We were heading home and passing through Waterbury, VT when we elected to get some food. There are several great choices in Waterbury, but we wanted to try some place where we hadn't been before. The Reservoir is excellent. We were able to get a...More

This restaurant was recommended by our hosts at The Old Stagecoach Inn. Seems to be a very popular place. We had an excellent dinner and great service. Would definitely go back if we venture to Waterbury again.

We stopped for lunch and a beer while at the Arts Show. We really liked the menu as it offered a nice variety with some unique offerings; like fried avocado sticks. So, I would definitely stop in again for lunch or dinner.

The pulled pork with BBQ sauce is virtually inedible due to the over saturation of vinegar. You can't take a bite without the vinegar fumes overwhelming your nose. Lemonade is so sour that you can't drink it. Staff was friendly, but not attentive. We never...More

I think you are asking the restaurant this question, but It is a popular spot and is gets busier as the evening goes by.
