We specialize in southern style smoked pork, chicken, and brisket, and serve it up in a comfortable, nostalgic atmosphere. Live Blues music can be enjoyed every Friday and Saturday night.

My husband and I recently had dinner here on a Friday night and it was very good. I tried the key lime pie and it was DELICIOUS! They said it was homemade and it definitely tasted like it. A good local place to eat!

Housed in what was Richmond's first firehouse in a building that dates back to the 1800s, Firehouse BBQ and Blues is a great spot for lunch, dinner or drinks with a side of live music. The building features incredibly detailed murals, and the food is solid down-home-style barbecue along the lines of ribs, pulled pork, and brisket. Don't miss the cheesy potatoes! A fun, casual place the whole family can enjoy in Richmond's emerging Historic Depot District.

On a road trip across Indiana, there are always lots of fast food and chain restaurant options for dinner, but my family likes to find good, local offerings and the Firehouse BBQ in Richmond is an excellent stop. It's worth getting off the highway to explore and have a good meal. The restaurant is located in the historic depot district, which boasts several galleries and a number of restaurants.

Our meal at the Firehouse was very good. We had some nice salads and a pulled pork dinner. The beer on draft was cold and refreshing. Service was extremely quick and amazingly friendly. We also really loved the murals on the walls! A great stop!

Been here twice. Once in Feb. when they hosted the Indy car from my beloved Broncos! and just recently on a half cross country trip! As a Fireman, you always try and support the Brotherhood! The other reviews are pretty close. The Food is good. Not really great, but not bad either. They only have one BBQ sauce. Its ok, not spicy, not too sweet. On my visit they ran out of the Local beer. The service is friendly but it can be slow and somewhat inattentive at times. Pricing is like lunches in my area so it seemed pretty reasonable. I say give it a try. You might like it!
