    One of the best dinners we've had out in a while! The special was a buffalo ribeye (wonderful!), and we also ordered the roasted chicken over bacon Mac & Cheese (also wonderful!). Try the shrimp app!

    The pulled pork is to DIE for! Ribs and the pear salad are also favorites. Mack was a fantastic server. On my "best of" list for Philly.

    Great atmosphere and service! Chicken breast w/ bacon mac n cheese in mushroom sauce is awesome...ask for their cookies at the end - chocolate chip pecan - so good!

    Brunch is spot on -- the Firehouse Steak Benedict is 10/10. Also, NEVER turn down their pecan chocolate chip cookies for dessert. They're life-changing.

    Little pricey, but the food and atmosphere are worth it! They give you a decent portion, the menu has great dishes, and they even give little chocolate chip cookies when you pay! Love it!

    The complimentary buttermilk biscuits to start, the warm chocolate chip cookies to finish, and the heavy-on-the-horseradish Bloody Marys is what makes brunch here memorable. Read more

    Only worth it if you wanna eat out and go to the penitentiary; nice package available. Limited menu, horrid decor, and I'm pretty sure the water was from the tap. Um, 4 outta 10.

    Host desk straight back to the right of the bar, somebody will seat you. Try the buttercake, it's so good.

    Look classier than it should be, but the prices are very reasonable. Catfish sandwich was dry though.

    Be wary when ordering drinks at the bar and paying cash. Prices don't include tax, but they tend to round up to the nearest 50 cents, resulting in an automatic tip. Sheisty to say the least.

    There IS a host stand that usually has someone behind it. Look to the right near the back of the bar when you first come in.

    I know from a good source this place doesn't serve fresh bread. If a customer doesn't eat it they serve it to the next person
