“Happy to have stumbled in...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

What a great place. There aren't many restaurants where you can just tell the people REALLY care about what they're doing, the food they're serving and impression they make.

This is a little hole in the wall place in Waterbury, and our family of five stumbled in completely by chance.

Everything was perfectly seasoned, very flavorful and presented with care. And their own IPA was delightful on a hot summer evening.

“Great food, TINY PORTIONS”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

If you are planning on eating here, don't go for a burger or a sandwich. Go for the pricier, full plate options. The portions are absolutely miniscule and we had to order two plates per person. Absolutely ludicrous, considering the price tag. However, the service was great and the quality of the food was good.

“great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

The food was fantastic. My daughter had the Mac N' Cheese. The best I've ever tasted. I had the cheeseburger very tasty, Husband had the pulled pork. his plate was clean so I guess he enjoyed that as well. It was pretty crowded and it is a small place so there was a wait for a table. We sat at the bar and had good service.

“Fun and hospitable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

It's seems to be the place to be. The IPA selection was great and I really enjoyed the service. Food wasn't quite what I was expecting but it was decent enough.

“OUTSTANDING Food and drink!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Couldn't rave about this place enough. The food was exceptional and flavorful. I loved that they used local and organic ingredients when possible. The Mac and Cheese is out of this world. Also pretty excited about the draft list, as we were really hoping to get some Vermont local beers, and we were not disappointed! SOOO good!
