The Fireside Restaurant, Waterfront Dining
The blade steak was excellent. It was as tender as prime rib and very flavorful. Platings were beautiful. Absolutely LOVED the French Toast for Sunday Brunch. My wife (a french toast connoisseur) says it is hands down the best she has ever had!
Ava was a terrific server! Love the Fireside as it never disappoints!
The Fireside Restaurant cooks their steaks excellently. Very tasty and cooked as ordered.
Terrific birthday dinner. Great atmosphere on the waterfront in Port Ludlow.
You never go wrong here. We continue to have great experiences at the Fireside Restaurant in Port Ludlow.
We've gone for lunch several times but went for dinner this time. The menu was locally sourced, as advertised, with a variety of options. I had the sturgeon and it was perfectly prepared. Very much enjoyed the tapenade served with the bread but the bread could be better. Our server was very attentive.
Incredible meal. Amazing service. We love coming here. We had dinner and breakfast. So good both times.
Some of the highest quality fare on the peninsula. Our waitress was attentive without being overbearing. Expect to spend a premium amount. Atmosphere was quiet and quaint. Overall a romantic evening and will return.
This place is fantastic. Small but very well put together, the staff are fantastic, amazing food and drinks, even the prices were fantastic. Seriously, go here.
We have come back year after year for a romantic weekend getaway. The restaurant never disappoints! This year we were even in a crazy snow storm that Port Ludlow rarely experiences but yet the resort and restaurant were fully staffed and still gave their high level of service and excellent culinary experience. Thank you!
Much better than last time Food service prices and selection were great. There is NO where else to eat in the area so we genuinely want this place to do well. We ate in the dining room for dinner and had great food attentive service and accommodated a dietary concern with no issue at all. A lot of places will do that but there is an eye roll lol. This was great. We also got a to go order to have in our room and it was great. Much improved since our last trip.
Our server, Thuy, was wonderful! We thoroughly enjoyed our evening.
One of my all time favorite places to be. The food, wine and atmosphere are always top notch.
Had an amazing dinner with my friend for her birthday.
We had an enjoyable evening at the Fireside Restaurant. Although the food was very good, what we will remember most is the excellent service. At a time when many restaurants keep as little staff as possible, The Fireside Restaurant was well staffed by friendly and attentive professionals. The Restaurant is a beautiful and is situated in a beautiful marina. We will be going back often.
40th Wedding Anniversary celebration. Water view table overlooking the marina at Port Ludlow. Food was fabulous. Service was thoughtfully attentive.
Food was delightfully fantastic, service was good, atmosphere was relaxing. We enjoyed several meals there!
Beautiful spot, waterfront views, great food and service.
Excellent food! We had breakfast and dinner at the restaurant and both were completely amazing. I would highly recommend it.
I can not even begin to describe how delicious the food is. We stayed at the adjoining Inn so we ate several meals there (including breakfast) and they did not disappoint. Even the butter they brought out with the bread was other-worldly. Everything is made from local ingredients and the menu is always changing. If you love excellent food then this is worth the drive and the money. We are not drinkers but the wine list they brought out was the size of a small novel so I am sure a wine lover would find something spectacular inside.
We went there for our wedding anniversary. The food was awesome! We will definitely be going back!
Great service. Wonderful wine list. The steamed clams appetizer was really good, and the scallops were delicious.
arrived in time for happy hr, the mussels were delish and beet salad was. yummy
The restaurant din was slightly louder than I had hope, but not intrusively loud. We have enjoyed several dinners at this restaurant and like to keep it for special occasions. The food was excellent and well timed- the wine menu is extensive and price ranges were from affordable to expensive. Nice place.. great food.. Enjoyed the eveing.
My husband and I came to Port Ludlow by boat and ate at the fireside for our anniversary dinner, it was excellent! Kind staff, good food just a great find!
If you are coming to the Port Ludlow Resort by boat, as we did, plan on treating yourself to a night ashore for dinner at The Fireside Restaurant - you won't be disappointed. The quality of the food is superb, well worth the price on the menu. My only quibble: Fireside should add two or three relatively reasonably priced Chardonnays from Washington's Columbia Valley on the wine list; IMO the ones on the list are pricey. Consequently, we chose a Syrah instead when we would have preferred white wine with our meal.
What a great surprise when we were at Port Ludlow and we ate at the Fireside. Had no idea they were such a gourmet restaurant but well priced. Absolutely delicious food for brunch and also lunch and early dinner. Fantastic staff. Beautiful view and beautiful interior decor. Absolutely loved it can’t wait to go back.
Wonderful meal and friendly service. We each ordered a seafood dish and we enjoyed our meals. Loved the view and ambiance, too.
Dinner was amazing. My husband ordered the farm lamb chops and was in heaven. He said "hands down the best ever" I had the halibut and it was also amazing. Fresh farm lettuce salads and to die for dessert. We were also very impressed with the wine selection which was is quite extensive . All together a wonderful evening!
Excellent service by Tudor. Great meal.
A friend and I share the same birthday, and we enjoyed our birthday lunch at the Fireside. I have been there several times, but it was her first. We both liked the resort and lunch very much.
Came from Sunday brunch. Service was on the slower/less attentive side, however the food was good and ambiance was exactly what we were looking for while celebrating fathers day.
We were staying at the Inn at Port Ludlow so we made reservations for dinner a couple weeks ago. It was a beautiful and warm evening but when we were checking in, the host told hostess to seat us by the fireplace —-which was on. As soon as we sat down, we were uncomfortably warm. We asked if we could move elsewhere and were told no. They finally did turn fireplace off but I felt like we were being unreasonable. Our server seemed stressed and had too many tables. It took forever to get both our cocktails. Mine was so sickeningly sweet that I had to send it back and ordered wine. Steamed clams were ok. Bread tasted like popping fresh dough loaves. Our main dishes were not great. My husbands was better. Mine was bland and tasted like retirement home food.it lacked seasoning. Both dishes were SO overpriced for the size and quantity. Lucky for them that they are the ONLY game in town, otherwise they would not last. Would stay at inn again -enjoyed that- but would bring our own food next time!
Great meal. Best service we have ever had. The atmosphere was pleasant. The view of the water was beautiful. We ate 2 meals at the restaurant and they both exceeded our expectations.
I was really disappointed in my experience at Fireside. I brought my 72 year old mother from Arizona to Mothers Day Brunch. Upon entering the girl seating people was not welcoming. She seemed very stressed and overwhelmed with her job. We were seated promptly, but we were taken to a table in a dark corner, with no chairs. I was told very matter of factly when I asked for another table that I should’ve put in a special request if I wanted a decent table. I walked up to the front to speak to the girl overwhelmed with her job, and she very rudely told me I can’t make a request to change tables and they’ll get me some chairs. I was stunned. I’ve worked in customer service for 15 years and I would never treat a customer the way I was treated. It wasn’t until I asked for a manager that we were seated at a table(with chairs) and a beautiful view. The service we received was excellent by our waiter. The food was really good, although the selection was pretty slim for the buffet room. Although we won’t be coming back there, I really hope some customer service training is implemented with staff so no one else has to experience the type of service we received from the girl greeting at the front. Kudos to the chefs! The creme brûlée was excellent, Food 10/10, service1/10.
Very relaxing yet upscale cuisine. Wine pairing s were fabulous.
Loud 6 party table next to us. Had to ask for bread. Service not up to par based upon prior visits.
Great food, excellent service, pleasant atmosphere. Flat iron steak always great.
Took my sister and daughter-in-law for St. Patrick's day dinner to celebrate 2 wonderful people. Food was good, view WONDERFUL and service outstanding! THANKS!!
The food, friendly service, the wine steward -- it was all great!
