This is a very good place to eat and meet. They have been at this location for many years and their food, service and atmosphere are great. It is just off Main Street in Danbury, Connecticut and draws a diverse group of customers. Family dining or business meetings can be found here and there is enough variety for anyone.

Very good food in downtown Danbury old Firehouse. Starting with chips and salsa to the Pork Carnita quesadilla to the Fresh Bayou Style Blackened Tilapia all were excellent. Good choices of beer and service by Joe is to be commended, will be back.

We started with the best salsa we ever ate. My sesame tuna was cooked just right and my husband's pork shank was huge and succulent. Even our picky son loved his fries and burger. The building was a handsome old firehouse with stained glass and exposed beams.

Service is friendly, never crowded, food is tasty. Sandwiches and simple salads are good bets. Happy hours are a great deal with terrific food and drink specials…especially the calamari, seared tuna and shrimp. Their cooking classes are superb and lunch club members get super $$$ deals, daily. The atmosphere is very whimsical and quirky ….an old firehouse with treasures from... More

Just went last night with my wife and ordered drinks and appetizers. The hostess was at the door to greet us with a nice smile and explained the seating and menus. Sat in a table for two in the bar area overlooking the sunken dinning area. 7:00pm Friday night and not many in the dinning room I was not confident... More

We highly recommend the Two Steps Downtown Grill in the heart of down town Danbury, CT. We happened to go when there was a great Danbury Restaurant week special going on the last week of February 2016, so had excellent meals which included a bottle of wine to share per couple. Two Steps is on the backside of main street... More

The sandwich would have been edible but the bottom bun was a soggy mess so there was no way to safely pick it up. Real disappointment.
