Great food, casual pub like atmosphere and good service. You can sit outside on the sidewalk outside for some great people watching in downtown Ridgefield.

Interesting how different our experiences can be just days apart. We hadn't been to this establishment since the new owner took over in 2009, and after reading some of the prior reviews, we did so tonight with some trepidation. But since we had tickets for the Ridgefield Playhouse, we decided to give it a try. I'm glad we did. Our... More

Good menu and food is well plated and tasteful. Service was abominable! We had to ask for water, bread, extra plates, check from a total of 6 different servers plus the manager who could not get the rhythm correct. Immature and inexperienced staff and we would NOT return.

We used to go to Bissell House regularly but service became very slow and lax. Recently we tried again and service was frustratingly slow when there were few patrons and plenty of server staff. The food was good and could have been better. I had to get up to find the server to pay the check. We won't go back... More

Yellow fin tuna BLT is off the charts! I often have it and it's always good. Great sweet potato fries and sandwiches. Service is a little slow, but the food overcomes that.

This restaurant has its ups and downs. I was always a fan of the tuna sandwich. However it was removed from the menu and then added back. Second time around was not quite as good as the first time. Also, one time we were seated right next to the bar and were ignored by a group of waiters. The seat... More

Quick summary: Very good food and service. While visiting family in the area, we stopped here on a cold wintry day. The homemade soups were excellent, and showed real talent in the kitchen -- roasted squash soup with garnishes of cranberries nuts, etc. My sister had a salad, which was also well-prepared and with high quality fresh ingredients. We split... More
