We had read all the reviews and figured this place was pretty good and yet we were still blown away with just how good it was. I got the full rack of ribs and it was an absolute work of art. Big meaty ribs, cooked perfectly and seasoned just right. The sides were ample and delicious. Our server was great,... More

Great place to eat with a good menu. Atmosphere is interesting especially if there is a firefighter in the family. I would recommend this restaurant for families or a couple's date night.

Wonderful BBQ, not overly sugared up, great homemade sauce. The salad is great and the best cherry tomatoes and croutons ever! We also like the staff. They are pleasant, presentable and we've never had bad service or food here after 15 years of coming here! Lucky to have this local dining spot!

I've gone to The Firehouse for years and have never took the time to write a review. This is some of the best barbecue and accompaniments I've had ANYWHERE. If you're up to taking the stairs, the upstairs dining room is more conducive to quieter conversation or even a business lunch. Love the iced tea as well as the pulled... More

We were there for dinner. It was great as usual. I have been frustrated with them running out of the ribs sometimes. Nothing more frustrating than driving from Bristol and waiting 20 minutes to have your waiter tell you they are out of ribs. lol Well I got my ribs and they were great! My date had never been there... More

We have been stopping there for years when in Johnson City. The food was excellent as always. but I gave it an average because the staff was some what lacking. They were on target in terms of getting our food out in a timely manner and keeping drinks refilled, but we felt hurried and were seated alone in the very... More
