Great Restaurant! Wonderful ambiance, and the food was delicious (I had the Cod with sliced apples). Wonderful Salad Bar, with many types of different items, besides the usual. Good service too! Take a few pictures while you're there!

We chose Fire & Ice at the recommendation of the owner where we were staying in Ripton, VT. The atmosphere was wonderful and very unique. It was worth a visit. The food was average, and a bit pricey for the fare. The salad bar was...More

Extensive salad bar with 50+ items, including peel & eat shrimp, Cabot cheddar cheese, local breads, homemade carrot cake and free Monument Farms milk (try the chocolate!). We offer 9 different dining areas, each with its own unique theme. Families are always welcome-ask about our children's theater area. The Big Moose Pub opens at 4:30, the dining rooms at 5pm, daily. We do serve lunch, but only on Friday & Saturday (beginning at noon) and Sunday (starting at 1pm). Reservations appreciated.
