There is a friendly ambiance to this place that has been around for a long time. It is sort of a bar/pizza joint which serves a lot of other foods, however their pizza is below average at best.

This restaurant is located next to the Jefferson County Fair grounds and is a classic Italian restaurant. The staff are very helpful, the atmosphere somewhat old fashion in a positive way, and the food is plentiful and delicious. Prices are reasonable and reservations are not accepted. First come are first served and it can get crowded.

I have tried this place twice. Food is just ok, wait staff is the worst I have ever had in my life. I wish I could say something better. Don't waste your money. If you think this place is good you don't have and good seance.

Passing through Watertown, we picked this place based on TripAdvisor reviews. For the most part we were not disappointed. Place was packed at 5 pm on a weekday night. We saw that most people were choosing that day's special - a prime rib. Service was fast and friendly. We chose veg nachos as an appetizer and a large pizza to... More

Didn't impress me. The food seemed like warmed up frozen entries. Waited a while but it was empty, mostly. Not going back. I tried it twice and same thing. Tired food.

This is one of the best places to eat in Watertown. They have great food, great service, a bar area and you can play quick draw if you enjoy that too. I would tell anyone to go there !

My wife and I have come here for over 20 years. The pasta, pizza, sandwiches and entrees are always good. It's not fancy just an old style family Italian restaurant. This summer we did have a below average lunch but I'm hoping it was just a rare bad day

Having read the great reviews my wife and I wanted to try the Fairgrounds Inn. And we are glad we did. Delicious fare for a reasonable price. Well worth the visit.
