On Hew Year's Eve, we needed a place to have dinner in Brattleboro before going to a concert there. We hadn't made reservations so we were not optimistic.

While the primary menu is very top-heavy with meat, as a vegan and vegetarian, we found enough to make a good meal from the pasta and pizza offerings and the very good sides. Service was friendly and nicely attuned to our needs, and the cocktail we had on the recommendation of the server was excellent. Sides of vegetables were splendid,... More

Higher and pizza delicious fresh pastas. The sweet potato pasta dish is a must. The bar features inventive drinks. There can be a long way and their tables are very small. Not a great place for kids.

We had a couple of restaurants on our short list but our hotel's endorsement of Fireworks plus a walk by convinced us to give them a try. We were NOT disappointed. They had a wait but we put our names in only to find an open high top in the bar area. It worked wonderfully for us. Nice views of... More

My wife and I were in town for a weekend get away and when we asked a few locals for a good place to eat including the folks where we were staying they all mentioned this place. I'm glad we listened! The place has a very upscale yet relaxed atmosphere. The staff was friendly, and knowledgeable. And the food was... More

Just days after New Year's we rolled right up to the curb, went in and had one of the best meals in a long time! The bar staff and waitresses are all very friendly and always ready to accommodate you! The menu is awesome and service is great. I have stopped here several times and never needed a reservation.

I want to apologize for being down on a hometown restaurant but I keep giving this place a chance and they always fall short one way or another. I tried their "cheap" red, $7.50, because "how bad could it be?" Why serve it? Is my response after trying it. This was followed by the "braised duck risotto" which was a... More

The best kept secret in town for steaks and meat lovers. Any way one orders a selection, dishes arrives perfectly to one's appetite's delight. Great gathering place for friends or cozy couples' corners. A must visit for satisfying any taste.

I've been there 6 times and it's always been consistently outstanding in both food and service. Can't wait to go again soon.

Good drinks, nice bartenders, consistently good (or good-enough) food. Pizza is fair to good, as are the pastas and salads. They serve soup, but don't have soup spoons (or large spoons for pasta). Good drink specials. Notice there is no option between "average" and "very good" in the rating section. Would have been a "good."
