Cozy little pub, dont be turned away by 2 tables and bar seating only. The food was terrific, the staff was friendly and knowledgeable and the atmosphere is cool. Definitely the best place we ate in Waterbury!

My husband took one look at Blackback Pub's beer list and determined we had to go there for lunch! We arrived on a busy Wednesday around noon and it was packed! Most of the seating is at the bar, with just a few tables scattered throughout. We only waited about five minutes, however, and two spots opened up. We ordered... More

Here for business, I checked out Blackback Pub based on the TA reviews. I sat at the bar and ordered the NY strip steak with crab cake, which was the special that day. This dish was served with potatoes and roasted vegetables. I am a recovering "well-done" steak person (I know, I'm awful), but I ordered my strip steak "medium",... More

Had a calamri appetizer which was actually a soup. Quite interesting and delicious. Also had their steak sandwich, and the steak was prepared amazingly. Cannot wait to go back.

We stopped in Waterbury and look upon TripAdvisor for a dinner recommendation. This place was amazing. Definitely was not traditional bar food. We started with an appetizer of Bar Nachos….bacon, nachos, blue cheese, scallions, maple chipolte, etc. It was soooooo good. We split a steak sandwich and finished our meal with a creme brûlée and coffee. This will be our... More

Wow best food in a long time best pub food ever. Great selection of micro brews on tap. Great flavor in the food. U will be sitting at a bar most of the time not many other seats. But it is worth it for the food.

Found this on tripadvisor and it was worth the short trip, 10 miles from Stowe. Arrived around 7:30 and got 2 seats at the bar. This is not a big establishment but it has a great feel. This has one of the better selection of craft beers around and a full bar. The food selection as others have mentioned is... More

Great local flavor with an amazing draft selection of local craft beers. Jamie's Chicken PotPie is all it's cracked up to be with huge chunks of chicken, new potatoes, celery, carrots, etc. can't go wrong here.

Dropped into Blackback Pub after a wonderful hike up Camel's Hump. The place has a wonderful, warm atmosphere. It's a rather small place with a few tables and plenty of space at the bar, plus a neat little patio/bar out front. The staff was amazingly friendly and helpful. I had the pulled pork sandwich on focaccia with chips and a... More
