We had a reservation and was glad when we saw the number of people waiting to get a table. Nice atmosphere and very good service. I had the Cajun catfish, single serving. Was a nice sized portion plenty enough. Spicy and very tasty. Appetizer was crab stuffed mushrooms. Again very tasty... read more

We ate here on the recommendation of our innkeeper, and were glad we did. I'm not normally a big fan of shepherd's pie but it came highly recommended so I gave it a try, and boy was it good. They use tenderloin in their recipe, so it was more like beef bourgignon topped with crazy good mashed potatoes. They offer... More

We went to the Fireside Tavern last evening. We were seated in a dining room adjacent to the bar right under a TV. When my wife asked a manager why the TV was on, she was told that was the kind of restaurant David and Steve's was. We were presented with our menus and drink list which we spent a... More

We took my college room mate and her husband to dinner at the Fireside because we knew it would be wonderful and it was. Service was efficient and our waitress was personable. I had the crab cakes because they are so good, with no filler. My husband likes their oysters. Our friends ordered 2 of the specials and were very... More

Our family always makes an effort to eat at this restaurant every visit to Strasburg. The salads are great but most acclaimed is the tomato soup topped with cheese. Just the best. I had the prime rib on the last visit and it was perfectly prepared. One family member had the whole rack of ribs.. they were tender and moist..fall... More

We love the Fireside Tavern. Every summer when we go to the Sight and Sound Theater we have dinner at the Tavern. We have friends that go with us and they love it too. Great atmosphere and wonderful food. A must to stop in and eat. t

Dined this past weekend and had wonderful service at the bar and restaurant. My husband tried the special drink called the lightsaber for StarWars and loved it! Very cozy place and very crowded, so make a reservation!

An absolute beautiful place! From the outside of the building to being all decked out for Christmas on the inside! It was just gorgeous! My family and I all ordered something different. I ordered the black bean wrap, delicious! The fireside sauce is yummy! My mom got the Cuban wrap which she loved! My dad and sister ordered the prime... More
