This is a small restaurant with a bar, not a lot of dining area. The food is real good though and the price is right.

The staff are terrific and the food is hearty and very tasty. Before ordering I checked out everyone else's table to get some hints, and it all looked great. Was going to go for something simple like a salad, but was easily swayed to one...More

Here at the Fireside, we've been serving traditional American favorites for generations. For decades families, friends and visitors have walked in with a desire to bond, or just tell a good story over great food, a full bar and friendly staff. Whether you're here for five days or five generations, there's really no place that feels as much as home.
