My husband and I shared an anniversary meal at The Fireside restaurant. The food was prepared to perfection. The staff was very personal and attentive without being intrusive. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

You pretty well summed up our full intention with these four lines! Memorable food, quiet service, build loyalty. Thank you! Hope to see you again very soon.

The Fireside restaurant in the resort was wonderful. We ate lunch, dinner, and brunch here over the weekend, and all were amazing. The pizza and Cuban sandwich made for an amazing lunch. The cheese plate at dinner was only so-so, but the entrees were delicious....More

yes - we change our menu every day - and have many options that work very well for vegans (as well as other special considerations.) Since we work directly with local farms, this is an especially "easy" request.....

Description
The Fireside Restaurant is located within the Inn at Port Ludlow. The Dining Room is open from 7am to closing every day of the week. Chef Dan Ratigan prepares locally sourced menus and works closely with the local farms, artisans and fisheries to create a Daily Dinner Menu. We are open for Happy Hour EVERY DAY from 4-6pm featuring tapas style food options and daily beverage specials. The wine list is award winning - most recently with the 2017 Wine Spectator Best of Award. Holidays and special events are featured throughout the year including winemaker dinners, cooking classes and other "foodie" events. Seasonally, guests enjoy the Veranda overlooking Port Ludlow Marina and the Olympic Mountains. Guests can stay over and enjoy a "farm package" where they visit three local farms, bring the basket back and Chef will prepare a meal from the ingredients provided.Private parties are invited to enjoy the private rooms as well. Reservations are recommended.
