At The Fireside Dinner Theatre, we like you to “consider yourself part of the family.” The Klopcic Family’s philosophy is that “people will come to where they have been invited and will return to where they have been made to feel welcome.” This has fostered our growth since opening in 1964 as a small, unique restaurant to today’s two acre entertainment complex housing Wisconsin’s #1 year-round motorcoach attraction.
A group trip to The Fireside will be so popular with your travelers that you’ll receive the applause right along with our talented performers from across the country. Our location in a small city of 12,000 in the heart of scenic southern Wisconsin makes it surprising to some that we are all that we are:
- A 1,000 seat restaurant serving elaborate, unique and delicious meals
- A 700 seat theatre-in-the round with a professional staff and state-of-the-art sound and lighting systems for Broadway quality productions
- A shopping adventure with three permanent gift shops and another seasonal one offering the region’s most complete selection of gifts and collectibles for all ages and occasions
- One of the finest examples of excellent customer service you’ll find in the hospitality industry today
- A destination unto ourselves or the perfect complement to any Wisconsin tour for hundreds of thousands of guests each year
