This used to be a good place to go for a nice quiet meal. Regular American food menu. Miss it. Do not like restaurant that is there now.

All of my dining experiences here have been very pleasing. I love the "Tuscan Greens, Salmon Salads, forgetting not to mention their take-out. Oh my goodness, the pasta, salads bread,spaghetti, veggies take-out saved the day for our last family get together. Everyone enjoyed the food and I was out of the kitchen!

The fireside inn closed at the end of the year and has just reopened as The Yelling Goat. Hope to try it soon as we always liked the Fireside Inn.

This restaurant is around the corner from my office, and I am in HR, so I often take interview candidates there. I have never had a bad meal; their food is consistently good in flavor & quality. I would highly recommend their Pasta Fagioli, Lobster bisque, and Salmon Salad...

The food has always been good here. My biggest problem with the Fireside is how SLOW it is. Plan on over an hour for lunch and a full 90 minutes for dinner. If you have the time then check it out.

This place is near my home and we like to eat here on weekends for a nice, yet casual and affordable dinner. The Reuben's are MONSTEROUS and delicious. The lobster bisque soup is also awesome. All food is good quality.

My hubby and I went to the Fireside Inn for the first time last night. I wonder why we haven't gone there before? Our waitress, Sara was very helpful, and nice. She suggested what we should try, since it was our first visit. We started our meal with an appetizer. It was the Hot Pepper Dip with Pita Wedges. This... More

We went last Saturday, tried the prime rib dinners. Both were cold, had to be sent back. Could barely cut it with a steak knife, it was so gristly and tough. Baked potato had seen fresher days...homemade salad dressing tasted like watered down Ranch. Food was just horrible! They should not serve this dish!
