We were walking by and stopped in for dessert. They had a seasonal pumpkin cheesecake that had a maple glaze....Amazing! Good service too.

The good: 1) They have reserved parking spaces for veterans. Love that. 2) Great salad bar with something for everyone 3) Unique decor The bad: 1) I have never included background music in a review before, but the 50s music that played through the speakers in every room annoyed the heck out of me. I almost walked out after I... More

Our son attends Middlebury College and every time we head out there, my husband and I are hard pressed to find a nice restaurant. Oh, don't get me wrong, we've had some excellent food, but had yet to have a nice dining experience along with good food. We had heard about Fire and Ice and never got a chance to... More

There were four of us who had dinner at this establishment. All four of us really enjoyed the food and thought the salad bar was well worth the price. The service was very good also, and they have a lot of cool things in the place to make it a really nice experience.

I love Fire and Ice, and would go even more frequently if I didn't live an hour from Middlebury. We always get a friendly greeting as we come in, and we usually ask for a table in the Library - even though it seats almost 40, the room is laid out so that each table feels "private" and we could...

I like to allow a few days to pass before I review a business. As for Fire and Ice (FI), this is what I did. Upon entering you have to admire the work that has gone in to decorating this place. It is quite extensive, unique, and must be very expensive for upkeep. We were in during a weeknight in... More

Very different and unique atmosphere. The food and service were equally good. The prime rib, steak, and twice baked potatoes were very good.

Whether you are just a couple looking for a quiet dinner or a large group of friends looking to celebrate, Fire and Ice is the place! The service is friendly and attentive. The salad bar is Amazing!!

If you are looking for a wonderful Vermont ambiance in a restaurant that is authentically designed with the history of Middlebury from the early 1900's you will find it at Fire and Ice. Very interesting photos and memorabilia from the Middlebury College. Elegantly designed with rustic barnwood, on different levels with many very private romantic booths. A old nostalgic wooden...

While visiting Middlebury, we dinned with brother in law, and niece. This was our first time here at this restaurant. I must say we were very very impressed, not only by the service, the great dinner we had, but certainly the inside of the restaurant itself. When visiting Middlebury, this place is the place to enjoy a great meal, and... More
