Breakfast served all day in an old-timey diner that has barely nudged out of the post WWII era? Crisp and efficient service? Fair prices for good-sized portions? Last question: So what's not to like? Go for the short stack of pancakes loaded w/ blueberries or the delicious, eggy challah french toast. Having tried diner breakfast at a number of area... More

Good service! Nice people, classic diner fare (think grease), good taste, clearly a local area fave. I like it whenever I don't care about calorie counts.

A go-to Diner for family to get a quick meal when too busy to cook. Friendly staff and good food. Service is quick and clean. Great breakfasts.

Every time I come here I want to order their advertised gluten free pancakes and the answer is always: We don't have them today! FALSE ADVERTISEMENT.

After living in the area for 55 years, I've finally had Sunday breakfast at the Watertown Diner. It won't take me that longer to return. We had a wonderful breakfast of Farmer's Omelet, a Corned Beef Hash Omelet and apple cinnamon banana pancakes. Omelets are served with hash browns and toast. Service was very good. The place is a great... More

One of the best places to eat in Watertown. WD not only holds its own against some very stiff competition (on the same street no less) but, in my opinion, surpasses other options in friendly service, availability of seating, and that people come from all over Watertown, and the general area to eat.

The food is good enough for the prices. It is filling and reasonably tasty. The ice cream is excellent and portion sizes are huge. It is very busy and noisy and the general experience being there is hectic.
