Just up the road from Montague Center, at the corner of Greenfield Rd and Turners Falls Rd, remains a small grist mill from 1834 on the Sawmill River. Overlooking the river, you’ll find a small conglomerate of locally owned shops and eateries, which provides a scenic getaway any day of the year.
In February, the restaurant formerly known as The Alvah Stone, changed hands and reopened under the name Watershed Restaurant. Watershed is a local gathering place which serves up delicious food made with local ingredients. One of their most recent summer dishes is a house smoked half chicken from Diemand Farm served with jasmine rice and seasonal veggies. They also serve dessert from Humble Peach in Amherst, which right now is a 100% plant-based, gluten-free blueberry cheesecake.
All of their meals can be enjoyed on the deck overlooking the Sawmill River, surrounded by lush trees. The scenery is so peaceful and beautiful, it feels like a small getaway from reality.
At Watershed Restaurant, you’ll likely also encounter live music from many local acts and musicians. Most recently, they’ve hosted Aden Gray, a local singer/songwriter, and Paula Moore, a harpist, during brunch hours.
With beautiful scenery, fresh and tasty cuisine, and live music to entertain, Watershed Restaurant has it all.
