Erica and her husband Chuck do a spectacular job. The is truly one of the only higher end dining opportunities.

This was magnificent. I went with a couple of dear friends who had raved about this place and I was totally impressed. It is owned by a beautiful couple from the Chicagoland area (I also) who decided to leave the traffic and hassle of the big city and open a perfect dining spot in the woods of northern Wisconsin.

Found this place on TripAdvisor and based on the menu decided to make this our supper club choice when visiting Hayward. We had a delicious dinner and even tried the pike cheeks as an appetizer. Enjoyed the tiered relish tray as well. The old fashioneds were on point and we imbibed quite a few after dinner at the bar. The... More

Had our 26 year anniversary dinner last night. Food was outstanding! The steak was perfect, could cut w a butter knife! It melted in my mouth. Snapper was awesome! The seasoning was SO good! Old Fashions are the best, love this relaxing little gem! Will go back anytime we can! Kudos to our hosts Chuck & Ericka!

We celebrated our anniversary at the Fireside and had a very nice meal. They have the old fashion relish tray and is quite cozy.

We had our 40th anniversary dinning in this beautifully decorated Northwoods Beach Restaurant. We started with the Sautèed Foie Gras. It was heaven in Wisconsin! Perfect for sharing and presented with poached Anjou pears and creamed leeks. My wife had one of the specials of the night, the Red Snapper served with smoked salmon. Very beautiful dish. I ordered Beef... More

I've dined at The Fireside many times as well as other fine dining around the world. I've never had better Foie Gras anywhere! It is the best. I've enjoyed the scallops, steak, shrimp, snapper, any special they offer. You can tell the talent, desire and love for what they do. Always a smile, classy but personable service. A MUST STOP...

Legit late sixties early seventies Wisconsin supper club. The decor is retro cabin country. I wonder how many Chicago gangsters organized hits from here.

We came in to the Fireside later on a Sunday night as many diners were leaving, and were warmly greeted by Chuck and Erica. We had dinner at the bar and what an amazing dinner! We started with a lovely relish tray (a Northwoods must) and then a delicious tomato soup with hints of Parmesan and fresh herbs. Also had... More
