were looking for a bar table & stay at the bar while we waited for a group to finish up. Our waitress was friendly & attentive to our table. I always love coming back to the fairgrounds when I visit watertown. The house dressing is a personal favorite & it didn't disappoint. Great girls night out! I will be back again soon!
