The location of this place is interesting in Waltham. It's located on Moody Street, which is the dining center of Waltham. At the end of the street near the bridge sits Watch City Brewery. It is spacious inside, high ceilings, airy, and not busy when I was there on a Saturday night. I sat at the bar and it was pleasant. The two beers I tried: one was a standard - the pale ale - and it was good, quite hoppy, fresh, a little on the sweet side, with a bit of a hoppy bite on the back end. The other beer I had was a special - chocolate porter - this one claims to be brewed with 55 pounds of Belgian chocolate. The chocolate was noticeable, but more pronounced was the coffee flavor. If you enjoy coffee, you may appreciate this one more than I did. Not a bad beer, but not my cup of tea. One thing I will say about the chocolate porter is that it has an incredible frothy head. The bartender had to pour the top off this at least 4 times to get the beer close to the rim of the pint glass. It was a challenge, and the froth just kept on coming. That was the most enjoyable part of the experience. This is a nice place, if you are in Waltham for dinner and want to have a beer afterwards.

Very disappointed in the beer selection available. Didn't even have their flagship beers??? Website not updated with offerings. Service was a little better than average but it was pretty dead in there. I had the steak and cheese and my wife had a cheeseburger, both were very good. We went for the beer, not the food, and were surprised by both.
