We visited the Firehouse Grill to celebrate our friend's birthday in the month of February. Our Filet Mignon were 'blackened' - and we ordered them medium rare. They to fix the problem and failed again, with one guy trying to convince us that a ribeye is better than a filet mignon. My wife gave up - and I decided to... More

We are always looking for somewhere new to eat. We are not bar fans so I won't comment on the bar/drink atmosphere or quality. When we arrived, we were greeted with cheery "hellos". It happened to be $1 taco night. My husband ordered 8 of them...four hard and four soft...they were very good and filled full. I ordered the shrimp... More

Thought this place was a nice, cute, hometown bar. And when the waiter told us all drafts were $1 (it was a Tuesday night), we were loving it even more. He named off about 10 beers on draft too, so we decided to try something new and got Sam Adams White Ale. Well a bit later, after 3 beers each,... More
