We stopped in to the Tinderbox after doing a bit of TripAdvisor research. They were close to closing for the night but say us and treated us well. The menu apparently changes daily with whatever food products they get on daily delivery. Most of the food was great. Definitely an eclectic menu. On friend got the scallops, which surprisingly came... More

A truly unique and sophisticated menu in a smaller town. Very friendly waitstaff. I am often too full for dessert, but those donut holes with dipping sauce are not to be missed... so I don't miss them.

The Tinderbox describes themselves as "American Comfort Food… Redefined". Fitting in with the Flagstaff / NAU vibe the atmosphere is relaxed and unassuming. We samples a couple of the starters, octopus and charcuterie, then added scallops, pork porterhouse, and the lamb ragout. We finished with a shared creme brulee. Lisa provided service was attentive without being bothersome. We will definitely... More

I wanted to try one of those small restuarants in Downtown Flagstaff. So we walked around a while nothing seemed to agree with what I was looking for. So I almost gave up and went somewhere familiar. Until I walked by this place across the tracks on San Francisco St. It was called Tinderbox. Oh my the smell even before... More

We walked in with a group of six , since the annex was busy we went next todo to the empty restaurant, and decided to go to the bar for some drinks, six glasses of wine SEVENTY FIVE BUCKS! That should have been the warning shot, so we stood at the bar and were... More

Considered American comfort food with a twist. Speciality menu of daily fresh offerings. Everything cooked to perfection. This modernistic restaurant specializes in lamb, venison, duck, and Pork Belly. But the soup as well as the desserts are pure decadence and a party for your taste buds. We were seated immediately and everyone was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Limited... More

My boyfriend and I went here on a spur of the moment date and were so pleased with everything about it! We went expecting it to be on the expensive side so we were prepared in that regard. We ordered a bottle of wine that our waiter Patrick had suggested, it was incredible! We proceeded to take advice from our... More

This is the second time we have been to the Tinderbox Kitchen when visiting Flagstaff. Both times the dinners were lovely. You can have a good variety ranging from Venison to Duck, I had the duck my husband had the venison, both were tender and delicious. We ordered the octopus for a starter, disappointing, the presentation was lovely but not... More
