    Service very nice and helpful. Cozy dining room with nice views. Very average food. We had Eggs Benedict for one meal that were overcooked eggs on strange bread. At dinner the small plate scallops were undercooked with strange sauce. Spinach salad not good. Poor spinach and strange dressing. Side bread not good. Dry and hard! Smash Burger and fries Excellent and saved us! We had fun but food needs improvement!

    The Fireside Restaurant is one of the best in the area. We were kind of a noisy group as we celebrated my husband’s and my 54th wedding anniversary. The servers were all very tolerant and I have no idea how they kept everything straight but they did! The children’s meals were even delivered as soon as they were done prior to the adults. They are very kind and a good reason to return. The food was good And the views are lovely.

    Casual dressy when we went. Farm/sea to fork menu. I had perfectly cooked halibut and Hubs had perfectly cooked flat iron steak. Dessert was creme brulee and apple tart. Both perfect. Food was excellent, service was attentive and we had to buy one of the gurgling fish pitchers on the way out. We ate indoors but the porch would be great if the weather were a bit warmer.

    We have eaten here several times and enjoyed it. This time we went for Sunday brunch and food/service was not up to their usual standards. Removed plates too early, felt rushed and didn’t offer desert. The music was on so loud we couldn’t hear our conversation.

    Nice location. Service was good. I got the tenderloin which came with two chunks. Cooked well but meat lacked flavor and was tough. My wife got spinach salad, which was very good, and mushroom soup. If you were blindfolded and ate the soup you would have no idea what it was. Very bland and zero flavor. Overall highly average

    With some very minor qwibbles over some choices made in a few dishes in our valentines day repast, the Fireside was an exemplary dining experience . A suggestion was made that either the server describe each dish as presented or leave the prix fixe menu on table. With five courses, the older mind sometimes has trouble remembering the entirety of the repast. The wine (pinot) by the glass needed a bit to open up as the volatiles in the nose on presentation were still dominant. A decanted or at least rested glass would have presented better and did so after approximately ten minutes. As for the food, a dessert selection via a dessert cart would have gone a long way to five stars. The soup opener was a standout, along with the fish. The palate cleanser ice was not completely granularized so there were large unbreakable ice chunks, especially at the bottom. There was a bit too large a portion of potatoes in the main course for a multicourse dinner, but the protein was excellent. A cheese course wouldn't have gone amiss, but wasn't truly missed as there was an abundance of food. The ambiance was good and quiet, it was mentioned that the gas fireplace kept going out and restarting which ruined the illusion of a crackling fire in the room. Overall though a lovely night out.

    Really good food - small menu of seasonal and local fare, so not a ton of choices, but everything we had was perfectly cooked and delicious. Service was incredible, getting us a wine that wasn't on their regular wine list and getting some extra sides to try from other entrees. The ambiance was a little off, seemed like it was too brightly lit (for me).

    Nickie is a wonderful server. It's always beautiful at the Inn. The food is fabulous. We enjoyed the prime rib dinner with mushroom strudel as a starter. Yummy. I only gave 4 stars for food because of the horseradish sauce served with the meat. While creamy and good, it had no bite. A little more horseradish please. We'll be back

    Was disappointed that with the name Fireside, there was no fire in the fireplace. Minor, but noticeable. The service was very slow to start with. Felt ignored or invisible. Once we got a waitress she was capable and mostly helpful. I know it was a busy night for the crew so I appreciate that. Mostly 3stars. The chef deserves a lot of credit for his menu and food!

    It was disappointing to find out that it was a fixed menu for Christmas Eve dinner. I didn’t want most of what was offered, but we were stuck. My husband made faces as he swallowed the app with mushrooms which he hates. They thankfully made me chicken which was not on the menu because I don’t eat beef or fish. And I couldn’t enjoy more than a few bites of chocolate which I’m trying to avoid because it sends my heart pounding. We had no choices. I won’t be doing this again sadly, but will be happy to come back with a full range of choices on the menu.

    I ordered Cioppino. For $32, I received a 3 inch piece of cod, 5 mussels, 2 shrimp, and about a half cup of broth. The flavor was good, but the quantity was barely enough for an appetizer. Highly overpriced. A great disappointment for a restaurant that was previously known for its excellent cuisine.

    Port Ludlow Inn was all lit up with holiday lights and it was magical to spend a few hours having dinner at Fireside. We were able to order off the happy hour menu and the food and drinks were very good. Our table ordered lemon drops, martinis and an assortment of appetizers to share. Everything was wonderful.

    The wrap was refrigerator cold. The tortilla was like cold leather. I tried to eat the inside Italian ingredients that had large thick slices of cold salami very unappetizing. My friend ordered chocolate mousse which had an unpleasant texture instead of smooth texture and did not eat it. We were disappointed in the food but enjoyed our time together in the restaurant as it was our Christmas get together. The wait staff were great. We did not bother them with our dissatisfaction with the food. Venue was wonderful but the food offered needs to be improved.

    We were sadly disappointed with our recent dining experience. The magic we once felt with The Fireside was not there. The menu was lackluster and when I did decide on something I was told they were out, ended up settling for a salad that was nothing to write home about. I wish now that we had read other reviews and/or previewed the menu. I don't expect we will be returning anytime soon.

    Lovely spot on a sunny day. Have enjoyed the food at the Fireside several times before. Left Thursday with lots of leftovers. A plus for sure! Fabulous salad. Turkey was yummy. Sides for the most part were tasty. Brussel sprouts were overcooked even though we were there early in the day (was looking forward to an innovative recipe from this chef and didn’t get it). Was surprised at the small size of the pumpkin pie slices. Overall we had a wonderful time with plenty of good food to eat.
