At FireWorks, everyday is a celebration of wood-fired cooking. Keeping the tradition of from–scratch recipes with a contemporary flair, we put a creative twist on classic American comfort foods. Where primal flavors burst to life, celebrate mouthwatering favorites like steak and seafood grilled over a live hickory flame, slow-roasted rotisserie chicken and prime rib (named the best in town), and hand-tossed pizzas baked to order fresh in our custom wood-fired oven. Our children’s menu offers a kid-sized celebration of wood-fired cooking and kid favorites like mac & cheese, pizza, and grilled sirloin. There is a flavor for everyone.

I met a couple of business colleagues in the bar on a Monday at 5:30pm. Very few people in the place. After a short time we were asked to leave because someone 'complained' we were 'too loud'. Having been in the restaurant many times over the last 8 years, we have never been treated so poorly. We will never return.

I came here in November for my Birthday with 2 friends. I had chose the restaurant since none of us had been here yet. Sadly the food nor the service was good. 2 of us had the rotisserie chicken with mac and cheese and roasted potatoes. My other friend had a hamburger. We were surprised the restaurant was not busy...

We loved this place. The food was great. I fell in love with their prime-rib. The place can be crowded and pretty loud at times, but the food is great.

This is a really great restaurant! It's very aesthetic.The fireplace makes for a warm and comfortable setting in the indoor/outdoor eating/drinking section of the restaurant, which is located next to the bar/lounge area. The building's stone exterior beautifies the indoor/outdoor dining section. The restaurant has a wide variety of great tasting food that can fill a large appetite. Service is... More

Myself, my husband, his two sisters and their spouses, and his parents recently went to Fireworks for his mom's birthday lunch. Since it was fairly early in the day, there wasn't a large crowd for lunch. A couple of observations; waiters/waitresses have lost the skill of several things, including: taking the order from the oldest female in the group first,... More

So overall, this was a good experience. I would go back. My boyfriend and I went on Valentines Day. Their listed number was almost always busy.

We had both a chicken and beef entre. Both were very good, even a bit unusual. Salad was exceptional. Unfortunatley, we went on a Saurday night and the place was mobbed. Many tables were occupied by generally young people and both the noise and activities were out of control. Wait staff did the best they could, but service was somewhat... More
