The food is excellent and well prepared. The meat selections are outstanding and the sides offered are delicious. The wait staff is friendly and attentive. The establishment is clean and offers enclosed porch seating where you can watch the golfers at their game. The interior room is a post and beam with lovely fireplace. I would have rated a five,...

My husband and I visited Fireside for the first time on Saturday August 6th. The food was wonderful and our server June was a delight. I enjoyed being able to chat with her and her cheery disposition. Our glasses were filled promptly and our meals were exactly as ordered. The only detail making it 4 stars instead of 5 was... More

If you plan to have a conversation with your meal, avoid this restaurant. Service was ok and the food was actually pretty good when they got the order straight, but if there are more than one or two people in the restaurant, you won't be able to hear them; the acoustics are that bad.

We were referred to this restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised at how large this restaurant is. When we arrived, they were on a 45-minute wait so it must be a very popular restaurant with the locals. We had a very good waiter who was very attentive to us. The salads were delicious. I had a filet and my husband... More

I went here with my husband, our three sons and another 11 year old boy on our way to drop off at Colby College for basketball camp. We loved the mild wings and the clam chowder was delish. Not sure it was homemade though. I had a great reuben while my two others in our party enjoyed the steak sandwich... More

We were impressed from the moment we walked in; from the attentive staff to the inviting atmosphere. The hostess, Lilly, was very friendly, even engaging with children who were waiting for their table. Our steaks were cooking perfectly, the sides were delicious, and the rolls were out of this world. Our waitress, Sarah, approached us with a smile and made... More

We are a slightly upscale Steakhouse that also serves a nice variety of Seafood as well as Baby Back Ribs. Our Vegetarian selection is sure to please the most delicate of pallets.
