I have lived in Chicago for 80 years and thought I had eaten everywhere. How I missed the Fireside I do not know. I hope to make up for it because I finally found the quintessential Chicago neighborhood bar and restaurant. Huge, fresh salads with...More

Lovely ambiance and food. The bruschetta was especially good. Also enjoyed blackened shrimp salad (they changed the fish for us), a chopped salad, and smoked cornish hen (a special).
