Frequently Asked Questions
Do you accept reservations?
Unfortunately, we do not accept standard reservations. With our open seating layout, we cannot properly support it. Groups of 8 or more can usually find seating on the Green Lawn, Marfa, and the BOHO Courtyard. If you need rental space for a larger party or event, please inquire here.
• For groups of 20 or more (without a rental), a 20% gratuity charge is automatically added.
• No decorating or "taking over" any space without a paid rental. No exceptions.
Do you have table service?
No. We do not offer table service. We offer open seating and counter service. Place your order up front, enter your cell number, pick your table, and relax! If we're busy, visit the bar or Coffee Shoppe, enjoy our free wifi, and/or play one of our outdoor games while you wait. Rest assured, your food will be hot and tasty when we send a text to your phone, letting you know your food is ready!
Is the FireHouse Gastro Park good for large groups?
We are great for large groups! However, we ask that you call ahead and confirm we can support (if your group does not have a paid rental). With regards to our kitchen operations, we are like any other restaurant. Unannounced groups of 20 or more will wait longer than usual if we are busy. If you need to ensure you secure private space, visit our FHGP.SPACE website.
What is the FireHouse Gastro Park?
We're a hybrid venue featuring a coffee shoppe, restaurant, bar, outdoor live music venue, and rental space. Our home is yours. We welcome visitors from 7am to closing.
Where are you located exactly?
Right off of Main Street in Downtown Grand Prairie, right across the street from Sonic. Look for the large "FHGP" neon letters.
Where do we park?
There are three parking spaces right in front, off of Main Street. There is ample parking behind the FireHouse. Enter through the light blue gates. Look for the large blue sails and shipping containers.
Are you a scratch kitchen?
Yes! From our homemade sauces to Chef Z's Dirty Bird Fries, 95% of our food is made from scratch. With that in mind, please exercise a little patience when we are noticaly busy. We are not fast food. Our quality of food is second to none.
Do you take phone orders?
We no longer accept phone orders. We encourage our guest to order online. During peak hours, we do not take online orders in order to properly support our inhouse guests. Our apologies, but during our busy times we cannot support additional online orders.
Can we move tables, chairs, and umbrellas around?
We ask you ask an employee first. We'll be happy to assist, if we can. Furniture may be reserved or set up for other use.

There is a restroom (w/changing table) inside the Coffee Shoppe. There are four large additional, climate controlled restrooms outside in the blue shipping container, behind the bar.

How safe is your venue?
We utilize a specialized cleaning service, on top of our own cleanliness protocols. All of our seating areas are properly spaced and COVID protections set in place. We also utilize a professional cleaning service. With our outdoor seating, we're able to offer space that's open, airy, and sanitized. We often lift all four of the FireHouse garage doors = space, transformed.
Do you allow outside food or alcohol?
Unfortunately, no. We encourage guests to bring their own dessert of their choosing, if they like. We are happy to hold your dessert in our walk-in fridge.
Can I get my deposit back if we're forced to reschedule for COVID?
Absolutely. We treat every reservation individually, with compassion and understanding.
Can we decorate our space?
Of course! We definitely support our guests decorating their space as needed. As long as the decoration does not damage any property, we're happy. With that, we do ask that you coordinate with us regarding any gender reveal displays.
Can we bring in rented/outside furniture?
If you need to bring in additional tables or chairs for your event, we definitely understand and support that. Just coordinate with us ahead of time to discuss date/time of delivery and storage.
Can we bring in our own band or DJ?
It depends of the day of the week, time, and rental agreement. We do have a complete in-house sound set up and engineer. Talk with us. We're here to help plan your perfect event!
