“Dinner in an old firehouse”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

Don't miss out on good food and drinks at the Columbia Firehouse. It is just off of King Street and has the most interesting wood work over the bar. The food is good. I had the tile fish and it was cooked perfectly and very tasty. I will be back soon.

“Wonderful Ambience”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

The restaurant is actually in an old firehouse, which provides a really interesting setting. I was there for lunch so didn't have a cocktail, but the drink menu looked unique! My turkey sandwich had the most amazing havarti cheese! I also got the strawberry rhubarb crisp for dessert, which was somewhat disappointing. It was more like strawberry rhubarb soup with graham cracker crumbs. It tasted alright, but wasn't the most appetizing. Overall, my lunch was good, the price was reasonable and the server was nice. I would definitely go back (and just make a different dessert choice)!

“Great setting, food not so hot”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

The ambiance was fantastic in beautiful Alexandria. The service was good, but the kitchen staff must have had an off night. Entrees were overcooked, soup was cold, etc. and nothing about our meal was noteworthy. Frankly I expect more (as a Midwesterner not used to paying East Coast prices.)

“Always a good choice”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

I have had a number of lunches and dinners at the Columbia Firehouse and am never disappointed. Menu choices from seafood, comfort food, and appetizers are varied and well prepared. Beer and wine options offer lots of choices. Prices are moderate and service attentive. It can be really crowded on the weekends but waiting in the bar area is comfortable. Just off King's street in Old Town so the location is very convenient.

“Good food, great service, brimming with ambiance”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Food was tasty, though portions were huge. The service was excellent, which isn't uncommon in the States. What stood out the most for us was the atmosphere - we didn't want or need to leave.

Stayed in Alexandria for 3 days, and this was hands-down the best overall dinner experience.
