Since Dec. of 2014, new owners.....in September, a new chef, who happens to be our next-door neighbor, so we KNOW of his incredible skills. This is again our favorite restaurant!!!! They have a great variety from Fish Fry to Scallops to steaks to Beef Tournadoes, ALL have been excellent! Great quality, generous portions, reasonable prices, and ohhhh, sooooo good!

The Wedge Salad was awesome as advertised. My fiancé had the house salad which was also very good. Her veal dish on a bed of Risotto was excellent. My NY strip was thin and overdone. The service was average at best. We both ordered double Jack on the rocks. It was a glass full of ice and didn't seem like... More

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 steak was perfectly done medium... 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...
