The waitress Haley was very friendly and attentive. The dinning room was nice, and the fireplace made the atmosphere charming. We started with calamari which wasn't bad. It seems fresh but the flavor wasn't outstanding. The entrees were a burguer and primavera pasta. The burguer was bland and... read more

The restaurant is nice, Haley the waitress helpful and very friendly. The meat bad, the owners attitude horrible. We complained about the quality of the meat and she didn't bother to come to our table as a good maitre would have done. The restaurant closes at 830 on a Sat evening. We arrived at 7 and we were not informed... More

We went to the Fireside early as we tickets for a ice skating show at the Olympic Arena. We were offered our choice of seating and had a wonderful meal.

It seemed like the place to be on this rainy Lake Placid night. The restaurant was crowded but the friendly staff still found a table for us. The food portions are big and our waiter (a young sports guy) was very friendly and told us about his sporting career. For sure great food and good service!

My GF and I were staying the weekend at Lake Placid. This is our third visit in three years. We have our special places and one of them is the Fireside Steak House. This was our second visit and the reason we went back was obvious to us. We liked the atmosphere and the food. At 7:00 in the evening... More

Went on the weekend and great deal for the price, steak was done perfectly and thick, chicken breast was a little small, but great old-school atmosphere and friendly service, recommended!

Following a recommendation on Tripadvisor we walked down to this retaurant. We had not booked and if you want to sit in the enclosed patio,I guess you should book. Attentive staff and good steaks and beer.The dining room behind the 'patio' is a little souless.

Outside of Nonna Finas in Saranac Lake, Fir Side Steak and Seafood, is by far my favorite place to eat a good warm meal in LP. We have been here several times and every time the food is fantastic, the service is fun and light hearted, the cost is reasonable and the warm atmosphere can warm your core after a... More

Food and wait staff was good, place is a little smaller on the inside. We liked sitting on the enclosed patio

Burger was good, wife's salad was way more than she could eat. Server was a very nice young lady. Servers were very busy, but it was a Friday night.
