Nice meal but woud be pricy for a family dinner. Trendy foods as opposed to home-style..More of a night spot it seems..

We had a team dinner at the Fireside for Kapow Field Hockey Klub during the NITs. They were very accommodating - party was about 30 people. Food was good- your basic meat and potatoes kinda place - American Fare. I had the prime rib and my wife had a burger. The staff was great.

I can't understand why this restaurant is so highly recommended. The service was good, our waiter, Jordan, was especially fun and attentive, but the food was bland. We asked Jordan what Fireside is known for and he said their tomato soup. Really? Just soup? He then recommend the prime rib saying it had a good spice rub; mine was very... More

Stopped for drinks after dinner. The bartenders were attentive and the draft beer list was excellent. Drinks a little pricey for Strasburg, but worth it for the selection.

Took the wife to Lancaster County for the weekend and stayed at the Historic Strasburg Inn next door to the restaurant. Made reservations for dinner, which was a good thing because they were very busy. The hostess seated us right away. The interior and feel of the place is very nice, a little fancy but comfortable. They have a fireplace... More

The room was lovely and the service was good. The food was at best mediocre. For these prices the filet should not be tough and a step down from what you would buy at Acme. The potatoes were not hot but the salad was excellent. Okay food, but double the price it should have been.

Live within a few miles of this place and my family always has this at the top of our dining list. It is a place that you cannot go wrong with..from their amazing Tomato Bisque(A MUST!) to their cheese fries and their black & blue prime rib. I have never been disappointed!
