Family in town. Had an amazing experience and would have loved to sit and relax there all night. Will be back
That specialize in terrific local produce, which is a great treat! THANKS!
The experience started by being seated in what I consider to have been the worst seat in the house. When I make a reservation I don’t consider a seat right in front of the door to be a prime location. Service and experience went down hill from there. My partner and I took a look at the menu and decided on an entire. My choice the Pan Seared Bass, his choice the Lobster Tail, only to later find out that we were given an out of date menu. “Sorry guys, we don’t have the Lobster tail.” From here we went with the catfish and Bass. Oh and forget about asking to substitute or add a side item, we were told that the kitchen was too busy for that. Wow, I’ve never heard of a thing, if it’s on the menu then the kitchen no matter how busy it is should be able to prepare it. Isn’t that the reason for dining out in the first place? Both of our meals were lackluster meals.
Overall this place sounds good, however when it comes to the culinary skills they are missing. The staff could use a couple of lessons in customer service as well.
Very nice meal and conducive to our business conversation.
The food and everything have been consistently delicious in the last half year I've gone to Watts. I've especially been delighted at the after dinner drinks - light but really tasty! and beautifully presented. But the fish has been good as well.
Impressive dinner and service on a busy night (Valentine's Day). We'll definitely return and are excited to find a new brunch spot!
I always love the food here. The Mac n cheese with lobster is so so so so so amazing. The lobster dish...omg...thr lobster is ocean perfect. If they increased their portions, i would eat here weekly.
My wife and I enjoyed our Valentine’s Day lunch. The food was very tasty and healthy. We will return to Watts Grocery soon.
Fantastic meal, as always. Watts never disappoints.
Terrific challenger to Vin Rouge for best brunch place. Tends to be a bit loud but not unbearable considering there are lots of kids.
I suggest to make a reservation if you are going on Sunday for brunch. Prompt service and really good food.
All was very tasty -- had lobster mac and cheese (could be a meal, not an appetizer), local braised lamb shank -- perfect.
Service was so so. Food was so so. Ok experience but expected better.
We had a great time celebrating restaurant-owner Amy Tornquist's late mother, Elizabeth, on the second anniversary of her unexpected death. Percentage of day's profit was contributed to an endowment in Elizabeth's name at the Nursing School at University of North Carolina. Lots of retired and currently involved staff from the Nursing School were there and that was fun.
While it does not (and hopefully never will) affect me, there are few (if any) vegetarian offerings on Watts Grocery's menu and I wish that would change. Otherwise, the options are excellent.
p.s. by "vegetarian" I mean "no flesh" (which includes fish)....nothing with eyeballs either.
We went to honor Amy's mother, and Amy welcomed us. Food and service were excellent as always and all of our desserts were FABULOUS.
