HOLY MOLY IT'S INCREDIBLE!

We ordered a couple of local beers, the Mediterranean Mac & Cheese, the Buffalo Chicken Mac & Cheese, and the steak. They were all incredible. Be warned... probably 3 people could split just one Mac & Cheese. It's delicious. We also ended with a mini maple creme brule which was a perfect ending... read more

First, the biggest negative which is the popularity - very hard to get in at normal dinner hours on weekends. Be prepared for a wait since no advanced reservations taken for those times/days. Because of the popularity, the parking is abysmal. Again, be prepared. All the rest is wonderful. As you have probably read, this is comfort food heaven with... More

Our House Bistro is on Route 2 & Main St just across the Winooski River Bridge. The area is kind of congested, the best bet is to park in the public parking garage a few blocks away and walk along the Winooski River enjoying the view until you go under the bridge. The sidewalks can be narrow and congested with... More

Really good food with great service and an awesome outdoor seating area. The lobster mac and cheese and French onion soup are delicious and the bloody Mary's are highly recommended! Great for weekend brunch!

Seven of us went there for lunch. They say comfort food and they are right! I think they have 23 kinds of mac and cheese. It comes in individually baked cast irons skillets. Portions are large. Three of us had their Ruben Sandwich with fries. Well prepared and delicious. Took a mac and cheese with (extra) lobster chunks for home.... More

A local recommended this darling cozy restaurant and we were so grateful! The interior is casual and rustic with nostalgic decor, such as a ledge lined with old school metal lunch boxes. Outside about half a dozen tables are available on the sidewalk where you can benefit from hearing the live music next door. Mac and Cheese in all it's... More

We called ahead and were seated inside when we arrived. They were very busy, being a Friday night. It was very homey inside and they had a bunch of old lunch containers and other old pieces, which were all very cool. The servers seemed a little overwhelmed, but we still had great service. Our food was really good, two of... More

If you like comfort food, you won't find anywhere better than Our House. They have umpteen kinds of mac and cheese, including lobster and BBQ chicken. Sooooo good! Great french fries, too!

This was like walking into my grandparents for dinner! The tables are lined with old TV guide covers of all kinds, the walls are lined with album covers of all kinds, and we were at a high top table drinking out of mason jars on a Friday afternoon. We had a late lunch and got in with no line. They... More
