A casual, yet sophisticated dining experience in a rustic Vermont setting & urban chic atmosphere. Our menu is similar to the State of Vermont....eclectic & different!
The restaurant is named after the iconic fire tower that sits atop Stratton Mountain where multi generations of skiers and riders made the hike to the summit.
Nestled in the heart of Stratton Village, whet your appetite with Fire Tower Shrimp, our famous Ahi Nachos or one of our unique dinner entrees.
Combining the spirit of a traditional tavern with upscale modern materials we take great pride in our unique bar design.
We offer Vermont craft beer and carefully curated cocktail selections with an extensive wine list.

    Place was fairly busy when we arrived. Checked in and seated promptly. Waited for our server to show but after 5 minutes we asked another waiter about our server. The server finally came after 10 minutes. We were ready to order with both drinks and food. Food service was paced nicely despite it being busy. Food was good. We ordered potstickers to go. The only downside to the potstickers- they were overly salty due to being drenched in soy sauce. Lesson learned- ask for the soy sounds the side.

    It was a great experience. Celebrated my wife’s 40th. When booking, they ask for special occasion, which I listed. They didn’t acknowledge it, but food was amazing!

    Excellent, we had a cozy booth of 6, ages 5- to 74, service with a smile I'm sure, behind the stupid mask. I loved the old barn post and beam structure over the booth area that created an even cozier spot.

    The only thing better than the service was the food . Everything from the appetizer ( potstickers) to the desert (apple berry crisp) were excellent. Fresh pot of coffee was nicely served and reasonably priced . Would definitely go there again.

    Great meal! Had the steak and also the short rib. Both tasty, well cooked and seasoned. The Vietnamese appetizer and chocolate chip browned dessert Rob fed out our meal. Very enjoyable. Good service and nice ambiance. Also a good wine by the glass list that won’t break the bank.

    The hostess was not welcoming. Instead of smiling and saying Welcome she said What can I do for you? I had a reservation for 8:30 and at 9:15 the waiter said if we wanted dessert we needed to order right away because the chefs were leaving. The butter came in a plastic takeaway cup instead of on a plate. Waiter was friendly and nice and food came out quickly and was good except for my fries which were soggy and tasted old. Chocolate torte was also disappointing. Like a cold brownie.

    Like clockwork we were expecting a note from you. It's our 9th year and we have a lot of experience with guests and know what's coming our way. First, all our staff wear masks so how do you know she wasn't smiling? We use 100% biodegradable cups for butter. It's very efficient.

    My girlfriend and I went out for a date; thought we’d go someplace a little nicer than usual. The food and drinks were excellent. Loved how the place looked the music choice that night was a bit odd but thats just personal preference. The price range was a little high for us but definitely would like to go again sometime. :)
