Food drinks and service were amazing as always! Elo does a great job and always brings our drinks right over as soon as we sit down. Her dinner recommendations are always spot on! Fire us our favorite go to place. You won’t be disappointed.

After this experience, I'm not sure I'll be back. I made a reservation for 7:30. Walked in and got seated right away, but it was another 15 minutes before our server visited our table. After we made our drink order, we watched then sit (ready) at the bar for another 12ish minutes. After we ordered, it took about 35ish minutes for our food to come out. Luckily, I was with good company so it wasn't terrible waiting. The food was just ok. Nothing special and definitely not worth the extended waits. Choose wisely.

Wow what a great place to grab a bite to eat. Cozy updated interior. Large bar area. Our server was excellent and very nice. The menu has everything from salads to wood fired wings and pizzas, ribs to burgers to Italian dishes like chicken parmesan. I had a 16oz New York strip on special with mashed and asparagus for just $21!! What a great deal and it was very well prepared. My compliments to the Chef! We'll be back for sure. I highly recommend 🔥 Fire. Check it out!!

Our server was very nice, but it took about 50 min between ordering and food. Salad, 2 kids pasta and a pizza. It was very busy, but we were sitting with no food for a long time. We asked for everything to be boxed up but then they started bringing it out plates for us. It was evident that communication between staff was an issue.

We love the pizza and the wings at The Fire! Every time we dine there I always say "next time" I will order something besides pizza, because they have such a great menu, but it never fails, we ordered the pizza! It is always baked to perfection. We ordered The Sicilian, which is white with fresh sausage and caramelized onions and for the other, we chose to add spinach, ricotta and mozzarella on a white pizza. We also ordered side salads. I had a glass of Jhlor wine and my husband had a draft beer. Maybe next time I will try something other than the pizza :)

Easter buffet brunch food was cold and tasteless. Fish which was advertised as haddock was the worst tasting fish ever. Doubt that it actually was haddock. Pasta dishes were cold and gluey. Baked ham looked like a rolled lunch meat didn't even try it

I have been patronizing The Fire for a long, long time. The staff is terrific! They perform their
jobs with efficiently and personality. I always feel very comfortable at The Fire whether it is for a quick bite at the bar or dining at a table with friends. For example, my Family and I have attended the "Feast of the Seven Fishes" the last 3 Christmas Eves. It was most enjoyable.
Although the food offerings are delicious, I am looking forward to a seasonal change in the menu, especially the seafood offerings for summer Also, I am disappointed that the restaurant doesn't serve lunch at least 2 days during the week. Nonetheless, The Fire is the place to go. Consistent good food, especially the pizzas, great bar specials every afternoon, friendly staff, and pleasant surroundings.

We really enjoyed the the arugula pizza. 4 of us had salads with seafood on top. The salad and the bowls are ice cold and the seafood was warm and perfectly cooked.

Not many people in the restaurant. Seated in the back (asked for warm area) and seemed to be forgotten. Too long a wait for drinks, then dinner, and forever for the bill.

The roasted garlic and bread is amazing. The gnocchis were delicious and I know this sounds weird, but shout out to the gentleman who wrapped my dinner, because when I opened the leftovers, it was still perfectly laid out, with the dollop of ricotta still on top, which was awesome as opposed to just being dumped in. Not a big deal, but I noticed and appreciated it!!

Was very unhappy with the food on Christmas Eve. The calamari was cold,,,,,,, baked stuff shrimp very small with an overabundance of greasy stuffing, filet was raw and by the time we got it back everyone was done with their meal. I called and spoke to the manager days later and tried to explain to her the reasons no one brought it to her attention on the night of the dinner. We were the last customers left in the restaurant and it was obvious that everyone wanted to go home. We were a party of 10 and not one person was satisfied with their meal but because it was Christmas Eve no one wanted to say anything. The manager I spoke with was not understanding at all and had quite an attitude. A little more understanding for the manage would have been appreciated.

Christmas Eve dinner was excellent. The food was delicious, and our server, John, was great!
He was attentive and eager to please. John was friendly, but professional. This was our third Christmas
Eve with The Fire, and we have never been disappointed. The current staff at The Fire is a wonderful
mix of managers, servers, busboys, and bar tenders. They make everyone feel at home. I frequently stop at The Fire for a drink or dinner with friends, and I am always quite satisfied.

Ate dinner at the bar but everything was a little chaotic because the restaurant was busy and service was slower. Food was good, especially the Rigatoni Insaccatti but the slower service was more of a deciding factor in the review. Looked like they needed more help, at least for the dinner rush. Hadn’t been there in a while and probably won’t be back for a while.

It was our first time to eat at The Fire. My mom found your ad in the Valley Breeze and we wanted to make a change from regular Family Style chicken. We decided to celebrate Father's Day there and we were not disappointed. The food was delicious and we plan to return for other special occasions.

Have eaten at Fire every year since my daughter has been attending Bryant University. dinner and lunch has always been excellent; however, for this past Mother’s Day, the restaurant had a brunch. While the food selection was very good, the food was barely warm. Hope this is a one time mistake.

The food, the service and the ambiance were okay. Nothing stood up. We were sat in a tiny table along curvy wall and cramped in between two other tiny tables, whilst there were so many empty tables when we arrived and at the time we left. The staff who clears the tables was rushing us. We didn’t finish our meal and he already ask if he could clear the table. However, we couldn’t get out water glasses filled. The food was okay.

My husband and I both have celiac disease, which is entirely controlled by diet. We have been going to The Fire and enjoying the gluten free menu for quite some time, but my husband did not feel safe ordering this time. Although the waitress and chef were very careful with my order, there are plenty of restaurants where I can get an especially carefully made salad, and my husband is just too sensitive to take chances. Others in our party seemed satisfied with their dinners, so perhaps they will return but we won’t.
