We love this quirky, fun restaurant, great PIZZA!

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... read 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

First time I have ever had anything close to farm to table pizza and it was terrific. We had on of the specials and a special salad. The salad was super fresh and the pizza was delicious. If you are in the mood for great pizza and want something different than the usual pepperoni, this is your place.

I'm not really sure why they do the seating the way that they do. I suppose there must be an issue in The Valley of tourists making reservations and not showing so I guess this probably acts as a deterrent. Here's the drill; They start taking reservations at 4PM for that evening and you have to be there in-person to... More

You have to really want to come here - but I'm one of the people that does. People start to "queue" at 3 pm for the 4 pm reservations. No actual line, just remember the person in front of you. Luckily, the bar opens, so you can have a glass of wine as you wait. Once you come back for... More

Each year we travel to Waitsfield, VT for a week - our trip would not be complete without a visit to American Flatbread at the Lareau Farm Inn. It has a very rustic but comfortable atmosphere in a barn setting with a large wood fired stone oven in the center of the barn. Our service was great and the pizza... More

I love eating at Flatbread--the food, the ambience, the history, the local flare, etc. BUT I hate GOING to Flatbread. I am absolutely flabbergasted by their "Reservation" system. While they claim they do not take reservations, that isn't really correct. They take reservations in person starting at 4:00 PM. You can reserve a table for one of their several "seatings"... More
