The restaurant was clean and about 1/3 full at 10:30am. Our food was fresh and we had a lot of it. Almost too much since none... More

My family and I eat breakfast here at least twice a month. We have tried other places and keep coming back. Out of town family also enjoy this better than anything they have. The food is great, fills you up all day and the people looking after you are always pleasant and helpful. We will keep coming here!

The Fireside has a good selection of food to order. Although not a Greek restaurant the owners are Greek and the food is delicious. We've been twice now and between us had everything from burgers to gyros, pork and chicken souvlaki. Really good food, great service and reasonable prices. We'll be going back.

I went there with a family member. I was really happy when I found out the served breakfast/brunch until 2 pm. Their portion was so big too. I loved their home fries and their eggs. I left very satisfied. I would definitely recommend to people who like going out for breakfast.

Thank Jen S
