    We were there to celebrate our son's 45th birthday and this is where he suggested we go. He and his wife are a youngish couple, but we also really enjoyed the atmosphere and food. The food was different for us, but we welcomed the delicious variety on the menu.

    Okay so my oldest son said he had a really good wing place he ooohed anf ahhhed all through dinner and claimed these were the BEST wings ha has ever tasted. My middle son said he did not really like wings. Too much work to get a little meat. I told him he really had to try these as they are really big. We had a family platter and had some leftovers. Guess who wanted to take them home. They have 2 for 1 on Wed but it is so good I never wait til then. Love the Firehall!!

    They have one of the best burgers I've tasted even without the frills, and the prices are very reasonable. I guess it's a popular dive in the neighborhood - it was packed and all the tables had either families or couples. It wasn't too raucous or loud, even with all the big TVs running two different sports events at the same time! We enjoyed it!

    We were there with a group of 14 ladies for lunch. Our waitress worked so hard, and took very good care of us. Sometimes when you are with a large group the service is not very good. Our waitress was excellent, and had a good attitude despite it all.

    The service was great, our waiter recommended certain dishes because we had not been before. The portions were large and everyone was happy. The house specialty curry was not an authentic Indian curry as described but some vegetables and or chicken in what seemed a pre-made curry sauce. The vegetables or the chicken has not been cooked in the sauce (the veg had been pre-steamed and the chicken was presumably grilled and sauce mixed in so there was no depth to the flavour of the curry. From a timing point of view it may be worth while waiting until you have eaten your appetisers before ordering your mains, we hadn't even got half way through our wings before the main course arrived which was a total food overload. Everything else was great.

    If you are looking for amazing wings Fire Hall is the place to get them (I order mine lightly sauced/ extra crispy), you can also order fries (yes gravy is available ) and onion rings on the side but its not noted on the menu. Their appetizers are great and so is the menu selection (my favorite is the 5 layer dip) . They also have tv's throughout the bar and dining room if you are looking to watch a special sporting event. During the summer season the outdoor patio is open to serve your hunger and thirst pains.

    I've been to the Fire Hall a half dozen times now and it's always good. Best of all I can bring my picky friends with me and not only can they find several options to eat on the menu, but it's always good. And these are some very picky friends I have! Everyone always leaves satisfied and happy. They have a great patio in the summer that is actually divided into smoking and non-smoking. This is the next best thing to having smoking banned everywhere. Keep up the good work!

  • Hands Down - Best Wings Ever
    WingMan
    Dined on 1/19/2014
    I've been going the Fire Hall for the past 8 years. They have by far, hands down, the best wings I have ever had. They are consistently delicious. I prefer the normal dusted wing, with lots of medium sauce. I prefer a thicker sauce, and the Fire Hall delivers. They have very large wings and they server the same wings on their wing night - some restaurants cheap out and serve a lower quality wing on their wing night - but not the Fire Hall. For the best wings around, look no further than the Fire Hall.

    Met friends over Christmas at the recommendation of other friends. We live in the Stoney Creek area and our friends in Miss. so it was a great mid-way meeting place. Great Vibe. All ages were at this place. The service was good, but they were really rushed off their feet. When they did come often forgot condiments etc., but we understood because of the amount of people they were trying to keep up with. My husband and I ordered the wings and they were awesome. We are wing freaks...so when we heard about this place had to try it. You can get them breaded or saucy..."stupid hot" or mild. I wanted "stupid hot" but my husband wasn't game. Fries were awesome too. Would be a great spot in the summer. Right by the Lakeshore.

    My first, and most likely last, visit to the Firehall was not a great one. Upon arrival, it was very busy, but we had booked earlier in the day, so our table was waiting which was great. The staff were very friendly and efficient, but unfortunately the food was not great. We ordered the 5 layer dip as an appetizer, which was bland and runny. Both my friend and I ordered the chicken fingers with fries. The fries were ok, but the chicken fingers were the bland, standard issue, frozen variety. Even the buffalo butter sauce was a disappointment, as it tasted like regular Frank's hot sauce to me. I hear they're famous for their wings, which in retrospect, we probably should have ordered.

    I had a great meal - some of the best wings I've had in a while, but my wife had a burger that we both thought was very poorly cooked. It was cooked throughout, but it still seemed under cooked and had a bad taste to it. The restaurant overall was good. Seemed like a happening bar, but that burger just left a bad taste in our mouth, literally. Again though, the wings were some of the best I've had in ages - roasted (non-breaded) butter flavour.

    My husband and I tried this place for the first time a couple of nights ago with a couple who had been there regularly. This is a really good neighbourhood place to go on say a Friday night. The food was reasonably good (wings were tasty / meaty but somewhat fatty, salad was good, wine/beer offering good), the service was quite good and the atmosphere was very good for a relaxed place to hang out or a place to go with kids. We'll definitely go back again - really good for a relaxed place to go for dinner.
