This wonderful place offers something for everyone. If you are looking for a quiet evening with great food and extensive tap list, then ask to be seated in the front of the restaurant. If you are looking for a more "bar room" vibe with sports playing on multiple TVs, a pool table, large bar and free popcorn (along with the... More

Good service topped off w/ great food! All my group can speak to, are the burgers... all of us enjoyed our meals and the burgers were all to write home about! Live music started when we were heading out, but they have music all the time!

A great restaurant that has a fantastic local beer menu and the food was outstanding! I had the meatloaf and it was done to perfection and my wife had the chicken marsala and she loved it. We shared a fantastic house salad and a perfect chocolate moose for dessert. Our waitress was fantastic!! We would recommend this restaurant to anyone... More

I love visiting here on our trips up to Stowe. We enjoy drinking local beers and they always have an amazing tap list. It is great to get a "flight" of beer and that way you can taste a variety of beers. The food selection is good as well. The restaurant is divided into two sections, one side is more... More

Started with the dry-rub wings - perfectly cooked and the rub mix had a little kick, but great flavor. Then came the steak and shrimp entree, steak was a perfect medium rare, shrimp was delicious and the broccolini tied it all together nicely with a sauce that didn't overpower the protein's natural flavors. Great meal, good prices and attentive/welcoming staff.

We go here about once a week with friends or for after-work discussions and have for years. We always run into neighbors and friends. Service is great, food is good quality for the price and the beer list is hard to beat (more than 30 beers on tap). You won't be wowed, but you'll have a good time in a... More

While vacationing with family during last week of December, we dined at the reservoir. Although they do not take reservations, we did not wait a long time for a table. The service was pleasant and effective. The food was delicious and reasonable. I would recommend this restaurant

The restaurant was hopping and we had a lengthy wait because they don't take reservations. The atmosphere was quite lively. Our server was amazingly attentive and spot on. I made the mistake of ordering the fried chicken. I was told by friends that when it's good, it's really good but when it's not, it's not. I should have taken that... More

Mark F, Manager at The Reservoir - Restaurant and Tap Room, responded to this review

Thank you for your visit and your feedback. I apologize for the quality of the food which you received and we will address it with the kitchen staff. With the fried chicken being local usually there tends to be a tendon near the bone which stays red and can give the perception of undercooked chicken. We do cook it twice... More
