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

im a local and been to this restaurant for a while. We went on date night and we were pleasantly surprised to see the new outdoor patio expanded. We chose inside seating this time. The wait staff was great - something you don't usually get in,our college town and the atmosphere was fabulous. Nice that we could walk right in... 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

Comfortable, hip atmosphere. Interesting menu. I ended up ordering the pork porterhouse because I was curious if someone could really pull off a moist, delicious piece of pork. I was floored - it was fantastic.

We have been in Flag for several summers now and have put off going to TB. Big mistake. We had thought the menu was a little narrow and too much game but we were wrong. Excellent dinner and fantastic wait staff.

Our family of 5 (one young child) had a delightful dinner to celebrate a birthday at the Tinderbox. The food was perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. The staff - hostess and waitress - were very professional and very friendly. We sat on the patio and it was a great evening on all counts. The presentation of the "tea box" is... More

My family always looks forward to a visit to Flagstaff and Tinderbox. The restaurant has a nice vibe, although it can get a bit crowded. They only take reservations for parties of 5 or more so we try to get in early. The menu is not large but every item is pleasing to the taste buds and the eye. On... More
