The restaurant is run by Paris Rinder-Goddard, the son of one of the original founders of Fire & Ice.
He continues the tradition of Fire & Ice, and is clearly loved by the staff as well as the customers.
Here you will be served the absolute best food that is local and regional.
And you’ll enjoy it in an eclectic and beautiful setting.
Fire & Ice was founded by an architect, a cookbook author, a bartender and a waitress in 1974.
The name Fire and Ice comes from the work of the famous local poet, Robert Frost.
The words simply inspire the fire for cooking and the ice for drink mixing.
For over four decades Fire & Ice has grown through many renovations to become a landmark dinner house and museum, which happens to serve great food & drink.
The casually elegant and fun atmosphere includes an original 1921 Hackercraft motorboat, WWI wooden airplane propellers and nearly 1000 black and white photos.
Many are old family photos, and even more are gifts from their guests.
You’ll also find original paintings, antique wooden skis, snow shoes, tennis rackets and the library is filled with beautiful old books.
Fishing and boating are more than décor, they are family traditions.
Check out the fly rods, canoes, mounted fish, oars, paddles and even photos of the ones that got away!
Come in the back door to Moose Pub!
With 7 televisions and a more casual atmosphere, it’s the best bar scene in town.
Enjoy happy hour with daily drink specials and discounts on food.
