Jake Gyllenhaal, in Atlanta filming the movie "Prisoners" with Hugh Jackman, was spotted at Watershed in Atlanta Saturday night.

The upscale Southern comfort spot is a hit with visiting celebrities. Jennifer Lawrence was seen there last summer while she was in town filming the "Hunger Games" sequel "Catching Fire." Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth, who were here filming "Devil's Knot," were seen there, too. Jane Fonda's a big fan as well.

Anyway, back to Jake. He and a guest enjoyed Watershed's Uptown Martini with oysters, steak tartare, jambalaya, lamb ragout, coconut cake, sweet potato creme brûlée and hot milk cake. He plays a detective in "Prisoners," a crime thriller about the hunt for two young girls after they're abducted. Jackman is a carpenter, and father of one of the girls. The movie also stars Viola Davis, Paul Dana and Melissa Leo. It's been filming in Conyers.
