I enjoyed my visit to not Watson‘s last evening. I had the chicken and waffles, overall it was good. The other couple had fish and chips, they said the chips were very salty. The cocktails were average.

Visited on Jan 1, 2019. I had the salmon spinach salad which was fresh and tasty. My hub had the turkey burger and we both feasted on the fried green tomatoes. They don’t blend their margaritas but are generous with their tequila. Yum.
