Jack's Firehouse

Map
2130 Fairmount Ave., Philadelphia, PA 19130, United States

Located in the Fairmount neighborhood of the Art Museum District, this former 19th-century firehouse serves dressed-up, country-style food. Chef-owner Jack McDavid is known for old-fashioned dishes due to the success of his original Philadelphia eatery, the Down Home Diner. Entrees at Jack's Firehouse, such as the pecan-crusted catfish with a pecan pesto, and the spiced pork chop with stewed apples exemplify this rural haute approach. The menu has a lighter salad section as well, with an emphasis on regional produce. Hints of the building's former life remain, such as a fireman’s pole and massive front doors that are left open in warm weather. Complimentary chocolate chip cookies arrive with the check.
