It was like restaurants were when I was young- they exuded a quiet class, as does Fire Creek. Spotlessly, immaculately clean, excellent service, reasonable pricing, and delicious food- can't ask for more! We were greeted upon entering, seated immediately, and met our waitress- pleasant, polite, outgoing, and knowledgable. The spinach/artichoke dip was fantastic. My New York strip was lovely- tender...

While many of these restaurants provide diners with an excellent meal and service, it is important to know that there are locally owned and operated restaurants in the area... More

I stopped to eat here because of other people's reviews and was not disappointed! I had the Chicken Marsala which was wonderful! Staff was knowledgeable and friendly. A little pricey but I thought it was worth it. Very nice, cozy atmosphere.

My wife & I tried Fire Creek for Valentine's Day for the first time. We both enjoyed the options on their menu, and enjoyed our meals (both had steaks). I kept commenting on how I liked their atmosphere. What sets it apart for many of the more trendy nice restaurants is you feel like you have more privacy. it's quite... More

Instead the appetizer was a single piece of mozzarella (large) that was fried and topped with marinara sauce. It was better than any fried mozzarella I have ever had. Our salads were... More
