“Very friendly and beautiful property”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Stopped here on a short trip and was very happy we did. We walked in and enjoyed the numerous amount of fire-fighting memorabilia. The bartender waited on us and was very nice to talk to. She gave us suggestions of area activities and was very friendly. We ordered several apps. They were good and perfect portions for the 3 of us to sample.

We ordered the pizza and was surprised how tasty it was. (We live in CT and, in my opinion, have some of the best pizza places outside of NYC)

I would recommend a visit...also our server told us that they do a nice holiday decoration with over a dozen Christmas Trees...

“Fun and food in a Firehouse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

We ate dinner at Ladder 1 this evening. There were lots of choices on the menu including daily specials., It was very busy for a Tues evening. All of our menu options were good. The decor entertaining. We found the staff to be friendly.
This is a restaurant,not an attraction. We were there with an adult daughter,so the choices that follow are not appropriate.
Parking is limited when it is very busy.

“Really interesting setting and food is good too.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

The Firehouse is a really interesting restaurant in Barre. We loved the old firehouse setting and the menu had a really good selection of food. All of us found something we liked. A good stop along the way!

“Great Food with a Great Atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

One of our family members is a firefighter so we were thrilled to have the experience of eating in a restored firehouse! The menu was extensive and the food we ordered was fantastic! Lots to look at during the dining experience! We'll be back!!

“Best place for a burger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Very comfortable atmosphere. We go at least every couple of months. Food isn't exotic and the pizza could use more sauce but over all it is friendly and comfortable not rushed. Good choice for families of any age, friends meeting out for a drink or couples grabbing a bite after work.
