Every time I've been to this place the service is terrible and the bartenders have no social skill what so ever. There are much better places to go where the bartenders actually notice their patrons and serve them in a timely fashion. Being in the industry, I'm a patient person when it comes to waiting for a drink, but I finally had to draw the line after waiting 15 minutes for 2 cheap Bud Lights and witnessed several others post up next to me and get served before me. I'm only writing about this now b/c this is the 3rd time this has happened. DO NOT GO HERE. THEY SUCK!!!!!

Pros: good beer selection, good prices

Cons: terrible service, understaffed,

This place used to be cool because there were some cool bartenders and pretty decent food. Now all the good bartenders are gone and the food is gross. Too bad.

Pros: cheap drink and food specials

Cons: gets packed on tuesday and fridays (if you want to avoid the crowd)

We went to the Fire Station for dinner and drinks after our convention sessions were over for the day. We did a little sightseeing and as the sun was going down were ready for some margueritas and some dinner. Monte Vista Fire Station has a great location, a great atmosphere, fantastic margueritas, and great food! This is a place to come back to!

This bar is a really good time on tuesdays. However, the bar is about the size of somebody's bedroom. This bar is upstairs so you will frequently wait in line for a long time because they are over firecode up there. The service is good but they are always understaffed and the bar is way to small for the amount of people that are there. It could take you a long time to get drinks and once you get up there you might as well order a bunch cause you wont be getting back to the bar for a while. It gets really crowded, especially on tuesdays. Crowded like a houseparty in high school and college... like you cant move easily at all. Patio is really nice in the summer, but again crowded. Havent tried the food so i can't comment on it. Music is average. Mostly classic rock. I'd say give this bar a try but dont expect anything special.

Monte Vista is a great hang out all around. The patio is great in the summer time! If you like sweet drinks the rum runners are a must!

go there on tuesday night and meet your friends. after 10 pm beer is only two dollar a big cup, goes well with the chicken winigs, two bucks will get you twenty of them. ask for the spicy sauce, it will make you feel like talking a lot.
the patio is nice with a big fireplace, in the winter it might be a little cold, but don't worry, there will be fire, that is why it is called fire station. all the college kids hang out there on tuesday, go have a look.
it is bad that there is no place for dancing

PROS: price
CONS: no dance

I don't understand most of these ratings, granted many places aren't perfect, Monte Vista isn't either. Monte Vista is a great place to relax, have drinks, and have a bite to eat. Almost everytime I'm there, it's a great time. Almost. Tuesdays draw in a crowd that resembles the line up from COPS, but other than that, great. I gave it 9's because there is always room for improvement.
