The Watershed

If we told you this water-side restaurant resides in Tempe, you might assume it perches on Tempe’s largest body of water, Tempe Town Lake. However, it actually sits on a man-made lake south of Baseline between Rural and McClintock.

The Watershed features a water-side patio that seats 200, and even maintains a boat for aquatic excursions. For food, it serves Modern American style, from grilled burgers and wings to gumbo and green chile meatloaf. It also includes a bar that serves wine and boasts 20 beers on tap.

Address: 5350 S. Lakeshore Dr. Tempe, AZ
Phone: (480) 756-0508
