Our Visitors Just Love Our Food

In a Warm and Friendly Atmosphere. Plus Much More!

I ate here tonight and decided I couldn't go to bed without writing a review. The places where you can taste the love that went into the food are far and few between, Poor House Bistro is one of them. I ordered the combo and I'm so glad I did so I could try a few of the wonderful things they make. Cannot recommend them enough!
