“Best pancakes ever on Sept 21, 2012”
Reviewed September 30, 2012 via mobile

We had pancakes here - one of us had the sweet potato cakes and the other blueberry. Without question they were the best EVER anyplace any time. It will be a regular stop. They were flaky and huge. Wonderful breakfast and the service was perfect.

“Cool Place, Ok Food”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

The firehouse history and theme is fun and I was really hoping to get some awesome food... but the food was just ok. The burger was a big 1/2 pounder, very greasy and falling apart. The bbq sauce made a layer of a burnt - tar like - goo on the bottom that didn't taste very good. The fries were the best part of the meal. The service was pretty slow with only half the restaurant full. I will look for a different place to eat next time.

“This couldn't be the best place in town for a burger.”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

Only open for breakfast and lunch during "winter season". Salad was delicious but the burger eater at out table said it was too sloppy and the bun was too thick.

“Nice Decor”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

Lovely old firehouse converted into a restaurant. Good burgers and enjoyed the sweet potato fries! Service a little slow, but we also enjoyed a lengthy talk with our waitress, a young woman from Bulgaria. Was too stuffed for the ice cream!
