Arvads is a nice restaurant. The food is good, the atmosphere is quiet, and the service is friendly. I've had the Reuben and the BBQ sandwich here...the Reuben is the better of the two. The sweet potato fries are good, and they feature local beers and tea.

Well, it was a Saturday evening around 6pm on March 19th. Ski season is still happening and downtown Waterbury was active with dinner goers. Arvads was not our first choice, but we decided to go there due to the wait at the other places in town. We stepped in the door at 6:15 or so and were immediately seated. The... More

Wonderful spot. I was recommended to go here with my grandson because it was family friendly. Great start sat right away and there is a paper covered table with a bucket of crayons. We were one of the only if not the only table the waiter had as the restaurant was empty. Server forgot to put in my special salad... More

Had lunch at Arvad's with my wife. The beer selection may be excellent for other areas, but it is only good for the Waterbury/Stowe area. Yes they have Heady and Focal Banger, but there is nothing of note beyond those two. With that said, the "mainstream" beers in this area are darned good. My reuben was the best I've had... More

The wait at Alchemist was an hour and so we were enticed inside by the Fiddlehead and plethora of open tables. Dry turkey on the club and a luke warm veggie burger on a cold bun. Beef burger was okay. The waitress was lovely and beer delicious but we won't be back.

Not much to be said other than the title. Great vibe, good food, great beer. Been several times and each time has been very enjoyable. Highly recommend for families, couples, etc. Staff is also very helpful and nice. It's a rare find to have a place I can always count on when vacationing around the Stowe area! Highly recommend!

In house made corn beef! Comfortable and nice staff. Not cheap but reasonable prices. I am glad we selected this from what seemed like other good options.

I had the southwestern chicken salad The chicken was crispy and tasty the salad greens were fine. My wife had the Mac and cheese which creamy and satisfying. They have an extensive beer and cider selection and the service is quite good All in all this is a good place to have lunch if you are in the area

Brought my 2 teens & husband for a lunch stop on the way from NH to Montreal. Courteous, clean, fast, delicious, local and even comfortable & entertaining decor. The draft and can/bottle craft beer options are off the hook. Will go again!

I was in Waterbury for a hockey tournament in Stowe and came to this restaurant because the wait at the Prohibition Pig was too long. I sat at the bar with my two young sons and the decor was nice and cozy and service was super friendly. They have a nice selection of draft beers but prices are a bit... More
