A Rich History in the Local Food Industry
In 2015, The Firehouse Tap and Grille was started by a partnership between three brothers, RJ, Sean, and Casey Miller and Dave Stone, Phil Rice, and Noah Peterson. Dave Stone and his wife Thea had owned and operated Mickeys Central Fire Station in downtown Meadville for 20 years. They teamed up with the Miller brothers to upgrade the menu, décor, and overall atmosphere to what is now The Firehouse Tap & Grille.
Serving BBQ from our in-house commercial smoker, alongside Chef Dan Miller's signature burgers and salads, we have a very unique and tasty menu. Front of the house manager Sean Miller has put together a great wine menu along with his signature drinks to pair with all of our new food! He and his all-star service staff are ready to give you the dining experience you deserve!
A Brief History of Our Building:
Founded in 1914, the Meadville Central Fire Station was constructed to store all of the city's motor driven apparatus in one place. Over the next 85 years, 9 fire chiefs and numerous fire fighters worked out of the station, pioneering many ideas to make their jobs faster and safer. When the company relocated in 1999 to a modern facility across the street, it was converted into a bar and restaurant, yet still has many features from its prior life. Be sure to check out all the antiques and fire fighter memorabilia on display when you stop in!
