Love the place. Food is excellent. G and Mike at the bar are fabulous. And Sammy, the hostess, always makes you feel welcome. Will go back again and again.
lovely & accommodating waitress. Ahi nachos are excellent. Great caesar salads as well
Definitely too much going on with the food, really was almost as if they want into a garden and took every herb spice and green plant they could find and dropped it on a plate! Way way too much. Carb cakes were on a bed of salad which consisted of mint salad and who knows what else. Definitely not what we expected!
We actually source our vegetables from local Vermont farmers during our summer season. As fresh as it gets.
The Food and drinks were AMAZING!!!!! I got the Summer Sangria and it was so delicious, I ordered more than I normally would. My husband got the Watermelon Sugar High drinks and they were great too! We started off with a margarita flatbread on a gluten free crust which tasted great, especially with the prosciutto on it. We both got the Statler chicken dinner and I can’t say enough how GREAT it tasted!! The chicken had a slight crisp on the outside and it came with herbed butter which made it so full of flavor. The dinner also came with green bean/sweet corn mixture and roasted potatoes. Everything was absolutely so flavorful. Our server was very friendly and very attentive to my gluten allergy needs. He checked in to see if we needed anything but was never pushy or rushing us along. I highly recommend the Fire Tower Restaurant & Tavern but also know it is best to make a reservation. I can’t wait to go back and try some of the other dinner choices. The only downside is the drinks are pricey.
Hi Foodie Thank you for the 5 stars and kind words. We try our best to accommodate all guests that have different dietary requirements.
Food was fair.Menue is limited & does not change from last time we dined there
My husband and I chose high top seating in the bar area. Our server was very attentive. The food was delicious (NY strip and Mahi-mahi). Good vibe, highly recommend.
Nice ambiance. I noticed that there were booths when we entered after we made our reservation and requested one. The manager with short hair and glasses refused to seat the two of us in a booth because they are reserved for parties of 4 or more. Well, it’s off peak in June and all the booths but one were available as we checked in. She refused and sat us in the bar area that was very loud. I had the chicken dish, delicious. Clams app was amazing. As for the octopus, Physically couldn’t chew it. I gave it a 3 star because our waiter was actually really nice. As for the manager, she really should of been more accommodating.
You noticed that all the booths we're full even though it's off peak in June. We're still busy but have 1/2 the staff to run the restaurant. We only have two servers at this time. Our manager moved you into the bar area because that server had more capacity to serve you. I'm glad you thought he was really nice because he is. We actually we're very accommodating but should have explained the real reason for not seating you in the booth. We will explain better in the future
Table was ready and staff was courteous! Drinks were great and food was good. Great spot in the Village.
Lovely and friendly staff!
Whan an Unexpected great meal. We were just looking for a good burger and I had the best pork shop Ive ever had.
Delicious cocktails and food. Nothing run of the mill on the menu. Attentive service. We could almost forget Covid even though safety measures were present.
Always great food
Amazing food, staff and ambiance
Great selection, great food always eat there when I am in Stratton
It was a bit irritating that we arrived exactly on time for our 8:30 reservation and once seated we were told we have to hurry up and order because the kitchen closed in 15 minutes
Excellent experience. Food was delicious, service was great. Mike was our server, very attentive and helpful. The ahi nachos keep us coming back along with excellent cocktails.
Food was awesome, drinks were delicious. Servers were friendly, even the busboy was joking with us. They put up with our very talkative and rowdy group with no complaints. A great evening.
Wonderful service, great food. Thank you all for keepin on keepin on during these times!
Thank you for the 5 stars Anonymous! Like many of us we see better days ahead.
Overall, an excellent apres’ ski spot to enjoy unique menu offerings (ahi tuna nachos, gourmet flatbread pizzas, delicious cocktails). Our favorite restaurant at Stratton. Also high marks for service and upscale, relaxing atmosphere.
Thank you Jrf77 for the 5 stars.......................the snow is excellent too :)
They have a two hour time limit which was disappointing. But we enjoyed the atmosphere and the drinks were top notch. We ordered food which was very good. Also very disappointing you cannot sit at the bar at all
Hi PamS Thank you for the 5 Stars. We’re glad you enjoyed our cocktails and food. COVID has mandated certain changes on how we run our restaurant and I'm sorry you were disappointed is some of our policies. Trust me we're not that happy either though we do see better days ahead as we approach summer. Thank you for visiting
Kids fish and chips was delish, brisket burger was underwhelming. It just didn’t have a lot of flavor. I’ve had better burgers. Everything else was good. We would visit again on our next Stratton trip.
Food was average- service a but slow. All in all a good experience.
The best meal we had since the last time we ate here!
Thank you for the 5 stars StuB! Hope you can join us every week :)
Fantastic meal and nice experience using open table.
Thank you for the 5 stars and we're happy you enjoyed the Fire Tower

Thank you for the 5 stars CraigW! We really enjoy our guests at the Fire Tower. This year more than ever. We very much appreciate your support
Beautiful restaurant and the Ahi nachos lived up to the hype. The strip steak over mashed sweet potatoes was terrific. Going back another night before we leave Stratton!
Hi AndrewM The Ahi Nachos have been our signature appetizer since we opened 8 years ago and remains a guest favorite. Thanks for the 5 stars
One of my favorites but tough to get reservations. Ambience and service top notch and food is great as well!
Thank You Mimi22 At 50% dining capacity and no bar seating it has been a difficult season to support all the reservation requests. Thanks for the 5 stars.
Amazing food and really delicious specialty cocktails. The best restaurant in the Stratton village for Apres or dinner!
Thank you for the 5 stars Anonymous! We love that you think "Amazing food and really delicious specialty cocktails" The snow is AMAZING too.
Wonderful atmosphere. Service is attentive and food is delicious.
Love to go here apre ski.
Everything was great from your hostess to our waiter, Scott, to the delicious food! And you did a good job of making us feel welcomed and safe!
Thanks for the 5 Stars JohnN. We're thankful to have the staff we have to help us execute our COVID safety plans. Oh, and we're glad to thought our food was delicious :)
Great meal for after a long day of skiing at the mountain
Great food and great atmosphere. I enjoy a little background noise in the restaurant when eating so the quietness given the limited capacity was different.
Hi cherrjus Thank you for the shout out "Great food and great atmosphere" and we turned up the tunes :)
Excellent food and drinks! Great Covid procedures in place .
Hi CandiceC We love when guests describe our food and drinks as "Excellent". Happy you noticed our safety protocol too. Thank you for joining us at the Fire Tower
Great dinner. Apple critter dessert is amazing! Loved the ahi nachos to start.
Hi DanielleS Our Ahi Nachos have been a guest favorite since we opened 8 years ago. I'll let Chef Jason know you thought the Apple Fritter was amazing he makes it himself. Thanks for visiting
Food and service were excellent. With Covid the restaurant was pretty empty due to restrictions.
I have been going to fire tower with my grandson for seven years .It is our favorite place to eat together. The food is fantastic,the menu has something for everyone & the service is great! The staff is wonderful! With everyone being so nervous about Covid,I can tell you I felt extremely safe! Everyone has a proper mask on at all times and they are set up so we can all social distance. Great job Fire Tower!
Hi CarolB Glad to see multi generations enjoying our restaurant for the past 7 years. We've spent a lot of time organizing our restaurant to make our guests feel as comfortable as possible. Thank you for noticing and also for the 5 stars. Happy and Safe New Year
Fire tower atmosphere is cozy and warm and they have the best ahi nachos! Mike and G the bartenders are awesome as well!!
Hi Mimi22 This is our 8th winter season and our Famous Ahi Nachos have been on the menu since we opened. G & Mike have also been with us for the last 8 years and that's awesome.
