Description: Firehouse No. 1 Bar & Grill is a outstanding San Jose destination when you're looking for great food, delicious drinks, and friendly people. Gastro pub quality fare made from scratch in addition to impressive daily specials. A vast and well stocked bar that includes hand crafted cocktails in addition to draft and bottle beers, and select wines. Be sure to participate in the occasional whole bar sing-alongs, or cheer the bartenders on as they prepare exotic flaming drinks and smash bottles behind the bar. Lots of LCD screens when there is a sporting event or Sharks game - or just digital flames all around late at night. Open from 11AM until 2AM weekdays with happy hour from 3pm to 7pm. On weekends, open from 4PM until 2AM. We have full table service both inside and on the patio. Patio heaters when its cold.

“Nice find in San Pedro Square”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

This was a nice find in San Pedro Square, as my fellow reviewers have stated. I really appreciated the service that we received and we really enjoyed the wine and draft beer selection. The wedge salad was especially fresh and the meatballs and bone arrow appetizers were both delicious. We sat outside to take advantage of the nice afternoon weather, so if you have a chance, I would try to sit outside, if the weather permits. I would eat at this restaurant again and would recommend to travelers looking for a good and unique place to eat or have a few adult beverages.

Four us us had lunch on a frday afternoon. Service was excellent and the food was very good. The asparagus appetizer was terrific and the selection of drafts is good. Well worth a visit anytime.

“A great find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

We stumbled onto Firehouse No 1 while looking for a spot to eat in San Pedro Square before a Sharks game recently, and are glad we did! The happy hour specials, friendly and accomodating staff, and fantastic food all made it a great time.

Our favorites were the pork belly sliders, brussels sprouts, mac n cheese, and beet salad

Park in the deck across the street, and go here!

“$3 draughts, great burger + steak bites”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

Had a couple of friends visiting me in San Jose and we were looking for a decent place to drink and grab some food.
The place is pretty cool, kind of firehouse theme, decent location close to San Pedro Market square. The steak bites were really tender and delicious and the burger was out of this world. We got the recommended Memphis burger as well as the tri-tip sandwich.... both very good, but the burger... was truely one of the top 5 burgers I've ever had in my life... the bacon, sauce, the onion rings... seriously.. you have to try it.
