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.

We absolutely love Fireside! The staff are attentive and super friendly. The food is outstanding! We feel the prices are exactly on par with other similar restaurants and well worth every penny! Everytime we travel to Elliot Lake (which is often since family is there) this is a must go for food! I highly recommend it! Never had a bad experience and the food is always outstanding!

But, good quality food and great, friendly service. The atmosphere can get a bit loud at times. Place is clean and attractive...good for singles, couples, or families.

Experience
Eight business lunches and dinners on separate occasions since re-opening.

Description
The Fireside Classic Grill is located on Oakland Blvd, off Hwy 108 on the right as you enter Elliot Lake. This location is new, the old Fireside was located downtown. Guests are seated in a timely manner, but drink orders and order preparation are slow at peak times (12-1, 5-7). The menu has appetizers, salads, small lunch menu, sandwiches, and typical fare like pasta, ribs, wings, steak and fajitas. There are free refills on pop. The food is generally ok, although never spectacular. The price is expensive for the moderate quality food, but it is one of only a few restaurants in Elliot Lake with a warm and up-scale atmosphere suitable for business meetings, or casual meals. Special requests can be accommodated for a fee (for instance shrimp fajitas with 4 shrimp are offered at $22, instead of chicken fajitas at $18).

Recommended menu items
Carrot soup was well spiced and tasty (this was a soup of the day).
Nachos are traditional and are generous.
Canadian Burger was well done and as expected.
Classic shrimp Alfredo is a bit watery and is more of a wine sauce than a traditional Alfredo, but otherwise good.
Pickerel is nice but ask for the sauce on the side.
Big salad is good but ask for the dressing on the side.
Fudgy Peanut Butter Cluster is delicious!
Chicken fajitas are as expected.

Menu items not recommended:
The capelletti is not recommended as the noodles are typically undercooked (3 separate occasions)
Caesar salad dressing is strong with respect to garlic (not roasted, but fresh garlic) and has caused indigestion on several occasions. (3 separate occasions)
Garlic bread with cheese is soggy and has too much cheese that is undercooked. Get the garlic bread without cheese if you must, but its overpriced.
Mushroom spinach salad is oily and flavorless.

We enjoyed our meals and the atmosphere. It was good but not good enough to make a special 45 minute trip from Massey.
