After checking out the much more crowded Prohibition Pig next door, we decided to have dinner here on our way back from Burlington. The dining area consists of pub style tables, and the place was half full, I’d guess. I like the vibe; doesn’t hurt that they had the Red Sox game on. While there is a small bar in this section, they also have a large bar in another area if you are there just to drink. The beer menu is more than adequate with 35-40 drafts and quite a few bottles. I had a pint of Lawsons Knockout Blonde. Had I noticed the option to get a flight of five local brews for the same price sooner I would have done that. Great idea and excellent value. The food was very good; we didn’t order anything out of the box, but the homemade mac & chese, sweet potato fries, and chicken spinach wrap were all really well done. The wait staff was friendly and efficient. We had a nice time at this place and wouldn’t hesitate to go back if in the area again.

Visited 7-11 for dinner. Wow was it busy and scorching hot inside. We were sweating at the table. Service wasn’t too bad. The girl was a bit slow, but it was busy, so you can’t expect much more. Beer selection was crazy good with tons to choose from. I got a Maine Lunch freshly tapped and Fiddlehead IPA. Food was solid, just found it odd I only got 8 wings for my 10 wing order lol. It was way to busy to say anything and what are they gonna do, make me two wings and bring them out? Value was decent and food and drinks were priced fine. Overall pretty good. Only went there once as there were other places I liked more, but I’d go back.

Excellent draft list, but this place to too busy and impersonal. I felt like just another body, not a valued customer. They offer tasters but its disingenuous as they eliminate almost half the beers as candidates for the flight. I would only come here if a beer I wanted wasn’t at another bar.

Alternative au Prohibition Pig ou allez-y le deuxième soir à Waterbury. Ambiance cordiale bien que plus locale et moins achalandé que le PP. service est courtois. Bouffe bonne. Choix de bières varié et pas bien en dessous du PP en ce qui a trait à la qualité. Chanteur folk sur la terrasse le dimanche soir. Pour ceux qui aiment.

Another good pub in Waterbury. Extensive tap selection with mostly VT options. Bartender was busy serving between the back and front bars so it would go a awhile without seeing him. Food looked pretty darn good. Comfortable pub with plenty of wood and pleasant lighting. A fun spot for a beer.

Very nice atmosphere, a touch fancier up front in the restaurant area. Back bar has lots of tv’s, pool table, and a more casual atmosphere. Always a strong selection and the food is really nice.

An excellent bar and restaurant. One section of the place is more restaurant-like, while the back area is the bar, including pool table. The beer range is awesome, with loads of stuff from Vermont. Prices are highly competitive and they offer flights for Vermont beers. The staff is attentive and friendly. The food is also very good. There are several great food/beer options in Waterbury, and this is one of them. Certainly worth a visit.

Visited on August 20, 2014, for diner. Nice old building, pub like decor inside, there is a patio but it was full. The inside space to eat was limited to high tables and a upper section where there is live music on Saturdays. Beer tap menu fairly solid, half is Vermont stuff. Good bottle list to. The food menu is mostly for pigging out, there was one with two hot dogs buried in chili and fries, and other is a 1 lb burger call the Truck Driver. I was way more modest with my Pulled Pork Sandwich, very good by the way. The service was nice, but are waitress came to see us four times. In all a nice place!

Not sure why I like this place so much. It’s nondescript with old wood floors, a small patio, a long bar which is partially hidden by a room length wall, and wood tables and chairs. But, there’s something charming about it. The food is a really good value and tasted great. Staff was very nice and the selection was excellent as well. Definitely would come back.

Stopped in here twice over 4th of July weekend 2014 with Vinny and Keith. Typical sports bar/restuarant feel, except they have awesome beers on draft. Much like the other Waterbury spots, you can expect to find Hill Farm, Heady Topper and lawsons. They also stock gueuze available in bottles. Small outside area for eating and drinking. Pool table in the back.

Comments: This combines with Prohibition Pig and Blackback or whatever to combine a trifecta of beer bars within a 200 feet radius in the main square of Waterbury. Less expensive and less trendy than Prohibition Pig. Food looked good, but not crazy. Staff not as on their game. Tap list was excellent, but it was skewed from Hill Farmstead’s Anniversary Event.
