Great food and attentive service.

Having dined here many times before,I visited Fire & Ice Restaurant with the knowledge that I would receive an excellent meal served with attentiveness and kindness. On this visit I selected a pasta dish, Fettucini Alfredo. As always, the meal was just a little too much for me but this did not... read more

We've been here before and as everyone continues to point out, the place is unique with a wonderful salad bar. The other night we were there for dinner - ordered the prime rib and the steak scampi dish. The prime rib was not done to order (medium rare which is recommended)-- it was almost rare but more disappointing it was... More

This place was excellent. The atmosphere was really fun and creative. If we had been in town longer, I would have come back every day.

If you want a truly amazing environment to eat in with great food this is as good as it gets. You could fill up on the cheap on just the "salad" bar alone which has about 50 items including pastas, sushi and other unexpected items. Generally kid friendly too. Make the trip.

First time we have dined here - online recommendations were good. Didn't have a reservation but was offered a seat at the Moose Bar where we could order food. This was not in a good place for eating so opted for one of the smaller rooms - where we were told that happy hour for drinks/appetizers was only in the... More

Ok first you have the Moose Pub attatched, then you have three, 4, other bars; salad, milk, bread, & cheese. The salad bar is not your typical salad bar; it is housed in a small boat. Now as different as that is, each room is themed from a different, time, era, and ambience. There is the library, crew & athletic... More

I had a fabulous dinner out with my 16 year old granddaughter and her friend! I enjoyed the Rockport - the most splendid, tender filet mignon stuffed with fresh lobster and drizzled with hollandaise....out if this world! Of course, the salad bar including the peel and eat shrimp, Monument Farms Chocolate Milk, Cabot Cheddar Cheese wheel, and amazing salad made... More

Went there looking for "regular" food as I was there to participate in a ski race. I wanted to avoid fast-foods and burgers. They offer a salad buffet, bread and cheeses complimentary to the meal. The menu has great choices and the price is fair. It is not a super cheap restaurant, but the quality is worth it. The staff... More

The food was good, the salad bar was fresh and had homemade bread and carrot cake! The prices were great and there were many little rooms that made it cozy.
