Fire Tower Restaurant & Tavern Ratings and Reviews

Staff were very attentive and friendly. The food was very good (really liked the specialty nachos and flatbreads). Specialty drinks were good although all drinks were pricey. It was quiet enough to talk and relaxed atmosphere to enjoy without rushing. Probably a bit pricey to bring a family but would recommend a visit!

Tried this place while staying near by for the weekend. Everything was delicious! I went with my boyfriend and we shared the jerk wings and the firetower shrimp. Wings were awesome because they were a dry rub so no mess and the shrimp were bomb. For an entree I got the crab meat stuffed lobster tail and my boyfriend got the lobster alfredo. Sooo good and we're from New York so I feel like we know good food. Def will be back again!

We were very disappointed with the quality of our entrees. The meat dishes, which included the short ribs and the elk chop, were both tough and chewy. Given the price of our dinner, we expected a fine dining experience. Instead we received a mediocre, sub par meal. The appetizers however, salad and ribs were good along with the smoked chicken risotto.

Up for a ski weekend with the family and had a fantastic first time dining experience at the Fire Tower. Lobster Alfredo and venison dishes were visually stunning and delicious. The service was prompt and friendly and our server Cheyenne was peronable and engaging. Would highly recommend and will definitely be going back next time we're up st Stratton!

Holiday meal with family. Terrific. We have also been there for regular dinners and always leave feeling like we had a wonderful dining experience. The food is always so creative but not to the point where it is weird.

Very limited vegetarian options. I ended up with just a side dish and some burnt rice. Of course this is partially on me for not doing my research ahead of time, but in Vermont on the mountain I am accustom to plenty of options!

The food all tasted sour. I rarely leave negative reviews but felt compelled to mention it. I feel the quality is suffering as they have a captive audience there on the mountain and therefore don't have to try as hard to know they will get diners.

Love the convenience, location & accessibility. Menu has not changed for two years & fish dinner (Opah) was tough & dry. Services excellent with willing & able young wait persons, priced right. Need to upgrade menu!

We had a really good meal. We were working in Stratton and the restaurant had been recommended to me. We had a member of our group with Celiac Disease and a few vegetarians, the hostess sent the head chef out to our table to discuss the options and ensure that the meal ordered to be gluten free would indeed be GF, with no cross contamination. As well he offered suggestions and modifications for the vegetarians. Food was good, service was good, laid back vibe, just what we were looking for after a long day at work.
How we'd LOVE to keep this place a secret!
We have been to the Firetower Restaurant on Stratton Mountain many times, and it never disappoints. The menu is varied and unusual, and each member of our family has tried every dish at least once. The chef, Max, is amazing, and creates some really creative dishes. Don't miss out on the Fire Tower shrimp. The appetizers are substantial, and the salads are unique and wonderful. We can't say enough good things about the restaurant, and making reservations is so easy online.
Excellent Stratton Village Restaurant
I frequent Fire Tower during the ski season. It is one of my favorite restaurants at Stratton Mtn. The food is always top notch, their menu is never run of the mill, and everything is very fresh. The Ahi Nachos are the best I have had anywhere! They have a nice bar area with friendly bartenders and you can always find yourself getting into pleasant conversations with other patrons if you choose to. I find the food here to be as good, and a better price point than some the other restaurants on the Mountain. It is a good scene for those of us no longer in our 20's and that can be nice from a noise standpoint. Everything about it is well done.

One of the few choices on the mountain. Food was fair. Limited selection. The biggest flaw was from the host to server they had definite attitude. White wine served room temperature. Asked to share salad and it was presented on one plate and no additional offered. I could go on but I'm sure you get a sense of the experience.

We were there for Super Bowl weekend and this restaurant was definitely the place to be! The venison was perfect and I loved the Hawaian Opah. The entrees were delicious and creative! Thank you for a memorable evening!
Creative Drinks and Nice Menu
Dined with three kids and two adults (including myself). The drink menu is outstanding. I started with a Bacon Old Fashioned and it was just excellent. I have had bacon infused bourbon on several occasions, and this was well done in that it was not OVER done - the infusing was just right and the bacon garnish was a fun touch and made for an excellent FB pic. (In hindsight, I'm not sure if they make the drink with Bourbon or with the traditional Rye.) I then had another craft cocktail that had bourbon and apple cider - it too was excellent. Dinners were solid all around though the kids menu, as is always the case, was nothing but fried junk - I so wish they would put decent food on kids menus! For my entree, I got - a pretty expensive - venison medalions. While the meat was tender, it was over-seasoned by quite a bit. It was still good, however, and when paired with a bite of the mushroom risotto, it was indeed excellent. For dessert we shared a chocolate pie thing that was awesome - I paired it with a nice glass of Warre port. My wife got another GREAT drink for dessert - I think it was called a Maple Jiggler. Fantastic! It was Frangelico, Maple liquer and a couple other things served in a little tiny mason jar with a tiny slice of fresh waffle - yes waffle! Really good stuff. Overall enjoyed it very much. Well behaved kids will do okay here, but there was a kid a few booths over that made it kind of loud - his parents dealt with it as best they could. (My kids are perfect. hahahahaah).
