I've lived in Texas so I can be picky about beef, however, the steak that I ordered was excellent! I usually skip dessert but the warm apple pie was delicious. Nice atmosphere.

Had Saturday brunch with family. I got the waffles with blue berries. It was tasty and light. Chicken and waffles were good according to son in law. No one left disappointed.

Not talented enough to accurately describe how awesome the inside décor of this place is so checkout tall the photos on goggle maps and see for yourself... very popular so large crowds and noisy on the weekend but good service given all that...

The Firehouse is a good place to meet for casual drinks or a first-class dinner. The dark wood at the bar and in the dining room brings to mind a classic neighborhood pub that invites you to stay for good food, drinks and conversation. A good wine and beer menu along with traditional mixed drinks set the stage at a... More

Columbia Firehouse is conveniently located in Old Town Alexandria in a nice old building and is nicely decorated inside. My wife & I had eaten there a couple of months ago, and enjoyed it so much we suggested it for dinner with another couple recently. The waiters were pleasant and efficient, and once again the food was very good and... More

We went here with another couple. The server asked how we chose it (as a frequent TA reviewer I'm surprised more restaurants don't ask this) and my friend said she picked it from Yelp. I happened to mention that I review a lot on TA and he said - oh, we'll have to be extra good then. I was a... More

Food quality is good but $20 for a fried chicken dinner and $26 for a small filet of wolf fish were a bit much.

It would be easy to miss the Columbia Firehouse on St Asaph, but it is worth seeking out...... less than a blocck off Kings St across from the Hotel Monaco and a rear gem unique menu items along with more traditional favorites terrific service, terrific atmosphere and decor

Columbia Firehouse not only has excellent food and atmosphere, but it also has an amazing event space perfect for a wedding and/or reception! On the day of our wedding the second floor "Chop House" was set up in rows of chairs. Then, everyone migrated to the third floor, "Wine Room" for delicious hor devors and cocktails while the staff transformed... More

We found this gem by accident, wandering around Old Town looking for a place for brunch with cocktails. Initially we weren't totally sure it was a restaurant. It was adorable. We were able to sit outside in the garden, which was absolutely lovely on a warm fall afternoon. My mimosa was the perfect opening. A friend got the special Bellini... More
