All of the restaurants in this area had great ratings so we figured we couldn’t go wrong. We had a long wait, even to sit at the bar for dinner. But the food was good so it was worth it. The bartender was a great host, giving us lots of information on the surrounding area and local beers. The comfort... More

I want to love this place but the food has gone away from its roots and is becoming a little bland and ordinary. This is my second time it was not as good as it had been. I will go again in how's that it goes back to the way it wad when it first opened. Please!

We had the choice of several attractive restaurants on a small square and were glad to have chosen Our House. The menu has a wide range of interesting selections and we were pleased with what we ordered. We'll have to return with our g'daughter for mac and cheese, which appears in a number of variations.

Ok, I know there are LOTS of other types of food on the menu and even more kinds of Mac and cheese than could fit in this review, but I loved the lobster Mac .we had a wonderful meal outside for dinner. Drinks were great, I love the local Citizen Cider they have on the menu. Try the Dirty Mayor.... More

Our House claims to serve "twisted comfort food", and they deliver above and beyond. We stopped in somewhat by accident, not at all familiar with Winooski dining. We were instantly captivated by an extensive menu with unusual and interesting options. Not weird or intimidating by any means though; the ingredients were familiar but the grouping was new. For instance, they... More

First of all I am a southern bred, corn bread and collard green fed, macaroni and cheese that you have to pace yourself with Southern gentleman. I had to provide credentials before I continued. While in VT on business, I stumbled on this place. I mean... So for starters the Frickles (Fried Pickles) were the perfect way to begin this... More

Met two friends at Our House Bistro on a week night around 4:30. Not a lot of parking and depending on the street you park, the parking is timed. We were the only customers when we first arrived so we got seated quickly. There is not a lot of seating. The lighting was dark. Service was reasonable. I had a... More

I can't believe this was my first trip to Our House--it will not be my last. While there was an hour wait for a table, that hour was pleasantly whiled away with a walk along the river that likely helped our appetites. I was with a friend, so I have no idea how long we waited for our food, as... More

Interesting, creative dishes and drinks are the forte of Our House. The restaurant itself is small and cozy. Noise is always manageable. Great for couples and smaller families. I recommend going here if you are in the mood for rich creative comfort-food style mac-and-cheese followed by a creative cocktail such as the Vermonter (tastes like a White Russian) with a... More

I dined here with four other people last night as it was suggested to us by my daughter who lives in the area. The menu sounded like familiar comfort food, but as they claim, with a twist. to be fair, it was a Saturday night and the place was packed. We waited over an hour for a table and then... More
