The Fireside Restaurant, Waterfront Dining
We sat outside and the view of the Marina was great. They turned on the gas fireplace heaters and it was very comfortable. But the best part of the experience was the food. The food was truly outstanding. It was the best meal that we have had in a very long time, from the bread on the table to the entree. Every detail was gourmet. We had a bit of an issue with the Inn, but I would definitely recommend the Fireside Restaurant. It was the saving grace for our weekend.
I would say that charging $31 for three scallops as a main entree is a bit over the top. They were tasty and well prepared, but they were also too expensive. The salad and dessert were both also good, and the service was commendable.
There aren't a lot of options fine dining options to eat nearby Port Ludlow, and we were pleased this was well prepared food in a lovely marina setting.
We were guests at the hotel. We very pleased with the service and food
Very lovely, great service and great food
We brought my family from Pennsylvania down to the Fireside. Salmon and halibut dinners were fantastic. Husband had steak dinner which was also good. Waitress was wonderful.
Food was great. Portion size left something to be desired. We had scallops and received 3 for 31 a plate. Prior to getting our plates, I made a joke to my wife: As long as it is not less than the one time we stayed at Doe Bay, we should be fine. At Doe Bay, we were left hungry with 5 scallops per plate. If you're not concerned with being hungry after, go for the taste. Otherwise, go somewhere else.
Wonderful food, People and Service. One of my favorite restaurants to dine for breakfast, lunch and dinner!
Gorgeous marina/water/Olympic Mountain View. We sat outside on the “porch”. Delicious local food, well prepared and plated.
We visit Port Ludlow about every other year and always enjoy dining at Fireside. The waitstaff is knowledgeable and friendly. We will be back
The service was excellent. Paula, our server was a sweetheart. She was personable and attentive. The food was actually quite good. However, the portions we were served were not consistent with the high price of the meal. For example, my wife ordered the scallops. She was served 3 scallops and although they were big, they certainly did not warrant the high price.
The Fireside has become one of our favorite romantic spots to eat. Ask to sit by the fireplace or out on their glorious deck overlooking the harbor. They have a generous and varied happy hour menu and the regular menu always offers something for everyone in your party. Kids are welcome and the menu for the littles is also generous. They have a FT sommelier and an EXTENSIVE wine list. You seriously cannot go wrong!
We’ve been here twice and both times we’ve had great food and wonderful service. We will be back again soon.
Staff was friendly and personable! Scallop entree was one of the best things I’ve ever eaten! It was our One Year Anniversary dinner and they all made sure we had a great time! Will definitely be back for future anniversaries!
We had a reservation, but it still took more than an hour to get our food. When it arrived it was partially cold. There were very few options for a vegetarian. The prices were quite high for what we were served. Overall it was a bit disappointing. The location is good.
Food is outstanding. View is breathtaking.
This is our special occasion go to restaurant. Chef Dan takes care with every little detail of the meal, it is always a pleasure to dine at the Fireside. Ask your server for recommendations if you are torn between multiple dishes. He recommended a dish with morel mushrooms because their season is so short they are not available often. Also excellent mixed drinks and extensive wine selection. When we eat here, it's like taking a mini vacation. Reservations recommended as they fill up.
Food was outstanding and wait staff extremely personable... thanks again for the wonderful solstice dinner
Always excellent food. The Fireside never disappoints. Extensive wine list, with lots of great options to complement your meal.
Wonderful food and especially good service charming.
The blade steak was excellent. It was as tender as prime rib and very flavorful. Platings were beautiful. Absolutely LOVED the French Toast for Sunday Brunch. My wife (a french toast connoisseur) says it is hands down the best she has ever had!
Ava was a terrific server! Love the Fireside as it never disappoints!
The Fireside Restaurant cooks their steaks excellently. Very tasty and cooked as ordered.
Terrific birthday dinner. Great atmosphere on the waterfront in Port Ludlow.
You never go wrong here. We continue to have great experiences at the Fireside Restaurant in Port Ludlow.
We've gone for lunch several times but went for dinner this time. The menu was locally sourced, as advertised, with a variety of options. I had the sturgeon and it was perfectly prepared. Very much enjoyed the tapenade served with the bread but the bread could be better. Our server was very attentive.
Incredible meal. Amazing service. We love coming here. We had dinner and breakfast. So good both times.
Some of the highest quality fare on the peninsula. Our waitress was attentive without being overbearing. Expect to spend a premium amount. Atmosphere was quiet and quaint. Overall a romantic evening and will return.
This place is fantastic. Small but very well put together, the staff are fantastic, amazing food and drinks, even the prices were fantastic. Seriously, go here.
We have come back year after year for a romantic weekend getaway. The restaurant never disappoints! This year we were even in a crazy snow storm that Port Ludlow rarely experiences but yet the resort and restaurant were fully staffed and still gave their high level of service and excellent culinary experience. Thank you!
Much better than last time Food service prices and selection were great. There is NO where else to eat in the area so we genuinely want this place to do well. We ate in the dining room for dinner and had great food attentive service and accommodated a dietary concern with no issue at all. A lot of places will do that but there is an eye roll lol. This was great. We also got a to go order to have in our room and it was great. Much improved since our last trip.
Our server, Thuy, was wonderful! We thoroughly enjoyed our evening.
One of my all time favorite places to be. The food, wine and atmosphere are always top notch.
Had an amazing dinner with my friend for her birthday.
We had an enjoyable evening at the Fireside Restaurant. Although the food was very good, what we will remember most is the excellent service. At a time when many restaurants keep as little staff as possible, The Fireside Restaurant was well staffed by friendly and attentive professionals. The Restaurant is a beautiful and is situated in a beautiful marina. We will be going back often.
40th Wedding Anniversary celebration. Water view table overlooking the marina at Port Ludlow. Food was fabulous. Service was thoughtfully attentive.
Food was delightfully fantastic, service was good, atmosphere was relaxing. We enjoyed several meals there!
Beautiful spot, waterfront views, great food and service.
Excellent food! We had breakfast and dinner at the restaurant and both were completely amazing. I would highly recommend it.
I can not even begin to describe how delicious the food is. We stayed at the adjoining Inn so we ate several meals there (including breakfast) and they did not disappoint. Even the butter they brought out with the bread was other-worldly. Everything is made from local ingredients and the menu is always changing. If you love excellent food then this is worth the drive and the money. We are not drinkers but the wine list they brought out was the size of a small novel so I am sure a wine lover would find something spectacular inside.
We went there for our wedding anniversary. The food was awesome! We will definitely be going back!
