Horrible experience! I do not recommend. My family made a reservation at Watts Grocery on Sunday at 2:15pm. Upon arrival, we had to wait 10 minutes before a host came to the stand to check us in. We then had to wait another 10 minutes for him to prepare a table for us. After we ordered our food, we were notified 15 minutes later that the restaurant ran out of half of the meals we ordered. We then proceeded to wait over an hour for our food but our waiter said that our food wasn't even started at that point. We ended up leaving the restaurant before we received our food. There wasn't a manager in sight and we hardly saw our waiter. The service was horrible as well as the wait time. The atmosphere was dirty as well.

We have long been fans of Watts Grocery but we’re pretty disappointed with this recent visit. This place really needs to be more kid friendly. There are always lots of families. While the host was helpful in getting us a table to best accommodate our infant car seat it was really frustrating not to find any changing table in either of the bathrooms. There is plenty of room and there is not really any reason not to have this cheap addition. The blood orange mimosas were great, pancakes, Green Fried Tomato BLT, and Eggs Benedict were spectacular. The sausage was...very disappointing. It was dried out and looked like it was just microwaved from a premade Jimmy Dean frozen package. It is not that hard to make good sausage and they failed. I would go back but they are slipping on my list of places especially since we will have kids in diapers for the next few years.

Very disappointed. We walked in off the street no one approached us for an unreasonable amount of time. There was no host/hostess at what appeared to be the host/hostess stand. We finally got someone's attention and asked ~availability of seating for 2 for dinner. They said they'd have to check with the manager. We were left waiting AGAIN for an unreasonable amount of time. A phone rang near the host stand a gentleman came, answered it was on the phone with someone inquiring about brunch for the next day.... finally when he got off the phone I got HIS attention. He didn't ask if he could help us. He offered us a seat at the bar, a price for a believe was a 3 course meal, definitely more than I would want to pay for the privilege of sitting at the bar... I will not be returning

The chicken and biscuits were delicious. The gravy they smother it in is very buttery and full of flavor. The server was friendly. The restaurant has a comfortable feel and is not very big. The only issue was the 45 minute wait for the six of us to receive our meals after ordering. We were advised it was due to what they said was having a small fryer to prepare the chicken. I would go back to try some other dishes.

I loved the eggs Benedict with grits. My husband didn’t like his fried chicken, biscuits and gravy as much as Bojangles (but he says they have high standards 😊).

Excellent service and delicious brunch! Their coffee is really flavorful and strong! I stayed a little longer to enjoy the coffee and nice atmosphere. Our waiter Sean was very friendly and kind. He even offered a free cupcake for our dessert!
