Im happy to report the Fireside is still cooking great food. My wife had the Pork Tenderloin with a tasty chutney and mashed potatoes I had the Fettuccini with Shrimp both excellent. We recommend the moose so so good!

Hayward is so lucky to have this restaurant. The chef is top notch and you would think you were eating a meal prepared in Chicago or NewYork. The atmosphere is that of a supper club. We try to eat there as many nights as possible on our trip to Hayward. The staff is also very attentive. I knew the original... More

Ordered soup of the day and several appetizers. Waitress was rude and didn't know how or when to fire the food. We sat waiting for over 1/2 hour for bread while all the other tables were waited on attentively. Soup should have been brought immediately. Or waitress should have asked about when to bring items. She ignored our table and... More

We enjoyed excellent food. Nice variety of entrees and great service. Well worth the price. Atmosphere has a northwoods appeal you would expect to find in this area.. We will return again.

Treated so rudely at the door that we did not stay for dinner. I have travelled all over the world. I tip above the average, I am patient. But the rudeness at the door was unacceptable.

This is magnificent dining to be sure and to find it in the small town of Hayward is a joy. My husband and I shared the fabulous pork shanks and the steak medallions. Masterfully prepared and beautifully presented. Every year after the Birkebeiner ski race in Hayward we come to celebrate here with a group of friends and we leave... More

Erica and her husband Chuck do a spectacular job. The is truly one of the only higher end dining opportunities. Not that the other restaurants in town are bad but sometimes a person doesn't want deep fried cheese curds or deep fried fish. The price is up there for the north woods but it was worth it. We will come... More

This was magnificent. I went with a couple of dear friends who had raved about this place and I was totally impressed. It is owned by a beautiful couple from the Chicagoland area (I also) who decided to leave the traffic and hassle of the big city and open a perfect dining spot in the woods of northern Wisconsin.

Found this place on TripAdvisor and based on the menu decided to make this our supper club choice when visiting Hayward. We had a delicious dinner and even tried the pike cheeks as an appetizer. Enjoyed the tiered relish tray as well. The old fashioneds were on point and we imbibed quite a few after dinner at the bar. The... More

Had our 26 year anniversary dinner last night. Food was outstanding! The steak was perfect, could cut w a butter knife! It melted in my mouth. Snapper was awesome! The seasoning was SO good! Old Fashions are the best, love this relaxing little gem! Will go back anytime we can! Kudos to our hosts Chuck & Ericka!
