1/2 price appetizer night

Recently reopened they have a 1/2 off appetizer night on Monday's. All I am going to say is the appetizers were absolutely phenomenal. You have 7 to choose from and they are not your normal appetizers. Presentation was great. Drinks were good size and reasonably priced as were the appetizers. We... read more

This place just reopened with new owner, new interior and fantastic chef. BETTER THAN EVER!! All five of us were very impressed with our dinners. Actually the waitress brought me something I didn't order (mistake) but it was killer good (veal parmigiana). Steaks were incredibly well done. The only complaint: bar tender makes noticeably skimpy pours compared to the White... More

I just heard that the fireside has gone out of business. I walked by there today but there was no signage saying they are closed but there was noone around either. Last night at around 8:30, 2/21/14, we drove by and the place and it was empty and there were no vehicles. Robin had really done a nice job with... More

This restaurant has been a staple in the Dunkirk area for many years. They're been several owners. The current owner is doing an excellent job. The remodeled interior looks very chic. The food quality, prep and offerings are consistently good. We've had only a few disappointments which do not overshadow the excellent experience. I would recommend this

Previous owners were known for fussing over birthdays and remembering this, my spouse called here for a reservation, telling them we were celebrating a birthday.When we arrived, there was only one other family dining and the waitress said to sit anywhere. No mention was ever made of a birthday.The lighting is pretty bright and the flooring is some kind of... More

The food was very good. We had a party of 7 for dinner and ordered Scallops, lobster bisque, crab cakes, chicken Florentine and parmesan which were all excellent. The staff had good character and was friendly. Atmosphere was pleasant warm lighting and a cozy gas fireplace. We take our food very seriously and consider cooking to be a hobby and... More

My Mom wanted to go out for a steak dinner but didnt want to drive far. So it was decided to come here, an old favorite. When we arrived, it was freezing in the dining room ( we were the only patrons), but staff noticed this and turned up the heat for us. We started with french onion soup.... it... More

My husband and I eat at the Fireside regularly and I've never had a bad meal here. I love the way the new owners brightened up the place with the new decor. It really is the best restaurant in Dunkirk.

We really enjoyed our meal at the Fireside Manor. Don't let the picture on this site scare you. We almost passed by this stop. We had a very nice meal. The portions are generous. We enjoyed some local wine and the dessert was sinful. I would highly recommend this stop.
