My wife and I caught a quick lunch here the other day while shopping in Winooski. The place was really cute and had lots of old lunch boxes decorating the walls. The menu was a little weird, there was a whole page of just different kinds of Mac and Cheese. I got the chicken pot pie, it was decent but could have been better. My wife got a BLT and had about the same opinion of her food. The price was pretty fair for two people having lunch with a couple of beers.

We went for lunch today with the family. Outside the front door was a list of their weekly specials. When you walked in the restaurant on the back wall was a large black board with their weekly specials. When you sent down at the table there was a piece of paper telling you about their weekly specials. The weekly specials sounded absolutely fantastic. My wife and I were happy to order two of the specials but unfortunately the waitress pointed out to us that the specials were not available until after 3 PM. It’s never much fun to have to change your order because the restaurant can’t be bothered to take down their list of specials. The fact that they were completely unapologetic and made no effort to fix the issue says an awful lot.
It used to be impossible to get a table on a Saturday or Sunday at this restaurant now there are tons of empty tables. This was once a great restaurant. I do hope that they are able to pull things back together.

We were visiting Vermont and this was recommended. It is a very small place but quaint and quirky. We arrived at 7:00pm on a Thursday evening and with a party of 6 had to wait for 40 minutes. I normally wouldn’t wait that long but it worked out for us since we still had to wait for most of our party. It also gave us a chance to walk around and shop a little. The food was very good and the service outstanding. We had: Irish egg rolls- like a Reuben rolled up and fried. Artichoke dip-delicious with large pieces of spinach and artichoke and served with grilled baguette. Traditional Mac and cheese- served very hot so the cheese is melty and crunchy breadcrumbs on top. Others ordered lobster Mach and cheese, fried chicken mac and cheese and a veggie burger. Everyone enjoyed their meals. We’d definitely go back if we return to The area.

My friend and I had lunch here and since we are both lovers of Mac 'n Cheese -- and this is a specialty of Our House Bistro -- we both ordered the Traditional Mac 'n Cheese combo. This means a smaller portion of mac 'n cheese combined with a choice of either soup or salad. I love it when restaurants give us this option! Otherwise, the menu has tons of comfort-food choices.

We both loved our meal, but honestly I don't think I could have eaten a FULL portion/order of the macaroni and cheese. It was so incredibly cheesy it was crazy, and almost a little too much cheese. But delicious tasting spiral macaroni, four-cheese sauce, and the herbed crumbs on top are perfect.

So my advice -- if something could be too cheesy for you, consider the smaller portion of mac 'n cheese combo to see what you think. Or, if you order the full-size, you might possibly be using a little take-home box. Either way, enjoy this fun restaurant!

Comfort food meets fancy pants ingredients. I had the seafood mac & cheese. Tell the carb police to STFU! Every bite is worth the decadance.
