Description: Firehouse No. 1 Bar & Grill is a outstanding San Jose destination when you're looking for great food, delicious drinks, and friendly people. Gastro pub quality fare made from scratch in addition to impressive daily specials. A vast and well stocked bar that includes hand crafted cocktails in addition to draft and bottle beers, and select wines. Be sure to participate in the occasional whole bar sing-alongs, or cheer the bartenders on as they prepare exotic flaming drinks and smash bottles behind the bar. Lots of LCD screens when there is a sporting event or Sharks game - or just digital flames all around late at night. Open from 11AM until 2AM weekdays with happy hour from 3pm to 7pm.

I think they are trying but they have a ways to go. Cool pub ambiance with a very nice outdoor seating area. Decent service with friendly staff. I order a beer. They don't have it. I order a wine. They don't have it. I order a main. They don't have it. After the second occurrence I get concerned about how... More

Stopped in for an early dinner. Good but not huge selection of beer. The beer menu hits all the major points, from Pilsners to Stouts. They seem to push the cocktail menu pretty hard, but didn't try any of those. Got some wings and mac and cheese. Both were outstanding. The use a Mediterranean spice rub on the wings and... More

I have been impressed by the quality of the food you can get here, it really lives up being called a gastropub. Add a good selection of craft beer to your food pairing and you get a meal that has kept me coming back.

I did not like this place one bit and i hate how much the prices are. One thing though, sitting outside was a great experience. I tried to order the drinks and they were as bad as it gets especially the cosmo cocktail....Not the best... About the food, it was great so i cannot complain. The location is also excellent,...

Had to try the GastroPub for a second time to ensure it wasn't a fluke. Beet tartare and their scrumptuous wings and our son had a steak. Normally, I don't order wings, but these were tossed in a coriander/chipotle seasoning -- not greasy or overly sauced. We had to order a second appetizer! The service was excellent, attentive and clever.... More

Firehouse No. 1 is among several restaurants and bars on San Pedro, most of which have seating on the sidewalk. Firehouse stands out because of their outstanding food. The menu is quite limited but the gourmet dishes are delicious. I had the flat iron steak that had an outstanding sauce. The shoestring potatoes were also very good. My wife had... More

Chicken breast seasoned to perfection. Recommended by our server and she was correct. I started with the shoestring fries for a appetizer. Don't know what the mayo dipping sauce was but it made for a great new taste treat! Love the outside seating. Friendly staff.
