We got off the ferry in Bremerton and were in route to Port Angeles, WA. We stopped at a rest area and while there, we asked for a place to get a quick bite. The hostess at the rest stop recommended we go a few mile our of our way and go to the Fireside, so we did. As we... More

We have been here many times. For breakfast , lunch and dinners, and the meals have all been awesome. It's a real quiet setting, they have a very nice view also.

Took a Friday afternoon trip to check out this restaurant. First impression was good, it was a sunny day out but chilly and the warmth from the fireplace was just right- along with the view out on to the harbor. Our waitress was very nice and made a few suggestion of her favorite foods that were listed on the menu.... More

We have eaten here several times today being the most recent. I have also stopped by after a round of golf even though it is a ways from the course. I had forgotten how the service can vary and always seems a bit disorganized at the start. Once things settle down though it is a pleasant place for a meal.... More

My Sept. review was somewhat negative of our dining experience. Chef Dan invited us for a return visit and the service and food was excellent. We will be returning!

Food was very good, atmosphere needs updating and cleaning up for these prices. It is expensive to the point of expecting much higher level than it is... Also, the servers shouldn't come talk about "hotel" business behind the bar, very unprofessional.

Let's face it, there are not a lot of great restaurants around this area... plenty of good restaurants, but few great ones. This one is great. The setting is wonderful, right on the water. Many of the tables are window seats, but even the rest seem to have a view of the windows. The staff hustles and smiles a lot.... More

We arrived w/o a reservation. The hostess said she couldn't take us. We offered to sit at the bar or on the deck. The deck was the best part of the evening, watching the boats and the evening shadows. The waitress brought my husband his IPA... we ordered... At LEAST 1/2 hour later, our main courses arrived...

The local folks enjoy this restaurant in addition to all of the visitors. The setting is lovely right next to the Port Ludlow Marina, often with Olympic Mountain views, and outstanding food and service. A delightful place to relax.
