My boyfriend is a fireman so we were immediately drawn to this restaurant. It's a beautifully restored 1800's firehouse! We had our 1 year old son with us & at first I wasn't sure if it was family friendly. However, the hostess was so nice and made us feel so comfortable! We were seated right away- everything from our drinks... More

The visit was suggested by family members who had been there before. I thought the food was okay but way too little for the price being charged. Didn't see anything on that menu that was fantastic. Service was very good though to help save the night!

loved the atmosphere and food here! interesting menu! We were not waited on quickly but we were in no big hurry. I think there may have been some confusion on who was taking care of us.

This is in a converted firehouse. There are two separate areas. We ate in the long narrow area to the left after you come in. Dark and cozy. It was nice and quiet as requested as we wanted away from the bar. The food was good as well as the service

Brunch, lunch, dinner, or special ocassion you can't go wrong at Columbia Firehouse. They have so many delicious options including their beef strogonoff, fried chicken special, crab cakes, and any steak on the menu. They also have an excellent cocktail list and wonderful desserts (chocolate snickers tart. Yum). My husband and I really enjoy the food, service, and also love... More

Went here for dinner with friends. Had the mussels to start. They were delicious, but even better, the dish came with a small loaf of sourdough bread to sop up the sauce. A real treat. Had the 50/50 burger for the main course. It is half bacon and half beef, and it did not disappoint. The combination of the beef,... More

We had a few drinks here after dinner elsewhere in Old Town. We loved the atmosphere - lots of dark colors, soft lights, great beer menu, friendly folks. Should do dinner here soon too :-)!

Met up with a date for a drink. We also ordered the oysters, hummus and cheese dip. The appetizers were all tasty. Service was good. We sat at the bar. The place was really interesting with multiple dining areas. Prices were a bit high, but everything else was good.

Went at noon on a Saturday for lunch. However we found the available breakfast items on the brunch menu more appealing then the lunch choices. We were very happy with our decisions on Bacon Cinnamon buns and omelets. The atmosphere is great especially in the bar area with the huge wood bar and stained glass in the ceiling.

Thank Allegany
