A nice brewpub producing good beers (some well above average). The food is good too; the spicy wings in particular were delicious. Watch City is on a street corner in the centre of town and the brewing kit is to the left of the door. Itís quite spacious inside, open and airy but a bit noisy. Thereís a central bar with lots of tables on all sides and several large clocks - all showing different times - on the walls. The last time I went there we had a great evening with Mike and Will, finishing up at the Gaff (also on the main street). (Last visited 26 October 2012).

Nice little brewpub. The food is average and typical but the beers were tasty. They had a homebrew contest winner tapped that was an IPA with spearmint. It was interesting but I couldnít drink a full pint. I also had a nice porter, well spiced winter and mid level stout. Good knowledgeable service and a beer engine.

Awesome place. Great beer, great food, great atmosphere, gret music, and most of all, fantastic beer. The FNA imperial IPA and imperial stout were amazing, definitely worth seeking out. I had a steak sandwich, which is usually tough and chewy, but here the steak was beautifully tender, it melted in my mouth. I canít reccomend this place enough.

Average place is the best I can say. Food was good, however nothing wowed me. About 10 of their beers on tap. Again nothing special, but all decent. Good cask and nitro options.

Swung by on my way back from New Hampshire. The place has a huge bar with a nice tap selection. Curretly, they have a Tripel, Saison, Belgian IPA, Scotch Ale, and several of their flagship brews on tap. Staff is friendly, prices are reasonable, typical pub feel to it. I didnít have a chance to try the food, but will definitely be back.

Pleasant, long-established downtown brewpub. Looks like it may have been converted from a shop. Island bar with seating areas either side. Efficient staff. Decent pub food (half price appetizers 4-6 weekdays). Beers were generally solid but unspectacular. Not helped by the fact that, with 8 beers on tap, not one was an IPA or a stout/porter. Also, unfortunately the cask stout had finished and the cask IPA, which was next up, had not yet been put on. I know they do a very wide range of beers so I was probably just unlucky with timing.

Solid brewpub, away from Boston and near a major highway. Attractive medium sized place, staff knowledge of the beers was passable. I would not call this a friendly place, but people were relaxed and staff was on top of it. In a word, good beer is the reason to be here. Nothing floored me, but it was a solid lineup between the stout, scotch, and IPA, and a totally different stout was on cask. It is also a short drive to two Gordon Liquor locations, another plus if you are just passing through, like us. Must stop if you are in the area.

Arrived there at closing time, but they let us in for a pint, or, in this case, the sample, which was 7$ for 4 samples (I got an extra one for free). Place is quite nice, designed around the bar (which did look a bit grubby, but thats OK). The selection is interesting, with half regulars (4) and half seasonals (4). Havent tried the food, which was pub grub oriented. A nice place to go when in Waltham.

Decent beer. Lots of specials - half of the taps were specials/seasonals, the other five were their regular beers. We just ordered appetizers and samplers of beer. The food we had was tasty. The best part about the place was that it was so kid friendly - they even have a play area and toys in the back, towards the restrooms. This was a nice compared to some other kid-unfriendly brewpubs Iíve been to.
