Reviewed May 6, 2014

Firehaus is a restaurant with a "firehouse" theme-- the markings of a fire station-- the food was pretty good. The atmosphere is a little loud-- restaurant is in Campustown of the U of I

“Nicer looking campus bar”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

It is really hard to review a bar from your college town. The nostalgia factor gets in the way of objectivity! I've always liked Firehaus but it was never one of my haunts. I like how they have large tables, and how the front is open-air. They have lots of daily drink specials, and the atmosphere isn't sketchy. Dim lighting, very red in there. Well I guess it is a firehouse. Despite it "looking" nicer than some other campus bars (it's really just that it's newer, I'm sure), you are still going to run into some silly silly people. Last time we were here, a drunk guy was talking to us and wouldn't leave, so we took his flip flops and hid them in the girls bathroom. So you know, it's not a total class act of a bar, but it's pretty clean and well-maintaned compared to some of the other options.

“Decent bar food portion size varies.”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

Have ordered both meals and just appetizers. Pretzel nuggets are good. Nachos a bit lame with their cheese sauce. Atmosphere changes from restaurant by day...bar by night.

Very good food, service was average. Chili is pretty decent. Will return again, different from other restaurants on campus.
