Very nice restaurant located in the old firehouse. The food was very tasty. The day we went was a Tuesday evening. Very few people, but service was good and good menu choice. Some of the items on the menu were a little pricey, but the...More

We ate dinner at the old Fire Station and it was very good! Lots of good tasting food! Good service! Great atmosphere in this 1904 building! I would definitely recommend and return to this restaurant!

The food is very good. We had had a party of five. Ordered burgers, pizza, shepards pie, salads, and brick oven pizza. All the food was good. Atmosphere was okay, a little over the top on the firehouse/law enforcement/post-911 theme. We chose this place because...More

I visited with a group of 7, mid afternoon on a Tuesday. The burgers and sweet potatoes fries were excellent. It's worth a stop just to check out the decor and memorabilia. Be sure to use the bathroom upstairs so you can see the restoration...More

Diner food with an interesting menu. Large portions. Great Philly Steak & Cheese. Surprisingly wide gluten free options. Good American style with a bit too much salt. Wonderful firehouse memorabilia. If you are in Barre, it is worth at least one visit.
