“Tasty Food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

I ordered the Wild Georgia Shrimp and Grits. It is delicious! I'm not sure what kind of decor they are going for. But, the decor will not deter me from returning.

“Good food and friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

In July the family and I went to eat lunch at Fireside. The menu is somewhat limited, however what they serve is very good. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and offered to make my mother a special drink not on the menu. We will be going there again.

“LATE BREAKFAST”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

We settled here after not being able to get in to Cafe Frederica. We found plenty of room here after seeing Cafe Frederica packed in like sardines. We had a wonderful experience. The food, service, and atmosphere were excellent! We got pancakes, and they were some of the best we've ever had.

“Great casual resturant with great entertainment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

We sat outside on a nice shady table on July 6th and had a wonderful meal while we enjoyed the entertainment by Michael Hulett, jax sax and singer and a lot of people where dancing. There were four of us dinning, two had the petite entrees (plenty of food unless you're a big eater) one had the shrimp and one had the blackened shrimp. If you buy an entrée you can also purchase a $10 bottle of wine, we had 2 bottles of Clos du Bois Chardonnay which is an excellent price in a restaurant. The other two had a hamburger and chicken quesadillas which they both enjoyed. Happy hour is from 5 to 7 with discounted margaritas and beers. We have also had breakfast here and it was very good.

“wonderful food and live music”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

Went by this local, non-chain restaurant this weekend, mostly to enjoy Michael Hulett, who is a local saxophonist, vocalist, and great guy. He has been playing at the Fireside grill at least once a month.
We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of our entrees and the reasonable price, as well as drink specials and nice $10. bottle of wine with the purchase of an entrée.
My shrimp and grits was very tasty, and for $9.99, the smaller portion was more than adequate. The wine we chose was Clos du bois chardonnay, which for $10 a bottle, was less than some liquor stores charge for this brand.
Atmosphere was fun, relaxed and the entertainment was outside on a lovely summer evening.
Not a 5 star gourmet restaurant, but everyone at our table enjoyed his or her food and it's a very pleasant and reasonably priced restaurant for this resort island.
