Was here this past spring when passing through, and enjoyed it enough to consider hitting it on the way back through. Decent food, good service, very kid friendly without being kid-focused, and solid tap selection.
cool restored firehouse thatís now a burger joint with craft beer. food was great. not a ton of taps, but all were focused on local beers. flights available. service was excellent. of the places i visited in richmond, this was definitely my favorite.
Parked on the street, but they might have had parking on the side of the building; regardless parking may be challenging. Went on a Wednesday night which is trivia night and may get busy right around 8pm and later. Trendy old firehouse which is loud. Service was average. Selection was pretty good, found a nice draft. Beer prices are a little above average. I had the bbq burger and side salad which was above average. I would probably go back.
First stop on a Friday morning place ticking throughout Richmond with Travlr. Pretty calm and empty before noon. Think thereís a dedicated parking lot but I went with free street parking on one of the side streets.
Nice atmosphere, small bar and a decent amount of dining tables inside. Patio outside too. Mostly friendly and attentive service.
Decent selection with about a dozen taps to choose from and an okay bottle/can list. Flights of 4 or 6 available. Food was tasty, ordered the fire burger medium rare with sweet potato tots. Came out about medium with fries instead of tots, fries were well fried and perfectly salted so no big deal to me though. Average prices.
I probably wouldnít go out of my way to come here just for the beer but itís a nice stop for a meal and some local beers.

Great space. The converted firehouse feels bright and spacious. Semi hip, but certainly inclusive vibes. I visited at 4pm on a Sunday and found the place to mostly be occupied by families with kids. The 20ish taps almost exclusively showcased Virginian breweries. Quality offerings from the likes of Strangeways, Lickinghole Creek, and Devils Backbone featured. The foodís recommended. My fried green beans had great texture, the burger toppings were tasty and creative. Prices were decent. Overall, a good hangout.
Not a massive beer list but an interesting one featuring several local breweries. All were of good quality. My nachos were good and the service excellent. My favourite of the 3 bars I visited in this town.
Definitely my second favorite burger bar in the city. Solid selection of brews and burgers - though, imho, what they really shine at is their side dishes. Great sweet potato tots, awesome deviled eggs, fried green beans, the list goes on. The atmosphere is what really makes this place though. Its a fire station for crying out loud! I love going in the warmer months because they roll up the huge front doors and the whole place is open air. AND they grow their own hops above your head if you choose to eat out on the patio. Really dig this joint.
My current favorite place in Richmond. We drive the 45 minutes down there just to eat and drink here. Food is simple but excellent. Beer selection ainít huge, but always interesting and constantly rotating. Service has slacked off a bit recently, but hopefully that can turn around. The building is nice (old firehouse). They often have the big garage-style doors open. The place only seems to get really crowded and loud at night, but otherwise itís easy to get in. Nice little patio with hops growing right out front. They do a lot of special beer events.
Located in an old firehouse, this place maintains a lot of the original decor, which is cool. The place was pretty empty for Sunday brunch. Service was spotty and times but was generally very good. Parking was easy on the street, and while inside I saw a sign for more parking somewhere. The food was excellent... pork chops covered in sausage grave with a waffle. Awesome. Beer list is solid with lots of local offerings. I had a Devils Backbone/Heavy Seas Black Summit. Prices were a bit high on beer, but decent on the food. I was a bit annoyed they had a beer on the menu that wasnít yet available. Overall... Iíd definitely stop by again.
Swung by after getting off early one day. Casual but nice- has a kind of neighborhood and maybe hipster vibe. Place was quiet at 4 on a Tuesday so service was very efficient. Pretty good selection of locals. Burger was good. They have a big selection of burgers, too, with a focus on local sourcing- and they manage to keep the pricing reasonable. Nice little patio.
