The Fireside always had a great ambience. Food was good, but I don't think it was worth the price. The service was good. We made the reservation early but did not get the lakeside table we requested. The new remodel was a pleasant surprise and very nice.
Fabulous lakefront dining. Excellent service! Deliciously fresh food!
Great food and service
Dessert was so so
It was wonderful, anniversary for dear friends and Sarah , our server was so polite and Made it a super experience!!!
During these trying times the Fireside is doing an excellent job of continuing its tradition of high-quality service and food. We continue to use the outside patio as we find it to be very quiet and comfortable. The inside dining room has recently been remodeled and re-decorated presenting a very modern chophouse feel. A full menu is available and my favorites are the filet and the ribs. My father introduced us to The Fireside back in the 50s and we continue to visit them today.
We always enjoy going over on the pontoon, docking is easy and the ambiance is outstanding. The food was good, and the service and personal care during Covid is well thought out. We’ll be back, one of our favorites on Detroit Lake!
Very nice meal. The walleye was terrific, the pork tenderloin was tender and cooked perfectly.
Service was exceptional.
Good value considering the quality.
It was for a Birthday celebration. We had a wonderful time. Service was superb! Our waitress was amazing. 😊
Their patio is gorgeous and the service and food were excellent. They practice amazing COVID precautions — it feels good eating there!
A magical night at The Fireside! The food was superb, the service impeccable and the view- WOW!
This was my birthday dinner and so good! Barb was our server and she was soooo good!!! We appreciated the table by the window that we requested! I live in Ohio but come to North Dakota and Minnesota every July! We cone to the Fireside to celebrate m, my Mother always treated me to dinner at the Fireside when she was living!
Beautiful place and wonderful food! The view was awesome!
We had an excellent walleye dinner and our server Kathleen was very pleasant. Very good experience.
Good food & good service
We asked for outdoor seating and were given a table in a COVID era extension of their outdoor deck. Fireside made good use of the beautiful lawn between the deck and lake. The lake was less visible because of the trees, but the atmosphere was magical. Real dining chairs were set out at glass topped tables, cloth napkins completing each table setting. It truly was beautiful. I’ll be back next time I’m in town!
Great place to Eat and Great Happy Hour. Service is alway great.
We four enjoyed the friendly and professional service by Kimo our server. From wine, cocktails, and hors d’ Oeuvres to entrees and dessert, the fare was creatively tasty! Our only complaint was that the cheeseboard was a bit bare: Slivers of a couple exotic cheeses, a dollop of wonderful bleu cheese, very few crackers and bread - even for two people; we were sharing among the four of us. Loved the savory balsamic grapes and fig spread. Our main dishes were: crusted walleye, spaghetti with pecorino cheese, lasagna, and tenderloin. All received High Marks! Creme Brulee was perfect, a “custom-ordered” chocolate sundae much appreciated, and the Trash Can brownie savored. (We didn’t care for the music playing too loud on “our deck,” but we didn’t ask to have it turned down.) All in all, a lovely evening out. We will be back soon!! Judy Hatlie
We were celebrating two birthdays. We all enjoyed a delicious meal as well as a wonderful family get together. The Fireside is a great place to eat and relax with family and friends!
Our food was fantastic. Service a bit slow and not as attentive...we ran out of ice early as it has been in the past but she was kind; young...and busy—running up and down the stairs with I’d guess many other customers to wait on. But food was fantastic and the weather was perfect!
Love the Fireside!! Food was awesome!! We will be back 👍
Excellent as always
The Fireside never disappoints. Great food, impeccable service and of course wonderful lakeside views of Detroit Lake as you dine. They have redecorated the main indoor dining area and bar so if you haven't been there for a while, check out their new look.
I love the ambiance, and the view of the lake. Food is good and service is great. Staff followed safety regulations and wore masks. We felt safe.
It was fabulous! We were celebrating our 53rd wedding anniversary and it was awesome
Excellent!! Very nice evening celebrating my husband and I’s Anniversary
We had a 6 pm reservation. After waiting 35 minutes for our table we ordered our food to go. Our table finally became available at 6:45
We had great staff and great food! We will be back.
Wonderful food and drinks and excellent service - can’t wait to go again.
The recently renovated Fireside was a great choice for our first dinner out after the mandated stay at home order. Everything about our evening out and dinner was excellent. The menu has many choices. I have a hard time moving past the always delicious walleye, and my husband chose the rib-eye which was cooked to perfection! The service was excellent and we certainly enjoyed the recent updates to the interior of the restaurant. We will be back to dine many times during our summer stay in Detroit Lakes.
We enjoyed our meal, service was very good. It’s a very nice atmosphere and the view is lovely!
Considering social distancing rules in effect, team FS did awesome. Feel for them that another table or two would have benefitted both establishment and wanting customer.
The mid-evening rain didn’t help.
Food was fresh, presented swell, and proportioned appreciately.
Food, atmosphere and service were all great. We will definitely return.
The food was exceptional and the outside patio experience was beautiful!
We always enjoy going to the Fireside for a special occasion. We were so happy to be on the patio and celebrate our anniversary! The food was delicious!
I was so pleased how our dining experience was so great in spite of pandemic rules! The staff at the Fireside did a fantastic job!
Love eating outside as the sun sets. Our server was awesome on this last visit!
It was our 41st anniversary and will be one to remember. Thank you so much, we enjoyed ourselves over looking Big Detroit and the fine dinner,
I ordered a medium rare steak and it was medium, disappointed.
Excellent dining experience! The service was outstanding and the food was prepared to perfection:)
My husband’s steak was medium and my steak was medium rare. Opposite of what we ordered. We let Seth know.
