This is one of the better casual restaurants in Waterbury. The draft and bottled beer selection is excellent ,superb variety and the menu lets you know the type, ABV, the rating, and whether or not it is a Vermont product. The lunch menu has a wide selection with some great salads, hamburgers, sweet potato fries, etc. The dinner menu adds... More

Kids excited by popcorn machine in back room. Pleasantly surprised at the cool/friendly atmosphere and interesting menu. Waitress was great...food was great. Mom and... More

I like to go to The Rez when I am in the Waterbury area. The food is simple bar food with a clean finish. The beer is great. But what really makes this restaurant/bar is the staff. They are always pleasant and accommodating. I have never sat in this frequently crowded restaurant and been ignored. Someone always bops by with... More

We followed the advice of others and sat on the back deck. My husband ordered a premium beer sampler. Our waitress sort of said "hmmm" about one of his choices. Well, when it came it was weird and he admitted she was right. She offered to swap it out and came right back with something she picked which was great.... More

Service was professional, amazing selection of beers, and the food was typical pub style with a twist. Loved my veggie black bean burger with panko, and cumin mayo. We plan on stopping by every time we find ourselves driving down to Boston. Cute restaurant in a lovely part of town!

If you're a beer drinker, you'll love this. I don't like beer but they had two great ciders, so that works for me! Our waitress was great, and the food was amazing. We both ate more than we planned to! I had the salmon, with basil rice and shaved brussel sprouts, amazing!! My husband got a burger and said it... More

Went here on the recommendation of a local gentleman who works/volunteers at the welcome center in the depot with Green Mountain Coffee. Seated right away (1 pm, Sunday), bar atmosphere. Waitress was quick, attentive and helpful when it came to picking our drinks. I got a flight of the local beers ($7 for 4 - 5 oz pours). It was... More

I have been going to this restaurant for many years. Good atmosphere, generally good service and reasonable prices. One criticism however is the beer pours. On multiple occasions I have noticed that draft beer is served in less ounces than indicated on the menu. I ordered the Hill stead Blonde stated as 16oz in the menu. The glass was clearly... More

I can assure you we are not trying to short our customers and value ourselves on pricing our food and drink at prices that are competitive and fair. We also include the sales tax in our... More
