“A solid B”
Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

Everything was good. The scallops were actually really good. But our chowder was luke warm and the waitress (who was actual really nice) microwaved it - twice - before finally bringing a fresh bowl out. Felt a little greasy-stomach afterwards.

“The Best Chowder in Florence”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

We ate dinner at the Firehouse on Monday July 29th. Service was great.The clam chowder with the crab and shrimp was the very best we had ever eaten. I had the scallops with garlic fries and they were great. I had a small bowl of regular chowder before my meal and it was also great. We had enjoyed Mo's chowder, but we will be going to the Firehouse for chowder from now on. The Firehouse won the trophy for the best chowder and has it displayed at their front door.
The fire department patchs and t-shirts make a great decor. When you go, see if you can find the fire department shirts from Iraq and Afganistan. We will go back for the chowder and take a t-shirt from our son in laws department here in Texas.

“Great rueben sandwich and sweet potato fries”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

We were looking for a place to have a late lunch having coming from the sand dunes. Went to old historic Florence and saw this restaurant. It was run to see all the shirts on the walls from different fire department from around this country. The Rueben sandwich and sweet potato fries were delicious. I ordered a cup of the deluxe clam chowder. It was delicious. You could actually taste the crab and shrimp.

“Close at 8, so becareful when ordering.”
Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

We got there at 7:45pm ordered and then immediately got our tab. We were not rushed in anyway to leave, but wish they would have told us that they close at 8 on a Thursday night. We may have had a better time then.
