Stopped in for a business lunch and wasn't disappointed. Food was hot and fresh, even though the pace was (as I'm told) Vermont casual....I guess that means slow. If you're not in a hurry, this place is worth the visit.

This place is a little trendy with high top tables, and a hole in the wall kind of atmosphere. The service was excellent and the menu unique. The big drawn is the different kinds of Mac and cheese. My dining mate and I each had a different Mac n cheese dish. They come out in a cast iron skillet. To... More

The food was ok, nothing to rave about. It's pretty hard to mess up mac and cheese but it was very bland. No seasoning, bland cheese, and small portions for the price. Atmosphere was ok but nothing great. It wasn't horrible but I definitely wouldn't return.

Food is amazing! Not a gourmet meal but perfect comfort food for a single-digit Vermont winter's evening! All members of our party enjoyed their entrees.

Rumors of an incredible selection of specialty mac and cheese dishes are not exaggerated. Between the three of us we had 'Lobster Mac' 'Pumpkin Duck Mac' and Thai style 'Peanut butter and Jelly Mac'. Yum, all were delicious. Service was slow, food preparation was slow, and the seating is uncomfortable, but the incredible food made up for the minor complaints.

Our House Bistro was one of the few restaurants my husband and I actually made a point to eat at during a quick visit to Vermont on our honeymoon road trip. They had been featured on a cooking channel show we caught one night back in the summer - the owner of the restaurant was making some incredible mac and... More

I really enjoyed my meal here. Chicken pot pie was out of this world and the local beer on draft was great too. Loved the funky decor and the liveliness of the place. I want to go back and try one of the many kinds of Mac and cheese.

Amazing lunch. Great selection. The choices of Mac n cheese was amazing. Have no complaints on the quality of the food. Only concern were the seats...high bar level and not as comfortable for me.

Came here with a friend for dinner specifically for some mac and cheese. I had the breakfast mac and cheese which was great - had bacon in it and a fried egg on top along with some crispy bacon as a garnish. I took some home - it's a pretty sizable portion - and had it for breakfast the next... More
