Being a group of firefighters we decided to stop for a beer and a tee shirt. Beer was great but shirt sales were between are you kidding and aint no way. I don't mind a man making some profit but damn $32 for a Tee Shirt. We are firefighters, not investment bankers. Have fun on the island!

We stopped at the firehouse due to it's location on the boardwalk with great views of the bay and beach.
A bucket of Red Stripe beer was ice cold and reasonably priced, unfortunately that is the end of the good stuff.
Food took an age to arrive, my Mahi Mahi was overcooked, nobody was impressed by their meals to be honest.
Our waitress had no real interest in serving us either.
A shame really when they have a fantastic location but that is the only thing they have going for them.

We didn't eat here, but it is a great place to get a bucket of beer for a very reasonable price. Take a left just after you get off the water taxi at the boardwalk. The Firehouse Bar is on your right usually with someone out front peddling beer. A bucket of six for five USD...can't beat it!

We swung in for a beer and a quick snack after some shopping. We ordered the calamari and conch fritters. The calamari looked and tasted more like onion rings and the conch fritters seemed fried beyond belief. Perhaps we ordered the wrong thing. We did enjoy the scenery and atmosphere but it wasn't the highlight of the day for sure.

We searched the Boardwalk for a great place to relax on the beach and grab a bite to eat, and Firehouse didn't disappoint. We are honestly really surprised at all the negative reviews here. For $20 we got a great spot right on Philipsburg's beautiful beach complete with two chairs, an umbrella, and four beverages. We also grabbed lunch here, and they delivered it right to our chairs on the beach. We ordered the jerk chicken, and it was phenomenal. It came with delicious fried sweet plantains and a rice combo. Once of our favorite parts of our Honeymoon cruise upon the Jewel of the Seas.
