We stopped in on our way through Richmond. My husband is a firefighter and had been dying to try it. We were not disappointed. The atmosphere was very family friendly and the service was excellent, especially as first time customers. The wait staff was spot on with recommendations and service. We sampled the BBQ (which was great) but we opted... More

Went around 6pm on a Saturday, got seated immediately and ordered our drinks. After ordering food we waited over 45 minutes, server came by the table twice stating food would be right up both times. Apparently there was a large group in another area, restaurant appeared to be very empty. Food arrived and it really was not worth the wait.... More

This place is not bad or good, it is just what you would expect from a bar. Several dishes of fried food. The pulled pork BBQ was good but not fantastic. The service was awesome and they have a wonderful out door seating area.

A fun place to enjoy some drinks and dancing. The "firetruck bar" is a cool touch. The service was pretty good. I've definitely been to better bars though.

Came for my birthday, and the staff wanted to go home early. So we were told the meal would be appetizers only cause they wanted to clean the filthy kitchen and go home early. We were appalled by the manager agreeing but not coming out to tell us to our face that they didn't care about my birthday event, but... More

The seat yourself option is not a good one because no one notices that you're there. A good ten minutes pass and we ended up flagging someone down to send a server over. We order our food and 35 minutes later..our appetizer comes...with our meal. No silverware or napkins on the table. The food was very good...we ordered the barn... More

Our group was large, about five couples, however no one seemed to notice 10 patrons with no drinks or food, so we asked for service with no luck and had to go to the bar to get our own drinks. Finally about 45 min. A waitress showed up and took our orders, food came quickly, however we had to go... More

The bar is located in West Broad Village. Dim red lanterns and a Fire engine truck inside it visible from the street made me curious. I came in specifically to watch a game tonight, plus have a drink or two. Soft rock was playing. Beer selection is poor. Bud, Sam Adams, some local brew and the like. My beer was... More
