The Fireside offers a unique menu for this area-high end food that would likely be considered expensive when compared to most other local restaurants. Don't come here if you are looking for a burger and fries. The restaurant offers a relatively small selection of entrees but each time we eat here we find the food well prepared and tasty. The...

Upon high recommendations from friends we decided to check it out. The menu immediately offers a wider variety of choices than most others typical in the area. For appetizers we asked what was most requested so went with the deep fried avocado with crab meet and the escargot. Both were very good. We really did not want something deep fried... More

We are in Hayward for the week, and were advised to check out Fireside. We headed over with our group of 15--4 couples and 7 kids. We would have loved to eat here, however as we walked in we were met by a woman at the bar who immediately made it clear that we were not welcome, by stating "oh...this... More

I've eaten at "Fireside" perhaps 5 times in the last three years..and at no time did it live up to the "hype" that precedes it.. The food selections, in my experience, have varied from quite good to almost inedible, but they ARE a good example of style over substance. If one is impressed by a beautifully presented but mediocre, vastly... More

We found the Fireside a few years ago and keep going back every year. If you want the experience of a traditional Wisconsin supper club with both old favorites and sophisticated diverse menu items, you should not miss this Northwoods destination. Who would think of being able to get foie gras as an appetizer in the middle of the woods.... More

If you are looking for the best meal in Haywood, make The Fireside Inn a priority stop. A warm, welcoming cozy interior has a fully stocked bar. I recommend getting a seat in the large dining room where there is a full length window that opens into a view of the forest. Chef Chuck Warshawsky offers an amazingly diverse menu... More

Who would have expected such a meal deep in the woods! My wife and I were visiting friends. We asked where is the best place to eat and immediately they said The Fireside. Boy, they were not kidding. Chef Chuck presented wonderful, creative and interesting food. I will come back just to see what he comes up with next. Also,... More

My fiance and I went to the Fireside for Valentines day. The crowd is typically an older one. The place has a warmer feel, like an old time supper club. The meal was OUTSTANDING. She had sirloin, and it was the best I had ever had. Could cut it with a fork. Overall everything was great.

I called to make reservations and they asked for my number so I gave it to them. My boyfriend and I were late getting there and they had given our table away. What was the point of asking for my number if they couldn't call me? There was no bartender in the bar area when we has walked in. No... More
