Still, our go-to pub within 15 miles in Vermont

I reviewed the Res 2 years ago and after returning again last night, had to give them kudos for keeping up with all the aspects which make them a great pub and restaurant. The Shed Burger (i snuck a few bites from my wife's) was delicious as always and cooked the temperature she requested. I had... read more

You know how sometimes you watch food Porn reality tv shows all slack jawed & drooling on the couch? Now imagine you could stand up & step through the TV & just bathe in it.. That is how it feels to eat here. They have over 17 beers on tap rated above a 90 on beer advocate. That's just the... More

very nice waitstaff and the burgers are great too! Love the beer! It can be loud in there, but it is sectioned off with an out door patio too.

My boyfriend and I had dinner here for the first time. We arrived around 5pm. We were greeted immediately by the host. Once at our table, we were quickly greeted by our waitress. I wish I took note of her name, so I could give her credit for her excellent service! (Glasses, shaved hair, extremely friendly). Our food was delivered... More

We ate here twice during a five night stay in the Waterbury area in March. Just an amazing place, people were waiting for tables on both a Sunday and Wednesday night (after our first meal we would’ve had gladly waited on our second visit). Comfortable casual atmosphere, with a laid-back yet efficient and professional vibe. Mind-blowing beer selection (at least... More

I cannot say enough positive things about The Reservoir. The farm to table menu offers an excellent variety of choices and I find it difficult to keep exploring the menu options without falling back on the same great thing I had the last time. The staff has always been pleasant even though they are running non-stop. An incredible beer selection... More

Visited with husband and tween sons on Easter Sunday. Meant to eat at the Prohibition Pig but it was closed for the holiday. The atmosphere and service were fantastic. As usual the food, like other places in Vermont, was spectacular. Highly recommended with a quick trip to Ben & Jerry's for dessert!

My friends and have visited Reservoir a couple times this winter and had already had a lovely time. The food is interesting and excellent and the service is spot on. You can sit at the bar and get full food service so this is quite helpful if you can grab a seat on those busy nights. They offer free popcorn... More

Our B&B hosts suggested we try The Reservoir if the wait was to long at Pro Pig. It was and we're glad we did. While there was a wait for tables, we snagged two seats at the bar right in front of a row of taps -- craft beer nirvana. I couldn't resist ordering a new favorite, Long Trail's Limbo... More
