Good Q! Tom Seaton is a great guy, and he makes you feel very welcome. The décor is awesome, and the service is great. Can't beat it (except maybe Ridgewood BBQ).

The atmosphere was really nice and food was very good. They seem to always be busy so it must be good. I have visited here more than twice and both times were good.

This restaurant is in a building that used to be a working fire hall. Try the barbecue beans--they are great. Not only is this a great place to eat, the catering is top notch too. Friendly servers and good eats.

Firehouse is a super place to eat! The food is delicious and the atmosphere is great. Really like the fact that it is such a nice restaurant and they don't feel the need to serve alcohol! Great place to take your family!

Great, great landmark restaurant. The food is great! The atmosphere is very casual and relaxed. The staff has such a unique genuine concern for the guest's experience, which is so rare this day. Really always a joy. Lastly, the restaurant is spotless!

Ribs were dry, chicken was tough and they were out of pulled pork. Ribs were also not as tender as I like. Service was good though.

This food is so tasty that I go there for lunch then stop and bring home dinner. The sliced pork sandwiches are tasty with the great tasting homemade sauce, but my favorite is the salad with their homemade house dressing.
