The ribs are amazing, served with fresh crisp coleslaw and handmade fries. Service is efficient and friendly. This wonderful taphouse and grille is spotlessly clean and follows COVID protocols to the letter. The atmosphere is upscale and welcoming. We enjoyed a wonderful "date night" meal and will enthusiastically support this great place as often as we can.

Well spaced tables on their lovely patio with great service and terrific food. It’s a nice quiet patio where you can relax and feel safe. My friend and I enjoyed the Cadbury salad which is an all-time favorite.

I just felt that the service was very slow initially although the waitress got the orders completely correct.

We had coconut shrimp appetizers and the cauliflower. Both very deep fried and bordering on burnt. I though the pricing was a little high for a mediocre place.

Server was great. Outdoor dining was provided with heaters. This was terrific with the Covid situation. Food menu is very diverse. Not just the usual Pub food.

Thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

Nice clean patio, not to noisey, but was busy for a Wednesday noon.
I wasn’t happy with my choice today, but usually their food is good.
Service is always friendly and good.
I would like cheaper prices, for lunch.

We always enjoy the Watermark and we were extra happy to be accommodated inside at a booth as rain was predicted for the time of our reservation. Kim is our favorite server and always attentive. The food is hot and fresh for the right price. We are regulars for all of these reasons.

This was a first-time visit to the Watermark and my husband and I enjoyed the patio seating. We felt safely distanced from other diners. Our server was friendly and efficient, and seemed knowledgeable in the responses she gave to my gluten-free options, as I have Celiac disease. My husband ordered the brisket and I had the chicken souvlaki, both of which were excellent. We both found the portions to be large, especially as we both tend to eat small portions, but we certainly had lots of food left to take home and enjoy again. We'd like to go back and check out the interior of the restaurant at a future visit, and try some of the other items on the menu.

I know most people reading this do not have dietary restrictions and I'm not one of those people who expect all restaurants to cater to mine. If a restaurant cannot accommodate my dietary requirements I go somewhere else. No complaints. But when a restaurant advertises gluten free ribs on their website I assume they have taken steps to accommodate people who are gluten intolerant.

I have been on the hunt for gluten free ribs and specifically chose this restaurant on my birthday because they advertised that they serve them. But the ribs are served with fries fried in a deep fryer used to fry other gluten products, so I can't have those. And there's an up-charge to substitute for another side. And most of the appetizers are made of gluten, or contain gluten, or are fried in a fryer contaminated with gluten, so I can't have any of those. So why advertise you have gluten free ribs at all? Most people don't care, and those who do are going to expect some consideration for gluten intolerance and dietary restrictions.

The service was great, the sangria was amazing, and what we could eat was delicious but I doubt we'll be back. I want to eat at a restaurant where I feel intolerances were considered while the menu was being created, not have to pick and choose a random assortment of items that are safe for me to eat.
