This is our favourite eating place in Elliot Lake. On two recent visits to the city we have dined there three different times.We already feel like the staff are personal friends. You have to try the fish tacos for a special treat. Highly recommended.

This is a pleasant restaurant to take in. They have all the ambiance. But the food is not the best in what I have had there.

Good quality, consistent meals with friendly service at reasonable pricing. A step above regular roadhouse offering some high end gourmet specials on occasion. Their fundraising buffets which help to support local amateur sports are a very good choice with the teams bussing tables so you can get to know and interact with the athletes. Certainly the better dining choice in... More

Fireside is now serving breakfast from 9.00am to 3.00pm and we have been there numerous times in the past few months; twice this week alone!

We arranged a dinner celebration for a large group at the Fireside Inn and booked the private room which they offer.

The Fireside is a step up in décor from the other eating places in Elliot Lake but only amounts to about a half step up with respect to food. So buyer beware.

Recently went to the FireSide Grill and was pleasantly surprised by the lovely decor. The restaurant was busy which is always a good sign. Of the six of us, three had nachos which were a disappointment but the other three were completely happy with their meals. Service was good. I will definitely try it again.

Description
The FireSide Classic Grill is a modern hang out with great food and drinks in a great atmosphere. The FireSide Classic Grill continues a long tradition of bringing people together to enjoy great food and good times in Elliot Lake. Ed Blahey built the Algoden Hotel in 1957 and was proud to see his commitment to quality customer service and community pride continue when Andrew Young opened the FireSide Restaurant in the former Algoden. Andrew brings the same quality standards and community pride to the new FireSide Classic Grill. The menu and the look may have changed, but the FireSide still operates on the long held promise of great food and good times for everyone that loves Elliot Lake.
