I've had very good meals here, and so-so meals here. I don't know if the kitchen staff turns over frequently, but there is a lack of consistency. The food is never bad, but sometimes I am left feeling that there is no reason to come back. However, this is one of the best bars in town for eating... read more

Dined their twice last week..first time, ordered Tuna nachos and they were quite good. A genrous portion of tuna…pricey for an appetizer. Next time, ordered Tuna BLT…tuna was overdone, fishy and tasteless…when I mentioned it, waitress ignored my comments. Took it "all" home and even my cat turned his nose up at it…will not return. Aside: worst name for a... More

We decided to go to CT on a Saturday afternoon for a nice lunch and we came across this restaurant, the food on the menu sounds delicious so we decided to stay. The place was not crowed at all but it took our waitress 15 minutes to place our order. After we order; we were waiting for our drinks. We... More

Re-opened early July and redecorated....UGLY! What a shame. They got rid of all the nice woodwork and beautiful marble bar. Stainless steel and ugly 'subway' tiles.

We enjoy Bissell so much - especially the bar/happy hour. We had just gotten into a regular Friday night groove there when they "closed for renovations." Word on the street is that they are closed for good, possible selling. We are bummed and in search of a new spot.

Service was good..Food Awful. A ceasar salad was barely a cup of chopped up romaine. My fresh loin of swordfish was not only not fresh, came out raw and was so bad I could not even eat it. Thankfully they took it off menu. Mu husbands trout was delicious. But will not return.

Just went to Bissell house to celebrate my mother-in-laws birthday who lives in the area. Was delightfully surpassed by how good the brunch was and the service was outstanding. Pamela was our waitress and went out of her way to satisfy our every request. The eggs benedict (without meat per request) was delicious and one of the best my husband... More

Have eaten here several times. Have never been disappointed with their food. The service is a bit uneven. Don't ever seem real happy to see a customer at the door. The bar crowd can make it a bit loud but OK if you are there for a good meal and not a romance.
