Description: Firehouse No. 1 Bar & Grill is a outstanding San Jose destination when you're looking for great food, delicious drinks, and friendly people. Gastro pub quality fare made from scratch in addition to impressive daily specials. A vast and well stocked bar that includes hand crafted cocktails in addition to draft and bottle beers, and select wines. Be sure to participate in the occasional whole bar sing-alongs, or cheer the bartenders on as they prepare exotic flaming drinks and smash bottles behind the bar. Lots of LCD screens when there is a sporting event or Sharks game - or just digital flames all around late at night. Open from 11AM until 2AM weekdays with happy hour from 3pm to 7pm. On weekends, open from 4PM until 2AM. We have full table service both inside and on the patio. Patio heaters when its cold.

Went to a birthday lunch here, had read about it but didn't know much about the place. Kinda small place, walked right by it without knowing it was there, used to be the 'Shark and Rose' a while back.
Food is exceptionally good, and you can tell they take pride in its preparation and delivery. Had the Housemade potato chips, porkbelly sliders, 8 oz flat iron steak and to drink, a mermaids red and a kwak.
The food was delicious and portions were fair to large. The steak was juicy, prepared medium rare, to order, with lots of beefy flavor. Porkbelly sliders were good, without being super fatty.
Great grub here, good for casual dining or drinks and a hearty meal.

Went here on a Sunday evening by myself on a work trip. I had the cheeseburger (lettuce wrapped) and side salad. The burger was juicy and the salad was a perfect size. I walked away stuffed. I will come back again.

Friendly people and a great mix of drinks and food. Pork Belly sliders was one of the favorites. Lots of good drinks, and beers.

This was a nice find in San Pedro Square, as my fellow reviewers have stated. I really appreciated the service that we received and we really enjoyed the wine and draft beer selection. The wedge salad was especially fresh and the meatballs and bone arrow appetizers were both delicious. We sat outside to take advantage of the nice afternoon weather, so if you have a chance, I would try to sit outside, if the weather permits. I would eat at this restaurant again and would recommend to travelers looking for a good and unique place to eat or have a few adult beverages.
