Don't go late

Everything we ate was good, it's just that we didn't get the our first choices because we got there about 8 and they were running out of dishes. That is okay but they got to do a better job of informing the wait staff when they do run out of a dish. A table that was seated before us and... read more

We had dinner here because the wait at our first choice was too long. We were curious to try The Reservoir because we had been to its sibling restaurant, The Bench in Stowe, which is newer. The Reservoir is much more casual than The Bench and its menu is more basic. We had hamburgers which were fine but not great.... More

Great little restaurant located in the downtown Waterbury. The chicken sandwich with sweet potatoe fries and salmon burger were delicous . They offer may local beers on tap including a sampler of the top rated local beers. Very reasonably priced with great service.

We visited here on a Sunday evening early in August. There was a queue for a table, only a 20 mins wait so manageable. We ordered the flat iron steak and Cajun shrimps and the fried chicken, the portions were generous and very tasty. For desert we had the mousse which was very rich. The choice of draft ales is...

Love this Waterbury watering hole for a bite to eat and a cold craft beer with friends. The pub's vast local craft beer and cider list includes my old faves like Switchback ale plus "newbies" like Frosty Works and Zero Gravity. On my most recent visit, my dinner mates and I all decided to try the Elk Sandwich, tender farm-raised... More

My family stopped here to eat on our way to visit Ben & Jerry's. I ordered the meatloaf, my son ordered a Lamb Burger, and my husband ordered a steak sandwich. We also had poutine for an appetizer. We all got stuffed, but it was so tasty. The service was good, food came to the table quick. Overall good bang... More

Stopped on a Thursday evening at about 5:45. Seated right away. Our waitress was IN TRAINING with an experienced waitress guiding her. Not a problem. We ordered a Malbec and merlot. Was informed when they came back that they were out of merlot so ordered a syrah. Wine arrived and we ordered a lamburger and a meatloaf dinner. Was informed... More

They said they were short staffed but we were seated shortly after getting a drink at the bar, no delay in getting our food. They did forget the chicken on my sister's burrito and made up for it by bringing the chicken on the side (not really the same) but then they also took it off the bill. Food was... More

Was going to go to another restaurant but there was an hour wait so decided to go to the reservoir. We certainly we not disappointed. The burgers were superb and my husband's pulled pork sandwich was very tasty. A great range of beers too. Would come here again.

I visited the Rez because a friend was playing music on the patio. Checked out the website prior and hoped the burger was as good as pictured. It was better! Amazing selection of local craft beers. The beer flight was great value and my choices were delicious. The burger was one of the best I've ever tasted and our fries... More
