2009-11-13 14:09:25 I met up with some people last night after work. They did a very good job renovating the place. The food was pretty good with alright portions. I had the backdraft chicken, which had good heat without being overpowering. I tried their house beer, 22 Amber. I'm no beer critic, but it tasted pretty good to me.
The only thing is the dining area gets a little noisier than one would expect. Not that big of a deal to me, some people might get turned off by it though. But on the other hand, a dining room in a working firehouse is far from quiet. It just adds to the firehouse feel. —JohnJoseph
2010-01-17 09:53:54 Beware - this restaurant takes reservations but does not honor them. Once you arrive your are wait-listed, Management is not customer friendly. Can't handle groups over 6. Food is decent if a little over priced. Wait staff is generally good. Renovations are great-worth a visit. Would not recommend going on a Friday or Saturday. —KimBrown
2010-01-19 18:22:06 My fiancee and I went a week ago for their Firefighter's appreciation night (they have $1 off house wine, Corona, and Blue/Blue Light for firefighters with ID and their entire families) and had a pretty good time. The renovated decor is really amazing. If you're into the history of Rochester/Charlotte or firefighting Hose 22 is worth checking out just for that. The bar and dining room are more or less open to one another so it does get a bit noisy. This is not a place to come for a quiet night out with your significant other, but the noise level definitely adds to the firehouse feel, as the others have noted here. Another drawback is that since it's pretty much one big room it gets really cold in the winter. They still have the original radiators. If you get cold easily bring a sweater—I don't get cold easily and I needed one.
As for the food, I couldn't even tell you what I had because it was that forgettable, but it won't stop me from going back there at least once more to look for something else; they had a lot of items on the menu that sounded good. On the other hand, my fiancee had the ribs and he enjoyed them immensely. —MeganHartman
2010-03-08 08:22:10 Short version: DEF worth a visit. Make a reservation, have the ribs or any dish with the blackened chicken, and expect it to be noisey. We're going back even before the upstairs or front fire doors are open! —URalum
2010-04-12 14:12:01 We returned on Friday, and the place was even louder. The center tables are in a cloud of noise, so the booths around the edge are better. One of the best (fried) calamari aps we've ever had. Pretty good fish fry, though a little pricey. The BBQ pizza was awesome. —URalum
2010-04-16 16:14:10 Food is nothing to write home about. I did get the roasted veggie panini and it was very good. The fried pickles were overly salty to the point that I couldn't eat them. The decor is very nice. The place is very loud, more like a happy hour crowd all the time. —BelPenda41
2011-01-29 17:08:55 My husband and I ate here today for the first time. We were extremely pleased. First off, the building is beautiful. It was very well restored. I love the ambiance. Secondly, the food was outstanding. My husband had a burger and I had the Probie Hogie, which is basically a cheesesteak with banana peppers. It is one of the best steak sandwiches I've ever had. The fries were also awesome; they had some kind of cheese and garlic on them. I got the sweet potato fries, which were surprisingly crispy for sweet potato. Our waiter, Kevin, was great. He gave us a little inside tip on some off the menu items we plan on trying next time around. I highly recommend checking this place out. —JenHL
2011-04-13 21:10:00 We had a small gathering today for lunch at this place and it was really great, they were able to accommodate us, we enjoyed the authentic renovations, haley our server was sweet and attentive, we were able to wander around and see the other areas of the restaurant and a girl upstairs was kind enough to give us a tour and answer questions. We really had a great experience, the food was good, and fair priced, we will go back again may plan a party there in the future given the great space upstairs! —brendacarol1
