Wonderful craft beer selection. Food menu is great. Tried the avocado fries and thought they were pretty good. Had the pulled pork sandwich and enjoyed it very much. Service was very good and prices are reasonable.

Glad there is a sports bar in town, as our hometown team was in the playoffs and the staff was very accommodating about finding us a TV to put on our game. Loved the popcorn in the backroom! But the food sounded better than described, and there wasn't a large selection.

Looking for dinner in Waterbury and tried the Prohibition Pig (#1 on T.A.)... Not only was it crowded and noisy, but the menu seemed pretty limited, so we went to The Reservoir. We got the last table and lucked out having Megan as our server. The beer was outstanding and varied (we're Oregon IPA fans) and Megan steered us correctly... More

Sat outside it was so warm for an October night. Food was great, wait staff was very friendly. A nice find. We ended up here at 7:30 on a Friday night, but we were able to get in.

My wife and I ate there after a busy day looking at the fall foliage. The atmosphere is very comfortable and homey and the noise level is just right so we could carry on a conversation at our table without being overwhelmed by the conversations of others nearby. I started with a bowl of Portuguese kale soup which I had... More

We had a wonderful meal with family and friends not once but twice in the same month. Sullivan our server was outstanding on our first visit with food recommendations and helpful on a... More

Went with another couple and seated right away. Our waiter was extremely friendly and very helpful with suggestions about what to order. I usually don't eat fried chicken or mashed potatoes but he made it sound amazing-so that's what I ordered.. The meal was delicious. I cleaned my plate. We had the avocado fries as an appetizer (sounded interesting)-not worth... More

The menu is very interesting and we had a difficult time making our decisions because there were so many yummy sounding items. Started with Parmesan Truffle Fries...they were good but just like regular fries , no hint of truffle oil and only a dusting of parmesan. The slider burger was also good but not the wonder that was described on... More
