This restaurant is a bit on the expensive side but you get GREAT food. Everything is fresh and mostly local. It is my favorite place to eat in Leavenworth! Save your money and treat yourselves to a delicious meal! Their meatloaf is fabulous!

We live in Leavenworth. We have given this restaurant many chances to review their service and food above a POOR rating. Can't do it. There is no reason to spend good money at The Watershed when there are so many better restaurants (food, service, price)...More

We decided to ditch the German food for the night and ate at the Watershed. The restaurant was nicely set out - plenty room between tables and the service was superb. We shared appetizers and every single thing was delicious and perfectly cooked. The wine...More
