Came here in late afternoon and caught a couple of their food specials. We all had a burger and added some fixings at additional cost. Waitress forgot our appetizer so it came late but she took it off the bill without any complaints from us. So the service was excellent. Burger is decent and I'd definitely have it again.

WE have been here many times and have brought friends and family members. The food is usually very good and the service excellent. Our last visit, however, was a bit of a disappointment, we had the fish & chips which are generally excellent but this time were not. The order was small, greasy,and very sub-par for this establishment. We asked... More

They make an excellent Seafood Chowder.The Caesar Salad actually tastes like it should, creamy garlic, Parmesan and a healthy serving. Wings are another highlight ......and the staff are excellent.

They are attached to a brew pub that makes some very interesting and very good beers. The staff were very friendly and quick. The problem is that the burgers and fries were average at best. The portion size is fine but the patties were pre-formed and had a veggie burger texture. The fries were barely warm enough. Since the meals... More

The Hubby likes to go here for ribs and beer. Reasonable price for chicken, ribs, burgers and pub style food. The beer brewery is in the basement. They sell local brews, wine and your standard selections. They have special prices at certain times such as 2 for 1 appetizers. They do hold special events with bands on occasions.

Friends invited us to meet them there for dinner. We knew there were new owners, so we were anxious to support them . Surely it would be an improvement over previous visits. Unfortunately it wasn't. We were a party of four and there were only 3 other patrons in the restaurant. The menu was predictable and unexceptional. Drink orders were... More

Food was good. Was not busy but service could be better. Maybe they where having an off day. I will come again.

I would recommend Firehall brewery and pub to anyone who's passing by Oliver. The food is really good and their nachos are to die for. The service is fast and the venue has a modern look. I never had a disappointing experience here.

Stopped in for lunch over Thanksgiving weekend. The place was packed and understaffed. Our waitress did her best; but she was covering a LOT of tables. She also thanked us for our patience which softened the annoyance of being kept waiting. Food was OK; nothing special.

We stopped at the Bistro for lunch. They have ample off-street parking in the upper and lower parking lots. Inside it is very dark, with small halogen/LED lights hanging from the ceiling. This made reading the menu extremely difficult, especially areas that were red on black. Service was prompt and the waitress very pleasant. I had the burger special and... More
