“Overpriced very poor food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2011

The service was ok, but the food is not very good. The burger was flavorless and not quite done. Caesar salad ok, but came with soy bacon bits. Food is better at Rexhall place

“Served the purpose......”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2011

Served the purpose which was to secure parking prior to an event at Rexall Place. We parked in a lot and walked1/2 block to the restaurant. We arrived 2 hours before the show, thank goodness as it was staring to fill already. We sat in the bar where the service was so-so, perhaps they were short staffed as it was very busy.The carpet was filthy, the chairs had worn, crushed cushions. We had a pizza which was very good, the calamari appetizer arrived cold. This restaurant serves the purpose of being there for an "alright" dinner and beverage before the event with just a quick walk to Rexall. I forgive the atmosphere and decor in favor of convenience and would do it again:)

“Disgusting”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2011

The food is prepackaged, all they do is open bag or a can. Nothing is fresh. Fries and gravy were both disgusting. Save your money. Go hungry.

“Good food, poor service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2010

The food was excellent; tasted very, very good and well-prepared. The service was--well, horrible. They said they had just hired someone new, but that alone didn't justify how slow they were both nights that we were there (within a few days of each other). Maybe after they've trained "the new person," it'll be a better time....

“Highly recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2009

Every May, we bring a large church group of teens to Edmonton for Youth Convention at Rexall Place.

No trip to YC is complete without at least one meal at the Fireside Restaurant. It's prime location.

Fireside always seems to be packed out and it's a bit of a wait for your food. It comes hot and tastes wonderful. There is a great selection of menu items and prices are very reasonable.
The staff are efficient and friendly.

Great value !!
