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.

A new menu with a wide variety... something for everyone. We love the roasted cauliflower pizza with truffle oil and the home-made veggie burger. The house burger is tasty too! Cozy booths, friendly wait staff and priced well. Give it a try!

My favorite time to eat at Bissell House is for lunch with a girlfriend, but dinner out, especially on Wednesday nights when they offer a highly discounted price on bottles of wine, is also a hit with my husband and me. Request a seat in the front window so you can people watch, too. If you eat here in the... More

I've been to Bissell House many times but had stayed away because of the uneven kitchen and service that was more impressed with itself than it deserved to be. Had a lovely couple of glasses of wine and light meal there recently on a cold night. Syd (Sid) was our responsive server. I remain a bit skeptical but am open... More

The food was very pedestrian and lacking creativity. The Mac and cheese didn't even rival boxed products. Limited menu with uninteresting selections. Amateur wait staff but try hard with no leadership. Truly lacks an identity, needs to start over with a new vibe. Sorry but true, mediocrity in the food business these days isnt acceptable.
