“Great Meal, Rustic Atmosphere”
Reviewed 20 January 2014

The prime rib I ordered was delicious. The service was friendly. The large open fireplace (real wood, not gas) was warm and inviting as was the all the decor. It was everything a ski area restaurant should be. The prices are reasonable. I will definetely come here again on my next trip to Lake Placid

“Disappointing !!!!!”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

guys i really wanted to like this place.
its got a great environment but the service was rushed
wines very expensive for what they were.
and the table next to us ordered some pasta and were told they cant make it for them fresh ???
The butter was horrible, the plates were not clean. Actually the whole place was dirty...

“70's flashback!!!”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

Regular maintenance is not a top priority here, the place is looking old and very tired. tables were worn, crooked, chairs barely holding together. The men's washroom was filthy. I have been to many places that do not focus on maintenance but rather the food. Our waitress suggested the roast beef au jus...I went ahead with that and I got cool slab of roast beef very dry NO jus. Our waitress tried and was actually quite pleasant, it was not her fault that our experience was negative. Another party of 4 we travelled with was charged an extra couple of drinks and an additional entrée. This was quickly sorted out in short time despite the restaurant trying to convince them otherwise. Also overheard staff at front entrance speak very rudely with a patron regarding their experience. Sorry Fireside Steak House, it takes more than a location on a main strip in a tourist town to have me come back, you fail on several fronts, I will return to Lake Placid but not to darken your doorstep.

“Poor service”
Reviewed 4 January 2014 via mobile

Waited for over 1 hour and a half for are food. The staff are very rude. We were excited to go and we were realy disappointed. Even the waitress behind the bar on are way out was rude to us. We were a group of 40 and everybody was disappointed. It's the last time that we are going there. It could happen to have slow service but to be rude we don't accept that. Worst restaurent service ever.

“Mediocre at best”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

A group of us had dinner at the restaurant. The help seemed pleasant enough trying to accommodate us. Five of us ordered steaks and all five were cooked wrong, overcooked, dry, and no flavor. When we complained nothing was done our waitress just said sorry. One person in our party sent his steak back only to have the waitress bring it back sliced open to "prove" that it was rare enough, very tacky. The salmon was decent, but we were hoping for a good steak in a steak place. Deserts were just ok. I won't go back again, there are better options in Lake Placid.
