Ouch. We are very sorry that this was your experience. Excellent service does not override the quality of the food - and though we appreciate the comment, we regret that the overall experience was a disappointment. Thank you for this honest review.

Perfect destination any time if the year. Warm and comforting in the winter with the beautiful fireplace. Beautiful setting in the summer for dining out on the patio. The food is always carefully prepared and delicious. A must do.

Fireside offers an unusual menu with some favorites. Must recommend the pork with polenta, absolutely incredible. Atmosphere is quaint, romantic on a winter night with candles, and the harbor setting. Wait staff excellent.

The Restaurant is located inside the Ludlow Resort. I made reservations a week prior and arrived tonight and had dinner. Service was spot on and the food was excellent! They have great atmosphere as well.
