Excellent in all ways except for noise level. There really is no “quieter” zone in this restaurant. Suggest anyone with any hearing impairment should dine mid-afternoon!

Shrimp entrees were very good, although could have had a bit more flavor. The bread had been microwaved and was extremely chewy. But the setting was beautiful and lent itself well to conversation and a relaxing meal.

We weren’t wowed by the food but it was nice because of the view and our server was great! Three out of four of us had the crab chowder and it was so so —my husband said it was too sweet and he thought it had bread chunks in it. I had the mango shrimp salad which tasted very good but the amount of shrimp was pretty skimpy and the shrimp weren’t very flavorful. Would have liked to be a little more excited about the food that was served because I love the view and the location.

Loved it - their early dinner menu is the way to go! The top on the burnt cream was a little thick, but still yummy!

We have been to your restaurant a number of times. We’ve have some excellent meals, and some very disappointing ones. Our last visit was really subpar.
My wife’s rotisserie half chicken was dry and over roasted. My ling cod was tough, improperly sauced, and just not very good. We both ordered bake potatoes which were overladen with butter, and just ok. Better to not offer this option than to offer it as an after thought.On other occasions both these dishes have been excellent. We’ve both enjoyed the chicken Cobb salad in the past, but have had less than great experiences with that dish as well.
We finished our meal both saying it was time to try other places, and not return, reasoning that we just couldn’t count on the quality.
Your restaurant has a wonderful location, and an attractive dining room, and would be perfect for hosting out of town visitors. With it’s inconsistency we would reluctant to choose it.Too bad. We’ve certainly given the Hearth fire a fair shot.

I ordered the Surf and Turf (Wagyu beef and prawns) which was the Sunday night special. It came with diced potatoes and asparagus. The vegetables were very under cooked, and the beef was the toughest piece of meat I ever had. How they get away with calling it Wagyu is beyond me. The shrimp was fine, and the salmon my husband ordered was fine. The service was slow and unprofessional, but the management was decent enough to take the inedible meal off our bill. Needless to say, we won’t be back.

Four of us went out for a celebration. The server was quite knowledgeable, and recommended two of the fresh catches, as well as the early-bird, four-course special. Three of us had the special; one had the halibut. All food was very good. The prices are on the higher side for the area, so we tend to reserve going there for special occasions (maybe 6-8 times a year).

We took mom there on Mother’s Day and had a great experience. Even though it was a busy, crowded holiday dinner hour, we did not feel rushed or that the service was lacking in any way.
Rhubarb Slump for dessert, you won’t be disappointed.

The place was nice, the food was ok. I find the price a tad bit over priced. You're definitely paying for the view. The sausage and scones are obviously made from scratch which is nice but blueberry crepes for $17 just seems too much for my liking. The only seafood option I could have for the mother's day brunch was the shrimp salad but I wanted breakfast. The server was nice and helped modify everything due to my gluten intolerance. I asked for no cheese however I didn't notice until she had already did her"two bite check" so ended up just eating around it. Most likely won't come here again. I like more bang for my buck and would prefer more seafood options.

It is most definitely not a place for children as they do not know the difference with quality food, and it was very off putting with the noise and the dress code as well. It should definitely be a bit enforced since some folks were way too underdressed for the type of restaurant.
Definitely great food though; again, I just wish they’d separate Hearthfire from a family restaurant since we already have the Seafood Anthony’s restaurant. Other than that, great food!

The food was very good. However, the price point was too high for some of the dishes. And calling hamburger sandwiches "steak" is stretching things.

The food and view were great. However, with reservations our table was okay. After we can in, and after we were seated another couple came in without reservations, were told they won't have a very good table, and then they were seated at one of the best tables, by the windows! Our server was okay, but took too long to come back and check on us. The food was excellent! It was clean and the bus boy was friendly and responsive.

My experience and meal were excellent! I had the seasonal salad and LOVED it! Also had the galic and herb chicken. My chicken was tender and moist. My husband didn't care much for his dinner. He had the clam corn chowder, it was more soup like than chowder like, he had the Halibut and received a small piece and it was dry and burnt in some places.

Overall great. The “early bird” dinner is a lot of food but a good value. The beef appetizer on bruschetta was too tough to eat without cutting. The key lime pie in a jar made up for it. A.so enjoyed the generous sized glass of Chardonnay at the early price.

My husband and I had Easter brunch. Delicious French toast & sausage. My husband had the scramble. Great service & little wait time. Side note: We had lunch here a couple of months ago & the food was disappointing. The Manager immediately contacted me & apologized. He also sent a gift certificates or 2 complimentary lunches. We’ve always had good meals here and enjoy our time. We were impressed that the manager reached out & made things right. That does not happen often.
