Wanted to try their prime rib buffet. They were out of prime rib. The surroundings were dark and depressing and the carpet was filthy. We left and went to Austin's in Liibertyville.

We sat at the bar for 43 min. We timed it! When we got up to leave the manager asked us how was everything, when we told him we had just sat at the bar for that long he told us we were mistaken.

I had only been to Firewood once for their Sunday buffet. Nothing particularly to write home about. I wasn't surprised to hear that the restaurant had closed.

Had my baby shower here. Service and food were great! The bar was a perfect place for the men to hang out during the shower. I would definitely recommend Firewood for a casual lunch or dinner or a banquet or party.

The atmosphere seemed a little cold to my liking, our waiter only came over to us when we went out of our way to get their attention.
