New years day with friends. Fried pork belly with collards and fried black Eyed peas. Scallops with creamed cauliflower, pork chop with black eyed peas, fried catfish filet with succotash. All outstanding and properly seasoned. Hidden gem in Durham.

This was the first time in many years we've dined here; it's not close to home, but it is certainly worth the drive! I'm adding a picture of the scallops dish I ordered; served with roasted Brussel sprouts and served atop smashed and partially creamed cauliflower. Wonderful combination for a meal! Perfectly prepared portions and wonderfully displayed. Hubs ordered a... More

It was awesome. The catering company which is part of Watts Grocery cooked our thanksgiving meal, from the turkey to stuffing, gravy, soup, corned ham, cornbread... Outstanding job. The turkey the most moist and tender, I could not have done it better myself. We picked it up on Wednesday to serve on Thursday and Tammy told me it would be... More

Don't let the name confuse you. This is a very good restaurant not a market cafe. The staff was professional and attentive. The wine list and menu were varied enough to satisfy all palettes. The atmosphere which was casual provided us the opportunity to relax, have family conversation and enjoy our freshly prepared meals and adult beverages. A good time... More

Whether you order soup, quiche, a sandwich or a full entrée you'll be delighted with what you order. Sunday brunch is also a MUST!

Watts Grocery was a welcome surprise. Not long before closing hours we found Watts Grocery with its artsy setting, interesting menu, nice wine list, and professional service. Four of us shared around the table, with the hits being the light-as-a feather shrimp fritters, clams with chorizo in a perfectly spicy broth, and rich and tasty mac and cheese. A grilled... More

The service is always excellent and personable the setting comforting and the food very, very good with lots of variety from one season to the next. Watts is our comfort restaurant and the place we go to feel at home in Durham. Highly recommended.

Tasty food. Excellent onion rings! Fried shrimp Cobb salad was very good, but the greens could have been fresher. Ahi Tuna sandwich was delicious, but difficult to eat; The steak kept falling apart. Service was cheerful and attentive.

What more can you ask? If you go out to a restaurant, you want delicious food! Watts provides! The Sunday brunch is incredible. We had the Juevos Rancheros and the country ham benedict...yummmmmm We also had the blood orange mimosas. Make a reservation! It fills up fast! Don't miss it!
