Fire Tower Restaurant & Tavern Ratings and Reviews

Firetower has nice setting and is cozy. Service is good. Servers are attentive.
I ordered flat bread pizza as i often do. This time I ordered the americano. Unfortunately the crust was soggy and mushy. Sauce was tasty but on top of soggy crust was disappointing.

While the place has good ambience, decent food and generally favorable service, they had plenty of space in the separate dining room but jammed us into a crowded area near the bar that was very tight, and the noise level was ridiculous. Couldn't even have a conversation. Put a damper on what would have been an otherwise good experience.

Firetower is fine, nothing to write home about. The food is solid if you stick to the basics. The menu can be a bit to adventurous for it's own good. I had a reservation and they sat us in the bar area which was very loud and chaotic. Next time I will insist that we be sat in the main dining room. Stratton Mountain Village needs more resturant choices..... a little more competition and all the resturants will have to improve.

I am so thankful that Fire Tower continues to deliver quality food. While still pricey (as is pretty much every Stratton Village restaurant), at least the good is very good to great with wonderful and interesting options. Without fail it's my go-to Stratton Village restaurant!
I enjoyed dinner with my husband and our ...
I enjoyed dinner with my husband and our 2 boys, ages 5 and 8, on a Saturday night on a day after skiing at Stratton. Parking is limited so plan to arrive early and walk from the garage (5-10 minutes). If the parking near the restaurant is full you would need to take a shuttle from a remote parking lot. We were early, so we walked around the little village area shopping while waiting for our reservation. Outside there are several chairs with fire pits around them to sit at while you wait.
We heard the hostess turning away people who did not have reservations even though there were empty tables because it was too close to the scheduled reservation times. I thought it was good that they were preserving the tables for the reservations, rather than seating as many people as they could squeeze in between reservations.
The dining area was large but felt cozy with wooden beams in the ceiling, which gave it a nice sort of "Vermonty" ambience.
My husband said the scallops were among the best he's ever had, and I really enjoyed the sirloin chili for an appetizer. My husband enjoyed the lobster pasta, and my salmon was served beautifully on top of a bed of jicama slaw with a delicious veggie burger. My boys had cheese pizza and the kids cheeseburger, and both seemed very happy. I did not have any but was told the home made rolls are delicious and served piping hot with butter. The menu was not very large but everything we ordered was fantastic, with decent portions for the price.
The service was generally pretty good, but I did wait a while (I would guess over 10 minutes) to be able to order a second glass of wine. Otherwise, we had very friendly and helpful service. I would not hesitate to recommend eating at Fire Tower and hope to return again soon!

Undercooked elk, understand it should be rare but this was almost inedible. Waitress checked back 2-3 times in 90 minutes. Didnt see her until 20 mins after entrees arrived, too late to order a glass of wine which i mentioned when we sat down as to avoid this. Host never made eye contact, smiled, nothing. Ignored us for a few mins before finally seating us next to the door, plenty of seating elsewhere. Not heading back anytime soon.

Meal and service were outstanding. Stratton Mountain has needed a destination like this for years. Thanks to the owners for providing such an outstanding dining choice at the mountain. We will return whenever in town!

This restaurant used to be quite good a few years ago. The food has taken a dive- my halibut was definitely frozen - very average & my husband and our son had the NY Strip steak which my husband said was "marginal". And the cost was over $30 a dinner! Since there are only a few restaurant choices at the Stratton village, I feel this restaurant knows they can serve sub par food and still get the customers. The ambiance and service was fine, but the food was so average, will not go there again. Really too bad.....

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.
