We've been searching for a great restaurant in Kitsap or Jefferson county, and have only found "okay" places. We went here for my husband's birthday, mainly because of it's proximity to our friends, and found it absolutely AMAZING! From the freshly baked bread to the last bite of dessert, every bite was satisfying and truly tasty! The wine list was... More

We ate dinner here during our stay at the Resort at Port Ludlow. The dishes we chose were delicious and the atmosphere was quiet. There is a water view and a fireplace of course. Returned for breakfast on the day of our check out. Give it a try!

We booked at New Year for Valentine's Day requesting a window, and staying at the hotel could have happily adjusted the time of seating to facilitate this. We were seated in a middle room, overheated from the fireplace, with staff walking past quickly and loudly throughout meal (middle room a thoroughfare). Our server was lovely and the food was fine...

Ouch. We are very sorry that this was your experience. Excellent service does not override the quality of the food - and though we appreciate the comment, we regret that the overall experience was a disappointment. Thank you for this honest review. More

I like to meet up with friends for lunch (and happy hour too for that matter) at the Fireside. I can always count on delicious locally sourced menu items and a cozy space to enjoy conversation. It's a great place with a wonderful view of the marina and the Olympics.

Perfect destination any time if the year. Warm and comforting in the winter with the beautiful fireplace. Beautiful setting in the summer for dining out on the patio. The food is always carefully prepared and delicious. A must do.

Fireside offers an unusual menu with some favorites. Must recommend the pork with polenta, absolutely incredible. Atmosphere is quaint, romantic on a winter night with candles, and the harbor setting. Wait staff excellent.

The Restaurant is located inside the Ludlow Resort. I made reservations a week prior and arrived tonight and had dinner. Service was spot on and the food was excellent! They have great atmosphere as well.
