  • "Close to Old Town and the Comedy Clubs. Bad Parking better to cab it. ~Pat"
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "I wouldn't classify the upstairs as a restaurant, as the website led us to believe. it's an extension of the bar. This is pretty critical depending on the kind of dining experience you're seeking. Our servers were very attentive and friendly. The small loft area had at least 5 televisions blaring plus music on top of that. We couldn't hear each other speak. The chicken, steak and baked potato were over-cooked but very flavorful. This would be a very fun place to hang with old friends, but I wouldn't recommended it for family or anyone looking for real conversation."

  • "Used to be a very good restaurant when we lived in the neighborhood 35 year. It was a favorite. Now it's a sports bar that's designed for drinking. Food is secondary. If your over 30 you will find it too loud and crowded to enjoy dinner. We were there on a Friday for an early dinner. Maybe weekdays are better?"

  • "After reading the reviews we thought we would give this place a try. I am not sure where everyone else is eating, but the food was really bad. Even the onion rings tasted like nothing but grease. We had a variety of food and nothing was good. Server was nice and the place was fine- food was horrible!"

  • "Had a great time here with friends for a birthday outing! The menu is very large and the food was good. They even took requests about where we wanted to sit and came out with cheesecake for our birthday boy!"

  • "Food was good, table sucked, bumped every time someone needed the bathroom. Popularity is a burden because clearly more space is needed"

  • "Food was wonderful, but it was so loud you could hardly hear the person you came to dinner with. Not good for a date night, but seemed good for groups of people or for a night out with friends."

  • "I have been to Fireplace probably 20 times and will continue to go back. Great environment, great food, and amazing in the summer to sit outside and be in the middle of all of the action. MUST GO on Thursdays and get the 1/2 off Vodka lemonades, probably one of the best deals in Chicago and definitely their claim to fame."

  • "I lived in old town from 2004-2006 and USED TO love dining at Fireplace Inn. I was extremely disappointed upon my visit there in November (2013). There is no longer a restaurant/dining room area since their recent renovation. It seems as though they moved what used to be the heated outdoor bar area inside, replacing pretty much every aspect of what used to be a cozy, quiet dining room. It was almost impossible to carry on a conversation during this particular visit to Fireplace Inn. Had I known the above-mentioned, I would have made a special request for upstairs seating upon having made a reservation for 2."

  • "Place was too cold. Sat us by a door and was very drafty. Waitress made minimal visits to our table. Not overly excited about the food. Will not go back and will not recommend. Will tell people not to eat there."

  • "Had not been to the Fireplace in years. It was not bad but was definitely not what I remember. The crowd was too young and it was way too noisy for me."
