As a native New Yorker, I returned to the City from Asia to celebrate my 60th birthday with old friends. My visit started by meeting a friend at the Firehouse. I instantly became hooked. The staff is super friendly and treated me like a regular. The service and atmoshere is great, and drink prices reasonable. I came back several times... More

The decorations could have been better. The websight makes it sound like your at a real firehouse, not the case. I went there in the afternoon for lunch and apparently hey didn't have steak for the burrito. After ordering having my appetizers and still waiting I was then informed about the steak. A bit disappointed. But when I ordered the... More

Very large beer menu and all the games were on the many large screen tv's. Seeing all the people eating and enjoying the food, we agreed to come another time to get... More

Great sports bar and a great atmosphere. This is a fun neighborhood bar that had every game on during the initial weekend. The food was very good and the bartender and wait staff excellent. The owner is a big /Syracuse fan but that makes the place even better. Will be back on my next trip.

They say their specialty is wings. I had them and they are ok. I guess, being from Buffalo, my expectations were a bit too unrealistic. Their burgers, however, are much more worthy of bragging rights. Being catty corner from Jackson Hole, which is famous for their burgers, isn't the easiest way of offering an item people would actually go out... More

We had a drink with my friends. The menu doesn't show the price of the beers. When you ask it, the response is not corresponding to the check, which is increase. THE BEER IS MIXED WITH WATER!!! NEVER TASTE A BEER LIKE THAT BEFORE!!!

Firehouse tavern is a classic American sports bar in the Upper West Side. If you're looking for a nice place to watch the game with your buddies Firehouse is a great option. They have a nice variety of bar food such as ribs, wings and burritos. The wings are a great option to combine with a refreshing cocktail or go... More

Despite the cold weather, our group decided to take a chance on the outdoor seating to enjoy the fresh air outside. Luckily, our server was still attentive and made sure we got all our orders in a timely fashion. I ordered the ribs, which ended up being a messy but DELICIOUS choice on my part. It is true there is... More

We went to the Firehouse recommended by a friend. We arrived and we could feel that sports atmosphere which is amazing! The hostess on duty gave us a pleasant greeting and seated us right away. Our server was prompt, knowledgeable on the menu items we had questions about, and was very attentive and pleasant throughout our meal. I personally had... More

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
