Description: Fireside Pizza Co. is the brainchild of long time friends Ray Villaman and Ted Kennedy. Ray is a 20 year restaurant veteran including - California Pizza Kitchen, Boston Market, the California Restaurant Association and even a short time as President of Blimpies. Ray also had a ton of help from his Father in Law Rich who remains to this day a vital part of the restaurant management team. You may see the big, smiling fella working with the dough in the back or out front with the guests.Other help came from Mark Wheeler, Scott Kennedy and of course Ray's lovely wife Chris and their two sons Jacob and Nicholas. We hope that you enjoy this family creation - combined with some great investors and friends - all wrapped together to bring you the Fireside Pizza Company.We've won a ton of awards for our fresh, unique pizza - but the best award is still when you tell us or your friends that you had an excellent experience here - thanks so much.Sincerely,Fireside Pizza

We ate here twice during our stay. 1st time was for pizza. It was really good. Other was pre WS100 carb loading - pasta! It was also very good. My husband ordered a salad (take out) one day for lunch. He really loved the dressing! Service was great! No complaints here!

we heard the place was good, we had ok pizza and ok salad which were overpriced for the quality. There were many people there so I don't think they will try hard to be excellent. I watched the busboy clean off a table when the people stepped away from the table for a few minutes... probably better communication would help.... More

Stopped in here as we were staying in a nearby condo. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the pizza and salads at very reasonable prices for a resort restaurant. And my small salad could have been a meal in itself. We enjoyed sitting outside on the patio, and found the service to be very attentive, friendly and quick.... More

Had a good Italian dinner. We started with the fireside garlic chips which was a meal in itself. It was like the pizza dough with garlic so we hardly made a dent in it. Then had a small margharita pizza and the spaghetti bolognese. Everything was tasty. It was nice sitting outside.

I found the staff to be preoccupied with socializing among themselves. It felt like the service provided to customers was a secondary consideration and not a priority. A comment regarding a shortcoming in the food was brushed off. I will not return due to my negative experience.

Had the Thai Curry and it was wonderful. Actually a little bit sweet. We had a group of 11 and it took awhile for all the food to make it to our tables but everyone really enjoyed their meals. Would definitely go back.

This place is always busy, crawling with families and people are generally happy. The pizza is average, but the spirit is good.

Good pizza and great salads with the option to eat outside in the summer. Our favorite is the pear and gorgonzola salad. They do great things with mushrooms, and try anything that says "fire-roasted"!
