Some of the best clam chowder ever. It is different than most in that the "premium" chowder has cheese on top and is thick. The rest of the food was also excellent. It was fun to see all the fire departments emblems from all over on the walls. Highly recommend it!

The night we went in there was a spur of the moment karaoke night - it was so much fun and the food was excellent! Great atmosphere inside with all the fire memorabilia.

Always going to Mo's when in Florence we decided to try something different. I still wanted clam chowder & bread so on a suggestion from my friend's mom we tried the Firehouse. They have a fancy clam chowder but I just wanted plain old clam chowder. It probably wasn't the worst clam chowder that I have every had but it... More

Bay Street in Old Town gets busy in the summer. There is a reason the other restaurants in Old Town are full...great food & service. Having just returned from a mini vacation and finding our favorite restaurants with a waiting list we opted for this one.It had been a year since we were here. I told my husband there is... More

This unpretentious place is in the Old Town of Florence, along the river with a view of the art-deco era bridge that carries US 101 over the mouth of the Siuslaw River on the southern Oregon "Dune Coast" 60 minutes north of California. The room is set up like a pub, with live music, a bar, and tables, but good... More

The place is filthy and needs a restaurant makeover. Chose not to eat dinner there. The flooring is dirty sticky unsanitary carpeting and should go away ASAP.

Very special chowder here, plus you gotta love THAT much firehouse memorabilia, from all over the world. Other dishes not so interesting but that CHOWDER is as good or better than the swankier, more popular restaurants in Florence. (and I've spent some time comparing!)

We ate here when the other restaurants we tried to get in were full. The food was adequate. Nothing too fancy but nothing outstanding either.

This restaurant serves the BEST clam chowder we have ever eaten. The deluxe chowder is a serving of their yummy chowder with Swiss cheese, dungeness crab meat, shrimp meat and parmesan cheese baked on top. The ambiance is this place is wonderfully interesting and the staff very professional and yet friendly.
