My first time to this restaurant, I was sure it would be perfect for Oliver. My second time, i realized how limited the menu was, so I had the calamari, for the second time. DH had lasagna, which seemed like a winner. We weren't too pleased with the service but thought it would still be ok. Last night we went... More

The last time. I was there I ordered the potato skins and chicken wings. The potato skins were not available because they are "brought in" and the order wasn't in yet, the waitress told us. The chicken wings were awful and tasted 5 days old. (which were $13 or so, so should at least be cooked fresh!) I did complain... More

Hamburger was ok, nothing out of the ordinary - average. Not sure if patties are homemade or fresh. Chicken burger was described as dry, as Chicken was cut up into strips and put on burger. Chicken would have been more juicy if left as a whole breast.

We were at the bistro under new owners a couple of weeks ago. Service was excellent. Good food, but clearly they were just getting into the groove, having just opened. Tonight we attended the grand opening. I had calamari. Excellent with small salad and tzatsiki. Husband had lasagna. I tried it and it was delicious! Made with fettuccini noodles(I think),... More

new owners and new menu! The food was horrible! Everything tasted like it came from the frozen food section! The meat was ground pressed garbage! Nothing we had was prepared fresh! Except the salad. Our waitress didn't even know half the items in the menu! The waitress did try very hard to please us! Won't be eating there again! Unless... More

The Firehall is just o.k. But what really got to me was that the hostess did not like me using the handicap bathroom, saying it was the principle of the thing. What she didn't realize, is that the handicap bathroom is geared for the disabled to use with ease, but is not only for the disabled, unlike a handicap parking... More

We have gone to this restaurant many times in the past and decided to try out the new owners and their menu. It is now known as Pappa's Firehall Bistro. It was a Monday evening and we were surprised at so many customers but surmised all curious about the "new" old place. The servers were harried and inexperienced. Seems some... More

We recently went as part of a party of 10 to this restaurant for a birthday dinner. The place used to be called the "Firehall Bistro". It is now "Pappa's Firehall Bistro". Due to it's design the restaurant can be very noisy. Therefore at our large table we were really only able to communicate with the folks next to us.... More
