$80 before tip, worst seafood I've ever had. Everything needed salt.seafood was under cooked. Very dry. Manager, Doug was very rude, hung up on the phone, uncooperative. Unprofessional.

But a number of factors – such as proximity to near my motel and my burning desire for a slab of good beef – prompted me to toss caution to the wind and venture inside. From the first moment I entered,... More

If you want to sit down for a glass of wine or cocktail, drop in. Its a pretty place to sit. If you want dinner you will be disappointed.

The steak showed up and was the thickness of a McDonald's hamburger patty and it was... More

While traveling through the Adirondack's we decided to stop in Lake Placid for dinner. As we pulled into town we noticed the glass enclosed dining area in front of the Fireside Steakhouse. Since we like the view we decided to stop there. The whole experience could not have been better, the food was excellent and the service was just as... 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

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
