We have eaten here for the last 3 years while on vacation. The first year was awesome. Last year not quite as good. Thought maybe just an off night. Tonight was not good. The atmosphere is also not as quaint. However, if you are in Burlington the restaurant there is awesome. We ate there Sunday and it tasted so good... More

Simply put the BEST PIZZA EVER. Expect a long wait, despite what the hostess says, and don't freak out about it. It is what it is. They open at 5pm and are always popular sooooooo.... My suggestion: have a light lunch then show up between 4-4:45PM, no later than 5pm!, and eat an early dinner. Worth it! The most creative,... More

We always go here when we are in Waitsfield VT. We know that we will wait; but we still come because the pizza is that good. We love to gaze at the firepit & people watch. Of all the Flatbreads, we like this one the best.

In past trips to Sugarbush, we found the wait too long. This time we found at that you can get reservations, but only in person. I walked in at 6:00 (on a Saturday) and found the earliest available was 9:00. We decided to take it and came back around 8:30 and checked in. They seated us a few minutes before... More

The wait is out of control, sometimes 1-1/2 hours. The pizza is very good but overpriced. The grounds are beautiful and fun. Folding metal chairs and cheap tables make for uncomfortable cramped setting. The bartender is great but the staff attitude is not so great. Go somewhere else for better value and avoid the ridiculous wait time.

Good and very inventive pizza. Lively atmosphere, people having fun. Always great salads and creative natural ingredients featured on the flatbreads. Not inexpensive, but worth it.

On its own this place gets good reviews, but it also came highly recommended by our Inn host. Fortunately we arrived in the area around 4pm and were encouraged to go put our name in - that's their system, so that's what we did. We headed there after 5pm and asked for something at 7:30. When we arrived later we... More

Great cozy atmosphere, delicious one of a kind pizza in the area. We visited on a Friday evening during ski season; be prepared to wait a while since the weekend skiers are arriving with their families. Outdoor fireplace where you can bring your drink while waiting for table and small bar area inside.

The title sounds like I'm joking or being lighthearted here, but I'm not. This place is truly special. It's about as simple and no-frills as they come, and yet you leave feeling healed and nurtured and full of beautiful food and joy. The flatbread is made from all local ingredients, and the bread itself is perfect - light, doughy, full... More

I've been coming to American Flatbread for 20+ years and, as always, it was a unique wonderful experience!
