My husband and I have actually lived in the same town as this wonderful dinner theater for the last seven years and have visited multiple times. The show is ALWAYS amazing, even better than I would dream every time. The food is extremely good as well, but as a local, I really wish there was an option to see the... More

Service was excellent and so was the food. Didn't feel like a typical fish fry where a plate of food was placed in front of you...felt more like a nice dinner out. Potato pancakes were great and so were the two types of warm bread. Very nice and above our expectations.

Saw South Pacific on a Thursday eve. The show was outstanding! The buffet was extensive...seafood and meat options plus numerous sides. Delicious! The atmosphere is tropical. Our table was near a water feature. I definitely would recommend this dinner theatre...they do it up right!

We dined with our theatre package. The food was great but not outta this world like the old days. It started with an appetizer which was the best of all the food served - a crusty bread with thin ham, melted cheese & a tomato mix under it all - poor way of describing it but the one small piece...

Thank you for your feedback! We're sorry that you didn't enjoy the featured entree as much as you have others in the past. We're also sorry that your chicken was dry, that was not our intention. The Banana Bread Pudding is a new dessert for us and is accompanied by our homemade vanilla bean ice cream. We have received many... 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

My wife and I had a dinner and theatre package and loved it! You get a five course meal with the theatre package. My wife had the included entre and I upgraded for a small price to salmon and scallops. Both our entrees were perfectly done. We didnt have one complaint. This is really a great atmosphere for a nice... More

Went here with the kids for a nice dinner and show. The last time my husband and I were here was over 10 years ago and we remember it being very upscale and excellent. It was very disappointing and seems to have slipped so much. The decore of the dining room is very poor. The tables and chairs are straight... More

Thank you for your feedback. We're sorry that you did not care for the decor in the dining area. We have been updating the facility and are in the midst of a renovation. We recently finished one of the main dining rooms downstairs, complete with all new lighting, carpeting, tables, chairs, artwork and wall treatments. We are now moving into... More
