Good experience overall, but uneven.

Fireside has changed hands several times since I first ate there years ago. I believe it was even closed down for a while in between owners. It seems like no one has been able to find a "theme" or special ambiance to make the dining experience there really memorable. The food is always good; the... read more

We got there a late Wednesday night. Salad was "standard". Rest of the party seemed to enjoy their meal. The NY strip was excellent.

Good food, kinda pricey. 90 minutes to get Friday fish fry. Two hours thirty minutes from enter to exit with reservations. Probably won't be back.

First time here since ownership change. Dined on a Thursday evening. Nice atmosphere, but not as cozy as was in 80's. I decided on the twin tournedos. Husband chose the scallops on a rice mixture bed. House rolls were VG as were our mixed greens salads. Minor glitch here, though. My husband needed more dressing as with most places, why... More

I was traveling with a friend through Dunkirk where I was born...and we had a hard time finding good places to eat. However, Fireside Manor was AMAZING, we had to share a plate because we were on the road to go back home to Florida and it was still a very large meal. We ordered the Prime rib...and I still...

My husband and I have traveled a lot, and eaten at a lot of great restaurants....we've dined at the Fireside (right in our own backyard!) many times over the years, and it is always a good experience! It has changed hands a few times over the years, always good, but the newest ownership and management is doing a wonderful job... More

I visited with my boyfriend for his birthday. I had heard great things about Rich and they were met!! I had a great waiter who made my visit worth while. He was kind and took good care of us. We ordered steaks and both were cooked to perfection! It was a pleasant experience! We will be back!

Regrettably I am unable to give a good review for my two visits to the Fireside and am shocked because I thought I knew who the chef was, and he is great. However, my first visit I ordered chicken Marsala and it was very disappointing and not anywhere close to chicken Marsala. The second time I took three other people... More
