Food and service were excellent. Had salmon and it was cooked perfectly. The atmosphere is very casual. Obviously very popular by looks of how many people were there. One problem, is not restaurant, but the access, the steps into the restaurant from Main St. Need repairing and a closer railing... read more

Varied menu with pleasant service. We started with a fresh salad and delicious vinaigrette. The wings were excellent, as was the macaroni and cheese. My son and I had the fried chicken--which were huge portions with garlic mashed, coleslaw, and a terrific biscuit. My husband enjoyed the blackened salmon tacos, plus a few of the many beers available. No room... More

For lovers of Vermont's wonderful craft beers, the Reservoir is a delight. When I die, I would just as soon spend eternity at the Reservoir as anywhere. Heaven, indeed. There are 38 beers on draft. Samples are freely offered before you commit to a pint, so pick an IPA or a stout or a pilsner (no, not a pilsner), and... More

Four of us went for Saturday dinner recently. One had the meatloaf but they were our of mashed potatoes. Another had fried chicken and another had the turkey burger. For myself, it was fish and chips. Of everything our group enjoyed, the fried chicken and fish n chips seemed that best. My piece of Haddock was cooked perfectly and a... More

With really good food and an excellent selection of draft brews plus a good number of televisions (especially in the rear pub section), this is another of the excellent pubs in Waterbury (along with Prohibition Pig and Blackback). More up tempo than Blackback and less crowded than Prohibition Pig. You may still have a wait but won't feel like a... More

They have an extensive list of craft beers on tap (not sure how many) that range from local Vt beers to other New England beers as well as the old American standbys. I can make an informed decision using their beer list that describes the beer and the alcohol content. The place is usually packed on the weekends in ski... More

Lovely outdoor dining area. One of our party had the steak dinner, two had the fried chicken and one had the Chicken Curry. The meals were well cooked and delicious, especially the biscuits. Would recommend.

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
