Ok service Ok food

The atmosphere seemed a little cold to my liking, our waiter only came over to us when we went out of our way to get their attention.

The atmosphere is really nice. Feels like a rich, cozy steakhouse. The selection of micro beer is really good, too. The menu offers a good variety, and there is something for everyone, for sure. The service was friendly and good. Which brings us to the actual food. It was average, hence the average rating. We enjoyed it. There was nothing... More

We used to go every week or two for a couple of months, than they changed the menu and it went to hell. Prices went up and quality and choices went down. It is sad to see, it was a favorite of my wifes and mine.

My husband and I visited 4-13-15, left with food poisoning. Called restaurant the next day, did not care. Service is better now that the screaming blond is gone, the salad bar tasted ok but we both came down with diarrhea and vomiting at the same time. Thank God my house has 2 baths. I'm done giving second chances and the... More

Cold food, questionable service, cold food again, excuses, soup on the soup/salad bar deconstructed (never leave a cream soup sit for long). The only decent part of dinner was the glass of water, the bread and the salad bar. Sent dinner back, twice. "Mango Salsa is supposed to be chilled", I'm told. Well okay, but the fish underneath it should... More

Whether one chooses to use the dining room or just sit at the bar, eating there is pleasant. Their buffets, as well as the Sunday brunch are very good for the price which includes a full salad bar for the light eaters..

When we went to Firewood the first time the service was really bad but the food was OK. We thought maybe this was an off-night for service so we decided to try it again (and again) since there were more things on the menu we wanted to try. I'm really not sure why the place is so busy, since the... More

A little pricey but the food was pretty good. We had about 10 people and the wait staff very efficient. The wait staff also people friendly! Our group had a good time and wasn't rushed into leaving. Will come back!

Late October 2014: Went here for a large catered function. Service was mediocre and the trays of food left a lot to be desired. Gelatinous sliced beef, salty pork, heavy-heavy potatoes with little taste. The locals enjoyed the food, but we found it sorely lacking in taste and presentation. The room was nice and the warm bread delicious. Will not... More
