We came to The Fireside Tavern and Grill for Father's Day since my kids had deserted me for in-laws. Oh, well, sometimes you do have to share. The Fireside Tavern and Grill is more like a neighborhood bar that serves good food. Since it was...More

Lovely ambiance and food. The bruschetta was especially good. Also enjoyed blackened shrimp salad (they changed the fish for us), a chopped salad, and smoked cornish hen (a special).

This place has a nice neighborhood bar and grill feel to it. I ordered the Cajun meatloaf, and was disappointed. Rather than arriving in slices, the meat was just piled on the plate. Rather than having a traditional BBQ type coating, a cold pile of...More

Every year our family chooses a restaurant to go to on Christmas Eve. Since we all have very different food likes, we often choose a place that gives variety. The Fireside was our choice this year and we were not disappointed. We were seated next...More

Before I say anything else, I say this...GENEROUS PORTIONS!! We ordered the crab cake, coconut shrimp, calamari, blackened shrimp salad with extra avocado and sweet potato tater tots (we asked for a side order of this--HUGE). So we made dinner from 3 appetizers, tater tots...More
