The bar is located in West Broad Village. Dim red lanterns and a Fire engine truck inside it visible from the street made me curious. I came in specifically to watch a game tonight, plus have a drink or two. Soft rock was playing. Beer selection is poor. Bud, Sam Adams, some local brew and the... read more

The place looks very small walking in the front door. It would have been better to put the fire truck in the center for a focal point. Service was lack luster and food was subpar. I would definitely go elsewhere in Short Pump.

We ended up here after burger Bach had a 30 minute wait and we had a hungry toddler. The hostesses seemed annoyed and confused and gave us 1 crayon with the kids menu. The waitress was pleasant, but everything else was disappointing. The men's room had no paper towels. The menus were literally falling apart. The food was fine, but... More

The bartenders and wait staff are excellent. THe food is good and the night life is just what short pump needed.

I only went to the bar for this bar/restaurant. The bartender did not know what an IPA was so I asked for a pint which he also didn't understand so I gave up and had a Bud Light. Almost no selection of beers whatsoever and the bar is either next to the door (terrible draft) or awkwardly in the corner.... More

Ate here after it was recommended by my hotel. Wish I hadn't. Was completely ignored for literally 15 minutes upon arrival. The server, when she finally came, was pleasant enough. However, her recommendation of the BBQ nachos ended up a poor one. They were large but despite being covered in pulled pork and cheese, were severely lacking in flavor. The... More

I hoped for some good BBQ here as almost all the other restaurants nearby have been quite good during my recent stays. This one didn't live up. The bartender was too busy talking to the two regulars at the other end of the bar to fill my drink or get my food before it was almost ice cold. The BBQ... More

I had so much hope for this place. With a desire for Bar B Q I was drawn to the firehouse decor and a menu confirming that a host of bar b q selections were featured. After sitting at the bar and studying the menu I chose the two meat BarBQ platter of pulled pork and beef brisket. Unfortunately the... More

OK, overall not bad, but it just has that typical suburbia sterile feel. The food is your average bar fare, the service wasn't horrible but is wasn't great either. The Fire Service theme is the major draw and they've done a good job with that. There's a Fire Truck converted to bar and lots of gear on display. The prices... More

I stopped in at around 10:30, as I had just got into town and asked the front desk for somewhere that served food late. They sent me to Halligan. Upon arrival, I was greeted coldly. I asked for a menu and asked if they were still serving. The girl frowned and said "what time is it" and then said "yeah".... More
