Video: The Watershed Offers Dining & Boat Rides in Tempe Lakes

The Watershed is situated on a 52 acre lake with over 4,000 square feet of lakeside patio and a spacious interior that boasts lake views from every seat. We pride ourselves on providing a unique, vacation-like experience in the heart of Tempe. Scratch Cooking, 20 Drafts, Inspired Cocktails, Boat Rides, Games, Flat Screens, Entertainment and ample parking are just a few of the many features you’ll discover that make The Watershed the ideal location to bring your next party, event or fundraiser.

Centrally located in The Valley, we’re the Lakehouse in the city! We are situated on one of the most unique locations in The East Valley. We are locally owned. We’re not part of the neighborhood, we’re your neighbor. Get to know us!

The name, “The Watershed,” gets inspiration from the watersheds of the southwest. John Wesley Powell (yes, the Lake Powell, Powell) defined a watershed as, ‘That area of land, a bounded hydrologic system, within which all living things are inextricably linked by their common water course and where, as humans settled, simple logic demanded that they become part of a community.” That’s what we strive to be: a place where people come together to meet, to eat, to cheers, to sing, to dance, to rekindle, to relax and revel in the moment. We sincerely look forward to hosting you and allowing for a memorable experience.
