My family and I visit every few months as it's a great atmosphere, good food, and also a central meeting point for all of us to meet! We have always sat at the bar and had great salads, wine and appetizers. Last week we decided to sit at a booth and the food quality really changed. Not sure what’s going... More

I never take the time to write a review. Had an absolutely terrible experience! Chicken Francaise was thick and undercooked, sent dish back. Zuppa de Pesce was tough, suffered through it because we're starving. Kate, our waitress was amazing but that's the best thing I can say about the place.

This is a regular spot of ours in Cheshire. We prefer to eat at the bar or on the patio. This restaurant never seems crowded, yet the food is excellent. The fresh tuna salad with mango and avocado is my favorite! Other great choices are the meatball appetizer, clams with chorizo, or oysters. My boyfriend ordered the seabass special with... More

We go to the Waverly about four times a year for lunch and are never disappointed. The menu is small but diverse, the prices are decent and the service is good. The Waverly is an institution in town and is a nice place to enjoy a tasty lunch with friends or family. They also offer outdoor dining for those nice... More

A great place for locals to gather as well as travelers. With a dining side and a more relaxed bar side, you can choose. The bar offers table and booth style seating, as well as a seat at the bar. There is usually live music in the evening. Their menu is varied and you they have everything from salads to... More

We wanted a quite dinner and we got one. The house wine was OK. The salads were excellent I had the house salad with honey peppercorn. For dinner I had the ranch steak which was excellent and my friend had the stuffed shrimp. She said the stuffing was excellent. Just a little pricy. Just to note the bar area is... More

I went here for a retirement dinner and was very surprised by how big the place is on the inside. The interior was modern and the room for the party was spacious. Also the food was good and the staff were very attentive. I would recommend using this place for an event.

Friday night happy hour - my wife and I joined a couple of friends for an evening at the bar. Glad we picked the Waverly! All you can eat clams on the half shell sure hit the spot and entertainment to boot. This is an older crowd but the food is good, beer is cold and conversations grand! Great place... More

The Thanksgiving buffet was a huge disappointment! They scaled it way back from previous years! We always raved about their Thanksgiving buffet, but this year will be our last one at the Waverly Inn. I won't frequent it for a meal either. They served no fish entree or anything else for a vegetarian, no sweet potatoes on Thanksgiving (although they... More
