The best calamari steaks you will ever eat!

This is the only place that knows how to make a calamari steak, period. Always tender with excellent breading. Get there early for dinner because the place fills up fast and you may need to wait.

Great place for great food and a fun time. Would recommend to all my friends. The place is awesome and the bar is also worth going for.

If you want "fancy," Waterloo is probably not your place. If you want fun, funky and good food then Waterloo is the place to go. And if you're a Giants fan...even better. Waterloo does killer ribs; dynamite appetizers (the mushrooms in bread bowl are divine!) and pesto that is just plain good. Waterloo also does a BBQ pork sandwich that... More

We tried this place based on some recommendations from friends. Have to say that it definitely was not the wonderful place they described. The food was average in taste and definitely over priced. The dining experience was just ok too as the tables felt like they squeezed in as many as they possibly could. Overall it wasn't terrible just not... More

We were taken the Waterloo by friends on a Friday evening. We arrived just before 6:00 PM. The patio area was taken over by a private party and all the tables were filled or reserved (parties of 7 or more). We were finally seated around 7:00 PM. The wait staff was excellent and very helpful. I ordered ribs (house speciality),... More

This is a great gem! The place was packed due to the Giants playoff game. The wait staff and bar staff went above and beyond to keep all patrons stocked and restocked! The bell was rung everytime the Giants scored and could be heard throughout the restaurant and at the outside patio dining area. It was loud! This was not... More

Waterloo is famous for its ribs (has its own BBB sauce) and pesto...but what's especially good are the daily lunch specials. My favorite is on Thursday with shredded pork on open face sandwich with brown gravy, mashed potatoes, and corn...yes, you might need a nap afterwards.

The atmosphere is loud and great fun. Definitely not a Biker Bar but has that "feeling" without the attendant down sides, just the noise and laughter. My favorite is the clam chowder. Members of my family and friends are quite "mad" for the ribs and shrimp scampi. Garlic bread is a good choice too. We come to Waterloo Inn for... More

This restaurant is a little out of the way but well worth the drive. The restaurant/bar is an older building and when you pull up you start to ask yourself “Really?” But when you step into the restaurant you see a lot of old memorabilia and happy faces. The menu is limited but the food is very good. The evening... More
