Our House is always there for you, if you seek feel-good and hearty meals. Not esp good for vegetarians per-se, their menu leans toward eclectic takes on "stuffed" macaroni and cheese with lobster and the like, generous burgers and bar fare. Plates come out heaping and inviting. Good local beer selection. One of my favorites in the greater Burlington region.

Ordered lobster roll and risotto. Lobster roll not the best I've ever had, but decent. Risotto was good. Excellent value for quality. Wine and beer very good and reasonably priced.

Parking is an issue in this area as there was not much available on a Thursday night. The menu is extensive in this very eclectic restaurant. The wait staff was prompt and courteous. And the food was simply outstanding. There are some very unique menu selections that are very original. We had poutine and each tried a variation of mac... More

While visiting family in Colchester, we started looking for someplace different to eat. We saw an ad in a magazine for Our House, and figured it would be good for both the adults, and the older kids in our party. Since there were going to be 8 of us, we tried to make a reservation. They do not accept them,... More

This was a fun alternative for our Sunday lunch. We enjoyed our salad, lobster roll and Nutty New England Mac and Cheese. What a fun menu and atmosphere. Lindsey took good care of us. The only down side is they are classic New Englanders, still hating the thought of American’s drinking tea. They had no idea how to deal with... More

We went here because of the rave reviews of the Mac n cheese. There was an hour wait, so we hung out at the bar next door. They called and said our table was ready after 10 minutes, so we quickly drank our drinks and headed back over. Unfortunately, they had made an error in table planning, so we did... More

A last minute choice after high school graduation. Called ahead and made room. Service was great. Everyone loved their various Mac and cheese dishes and had some left for dinner.

We (four in our party) visited on a Saturday evening around 7 PM and were seated right away. We all decided on a different Mac and Cheese dish. Once ordered, the wait for our food was a bit long (at least 50 minutes)... but that might be because we caught it at a busy time. The wait staff, however were... More

I'm not a huge mac and cheese fan and I've never have ordered it in a restaurant. But Our House Bistro is known for their unique Mac & Cheese. I got half Mac & Cheese and salad for lunch and it was amazing. My friends got the Buffalo Chicken Mac & Cheese and they loved it. The portions are huge... More

Decent portions. Shrimp scampi Mac was excellent. A little on the expensive side for Mac & cheese, but worth it. We tried 3 different ones, all very good!
