Featuring a year-round patio and outdoor bocce court, Branch Line offers something for everyone. Twenty taps continuously change and offer a great craft beer selection, while a curated wine list features bottles that are value-driven and also ready for any special occasion.
The Green Circle Rotisserie Chicken spins and roasts in sight of nearly every table in the dining room while the fire roars under vegetables, fish, and meat. The "Little Chicken" menu is great for kids, too!

Rob and Will at the bar - does not get better!!!!
There was a wait inspite of a reservation. The service was great but the food wasn't . We had ordered cauliflower melt sw. Which had raw cauliflower. The server was nice to get it off our check. We liked the service and ambience the food was just ok
Ok not geeat
A magical place in Watertown, but with the ambiance of Italy. We ate in the indoor/outdoor space, warmed by heaters and lit with special sparkling lights. Impeccable food, and the best chicken in Boston.
Great beer selection. Good food.
Nice setting and good service. Inconsistent portion sizes of the same entree were disappointing.
Hade a great meal with future parent in laws. Everything was great. Appetizers to espresso!
The food was not as good as I remember. I think I prefer the lunch menu. The charcuterie was bad actually - old cheese and uninspired meat. The chicken soup is good as is the pasta but, again, not as good as I remember!
I took my daughter after the play at the nearby Mosesian. Our first time there.
Very pretty inside, with tea light candles on every table, open kitchen, and industrial look.
The service and food was fantastic. Our waitress was personable and attentive. There was a minor discrepancy on the bill but was handled well. Looking forward to our next visit!
It was great but quite loud.
Nothing was really good, nothing was really bad just very average and the price was still higher than it warranted
Wonderful night great service.will definitely go back
The staff was pleasant and accommodating. The food was of the highest quality and tasted great. Always a pleasure to eat here. Thank you...
We had a great brunch celebrating a birthday. The server was outstanding. She regularly stopped by and accommodated one of our party who is gluten free. The food was delicious and we will definitely be back to try more dishes.
The food, service, and management are AMAZING! We will be getting out to Watertown more often for the soul purpose of having more great meals like the one we had this evening.
Love this place. The chicken wings and cauliflower and broccoli are very good!
Always a slam dunk experience here; great food with frequent menu additions, good beer/wine selection, and a terrific setting to enjoy with friends and family.
Chicken was outstanding
Never disappoints!! Great bar spot if you can manage to reserve or score seats. Menu changes a bit seasonally and keeps things fresh.
Great service, nice friendly ambiance, comfort food very good. Great value.
Rotisserie chicken is the house speciality and also very tasty and moist.
Trout was very good and flavorful.
Fried potatoes with Parmesan, and snapper salad are also great side dishes
Remarkable. Great service. Knowledgeable. Wonderful environment. Food was spectacular. Truly. Cannot wait to go back.
Wonderful start to finish. Excellent service, very attentive and accommodating. Food was delicious as always.
Branch Line is always my go-to place for an intimate night out outside the city. The wine selection is great, plates are perfect for sharing, and the ambiance is warm and cozy — perfect for a weekend date night or get-together with close friends.
Ashley is the BEST bartender/server EVER!
Will go back again soon!
The bartenders were great to chat with and the food was delicious.
I always enjoy the food and they have really stepped up their lunch menu. Get the rotisserie dripping. You'll thank me later.
Always a good meal, great service and the beer list always has a broad range of wonderful choices.
Awesome. Incredible food and ambiance. Great attentive staff. Free desert for birthday. Would recommend to anyone.
We were a group of 5 women. Our server was excellent, she gave us suggestions on what and how much to order and it was perfect. We ordered one whole chicken and 3 sides which we would have thought wouldn't be enough and it was plenty plus we took home some chicken. We also had a few salads. The snap pea salad was amazing and we all wanted to order more. The Caeser salad was not very flavorful. We were not aware that there was only a beer and wine license so a few people were disappointed that they couldn't have a cocktail but I suppose that's our fault for not doing more research. All in all it was a delicious, reasonably priced dinner. Would definitely go back just for the snap pea salad and I don't even like snap peas!
We were looking for a good restaurant for our dinner anniversary... Glad we found this restaurant just 3 minutes away from the hotel where we checked in... and we would say we really enjoyed it... nice ambiance, great food and overall very good service!
We were celebrating a graduation and our server brought up a small glass of bubbly after dinner
Great time sitting “outside” (cozy and warm). Delicious chicken and sides. Great wine selection. Enjoyed once again!
I love everything about Branch Line! The food is great, the wine selection is great, the staff is amazing!
Great service. Predictably good food
We were there a couple of years ago and it was AWESOME. Our experience there the other night was awful. Food was terrible. Maybe they have a different chef. It was very disappointing. Won't be going back.
The roast chicken was very tasty indeed & the sides hit the spot as well. The service did leave something to be desired however. Would visit again but not in a rush to return.
We have been to Branchline many times and it is one of my partner’s favorite restaurants. However, we were really disappointed with our experience this time. We ordered two appetizers and two entrees, all of which came out within 10 minutes. We had no time to enjoy the food and both felt sick after trying to eat some of every dish before it went cold.
It was fine. Nothing amazing, nothing terrible.
Good food, friendly service.
Server was pleasant. Sadly only beer and wine license. Stuffed scallop is not true. It’s a minced up scallop similar time a crab cake. Decent but not what I was expecting by the description. Burger was shockingly super thin and medium rare came well done. Hangar steak was so so and the snap pea salad was tasty. They handle allergies very professionally. Probably won’t rush back here.
