Swanton House of Pizza

Restaurant details

After a pleasant drive through the beautiful Champlain Islands, we decided to stop in Swanton for lunch, arriving a few minutes before noon. The House of Pizza was just about to open, so we thought we'd give it a try based on the list of offerings displayed on a lighted sign hanging over the counter where we ordered. We were not disappointed. There's more here than pizza, including a pretty nice selection of appetizers, calzones, and both hot and cold subs.

We ordered a large "oven hot sub" with thick slices of chicken grilled for us on the spot, including also lettuce, tomatoes, onions, peppers, pickles and a generous amount of cheese. It came with a 20 oz. soda and a bag of potato chips, quite a bargain, we thought, at about 13 bucks for a large, fresh, well-made sandwich that easily fed both of us. Cut in half for each of us to enjoy, it still seemed big. It certainly was filling.

On this sunny, warm day, we wanted to be outside, not inside, so we did take out and headed to the nearest natural area with picnic tables, which happened to be the lovely St. Albans Bay Town Park, easy to reach via VT Route 36, which you can catch practically right from the parking lot in front of the restaurant. So we got to enjoy our delicious, still-warm sandwiches outdoors in a nice shady spot with a great view over the water.

In rain or in cooler weather, it would have been fine to have lunch inside the House of Pizza, which features a good number of tables in a simple yet appealing atmosphere dotted with a few "antiques" to give it some warmth. The place was clean and neat, and the person behind the counter friendly and helpful, plus made us a really good hot sub scratch as we waited and others began to come in for lunch.

This seems to be a popular eatery, and we also noticed its family friendly approach, as several people with small children arrived for lunch when and were warmly greeted by name. They appeared to be "regulars," always a good sign.

Recommended.

My wife had their takeout for the first time and were pleased with the pizza. It was decent and priced appropriately. The problem we have is the employees were not wearing mask and seemed unconcerened about the covid crisis. We will not go there again.
