Visited Firebox for lunch after touring the Mark Twain house. Nice decor of exposed brick and wood. Seated in a comfortable booth. Simple lunch menu consisting of apps, soups, salads and entrees featuring local ingredients. Hubby had the burger while I had a fresh gemelli...More

Prior to my most recent experience at Firebox, I had only gone a couple of times for drinks and thought they were great. The bartender made me a couple on the fly after telling her what I like to drink. I've always heard great things...More

I've been to Firebox twice in the past month, and give it a solid 4 stars. The menu is very interesting but limited. Price is somewhat expensive. Some menu items are standard fare (i.e., chicken) but with "gourmet" sides and "toppings." Sometimes a little too...More
