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. On weekends, open from 4PM until 2AM. We have full table service both inside and on the patio. Patio heaters when its cold.

Love this place!

We loved it so much we went twice in one day! The first time we had some light apps and drinks, and just went back for drinks later. Loved the atmosphere of it, and love San Pedro square!

This is a cute little gastropub in the heart of downtown San Jose. Love that there are a few outdoor tables on the sidewalk. Food is definitely good and interesting (not your typical British pub fare) - more creative California gastropub - but the service was really awkward. Our server was pretty clueless, and it was frustrating. Despite asking several... More

Stopped in for a quick bite around dinner time. Good selection of craft beers on tap and bottles. I had the pork belly small plate and it very tasty. The citrus glaze went great with the saltiness of the pork. Very flavorful and tasty. I also tried the home-made chips they were made very well. Excellent crispness with a dip... More

Great service, even better food: fabulous salads for starters, some bacon mac and cheese, and of course a steak! Don't leave it out when in San Jose.

We stopped at Firehouse for a few drinks! The drinks are amazing! Don't be fooled by the small glass some of the drinks come in. I'm here to tell you, looks are deceiving especially for the Blood Orange Manhattan. Can't wait to go back and try their food and other tasty drinks!

The food was good, and fun was had by all! We sat on the patio and the food was excellent. We started with some appetizers and worked our way through dinner and dessert. It was a wonderful evening to sit outside and leisurely talk and eat and eat some more. I only wish we lived closer, we would definitely frequent... More

Having moved here recently, we're still checking out the many restaurants in San Jose, looking for a new favorite place. Depending on the neighborhood, there are usually some excellent choices, especially downtown San Jose and near San Pedro Square. We've visited Firehouse No. 1 Gastropub several times and it's quickly becoming a preferred pick. Each time we've visited the Firehouse,... More

We stopped at the Firehouse after reading the reviews, and were not disappointed! There are a fair amount of beers on the menu and on tap, including a fabulous berry cider! The food was all great, with a huge focus on the warm spinach salad with porcini mushrooms and blue cheese, loved it! Apparently they are a hot spot though,... More

Business dinner for 2 had apps of pork belly lettuce wraps and wings, both were great! We had the pork chops and steak dinners, again stellar! By the way great beers and Kraft gin and tonic were on point! Dessert was some ginger cookie with marshmallows,chocolate and bourbon, absolutely fantastic.
