Saw this play on opening day last week. Excellent! If you have an opportunity to see it definitely GO! This theater is worth every penny. No matter what production it is always excellent. The meals are always very tasty and home made breads are good enough to take a loaf home, and I always do! Enjoy.

I visit the Fireside often, for the plays and for the food. The Fireside is probably better known for the shows, so the fish fry is kind of a hidden gem. Though some people might think it is expensive, considering what you get, the prices for fish fry are relatively on par with others in the area. The quality however... More

We really love the baked fish with the buerre blanc sauce. Plus our waitress kept our bread basket filled with lots of cheesey bread! Yum!

The performers were excellent, the sound perfect, and the seats were very comfortable. The way they stage it is incredible! The gifts shops are really nice, and the bathrooms are... More

We attended the Beauty and the Beast Midday Show this past Sunday and we will definitely be going back! The play was absolutely fantastic! The only thing I would say is the portion sizes of the meal were a bit lacking. The main meal was short ribs with green beans and a stuffed potato. The dressing in the salad was... More

Thank you for your feedback, we certainly appreciate it! We're glad you enjoyed your experience with us! We're sorry that we did not have the bread available at the bakery when you went to purchase it. We had actually sold out all of the loaves of the bread that we were serving at the table that day, it was a... More

I have been to The Fireside many times. Usually my family goes to the Christmas shows. We have done the Saturday dining only and recently saw Beauty & the Beast. I don't know why I haven't written a review yet. We clearly love the place. The food: I love their food. For many years, we just went with the entree... More

I attended the opening of Beaty and the,Beast. The buffet dinner was sensational. A great variety of seafood, chicken, and beef. The show was amazing. Note that there is not a bad seat in the house. Plenty of leg room and wide seats. Highly recommended.
