It would be nice if the menu would indicate how spicy the dish is

We had a great anniversary dinner here. Our server had great drink suggestions that paired well with our burgers. Covid guidelines were followed and the place was not full. It was a very nice evening!

We went to Firkin for a birthday celebration because Tavern is temporarily closed. We were able to order from a limited Tavern menu and the food was delicious.

Food was ok. Not as good as I’ve had before the Pandemic. Had the special; a pasta dish with shrimp & Boursin stuffed peppers. Dish was under seasoned. Not worth $24. Should have had the tacos which I love. Our waiter was wonderful. Very fun & attentive. Would go back as I’ve usually had a great time. Must have been an off night.

The restaurant is really cool. I’m not sure the tables were socially distanced which made my wife a little uncomfortable. Our waiter was very nice, and did a great job, but the food wasn’t as good as we were hoping. Our appetizer was fine but both of our sandwiches were quite dry.

Overall we were satisfied with our visit and will return but we will most likes stick with the great beer/liquor selection and the appetizers.

We enjoyed the food, service, and atmosphere at Firkins on Tuesday evening. The shrimp tacos on soft shell and goat cheese salad were delicious. The lentil paste was delicious as always. It was nice when the bread and lentil paste were complimentary. I suggest cutting the price to 2.50 or provide a larger container of the paste (2.5X the size).

Seemed like they were very understaffed for a Saturday night. Our waitress was kind and as attentive as she was able, but service was very slow because she seemed to be handling half of the restaurant herself. Food and drinks were good, but not amazing.

Drinks were ordered and served then waiter literally did not come back. Cleaning tables was evidently more important to him than taking our meal order.

Stopped manager to find out how much our drinks were and to let him know why we were leaving.

Will not go back.
