Good. More checking in by our server would have been better, but she was easy to flag down.

Overall not impressed the selection of sides leaves a lot to be desired. The server was not flexible and offered very few sides and the side I chose was rice and beans which were cold and had no taste. For a healthy side salad they wanted to much and the salad should have been one of the sides offered. As far as to service it
was slow to poor. Not sure I will return.

The food was good and came quickly after we ordered. The staff was friendly and accommodating and didn’t push us to get out at the end of the night. We will be back :-)

Firkin is always a good bet for a wonderful meal. This last time didn't disappoint. We had a very attentive server and the food came quick and was delicious. My husband loved the Oktoberfest beer flight.

I absolutely love Firkin! The atmosphere is quaint and the drinks are amazing. Yesterday I had the paloma and the softshell crab pasta. I love softshell crab, and it was seasoned and fried perfectly!

Please get Firkin back to where it was pre COVID. It was our favorite, go-to place. Great service, food and drinks. Firkin is where we went all the time - and took our friends and family here. Invest in an experienced staff - its now a frustrating experience and it should not be. Get back to where you were - because that was awesome.
