Bored with the same old dining out destinations you've been going to for years? Hungering for a new fabulous food experience?
Each week, New Baltimore-Chesterfield Township Patch and readers will pick a great restaurant either in town or nearby that has cuisine considered supreme.
Here's this week's choice:
The Fire House Pub
Overview: One of Chesterfield's neighborhood bars, The Fire House is more than a shot and a beer place. Quality food and a fun atmosphere make it a sound dining option.
Drinks: All of the usual beers are on tap with a couple specialties as well. A full bar is available. Nightly drink specials are very much beer-centric with $2 specials every night of the week.
Appetizers: Upscale take on bar bites. Shrimp rockefeller ($8.99) is a decadent combination of shrimp, bacon and garlic baked in a bread bowl and covered in a homemade cream sauce and Parmesan cheese. Fire House Cheesy Bread ($5.99) takes Fire House pizza dough covered in garlic and other seasonings topped with lots of mozzarella cheese.
Soup: The homemade chili can be ordered straight up or in a crock topped with raw onions and a layer of crusty, melted cheese. Add a few pickled jalapenos and you have a spicy, hearty crock of comfort.
Salads: For those on a health kick, try one of the salads. The Hawaiian chicken salad ($7.99) has grilled chicken, pineapple, almond and sesame seeds with a lemon-lime vinaigrette. Most salads include chicken and are meal-sized.
Sandwiches: Plenty of choices for the meat-inside-the-bread crowd. From the usual burgers and clubs to the unusual rib sandwich and mouflatta, there's something for just about anyone (except vegetarians—all sandwiches have meat).
Pizza: Round or square pies are offered. Normal toppings are available for your choosing. The Fire House Special (small $9.99) has pepperoni, tomato, bacon and Parmesan cheese.
Signature Dish: Famous Fire House Ribs. Full slab $15.99, which includes starch and soup or salad.
Address: 48925 Gratiot
