While the food was good, many things were left to be desired. For example, the decorating is quite scary. Filled with taxidermy from the 70's...Everything has an inch layer of dust. Overall the atmosphere was dark...Dark wood paneling and dark green curtains that are as old as the building itself. As for the food..Don't expect anything fancy. Steaks are good... More

Good place to eat. Right next to the country meadows inn. Little spendy for a small town restaurant but the food is very good.

The place seemed to be popular restaurant with locals, slightly dressed up. We came with our casual travelling clothes, which was ok as well. Our burgers were ok, but nothing special. I would go again and try something different next time.

Had a great bacon cheeseburger with french fries. Service was prompt and food was very fast. Was pleasantly surprised to get free peanuts as an appetizer and they had some great beers on tab as well.

Hello, My husband and a few close friends came to the Fireside this past Saturday evening around 6:30 p.m. We waited for over an hour for our food and the waitress never said she was sorry. Instead she kept blaming the kitchen without taking any ownership. When the food did arrive, my meal was not part of the delivery. I... More

We were driving thru McGregor about a month ago and stopped for dinner. I ordered the BBQ ribs and my husband ordered the shrimp. He was going to get the deep fried but the waitress recommended the broiled. You can order anywhere from 2-5 and not knowing any better, he ordered 5! They were HUGE, bigger than the lobster tails...

We stopped in McGregor tonight on the way back to Brainerd. The food was good as usual except the soup and prime rib and prime rib were cold.... but WOW....the servers were TERRIBLE! Evidently a cook didn't show up and it threw everyone for a loop. We didn't get our loaf of bread, no butter for the potato. The hostess... More

On a Thursday my wife and I decided to go out for a really nice lunch, and after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor decided to drive the 31 miles to try the broiled shrimp that another person on here had described as wonderful. When we arrived, the lunch menu only listed a fried shrimp basket, but our wonderful waitress... More
