Indulging in Culinary Creativity on Toby Creek
After a year of unexpected twists and turns, Fire and Ice on Toby Creek finally found its groove. A newly renovated outdoor dining space has made this Trucksville eatery one of the hottest spots in town. Between a gorgeous waterfall feature, a fancy fire pit and live music every Friday and Sunday, Fire and Ice’s unmatched atmosphere makes it the perfect summer hang.
Of course, ambiance is just one of Fire and Ice’s strong suits. Recently, the restaurant challenged expectations with a new lunch menu. During our visit, General Manager Heather Groblewski helped us experience the restaurant’s new features to the fullest extent. With the assistance of an awesome staff, we tried an array of delicious, creative options.
Fire and Ice specializes in all things unique. Even seemingly traditional menu items involve new and interesting twists. Whether you prefer something classic, like a charcuterie board, or more adventurous, like the Sesame Seared Ahi Tuna Salad, you’ll easily find a personal favorite.
The restaurant also features plenty of signature dishes. The Orange Cognac Salad has been a staple practically since its debut. On the flip side, the Fire and Ice Burger offers a fresh take on an old favorite. Fire and Ice even has a Signature Sangria, both white and red, which makes the perfect pick-me-up on a hot afternoon.
Fire and Ice’s adaptability allows all guests to enjoy their dining experience. For example, the grilled cheese can be kept simple, but you can also upgrade with jumbo lump crab meat. On the side, you can keep it classic with fresh cut fries or make things interesting by opting for sweet potato fries (pro-tip: try the maple dipping sauce with these).
Over the course of the meal, our server Jonelle went above and beyond. She explained that Fire and Ice is the first place she’s worked to encourage creativity and value personal connection. Between serving and bartending, she really gets to know patrons and it shows. “When you go out to eat, you have to be taken care of,” Jonelle said. It’s not hard to see that the staff at Fire and Ice truly practice what they preach.
You’ll find Fire and Ice at 111 South Main Street in Trucksville. You can dine indoors or outdoors in the new space. Check out Fire and Ice’s website to view their menu. Be sure to follow their Facebook and Instagram to keep up with specials and live music schedules.
