Some time ago, we were in the area, so decided to stop in at Firkin for a dinner. We weren't sure what to expect, but it wasn't what we expected, in a good way. First off, it's a long narrow bar that is crammed full of furniture, knick-knacks, and decorations that obviously change according to season or celebration. An open kitchen is tucked away in the back, with a bar taking pride of place, front and center.
Huge assortment of unusual beers (plenty of local choices, hurray), so easy to pair with a very eclectic menu that is always changing. Check out artisanal cheese and sausage offerings, warm and cold appetizers, burgers (grass-fed beef, yahoo!) and sandwiches, or go big with an entrée. Make sure to take a look at the Specials available, super creative and definitely tasty sounding, always. If by chance you're not full up after the large dinner portions, take a gander at the dessert menu, lots of options there as well.
Kids aren't left out (though there's no kids' menu) with basics like mac and cheese available, as well as a fun assortment of sodas that go well beyond cola and root beer.
You might come for the beer experience, but it's worth a trip for the food as well. Family-friendly, reasonably priced, and incredibly tasty, you'll be planning a return trip as you sit there.
