“Pleasant Surprise!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2012

I stopped into the Firkin on a Friday evening for dinner. The place was quite busy, but the service was quite fast. I ordered the Eggplant Parmesan which was one of the specials. It was quite delicious and arrived nice and hot. I plan to come back in the future!

“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2011

I foun the food here very good and the service exceptional. I didn't order fries or anything frozen- I ha a steak an blue cheese wrap which was excellent. I'd go there again in a minute. How can anyone complain that $20 for drink and food is expensive?

“Good atmosphere and staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2011

Went there for a dinner few days ago - amazing staff and food.
Be careful when ordering starters though - they are the size of a main(which is not a bad thing - good to share between 3 ppl)

“Just average. Nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2011

If you are looking for just an average restaurant, this is an ok choice. Severs are not that experienced. Food is just ok. I only go here when the patio is open in the summer because it's in a good location. I won't go in the fall winter or spring. Just nothing special. Many of the tables have very uncomfortable stools. You sometimes have to wait a long time for a traditional table so you take the stools instead. They haven't really figured out who the are. A bar or a restaurant. Some people will sit and take up room drinking and not eating. So,it's more of a bar than a restaurant and the food, prices and service reflect that.
