I don't mind the occasional splurge, and this isn't quite there anyway, but the food was disappointing. I had the wild salmon, which was a tasteless brick, and the boston bib salad, with almonds that must have been toasted in the 1970s. My friend had the crab cake, ate three bites of it, and gave up. The server couldn't care less about our experience. Neither my friend nor I will ever go back.

Probably the most disappointing restaurant in the neighborhood, especially for the price. My wife and I have wanted to try this place for a long time, but I wish we never did. The atmosphere is nice, but the food is subpar, and the prices are outrageous. Would not recommend.

As my wife just said I can't tell you the last time an appetizer and main course came out at the same time. We started out at the bar but ran into friends who joined us and we switched to a table. We had ordered our apps and main course from the bartender per his suggestion. I had a few beers and then switched to manhattans which our great waiter jason chose the whiskey and they were excellent. We got our apps and within two minutes got our entrees. Besides the fact that we got everything at the same time and it was incredibly overpriced the food was great. We started w the perogies and tuna tartare and had the burger and tilefish as mains. I can't complain about the food at all it was really good but the service was incredibly uneven. The waitstaff was great but our two interactions with the host / manager left a lot to be desired. Our friends we met loved their meals as well and we will be going back but hopefully the prices will drop and the host will be in a better mood.

We ordered the mac + cheese and broccoli raab to start, both were great. Maybe a bit small but REALLY good. For entrees, my gf ordered the Veg dish...it was wrapped in phyllo dough with portabellas and pesto...she was freaking out about how good it was and this girl knows good food. I ordered the duck...it was really good as well, but I was feeling like I shouldve gone with what she had. Both were amazing. Service couldve been a little bit better but no biggie...we were sitting outside and it was towards the end of the night. She really wants to go back and is still talking about the veg dish she had.

I love this place. I have had some incredible meals at Watty & Meg, and I love the go to grass fed hamburger on brioche!! I live in the neighborhood, and I have watched this restaurant grow from the day they opened. The food is always great, always fresh, and the staff is absolutely charming. The decor is old fashion and club like. Warm, cozy and inviting! This place is a class act!

We used to love Watty & Megs, but recently went and were shocked at how tiny the portions were. We asked the waitress, who informed us that they needed to reduce the sizes due to increased costs. Whatever! Charge me a little more. I don't want a plate with 3 leaves of arugula.

We tried it out for brunch. My first impression of the place is that it's cute. The decor is simple. It is larger than I thought. There is a dinning room at the front and a second dinning room in the back. I started with the gazpacho with lump crab garnish. When they say, "garnish", they mean it. I figured it would be a couple of bites. It was more like a teaspoon. The gazpacho itself was good. It was very smooth and liquid-like. I personally like my gazpacho to have more texture. I like to taste and feel the small bits of tomato, peppers, etc. But to its credit, it was very flavorful and refreshing. I then moved on to the Pinelands Farm burger. My girlfriend had the BBQ Long Island duck hash. My burger was good. I did order it medium rare and got it closer to medium. Good news was it was still very juicy and good. Keep in mind, they will charge you an extra dollar for sweet onions, cheese, bacon and/or avocado. So it adds up quickly. So what about the duck hash? The duck hash was cooked with the potatoes and flavored with a BBQ sauce over a bed of greens and topped with a sunnyside up duck egg. The egg was good. Overall it was pretty good. I found the BBQ sauce somewhat overpowering and a little too sweet. It really masked a lot of the duckiness of the duck - which is hard to do. It was very rich. All in all, I think the food was fine. The service was good. Our waitress was attentive though we were stuck in the second dining room. However, I walked away feeling like we had paid too much for a brunch for two. The food was good. But not sure it was worth the cost. That is why I am giving it two stars.
