We were looking for a sports bar to watch game 7 of the basketball finals (Go Cavs!!) This is a great place for couples or families. Our food was good, portions were large and enjoyed their beer.

We passed a fun hour tasting several outstanding VT beers from Hill Farmstead, Lawsons's Finest, Fiddlehead, Zero Gravity and many others. The craft tap list is extensive and the 4 oz samplers were perfect so we could taste many without overdoing it! Enjoyed the deck, great service. Didn't try to food as we had already had a yummy lunch at... More

The thing that has always struck me about "The Rez" is the consistency. I've never had a bad meal, never had a bad server. The "worst" food I've ever had was well above average. With a great beer list, fun, friendly and family atmosphere, it's probably my first choice for general dining in the greater Waterbury area.

Fresh cut fries are the first indicator of the quality here. Staff was very friendly and helpful with the menu. I was very impressed with the suggested Big Tree burger: local-farmed ground beef, oyster mushrooms, 2-year Grafton Cheddar cheese, sundried tomatoes & basil pesto. It came with a mountain of those fresh cut fries. An excellent choice for my meal... More

We stopped in for a bit while touring the Waterbury Artest to wait out a rainstorm. Had some great Vermont craft brewery and cider. Best was the appetizer fish tacos, deep fried on a small, soft taco w Chipotle slaw, jalapeño rings and sauce. So good, we could have eaten a plate full. We returned again the next afternoon for...

The foods was average and the place unremarkable. The service was very good. At first our waiter seemed overwhelmed by the volume of diners he was managing however, my guest and I never felt neglected. He was attentive, helpful and respectable.
