A phenomenon -- and gourmet pizza

Warm! Fabulous pizza variety and flavors. The most unique reservation system I've ever encountered, but well worth whatever you have to do to get a seat!

We ate there during a recent Vermont vacation, and did not know that there are "seating times" and that, at least on Fridays and Saturdays, you need to go in person by the restaurant after 4:00 to reserve a table for that night. So, we just showed up and waited close to an hour. BUT, the food was simply wonderful... More

We have gone to American Flatbread in the past and knew of the wait. Last year, We had a few beers at the bar before being seated, but had little problem getting in to eat. The pizza was expensive, but served hot, quite good and the rustic ambiance was crowded, but pleasant. This year, the family showed up at 6:00... More

If you want the best pizza, be aware that you need to show up between 3:30 and 4:00 PM to get a reservation for dinner that night. The place can be hard to find so make sure you have clear directions. The good news is that it is so good that it's worth whatever you have to do to get... More

Cool decor around the restaurant, with great service. Kids can color while they wait for their food and the staff is happy to take special requests on the food, as it's made to order. Hot apple pie right from the pizza oven is especially delicious, topped with fresh Vermont made ice cream. Can't go wrong, but you may have to... More

We are used to their seating/name taking method now. It is pretty easy, I just leave skiing to put our name down for whatever seating time we want and go back have an apre ski beverage then get ready for dinner. Easy. Seating times are 5:00, 6:30 and 8:00. SO, notice, you have the table for an hour and half!!... More

AFB is a must for Mad River Valley visitors. It's a little pricey, and you'll probably wait for a table while enjoying a beer or wine, but it's definitely worth the experience. Outdoor eating in the summer is even belter!

We plan a trip to American Flatbread every time we go to Waitsfield. The pizza is delicious every time and even though it can be a bit of a wait, we never seem to mind. Can't wait to go again!

This was our 2nd trip to Sugarbush resort for a ski vacation and couldnt wait to stop at American Flatbread. The flatbread pizza is delish, they make it in the wood fired oven in the center of the restaurant. All the ingredients are fresh and local. They arent open everyday, just Thursday-Sunday, get there early on the weekends to beat... More
