We spent a wonderful evening at Firehouse. The menu was broken down into "Alarms". "1st Alarm" was appetizers moving all the way to "5Alarm" which were your entrees. The menu has a nice variety...really something for everyone. Barbara, our server, was appropriately attentive, clearly loved...More

Fun environment in former firehouse. Decorated in "firefighting decor". We had salads. Very good and large portions. Service was very good. Good value. Street parking (metered).

Went here with 20 friends for dinner. They were very nice. Everyone seemed to enjoy their food although my Prime Rib was more rare than the medium I asked for. But I think the size of our group was too much for them as they...More

GREAT food - a bit pricey, but so well worth it to celebrate special occasions. Atmosphere and ways building was preserved to resemble original use was well done.

Set in an authentic firehouse which operated for over 100 years, this restaurant has a great selection of appetizers, soups, salads, burgers or main entrees. Also has a fine selection of alcoholic beverages. Our waitress was very pleasant and kind - offering suggestions on the...More

There are too many other options to settle for this one. I think the prices are too high and the food is mediocre.

We are planning a family get-together in a couple of months. There will be adults and children from PA, MD, MA and VA. I'm searching for a place with a private room to accommodate us for about 3 hours on a Saturday afternoon.. The menu looks good - something for everybody. Is Firehouse a good choice?

I would think this to be a good choice. The staff seemed very accommodating on our last visit, which might help with your family.
What do they have for dessert? Is there seating on the first floor?
