“Beautiful venue”
Reviewed May 10, 2014 via mobile

Food is good but pricey and the drink menu could add some lighter drinks but well worth a try for the atmosphere alone.

“Great Find”
Reviewed May 3, 2014 via mobile

We were looking for a nice quiet place for a mid-day snack and loved this place. It is an old fire hall that has been beautifully transformed into a bar and restaurant. The onion rings were great and they have a large selection of beer and wine.

“Perfect Romantic Patio for the warm months”
Reviewed April 22, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We recently revisited this place for a birthday brunch last weekend. The brunch items are excellent, I personally suggest the corn beef hash with poached eggs and toast. The pimento and bacon jam dip is also a very rich starter for your brunch plans. They have an array of great alcoholic beverages in the ten dollar range, and off a gorgeous atrium in the super hot months that is great to get that outdoor feel while maintaining the cool environment. The bar area is much like an Irish pub, while the summer months in the evening, the alley is where it's at. A solid cheese and charcuterie board with a solid bottle of Petit Sirah is what keeps us coming back for dinner. You can almost guarantee to fill up on Apps alone. Be sure to sit on the patio outdoors in the summer evenings and enjoy the romantic overhead strings of lights that will give you a nice European feel to your dining.

“Beautiful Building; OK Lunch”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

We stopped in at the Columbia Firehouse for a late Sunday lunch. The building is really lovely, and the glassed in "courtyard" area is especially appealing. But service was painfully slow and the food was fine but nothing more.
