Searched this place out online and so glad to have tried it. Perfect quaint outdoor area. Cold craft beer. Oyster PoBoy and Tuna Sandwich excellent. Server was excellent.

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,...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!

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.

Watts Grocery continues to shine, however, last week the chef was very heavy-handed with the salt. I had the ribeye with squash gratin and garlic green beans. The steak was cooked to a perfect temperature, but was far too salty.The duck breast was too salty...More
