A casual, yet sophisticated dining experience in a rustic Vermont meets urban chic atmosphere. Our menu is similar to the State of Vermont...."a little weird"

The restaurant is named after the iconic fire tower that sits atop of Stratton Mountain where multi generations of skiers and riders made the hike to the summit.
Nestled in the heart of Stratton Village. Whet your appetite with Fire Tower Shrimp, our famous Ahi Nachos or a Tuscan Winter Salad. For dinner variety of eclectic menu options to choose from including Caribbean Grouper, Weinerschnitzel, Vt Fresh Pasta & Lobster Carbonara, Hand Crafted Flatbreads or Mountain Burgers
Combining the spirit of a traditional tavern with upscale modern materials we take great pride in our unique bar design.
We offer some of the most unique Vermont craft beer and craft cocktail selections.
Come try a Makers Cider Smash next to the fire on our covered timber patio

Great location and ambience! The menu has a lot to choose from which was great for our big group with kids. We had the pork potstickers for an appetizer which were delicious. I had the roast chicken over rizotto which was good but too salty!

Although I liked idea of small plates, the prices were more like entree prices. The cocktail list was interesting , dining experience was ok. I felt the food was good but nothing great. An average experience.

Fire Tower is a great choice for apres ski dinner. The staff is always pleasant and accommodating.
This evening I tried the Brisket Cheeseburger for the first time, and it was delicious. The fries were perfectly seasoned and crispy too!
Just be sure to make reservations. So many people wander in for a great dinner and are turned away because the Firetower has a full house.

We had a 6:30 reservation but came an hour early. They sat us within minutes and our food was delicious. Even though it was quite crowded when we were finishing up, we never felt rushed.

Went to Fire Tower for the first time on Thursday and returned every evening after dinner to enjoy the after dinner drinks there. Lively crowd, also friendly and interesting. I gave the noise level a little lower because the table next to ours during dinner was loud. I think I may not be used to loud voices since I am from the south and we tend to keep the conversational voice low during dinner. Overall, a great place for dinner and for enjoying the end of the evening with a nice cocktail.

The restaurant is nice for a step up from the pub, but the food was inconsistent. The crab cake and salad were excellent, but the tempura was more fish and chip batter and the pasta dishes were overcooked and the garlic did not taste fresh. Server was very nice. New chef for this place, please!

Very convenient location in Stratton Village. Appetizers great, but for some reason, the main course were all too salty. The waitress was very nice and friendly and replied that there was a new chef. Hopefully they will get it right.

Ate There Before. Food is very good. This trip the service started out very good but fizzeled at the end. Had to wait a long time for our dinner check and when it came we were overcharged. check corrected quickly but had to wait a long time to pay and get back our receipt. We would still go back but if it happened again we would talk to a manager before leaving the restaurant.

Felt very rushed from the moment we sat down. Usually service is excellent but this time between being rushed and the inattention to our food allergies may have made this a last visit for us. We had people vaping at the table next to us to boot. Didn’t know that’s allowed in a restaurant but apparently anything goes.
