Maybe the best beer selection in town! And we have good beer!

Jim and Carol have so many good beers on tap that I never know ahead of time which I will choose. Nice atmosphere, friendly crowd, frequent entertainment, and excellent beers... read more

They never have enough bartenders when they have a large crowd. Bartenders are soooo slow. You wait forever to get a drink. Count the change u get back -the old guy who is part owner is usually drunk and can't make change correctly. Food is good, but again, takes an hour to get a sandwich.

Last night I visited this pub for the first time in my newly adopted hometown of Watertown, WI. I was with a male friend and both of us were warmly greeted by the owners, Carol and Jim. It is a beautiful place - from the entry with private and cozy seating and a fireplace, to the separate tables, and the... More

My wife and I have dropped by Lyon's on a regular basis for the last couple of years. We enjoy the atmosphere as well as talking with Jim and Carol. Ask Jim for a ghost story or two as you sip a pint at the bar or enjoy a live band on a Friday night.

Had a theater business meeting with my director and was impressed by the decor. Beautiful renovations, great selection of brews and the sandwich selection was very nice and do yummy. Liked that the theater crowd in Watertown hang out there and are very supported!

Great wine and bourbon pour but you probably need to be a regular to get attention. On our second round finally got some pretzels and a smile. Still cool inside - fireplace and a shamrock decorated tree.

Jim and Carol have so many good beers on tap that I never know ahead of time which I will choose. Nice atmosphere, friendly crowd, frequent entertainment, and excellent beers. It doesn't get much better than Lyon's Irish Pub in downtown Watertown, WI.

I found the ambience great, but the bartenders were not very friendly....except to the obvious regulars.

I have been at Lyons many times. It's a great location for a party in their party room (been to b'day parties, wedding receptions, company Christmas party, & even a baby Baptism reception). The owners are wonderful and accommodating! Love stopping by when they have a session of Irish music or anytime with family or friends! They host many fun... More

I love going here with my husband and his cousin. It's a quiet older crowd. The owner's have done a fabulous job of restoring the building to it's former glory. Ask them about it and they will find the time to tell you about their journey. They take their brews very seriously here, and serve a beer only in the... More
