Great service, cozy atmosphere

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... read 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

Fun spot to try many Vermont and a few other top craft beers. The burgers were great with delicious extras. Very pleasant for our family of five. Coming back again soon and we also like the outdoor patio when the season allows.

My boyfriend and I were in Waterbury over President's Day weekend. We wanted a quiet weekend away from the craziness of New Jersey. We were originally planning on eating dinner at the Pig, but we didn't feel like waiting over 2 1/2 hours for a table. We walked up the road to the Reservoir and were pleased with what we... More

While making my monthly trek to Waterbury for Lawsons Sip of Sunshine and Heady Topper I stopped by the Reservoir for dinner. The front dining room had a lot of local families due to it being Wednesday night non holiday. The back bar area was also full of locals sampling some of the 28 beers on tap. Service was fast...

When ever my husband I are using our timeshare in Stowe, we make a pilgrimage to the Rez as locals call it. The fries, chicken wings, and burgers are all very goo. I particularly like the Lamb burger, but this time I tried their scallop appetizer. Scallops were perfectly done, and a generous portion for an appetizer. My sister-in-law who... More

We ate at the Rez twice during our stay in Waterbury. Everything I had was excellent. The meatloaf dinner, the wings, the muscles, and the second visit: Poutine and a spicy burger. Both were excellent. First time eating Poutine. It was amazing.

We tried this restaurant for the first time and were impressed. We arrived early (5 p.m.) on a Tuesday and had our pick of seats. We chose a regular height table on the upper seating area; there are several high top tables an few regular height tables in the main dining area. - One of us had duck breast and... More

Best burger I have had in America! The interior of this pub/bar is really interesting. There are lots of ski-themed ornaments and a really cool map of Vermont made of Vermont licence plates. I would definitely go back.
