My wife and I absolutely loved Firehouse when we first visited last year. The menu was very thoughtful, with marvelous creative and well-executed entrees like Venison and scallops that you could not find anywhere else in the area. We were sorry to hear they closed for renovations, but were excited to dine there earlier this week now that they had reopened and unfortunately very disappointed. On the positive side, the renovation included some updates to the front of the place including a more visible sign, so it's easier to find. The interior remains unchanged and the wine list was still OK for the area and reasonably priced. The positive changes were not extended to the menu however. The eclectic cuisine was replaced with generic steak and seafood type-fare. Whereas at least 50% of the menu used to be items that you would not find elsewhere, now it was just like any other steak/seafood place. Our entrees were OK, and there did not seem to be the care in preparation or flavors that made this place one of our favorites in the past. To top it all off, I got quite sick the next day. Sadly, I don't think we'll be back which is a real shame since this was our hands-down favorite in the area. If you want something a little different, I'd head up the road a bit to the Passion8 bistro, which seems to have picked up where the old firehouse left off.
Pros: Updated exterior and decent service
Cons: Uninspiring food that made me sick the next day
