Group of four for last seating on Thanksgiving. No problem. The waitstaff was good-natured and prompt in everything. The greeters were super friendly. The food was plentiful and nice - just the kind of American fare you'd want on Thanksgiving. The decor is cozy, kind of 1970's comfort place, just like the food is comfort food. Nice bar. Overall, a really nice experience. I'll probably come to this restaurant on my way home from work from now on.

Prices were a little higher than the small portions were worth. Even dessert was a sliver of a piece. The waitress took our bread away as we got our food. And since when is a prepaid visa card not accepted?

Hi Susan, thank you for dining with us and for taking the time to leave a review. Would it be possible to connect with you? If so, please reply to this message with your contact information. We happily provide multiple baskets of bread to our guests. Most every guest took leftovers home on the holiday. I would like to get more detail to see how this might have occurred and to make things right. Prepaid gift cards are always accepted, but often have pre-approval issues for gratuity etc.

I know where we are going in the future for Thanksgivings and any other special occasion in the future. The Thanksgiving menu was perfect with the usual suspects with a tasty traditional turkey dinner but an amazing prime rib, best claim chowder I have had in awhile and the pumpkin pie, made with love was a food memory of my grandmothers house on Thanksgivings past. Also, the service was awesome and the cocktails also delish; recommend an expresso martini.

Date night with the hubby. First time here and it did not disappoint! This was the first time I have ever heard my husband so excited to try so many things on the menu. We will be returning to fulfill his wishes of trying everything on the menu. Oh, and the drinks… SO GOOD!

The food was not exactly hot. The utensils used to take buffet food were full of food as were the small plates to put them in when you are done. They should have been switched out for clean fresh ones often. Apple crisp was just average. Ryan was attentive and picked up used plates often. Adam came around to remind us that buffet was going to be closed up shortly and to get what we wanted. I would not go to this buffet again

I always enjoy going to the Fireside. We always have great service. Everything was going well until the server asked us if we wanted take out boxes while we were still eating. A few minutes goes by and he asks again. Then he says that he has a reservation coming in for a friends birthday and they want our table. So we said “so you are asking us to leave?” He said yes. I guess we had gone over our time limit. We never linger at a table longer than it takes to dine comfortably. We were celebrating a birthday that night and was very disappointed the way it ended.

Food was excellent! We were seated right away even though we showed up early before our reservation time. Our server was kind, knowledgeable and exceeded our expectations. Considering the staff shortages going on the Fireside was well prepared to take on the demands of a Saturday night crowd. Would definitely go back.

A fluck visit we hope. Waited ½ hour after being seated for server to come by. Appetizer was past it’s prime. Never got our entrees.
A very disappointing visit. Normally, food and service is great. Hoping this was an aberration.

This was my first time for brunch there. My concern was that juice and soft drinks were not included in the price of the brunch like at other places. My wife had ordered an omelette it came over cooked so she didn’t eat it the server was very good but should’ve picked upOn the overcoat omelette .The other issue would be there were no signs in front of the items on the tables so each one had to be opened. Will not rush back based on my concerns.Another point I had asked the hostess if juice was included and she said yes.

Service was very slow and very confused. Seemed like we were the only table that wasn't served bread. When the food eventually came to the table it was cold. Very noisy environment (Not helped by an undisciplined screaming child). Found the appetizers very pricey. Not a good value. Won't be hurrying back anytime soon.

UPDATE* I was sent a public comment from the establishment saying reach out and we will make it right. So I responded to them and have not heard back. Maybe trying to save face publicity but not following through. I’d avoid this place. Server was very nice and it seems like a good place but there were 6 of us and all had cold food. Prime rib mashed potato was barely room temp. First time I’ve ever sent food back in my life but it was gray with no pink when ordered med. They just put warm au jus over top of it and sent it back. Meat temp was unchanged and there was no liquid on it when I sent them back but they came back with a considerable of liquid on the plate. Good service bad food. Maybe it was just what we ordered but it wasn’t very busy so I don’t know why it would be so cold.

Tim, My apologies for such a poor showing. We literally serve hundreds of cuts of prime rib every week and each one should be perfect. There is no excuse for this. Please reply back to this message so that we can make up for our shortcomings. Many thanks.

We were seated right away with our reservation. We have been to the Sunday buffets prior to shutdown and were very happy. I was somewhat disappointed with the quantity of food but the quality was good. There was only the one carving station of Prime Rib, which my husband loved. There was salad but no dressing, not many lunch items, more breakfast food, which was OK with me as I prefer breakfast foods but considering it was a brunch, I expected more. I understand they just restarted the brunch, so hopefully it will get better.
