The Fireside offers a great dining experience with top class service and high quality food with fine views onto the water. The décor is very nice and adds to the relaxing atmosphere and charm of the building. We did not think it overpriced for the quality of food and service we received but yes, you will pay more than you... More

Stopped by for lunch. Enjoyed a great view of the harbor (we were given very special seating when they discovered it was my wife's birthday) and great food. The service was exceptional! A must visit if you are in the area.

Order the house smoked steelhead. It is delicious...more delicious than the best lox I have ever tasted and it is locally caught. Had the steelhead lox scramble served with a small dollop of goat cheese...nice touch.

Thanks for this note about the Lox - we love that we can make this fresh and that you enjoyed it so much! We agree, it is pretty tasty and goes so well with our local eggs and hand-crafted Goat Cheese. Hope to see you again soon! More

The Fireside Restaurant is pricey considering the location and for what it is (it is Port Ludlow, after all), but the food is very good and the atmosphere is perfect for a low key meal or drinks. The staff was friendly and attentive during our visit. Your trip to the Fireside should be done as a daytrip however; staying at... More

I asked my friends the Driscolls in Nordland to recommend a good restaurant for me to treat them; they'd let me stay at their beautiful home, and Ginger's birthday was coming soon.

Overall it seems like this place caters to rich and stuck up people that act better than everyone else. The meal we had was really good, but the menu was small and tries to be too fancy. The price was better than we expected though. The people that were there all seemed snobby and gave us looks since we were... More

The staff was very attentive and welcoming. Our meals were wonderful. I had a Caesar salad and small plate meal of scallops that were delicious. My husband had the halibut with rice dinner. Nice evening looking out at the bay.

We went to happy hour and possibly dinner. We initially agreed to a lovely spot on the deck overlooking the water. There was no shaded area available, so before we ordered we asked to be seated inside. It was 5:00 and the restaurant was EMPTY. The hostess came back after a lengthy delay to tell us they had only 1... More
