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 detract from the beautifully cooked pasta in a... 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.

This dinner was to celebrate my husband's birthday. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. Fire & Ice specializes in steaks, but there are plenty of other interesting items on the menu including vegetarian dishes. There is a magnificent (I want to say famous) salad bar which you could definitely make into a whole entree. We had very... More

This is not the same as the Fire and Ice restaurants in Boston and Cambridge MA. The decor is very "Vermont" like a warm cabin feel, replete with a huge Moose head as you walk in! It seems like a restaurant that would would for a casual outing or even an event.

This is one of the BEST restaurants to have an intimate and delicious dinner. Not overly fancy, but a place you can go dressed up. The prime rib is cooked perfectly, the salad bar is full, and the service is wonderful. Highly recommend this place! If there is one reason to go, it's the chocolate milk you can get a... More
