Arvad's has catered our companies Holiday Luncheons for the past three years. The food is always delicious and the service is excellent. They are priced very reasonably too. Every year the food is perfect for our event. Thank you Maryanne and crew!

I wish I could go here and bypass the humans and just have the amazing food the kitchen prepares. Twice I've eaten here and been seated inside, near the bar. My family and I love the crayons and brown paper. We adore the food. But the servers are vile. Condescending. Loud and rude. One time they were talking trash about... More

My husband and I just shared the best sandwich, THE VERMONTER. Too late to take a picture, it got gobbled up. Delicious, mostly turkey and apples

Well I was nervous to try a new restaurant in town - but when I initially looked at the menu and saw "Hand-cut Bottomless Fries" unfortunately they had me hooked. Then they added Crispy Loaded Potato Egg Roll that has bacon. I mean c'mon - that's just from the appetizer menu. Food is very good and prices very reasonable. I... More

We had dinner here while staying at a B&B in the area (see separate review). It is right on the main street in Waterbury and we parked on the street. There is a nice patio area and it was a cool Fall night but they had heaters on the so it was very comfortable. The waiter we had was great... More

Stopped in while trying to find some lunch in Waterbury. Arvads was empty, which was really surprising with the fantastic meal we had. The food was great, and they had a good beer list including Alchemist and SOS. If you're looking for a spot to eat in Waterbury, it's worth a stop!

We went to this restaurant and had a nice Ceasar Salad. But the rest of the meal, crabcake, wings, and a steak, were simply dreadful. The crabcake was dry, the wings were tasteless, and the steak was tough. And, it was horribly expensive. Maybe other items on the menu are ok, even good. But 3 out of 4 things we... More

We had gone to Arvads twice before when we were traveling through Waterbury. My wife wanted to try the Egg and Cheese BLT that I had tried on a previous visit. She said we could try another restaurant but I went here because she had so wanted to have the sandwich. She wanted the BLT with all the rich ooey-gooey... More

Stopped in for dinner on a Saturday night while visiting Stowe. Luckily we called ahead and were able to put our name on the list, saved us about a 45-60 minute wait! (Many of the other pub/grills in the area don't take any kind of reservations) Drinks were strong and well made. Our group of four had the wings and... More
