Firepits are somewhat thin on the ground in Merseyside – unless the Antony Gormley statues down on the beach in Crosby have been digging into the sands overnight – but up in Southport, they have one, and they’re certainly putting it to work. The Firepit on West Street, just around the corner from Southport train station, is a steakhouse with a superb selection of meats served on a sizzling slab of lava rock. The beef options run the gamut from fillet, sirloin and ribeye to 22oz sharing size Chateaubriand, as well as lump rump and tuna, all of which can be accompanied by chips, mash, jacket or new potatoes, as well as a huge range of sauces. There are burgers, too, and ribs, meatballs and piri-piri chicken, and fish-lovers are well catered for, as are vegetarians. Take a trip to The Firepit on West Street in the centre of Southport: just remember to gather a big group, book a table and bring your biggest appetite – you’re going to need it!
Lovely meal, service was ok but had to wait for a while and try and get the waiters attention. Will definitely be back! Thanks a lot
We had absolutely fabulous fillet steaks on the stone - we all really enjoyed the experience. Will definitely try our local Firepit in Rawtenstall. All in all a good night.
Very nice indeed, great all round experience... Fillet was perfect, fast friendly service and reasonably priced... Can't ask for more than that! Highly recommended restaurant..
Great food. Probably one of is not the nest steak i have ever had. 10oz fillet is the way to go! You will not be disappointed
Went last night for the first time and I can honestly say it was the best meal I've had! Staff were lovely and welcoming, food was amazing and restaurant is beautiful. Drinks menu is never ending so much to choose from, they also do amazing shots!! Jammy doughnuts, werthers original, popping candy and so much more. Already booked another table for next weekend! 10/10. Would definitely recommend.
A new and different experience for our friends who really enjoyed the night our third visit not disappointed Whilst finishing our meal the singer who was very good started singing but it made chatting very difficult and not having seen our friends for some time we had a lot to catch up on so we decided to move on but meal was excellent
Service was poor even though the restaurant was almost empty. Seems that waitresses can not pour wine. Main wine waiter disappeared half way through the evening and was not seen again. So no one to top up the wine or ro check on any further drinks. The steak which came on the heated stone was already partly cooked, which meant it only needed about 30 seconds of further cooking as it was preferred rare. The rib-eye which was served cooked was mediocre and the request for medium cooking was nearer to well done, what should have been a juicy steak was quite dry. There are better steak restaurants for less money.
initial contact very good staff spot on. Then left 15 minutes for drinks to arrive and not right. Food very good ,again 18 minutes, this is 5.30, on a Saturday night not busy. . My impression, after watching manager, not running at full steam. Staff seamed to lack leadership he never left front desk and did not engage with any of the customers. Not a patch on Rawtenstall, expected better, overall average will try again just incase this is a one off.
We really enjoyed our main meal however by the time the deserts were ordered the restaurant was a little busier and the staff appeared to struggle with our desert order. We waited a while to receive these and they arrived at different times and some of the order was missed off. Overall our experience was good and it's a great place for the whole family.
The food and service was good, not excellent but good. the shared steaks on a stone was really good. However the sides of potatoes and chips were quite small proportions to share and the chips I thought had been reheated not fresh. The drinks were a little on the expensive side. The rest room facilities were not as clean as could be!
