“Firebox takes their farm-to-table philosophy seriously. They work with a large number of local farms and food producers, shaping their menu around what is available seasonally and grown locally. Add to that the expert skills and fruitful imagination of Chef Ed Jones, and the results are delightful small plates bursting with flavors. The restaurant is warm and inviting with exposed brick walls and original beams on the ceiling. Their policy of working with local talent extends to the local artists who have the opportunity to show their art on the restaurant’s walls. Firebox’s brunch has received rave reviews, and you will see why after you try their eggs Benedict. ”

“Vegetarians, beware: Bear’s Smokehouse is an unapologetic carnivores’ heaven. The meat is delicately smoked in hickory and other fragrant woods, rubbed to perfection, and barbecued until it is charred on the outside and pink on the inside and falls off the bone. Chef Jamie “The Bear” McDonald has perfected his own sauces and rubs, and he chooses everything from the wood to the meat cuts very carefully. You can find all kinds of meat on the menu, from briskets, beef, pork, chicken, turkey, and sausages, along with a whole range of sides. The ambiance fits the feast – the restaurant is located in a converted garage and has a counter service and a sink.”
