Maverick’s Steakhouse is Watertown’s newest restaurant. Its location — in the Goss Opera House — is perfect. Maverick’s offers new flavors while staying true to Watertown’s homestyle roots. The menu features VanWell lamb chops prepared to perfection and craft cocktails made from locally distilled spirits. Visiting local favorite North Shore Chophouse is a must during your visit. Soak in panoramic shoreline views of beautiful Lake Kampeska while enjoying delightful dining, drinks and conversation. No hard decisions or bad seats here, because you can top off your evening enjoying an amazing sunset from the patio or any seat in the house.


Start your artsy adventure downtown at the elegant Goss Opera House. The Goss, as it’s known, has been a stunning Watertown gem since its construction in 1889, and a recent renovation has made the gorgeous finishing touches even more beautiful. Hear the gripping tale of how the unshakable Charles Goss kept the purpose of the building a secret, surprising the town after his last opera house burned down. Browse the calendar for an upcoming show you’ll never forget.


Outdoors, Watertown has plenty to keep you busy. Glimpse the fall colors around Lake Kampeska or take a ride on the 30-mile bike trail. Anglers love the nearby glacial lakes, where walleye and perch are the catch du jour. Along the shore, two lakeside golf courses offer gorgeous views of the water. When the day’s adventures are done, recharge at your favorite hotel brand.
