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

food was excellent

delicious pizza! We got the Fireside pizza and a chicken cobb salad, everything was wonderful. The portions were huge too, we ended up taking most of the pizza home with us since the salad was huge and we ate most of that. Highly recommend.

Food was great and the manager and staff were so nice to my little boy. I have an 18month old and they all waved to him and helped keep him entertained. The Pizza and salad is great and staff is wonderful. We will definitely be back.

Only downside is that they do not take reservations. Great California cuisines and good atmosphere. Recommend it for families

It's the same menu and food as Northstar village and at the Heavenly base village. Decent pizza, good apps, lots of beer and fair prices. Great for families. It was busy when we arrived, but we were seated promptly. We had wings, fries, garlic bread (thanks to Y__p checkin) and a couple of pies.

Skiing and cold weather fires up the appetite, and nothing satisfies the whole family as well as really good pizza and beer on tap. Fireside is a go-to spot for us now, and it capped two great days for us on the mountain. I recommend!

We had dinner twice at Fireside Pizza and both times the food was excellent! We ordered a small pear and gorgonzola salad and a medium fireside special pizza on our first visit. The portions are generous, enough for two to share. Our next visit we ordered a small easer salad and a medium classic margherita, again it was enough for... More

Fireside has great pizza and salad. I strongly suggest the Thai pizza. It is very different style, but very yummy. They also have root beer from a barrel which is tasty. Service is good and the atmosphere is laid back

Lunchtime visit with starter of Gorgonzola and Pear salad, small size $7 is large by Australian standards. Medium pizza also ample for 2 to share. Large size pizza for a group or if you want to star on the "I weigh 600lb series" on TLC.
