Our 91 year young mother has always loved the Fireside Experience. She and dad went often throughout their years together. In fact many times they gave their children tickets as a gift for anniversary or birthdays. This fueled our love for this unique venue. For the last few years we have taken mom to a show to celebrate both mom's... More

I have been visiting the Fireside Theater since I was child, and I have never been disappointed. The food is outstanding along with the service, and the shows are always so much fun! My recommendations are to get tickets early to sit in the first row, but don't be in too much of a hurry to get there to eat.... More

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.

Went to the opening week end of South Pacific! FANTASTIC - A MUST TO SEE as is all of their plays and musicals. The cast outdid themselves!

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!

We loved our first visit to the Fireside Theater!! The facility is very attractive and super clean! We enjoyed our meal, and the show (Beauty and the Beast) was amazing!

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

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.
