Great food...casual/comfortable family atmosphere. Prices are reasonable. The house salad dressing is a must if you go. You won't be disappointed. Highly recommend The Fairgrounds Inn

This is a great restaurant with a huge menu. Most of the patrons appear to be locals and Sandra my server treated me like family. My food was hot and fresh, and appears to be homemade. Worth the trip.

friendly atmosphere, good portions and fairly priced. We ate dinner there twice recently, happy with the quality and the pricing. As we stated family dining,, not fine dining.

First time here with family, place is a little dark but we had a nice table by a window. Food was very good, enjoyed the covered meatball sandwich, which was tasty and quite filling. An overall good experience

We have eaten here twice when in town visiting. Great homemade soups, and specialty sandwiches as well as traditional Italian dishes.

We have been many times this summer and enjoy it immensely. We usually sit in the bar so we can eat and play quickdraw. It's always fun. Service is great. Staff are knowledgeable and engaging. Food arrives quickly and is plentiful and delicious.

Great restaurant for Italian food in Watertown. Varied menu but their pasta specialties are outstanding. Always choose several specials and mix them up

I really like the food at The Fairgrounds, but have resorted to take-out every time because of consistently bad service. Friday fish w/mac and cheese is delicious, and the Barracks Inn salad is good too.

We have gone to FGI for years. Always enjoy the food, staff, and always see someone we know eating there. A lot of the staff has been there for years and are always willing to accommodate. Can always go on lunch hour and still get...More

We have been coming here for years and it has always been good. We made reservations and when we arrived the restaurant was extremely busy but we did not have to wait. We were seated right away all 11 of us.
