Historic inn, nice ambience. Wait staff very friendly. Nice selection of lunch and dinner items-reasonably priced. Very good French Onion Soup--I try it wherever I go. Comfy booths with authentic antique fittings.

We were in town for an annual visit to Lewisburg for a large athletics event. We had heard about the Watson Inn via a friend that had been staying there for the last few years. With all of the Lewisburg hotels gouging this captive audience with normal costs in the $150 or higher for this past week, the Watson was... More

We have eaten here on a couple of occasions and the woodwork never ceases to amaze me. This place is beautifully done and classy. The food is very good. I asked for a dish that was no longer on the menu and the chef obliged and made it. It was delicious and enough for 3 meals. The service was very... More

We attended a wedding reception here food was ok, room for the price was good. Room was clean and comfortable, the bed did slope toward the middle, however the 2nd bed was more firm. The chicken cordon bleu was a better choice of meal over the flat iron steak. Very good hors d'oeuvres and the ballroom was very nice.

The owners of this property should be ashamed for offering such poor quality accomodations. Where do I begin....for our room on the 2nd fl. there were 15 watt lights in the dark, twisty hallways (not an exaggeration), a hot and stuffy room, no air conditioning (a fly-speckled fan was provided instead), a lumpy mattress matched by two lumpy old pillows,...

The interior is remarkable especially considering the town in which the restaurant is located. Servers are prompt and polite. Food is very good. We especially like to sit at the booths in the bars. They confer some intimacy and privacy to a time out together.

11/20/15-Nice bar food. We stopped here before staying over in New Columbia, PA. New Columbia is our stay over for Penn State FB. The food is decent and reasonable. I had the chicken Breast Steak.

It's been a tradition for my Dad and I to make reservations at the Watson Inn for Thanksgiving Day. For many years, minus two or three, that's where we've been... including this year. I'll admit, I've been disappointed in the past as well as happy with our experience. First, the decor is really one of the nicest in the area.... More

Nice woodwork in this restaurant/bar. Food is good and priced perfect! Hours of operation are very short. They use to have better hours not sure what happened to open so late and close so early.
