Preparing For Your Visit During COVID-19
The Fireside takes the health of our staff and guests very seriously and while we have always maintained the highest standards for cleanliness and safety, we are also following guidelines recommended for all restaurants at this time. Some of these changes are noticeable and others behind the scenes but just as in any theatrical production, both sides are essential to its success. Our goal remains the same, to make you feel welcome and provide each guest with a memorable experience through friendly, courteous and gracious service. Here is what you can expect during your visit to The Fireside:
