Last night as my husband and I were trying to enjoy a nice quiet evening out for dinner at The Fireside Restaurant in Lake Placid, a party of four was seated near us. Even before sitting in their seats, one of the young children began carrying on and disturbing our nice night out. The obnoxious behavior shown by the child... More

We thought this looked like a nice place, so we gave it a try. We were joined by our grandsons, 2 and 5. They even had crayons and paper for coloring, so all looked good. Once seated, our 2-year-old grandson had a crying spell that lasted about 2 minutes. He was hungry and we were buttering him some bread when... More

Brought our company there for our last meal before they left for home. We love the food, perfect steaks, excellent homemade bread, just a terrific meal all around....BUT this time was different! The bread was entirely not the kind they have ever served, although good, the prime rib was very meager, the hamburgers some had were not done enough, good... More

The food was good, fair priced and they have parking. Other main street restaurants are hard to get to, so this is a good choice if you have the car with you. The wait staff was attentive and hepful. Will eat there again.

We stumbled on to this restaurant on our first day at Lake placid. Cosy atmosphere reminiscent of days gone by. Our server was new but cheerful and attentive. Salad plain, bread warm and plentiful, my prime rib was very good but the scallop swam in butter and i left the rest after a bite. My companions' Alfredo pasta was very... More

The place looked great, there were 3 people in it at 5:30 in the afternoon. The waitress was pleasant, although had a difficult time with English. We ordered appetizers and drinks for a party of 3. So far, so good. We ordered our entrees: pasta with butter for our daughter, the Fireside Sirloin, and the Broiled Fisherman's Platter. We were... More

My wife and I have dined in this restaurant a few times over the past 20 years when we visited Lake Placid. On Saturday nights there was always a line up, great food and wonderful service but something has drastically changed. We were in town for a half marathon this past weekend and decided to hit our favorite restaurant in... More

The best part of this restaurant was the martinis which were as good as I have ever had. Nine family members dining and only two enjoyed the quality of their meals. Our waitress started off well but after taking our drink orders she never returned for about a half hour. When she did she took our main orders and never... More

Shame on you, you had appetizers two martinis and a bud lite before dinner, how was your waitress MIA?? Your party was in and out in 1 1/2 hours and it was a complimentary birthday party, all that left LOVED everything and thanked everyone on the way out. The prime rib was the best they ever had-totally confused here? More
