Father’s Day at The Watershed, Haslett

Yesterday was Father’s Day. And since I got to pick what restaurant we were going eat at, I chose The Watershed, literally just down the street from us in Haslett.

There were two reasons. One, it was a local restaurant, and I wanted to keep my money nearby. And two, I’ve enjoyed the food on previous visits – good food that wasn’t part of a chain.

I’ve had the nachos before, but I was in the mood, and I’m glad I was – they were excellent. First off, the chips were quite salty, a bit plus in my books. There were lots of meat and cheese, the former being very good – it was straight ground beef, not chile, and cooked perfectly. Just the right amount of veggies along with sour cream and salsa.

In the background is a 25 oz. Bell’s Oberron. They didn’t have a Blue Moon I asked for on tap, but the waiter mentioned they have Oberron, which was even better –  I have Michigan beer when I can.

My daughter had the chicken strips and fries, which were also very good. I plan on trying a burger on my next visit just to get the fries, but I have no doubt that the burger will be very good too.

As an aside, Monday nights The Watershed has $1 12 oz. Labatt on special – that’s a great deal, and I stop in every once in a while to take advantage of it. I considered keeping that to myself, but hopefully it will tempt a few of you to visit my hometown restaurant.
