Comfort Food
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.

Normally, we love Beertown. However, after asking our server if we could move to a table nearer the heat lamps, and moving to that table, we were spoken to incredibly rudely by an employee suggesting that we had moved without asking. That employee did not introduce themselves, nor did they have a mask on when they first spoke to us. We won’t be back to the Waterloo location.

Been to several beer towns and loved them all. The Waterloo location was gorgeous, food was great, but the service could’ve been better. Our server wasn’t really knowledgable on alcohol offered nor food on the menu. It also took about 20 minutes to be even greeted by our server.

Other than that no complaints!

I love the food & variety of beers. I find the seating by the washrooms to be extremely loud due to all the hard surfaces along the wall with white tiles. Difficult to carry a conversation with friends.

Great visit, great experience and great server. The only thing that bothered us was we forgot to grab our two take-out boxes which was food we paid for and were eager to enjoy the next day. We had left the restaurant for no more than 1-2 minutes (we didn't even make it to our car) and when I went back to the hostess stand they immediately said it got thrown out. I asked for them to check with the server who also reported to the hostess it was thrown away. In my mind that was too soon to assume we didn't just forget it. So disappointing!

Food and drinks were good, service was excellent, however needing to sit outside was a little on the cold side. But what are you going to do under the circumstances.

My Carolina chicken burger was less chicken and more breading maybe the chicken fell out in the fryer. We were given apps without plates forks etc and had to wait awhile for anyone to come over. Otherwise everything was good.

Our party of 4 was seated promptly and in a great booth with plenty of space. Unfortunately the service from that point on was lacking. Our server was not attentive, forgot many items and ignored us several times. The quality of the food was fantastic and we all enjoyed our meals. The only concern was the pretzel and dip appetizer that came with enough dip for 6-8 people but only 5 pretzels. When we requested additional pretzels we never received them. At the end when we asked for the bill and I requested a few additional pretzels to take home with the large amount of remaining dip..I was brought 4 little pretzels and charged an additional $3.95. I was shocked at this considering our server forgot 2 beverages and never brought side plates. We factually had to go seek her out behind the bar just to get service.
We will definitely return because the food is good, however the service and lack of service recovery or any manager check is something that should be addressed with the team.

Visted Beertown for lunch with a fellow songwriter. The food was terrific as was the service we got from Matthew. My friend really liked the beer our server recommended.
The decor and ambiance are first rate.
We'll be back for sure!

This restaurant had done a very good job of maintaining social distance due to Covid 19. We felt secure dining inside Beertown

Food was good. The host made me feel like they didn’t want me there. Felt very awkward after being sat down. Our server didn’t get us more drinks the whole time we were there. Left thirsty.

When booking a "patio" booking, we were placed in the covered patio which felt a lot more like indoors. Would have been nice to actually be on the patio.

My only criticism would be that the main door into the mall was (apparently) mistakenly open. Thus, having entered via that door, and in the absence of any signage to the contrary, I stood around for several loooooong minutes before any staff noticed me and were inclined to ask if they could assist. Aside from that, the food and service were wonderful.

We reserved an indoor seat but were served in the covered patio which is fine just not as formal as I was expecting. The server was good and the food excellent. Brisket burger was SOO good!
