Firkin has a great atmosphere, whether going for lunch, dinner, or a few drinks. Bartenders and servers are always friendly, attentive, and willing to go that little extra to ensure you have a good time. Love this place!

We ate there last night. I had the steak with pomme frites (~french fries). Steak was OK if a little on the tough side. Frites were battered, which I didn't expect. My son had the mussels. Lots were not opened so he couldn't eat them....More

Kids are definitely allowed and there are plenty of food options for them as well. Keep in mind, in later evening hours, Firkin has more of a bar atmosphere than a restaurant.
