The place was cool but the menu seemed limited. I had the cheese steak and it was good. The fries seemed hand cut but not double fried.

This resto was recommended to us and found the food to be average as well as ambience. Live music. Staff was pleasant enough.

This cozy little tap room offers a good selection of comfort food with a twist. I had their house made veggie burger and loved it. My husband had the fish and chips. Equally good. I ordered a wine flight and let my waitress pick the samples after telling her the kinds of beer I liked. Really enjoyed the selection. My... More

Great Pub - style restaurant in Waterbury. Hamburgers are made from local beef and are scrumptious (also 1/2 lb). The salmon tacos (blackened ) sets a standard for great food in Vermont. 39 draft craft beers and a reasonably priced wine choice makes The Reservoir a culinary destination not to be missed. Can't wait for a return visit.

I make it a point to visit The Reservoir on each visit. I'm hooked on the chorizo tacos & both types of fish tacos. If you're lucky enough to visit on a nice day, the outdoor deck provides an amazing mountain view too.

This is a new fave for me. Great everything and I felt really comfortable sitting at the bar. It's an every one is welcome kind of place. There were people of all ages there - 20's to 60's. a definite yes for lunch or dinner.

My husband had the flat iron and he is very picky about his steak. He is still talking about how well cooked it was and how his whole late was perfect. I had the spaghetti squash with pesto and veggies. It was so amazing. I make spaghetti squash at home but never with a cream sauce. It was so good... More

Who knew a bar could have such good tacos? The chorizo tacos and fish tacos were delicious! Beer was great, too. A nice spot for lunch!

We were staying at a nearby B&B and ate here one evening after trying Arvad's the night before. It is next door to Arvads and on the main street in Waterbury so we parked on the street. It was not busy when we arrived so we were seated right away and the waitress came by for drink orders quickly. There... More

Wonderful craft beer selection. Food menu is great. Tried the avocado fries and thought they were pretty good. Had the pulled pork sandwich and enjoyed it very much. Service was very good and prices are reasonable.
