Beertown is the destination for the instinctively curious. It fuels the fascination for all things purposefully crafted, whether that's beer, cuisine or design. Our guests know that life is too short for the ordinary. With 30 beers on tap and about 100 in a bottle, there is a beer for everyone. Our chefs have taken as much time as the brewers to craft everything that goes on each plate. We look forward to serving you.

Our Universary graduation dinner party of 9 was seated in the covered outdoor area which was less noisy for Grandad's hearing. Everyone raved about the food and the server and kitchen were very attentive to the food allergies within the group. Our server was simply awesome and we will be back next time we are in Waterloo.

We had a really nice lunch to celebrate our son's convocation. The beer list is exceptional. We especially enjoyed the flights that allowed us to taste many varieties. The food was also excellent.

Girls quarterly lunch where I was hosting it. So I decided beertown where the out of town girls never been. Extremely happy with them being able to accommodate us on the patio and the waitress was so helpful by telling us a half portion option and informed us that one dish was more spicy which was so helpful.

I was excited to try BeerTown as I had a very enjoyable experience at the Cambridge location. I figured the service, and vibe would be similar. However, regardless of booking a reservation well in advance, we were greeted with a warning that there was a reservation already booked immediately after us (less than two hours later), and that we were unable to be seated on the patio (one of the major reasons the restaurant was selected). We certainly felt unwelcome, and rushed prior to even sitting down for dinner. Truly disappointed with the service end of things. Our food and drinks were fantastic. We got multiple appetizers, main dishes, paddles of beer, and seasonal selections. However, with the quality of service received, I would not go back. I hope this feedback helps improve service cues, and politeness moving forward. Thanks.

Best experience I’ve had at a restaurant in a while. Great service and great food. Everything came out in great time and was delicious. Best spinach dip I’ve ever had and the pretzels that come with it were by far my fave. 5 star service and food.

We were a group of six. They easily accommodated some of our unique seating requests (no elevated tables etc) to assist my son with special needs. The service was great, the server made some awesome food recommendations (which were spot on) and the food was very good.
Will definitely be back.

A warm welcome and the nicest server! We enjoyed the cheerfully buzzing atmosphere and the food and beer was absolutely delicious and out of the ordinary. My personal preference would be to sit in an area not so near the TV screens. A fun time and a really tasty meal. We both enjoyed vegetarian options.

I made a reservation for my friends birthday, and she loved it! Our server was extremely helpful and made our dining experience amazing. They were able to accommodate all of the requests we had and that made the evening even more special. I definitely recommend coming here if you are looking for a fun place for a special occasion.

I was met by the hostess who immediately made me feel comfortable and she informed me that my date had already arrived then showed me to the table. Our server was Ashly E. She greeted us warmly and expertly answered our questions about the menu items and made suggestions for options for sides with my meal for which I was grateful because the listed side would not have been my first choice. Ashly was very professional and at the same time had an easy friendly manner. She was also very attentive with refills and any other needs but not intrusive which I appreciated. Our meals were very good. My date had soup and I had the southern fried chicken. We both enjoyed our choices. Thank you Beertown. The great food and excellent service helped make our lunch very enjoyable and we even lingered for a time.

The service was terrible from beginning to end. The hostess had an attitude, our server rolled her eyes when a colleague asked for recommendations, she huffed when another took longer than 5 seconds to order a beer, after letting her know that my California burger didn’t have an avocado on it, she brought two tiny slices of one on a bread plate and said “here, in case you still haven’t found it.”
We travel from NYC every week for business and stay down the street. This used to be one of our favorite places, but we can’t see ourselves going back anytime soon.
