Finally got a chance to stop here last weekend for lunch and a beer. Wonderful selection of beer....and they have a 5oz.sampler offering as well, so you can try out a variation of different local brews. Food was good (Kale salad was awesome)....nothing fancy, but good variety of burgers, salads, soups, etc.... Can't wait to stop in after a day... More

Fabulous local pub with a great offering of local beers - food is excellent (best veggie and turkey burger ever). Great atmosphere with lots of locals and out-of towners. Good luck trying to find a place to park on the weekends!

I had a pulled pork sandwich which was offered with a special sauce and it was very tasty. Of course, this being our first time in the area, we had to... More

The lunch menu has a wide selection with some great salads, hamburgers, sweet potato fries, etc. The dinner menu adds... 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
