Hi Friends!

Branch Line is a neighborhood rotisserie and wood fired grill in the Watertown Arsenal built on a foundation of personalized hospitality.

Featuring a year-round patio. Branch Line offers something for everyone. Twenty taps continuously change and offer a great craft beer selection, while a curated wine list features bottles that are value-driven and also ready for any special occasion.

The Crystal Valley Rotisserie Chicken spins and roasts in sight of nearly every table in the dining room while the fire roars under vegetables, fish, and meat. The "Little Chicken" menu is great for kids, too!

    I have taken my family here multiple times on weekends and weekdays. My last time was probably my least favorite. Server was training and had way too many tables. Drinks took 10 minutes to reach us. The bar was overwhelmed with a Tuesday event outside. The food was good and ambiance was good as always. May have just been an off night.

    We sat outside which was a bit breezy. The food was great. I had mushroom risotto, very creamy and flavorful.

    Amazing service but some of the items we selected were not great. Great selections: Grilled banana bread Chicken sandwich Sticky bun Fries Ham Crab cake Not great: Home fries-too much thyme Pretzels-soft in the middle and rock hard on the ends
