This is my second review of Old Firehall after several very enjoyable visits since. Again the food met our highest expectations, but our waitress did not live up to the high standards that the kitchen has delivered time and time again. We were left missing the friendliness, professionalism and attentiveness of service that we have grown used to at Firehall.

Enjoyed a delicious steak grilled to perfection accompanied by a creamy Caesar salad. Wine choices are adequate not extensive. It's a small venue so reservations are in your best interest in the busy season. The metal chair legs scrape on the tiled floor creating a disturbing noise. Wait staff should not shove the chairs! We had to stop talking till... More

I ate good. The only thing was that the second course was already served while I hadn't finished my first one. I can live with that though ;)

The food was awful. The pasta was swimming in oil and it wasn't even olive oil. Expensive too! The ambiance was nice. Good if you wanted a beer and conversation!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. In your review you state that your pasta was swimming in oil and that it wasn't even olive oil. I can assure that it was olive oil, as to how much olive oil was in your pasta I cannot say as it was not brought to our attention at that... More

Stopped in at this restaurant and we were glad we did. Decor is reminiscent of Greece/ Mediterranean influenced and the food is excellent. My favorites were the 12oz sirloin steak and the lamb shank. Great food at a great price.

We were drawn to this location because of the location and the old firehall incorporated into the design of the restaurant. The sign out front all peeling and in poor condition should have been a sign of things to come. The dinner menus were dropped onto the table and it did not seem to strike the server odd that there...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are shocked to learn of this, as we have not received a complaint recently. In your review you state that the draught beer was flat and warm and undrinkable. We have not ever had a complaint with respect to the temperature of our beer, and a quick check of... More

My family came upon this restaurant after not being able to get a table at the winery restaurant next door. Both the service and the food were excellent. All three of us were very pleased we our dinners.

We happened upon the Old Firehall on a very rainy day as we were looking for lunch. It's small (8-10 tables) and we weren't sure we'd get in. We did, and were we ever glad! In fact, we liked it so much we went back for lunch the next two days too! George, the waiter, could not have been more... More

Amazing escargot comparable to Paris and the pasta was great. My husband had the calamari and agreed that it was equally delicious. Thanks to the great service and the chef for the amazing evening out! Wine selection was nice too.

Show up to grab a bite to eat on the patio. Waitress was friendly enough. I ordered a salad with no onions. I sent it back. She brought out our bruschetta; it was four slices of thick (+1") dry bread with flour coating the whole bottom of it, with maybe a tbsp of bruschetta on top. It was dry and... More

Thank you for your review. In your review you believe the quality and management have gone downhill over the last year or two due to the meal you ordered and received. I can assure you this is not the case. The Items you mentioned in your review have been staples of our establishment since the beginning 20 yrs. ago and... More
