Went for lunch on a Monday. Got there at 12 noon and we had a 20 minute wait. Mind you it opens at 1130. It's also a very tiny place. It's well worth it. I had the brisket sandwich with crispy onions and my gf had the "just a burger". We shared an order of shoestring fries. I'm not a... More

Had 1.5 hours to pass while friends were skiing and couldn't have been happier! Stopped in at 11:30 sharp (when they opened) and not even 15 minutes later the bar area was full and tables were filling up! Had a Pulled Pork and Habanero / mustard sandwich on ciabatta bread... very good special for the day! Surprised by the al-a-carte... More

Pretty fancy for a BBQ place and I like it that way. Great place for a date or dinner with friends. Food is fantastic and so are the sauces on the table. Try the BBQ sauce with bacon!

We met our son and my brother and sister in law for lunch. We had a great table by the window and liked the lively atmosphere, but the food was not that good. My husband's pork sandwich was supposed to be hot and was not, my salad had glops of dressing and squash, not very appetizing, the others in our... More

The Prohibition Pig is a great local eatery, however, watch out, the lines can be log on Friday or Saturday, the food is that good. Gluten free can be arranged. Wide selection of locally produced spirits, parking is right around the corner.

Great fun with friends! The food was wonderful! Try the chicken biscuits!! The long wait was not too bad as the cocktails while waiting were tasty! The one negative are their BBQ sauces. The Carolina and the BBQ bacon sauces were both bad. If they could just improve those, this place would be 5 star.

I haven't eaten at any other restaurants in Waterbury, but I really doubt that there is a better place in town for a casual but upscale lunch. Their own beers are great, the burgers are innovative and tasty, and the atmosphere is chill and comfortable. I think this is your best bet if you're stopping for a meal in Waterbury.

First, beer selection and waitress were great. However, Food was a major disappointment. What happened? I've been before and loved their food. Today we waited 40 minutes for burgers that were ordered medium, but arrived well done on burnt rolls. I was tempted to send them back, but we didn't want to wait another 40 minutes for our food.
