Been to Firewaters 2x. Last time was on May 2 after a No Doubt concert at The Borgata. The selection was terrible. We paid a $10 cover charge and then $18 for a bottle of Southern Tier Jahva which was served too cold. The beer was subpar. My boyfriend said it was a bad batch. It definitely was. I usually enjoy Southern Tier but that stuff was awful. This place is overpriced and the selection sucks!!! Stay away!!!

Great place to have a few beers, meet people from all over and a great staff..Been going here since it opened and more reguarly since 2005...The selection is very good over 100 bottles and 51 taps and Martinis... But the Staff makes this place awesome!! Cherie, Bobby,Nancy, Chrissy,Rachael, Katie,Jackie, Teddy and Mike are great... Most places you need to grab the bartenders wrist to see of their still breathing not here!!! I have gotten to know each of them over the years and they make every time in AC GREAT!!! Give it a try!!!

Pretty cool place. Lots of beers on tap, but lots I already have access to or have already have. Definitely worth checking out if your down in AC! Especially after losing some $$ and your in need of drowning your sorrows!

The place is dingy and looks as if it was an afterthought of the casino. The beer selection is pretty good and happens to be one of the best selections in the area. I think they have food service now, but when I went you had to order from the deli next door and bring it to your table. Again, food was an afterthought.

For a bar in the basement of a Casino, this place has a pretty decent beer selection. Compared to what is around it, it is great, compared to a good beer bar, it is pretty mediocre.

As close to a "beer bar" as you will find in Atlantic City, in a little nook in the Marketplace in the Tropicana. Solid draft list of 50 beers, but nothing super out of the ordinary. Another part of the bar has martiniís, which is something you would never see outside of a casino. But like I said, much better beer list than anywhere I looked in AC.

Not quite as nice as the glen mills location but its one of the few places in AC i could easily find to grab a decent beer. Its a little dark and drab but the food is good enough to soak up the drunkeness and a few tasty beers can be had. Prices are fair and service is friendly.

Kinda odd placement for a bar with a mild fist pumping ambiance. Great selection of beer but it will cost you for sure. Bring the plastic if you want to sample here.

Iíve been to Firewaters in Atlantic City about half a dozen times in the past couple of years and it remains the staple for good brew in AC.
The interior atmosphere could use lots of improvement IMHO as could the bartenders knowledge and service level. But the selection is near excellent, making up for everything that is lacking.
Pricing is more expensive than a standard bar but not as much as you would expect from a high end beer bar in a casino. Pints range from $4 - $8 bucks fro the most part. 750ml bottles can range from $10 - 25 bucks on average. Obviously they have some selections that are more expensive but Iím just trying to illustrate that lots of offerings are there to be had in the price ranges Iíve listed.
