Watertown Party Bus

Watertown, New York is a wonderful place to visit, and when your travels bring you here, you can rely on this list of great restaurants and bars for your dining and drinking needs! All of these listed below, our personal favorites, can be found within the 13601, 13602, and 13603 zip codes. Please enjoy!

Cam's New York Pizzeria is just a small unassuming pizzeria with a cute awning outside with the NYC skyline protruding from it, but inside you will find some of the most delicious pizza in Watertown! The slices are just huge here, and so flavorful. We really enjoy their spicy wings, and they have a special that lets you get the pizza and wings together at a reduced price. Very nice! Note that the large pizzas are beyond large, they are enormous! Everybody loves that about this place and they are kind of known for it. The white pizza is probably our favorite here, and we would recommend that you get sausage on any pizza because it's always so flavorful. They have great calzones here, very large and really stuffed full. The garlic knots are fantastic.

1025 Ruyi Japanese Steak House is one of the most beautiful places to dine in Watertown. We absolutely adore the subdued lighting, the cozy booths, and the outstanding service. Of course, the food is divine. The sushi is very good, really good quality, and it's fun to sit at the sushi bar and watch the chefs prepare their masterpieces. They have very good miso soup and green tea here too. This isn't the most authentic restaurant around, and it's not the kind of quality that you would find in NYC, but it's a definite change of pace from the usual Asian fare in this area, and this is the best Japanese restaurant in Watertown. All of the tempura rolls are really delicious here, just perfectly done, and we love their green dragon roll too. Excellent hibachi fare and steaks too! Recommended!

Crystal Restaurant  is a very nice place for some home cooked American food. We're not sure how long this place has been standing, but it feels like it's been there a good long while, and we love that retro vibe. Most of the food here is the kind of thing that you would find at any typical diner, but again it's all home cooked and really delicious. One item that really stands out for us is the asparagus fries. We've had them every time we've been here and probably always will! They're so good. The coffee is always good too, and we love coming in to warm up with a hot mug of it when the weather is cold. The service is really outstanding and the restaurant is just so comfortable. Always a great place to go for a relaxed meal in a really charming atmosphere!

Apollo Restaurant is of course a Greek restaurant, a small comfortable diner situated in a strip mall. Don't let the exterior put you off, it's very nice and comfy inside. They've got delicious gyros here (try the smothered one!) that are incredibly moist and juicy, and there is just such a huge variety of types of gyros here. They deserve an award for that! They're so plentiful. There's also a very tasty spaghetti done Greek style that will really satisfy your tastebuds and your tummy. There are some nice options here for the vegetarian crowd as well. The Greek sampler platter features a lot of our favorites, like grape leaves, meats, feta cheese, and hommous. The moussaka is also fantastic here, and we are big fans of that. For dessert we'd very highly recommend the baklava ice cream! Too good to believe.

Maggie's On The River is our favorite sports bar in Watertown, and we'd venture to say that most of the Watertown locals would agree with us! It's nice here, nothing fancy, but nicely decorated and kept very clean, and we love the fact that the drinks are super cheap and strong, and that they have pool tables. They've got a lot of local craft brews and microbrews for you to enjoy, and that's a plus too. In total, more than 40 beers on tap! It's true that it gets pretty packed in here and when it does, the service can slow down quite a bit. Your best bet is to head upstairs to the second or third floor when that happens, it will be quieter and the service will be better. Dinners are very good here too.

Texas Roadhouse is one of the few chain restaurants that we'll really recommend, and the reason for that is that the food is just so good and we enjoy the over the top "everything's bigger in Texas" kind of motif. The bread and honey cinnamon butter is a huge hit with everybody that dines here, and you will definitely find yourself fixating on that for a while before your dinner arrives! Yum! The fried catfish is one of our favorite things here, and we also really enjoy the steaks that they're known for! We'd recommend the Dallas cut most highly, it's very tender and lean and they cook it to order just perfectly, which of course goes for all the steaks. Note that the wait can be excessively long at certain times, so try to hit this one when it's not so crazy busy!

Art's Jug is a wonderful Italian restaurant run by the Sboro family, and it's no question that this is some of the finest home cooked Italian food that you can obtain in the area. Everyone just loves it. The Montreal Flatiron is one of our favorite things here, and we also really enjoy their pizzas and their stuffed flounder. We love the fact that you can get spaghetti with your dinner instead of the typically requisite "fries or mashed." You get a basket of delicious Italian bread to nosh on while you wait for your meal, and they have a nice selection of beers to keep you busy too. Very good crust on the pizza, just the perfect flavor to the sauce too, and excellent toppings. Our ultimate favorite entree is the chicken limone, and we would very highly recommend that to you. Always a wonderful time!

Koreana Restaurant is of course a Korean restaurant, and though there's not much to look at here, the food and the service are really out of this world. They have some of the best dumplings that we have ever had, and we love their beef bulgogi and the kimchi. The bibimbap is also wonderful here, and they have a seafood casserole that is a very nice choice as well. One of the best things about this place is the price. For all that excellent food, the price doesn't even come close to what you'd imagine you'd be paying. You'll be pleasantly shocked when the bill comes. Definitely one of our favorite places to dine in Watertown, and very highly recommended to you!

Wing Wagon has been called a "wing mecca," and we would certainly agree with that statement! They've recently undergone some major renovations, and if you were used to their former ambiance which wasn't much to look at, you owe it to yourself to head on over there and check out the new digs. Well, same digs, but new style. You know what we mean. We really love the sauces that they have here, some of the best barbecue sauce in town and also the hot wings are just amazing. Just the perfect amount of heat. The wings are so famous that the pizza is sometimes overlooked here, but it is excellent and very highly recommended! This is our essential place to pick up our Super Bowl wings, but remember to call early and place that order because everybody else in town knows how good it is too! Truly one of the best, we just love this place!

Tico's Mex Mex Grill is a great place to go when you want something good and spicy! We really love their white queso with chips, and their enchiladas are also really noteworthy. For some reason there seem to be a lot of negative reviews online for this one, but we have been here many times over the years and we have never had a negative experience! We love to come in later in the evening and enjoy their full bar, and on a certain night of the week they even have live mariachi music for you to enjoy. The staff is very friendly and conscientious, always doing a great job. Their rice and beans are very good, and the chips and salsa are nice too. Check this one out for yourself!
