They have a fireplace that you can sit by and have a romantic dinner for 2. Food is always good and the wine list is plentiful.

The Fireside changed hands about 3 or four yeas ago. The new owner really took major efforts to vastly change the decor of the eatery. I was shocked with great surprise when they finally opened after the major renovations.
The Fireside is place where you can be casual or dressy. The staff is very attentive and friendly.
The facility has banquet capabilities in addition to the regular dinning area.
Most recently the owner has run a special on appitizers which featured 1/2 price on regular items and sometimes special items are added. Last I knew the special prices ran Monday-Thursday.
They also had offered special prices on some adult beverages manhatten or martini's 4.00 on at least one day of the week.
The burger is great as well as the fish on Friday. The hot sausage dip app is to die for. Once you try it you will be hooked.
So if you are looking for a step above place to dine this is a place to check out. By the by, outside dinning is available in the summer weather pending.

We had a dinner here for 5 couples. There was a wedding reception going on in the back room so service was struggling a bit but they tried hard and the food was top notch. Several of the guys had strip steak which they all said was very tender and looked like the size of a prime rib cut. I had an apple cider martini which was very tasty, glass was rimmed with caramel sauce-nice touch. There was a minor temp issue with a prime rib, but it was warmed up and was fine. Appetizers-everyone really liked the avocado/shrimp (?) dip with pita chips that was passed around. I had the bisque and that was nice and creamy. Desserts were big portions, chocolate cake was 4 layers with a peanut butter frosting in between. Others had an apple crumb pie (I believe) which looked equally tasty. Portions of all were large-several of us took things home.
The restaurant is nice inside-quite spacious, nice fireplace in the corner. Big bar on one end with flat screen tvs.
Would recommend (and have done so with friends already) and would definitely go back.

The Lobster was over coked. The Eggplant caprice was wonderful, however. The Service is good. Had a nice diner with the family.

Want a terrible dining experience? Then try the Fireside. Where do I start? Brown lettuce in the salad. A dead fly in the butter. My wife asked for a medium rare steak. The first steak was well done. The second steak came out blood red raw. I thought we were being punked. When we complained they were very indignant. No restaurant can be this bad and still be open. I really don't know how they got so many good ratings.
