Having visited this restaurant again after a gap of a couple of years we were pleasantly surprised by the quality and quantity of the food. The quality of the ingredients and their cooking was noticeable and we thoroughly enjoyed some of the most reasonably priced food to be found in Florence. Based on our experience we would recommend The Firehouse... More

Good points were sitting along the sunny sidewalk with a view of the bridge & Siuslaw river & a very friendly server. BUT - "deluxe award winning chowder" was not good - overly rich, drown in two kinds of cheese & served with soggy toast - uh!! The chowder @ Bridgewater is 1000% better -- sadly we were looking for... More

We were advised to eat here by our hotel receptionist. When we arrived the inside smelled of smoke. Our waitress really had no interest in caring for our table of 8 and did not bring the crayons she promised and other items such as water took a while to get. When I saw her walk by I turned into her... More

Usually a nearly-empty restaurant makes me leery, but I trusted the advertising and hoped for the best. We had lunch on a Friday at The Firehouse, a little early. While waiting for the order, I found patches from two cities in Utah, and I trust my firefighters. The clam chowder truly lives up to the billing. It is award winning.... More

The smell of the garlic fries brought us here. They were awesome and so was the clam chowder. My husband raved about the seafood chowder (it was called something different). The waitress was super friendly and gave us a special Sprite concoction for our son who was resting in the car nauseated from motion sickness. It did the trick! We... More

There are plenty of places to eat in the Historic District of Florence, OR. Like so-called "historic districts" in most of the cities on the coast, it is where the tourists flock .... and eat. So, generally in the restaurants in the district, atmosphere and hype is major and food, often pricey and minor. The Firehouse Restaurant is somewhat of... More

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
