The beer menu is probably the best in town and the food menu is probably the most interesting. Everything we had was very, very good. Top notch. If we go back to Waterbury, I would not hesitate to go here again.

We had several lunches at the Blackback Pub on a recent trip to Vermont. All of our meals were fabulous. The greatest strength of this restaurant is the beer list. They have beers from all of the leading Vermont breweries such as Alchemist and Hill...More

Stopped in because my husband wanted to try the Lawson's Maple beer on tap. He loved it. I had an awesome grilled cheese and salad. I was most impressed with the friendly awesome service from staff and owner.
