The Sunday brunch was a great value. Some of the items were 'store bought' and not made on site - still very good. Eggs Benedict were over cooked. Nice varied selection of food items.

he food is reasonably priced, the quality is satisfying, the staff pleasant and the décor is phenomenal. This is an old firehouse converted into a restaurant. It has many old fireman photos, tools of the trade and historical pieces throughout. An interesting place to enjoy a meal.

We visited this restaurant on the advise of our B and B and we are glad we did. This restaurant is housed in an old firehouse and have decorated it to reflect it. It is a fun place to be in. The menu is well rounded as well as the beer and wine list. My wife got the crab cakes... More

We were advised to have lunch here while vacationing in Erie, Pa. We were extremely happy to have been advised. The food was excellent, service was excellent, and the devote was fantastic. We would advise anyone going thru Erie to stop here. The restaurant has all the charm of a 1900 fire station, including helmets, rolling hose stock,and of course,... More

This is a historic firehouse with wonderful fire department items throughout the restaurant. We ate here years ago and decided try it again while in town. Wonderful, good food , good service, and good prices.

Stopped for dinner after checking TA to find a spot. I like finding unique stops & this hits the mark. The pics don't do it justice. Lovey large dinning with tables & booths. They could easily accommodate a large party. Historic firehouse with great fire department historic items throughout. Bar area was large, warm & welcoming. Bar also had booths... More

This restaurant has one of the best Sunday brunches around. The food is of high quality and very fresh. The desserts are very rich in taste and quality. The atmosphere is great, being located in an old fire station. I highly recommend making reservations if you don't want to wait to be seated.

Been this restaurant in the past but this time our server must have been new. Had to keep reminding her of what we order and what we needed. But overall the food was great.

My husband, college-aged son, and I ate dinner at Pufferbelly on French in October. We loved the atmosphere in the old firehouse and the food and service were great! My husband ordered the brie & apple toasted bruschetta, salad, and horseradish crusted salmon. My son ordered the cheddar broccoli soup, salad, and Madagascar steak. I ordered the cup of chili,...
