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

Great variety for Sunday Brunch. Chef carved corned beef and turkey were highlights. A peach smoothie was a nice surprise to start.

My wife and I were here to see Mamma Mia which was a very delightful show. The novelty of seeing a very successful Broadway show in small theater in a cornfield in WI was quite enticing. Something were not gonna miss. The show included a 5-course dinner that fell short of interesting. The fare included a choice of a local... More

We like coming here on Friday night for fish. It is reasonably priced and you can have your choice of fried or steamed cod with a wonderful peppercorn sauce. The potato pancakes are also very good. If you make reservations for 8:00 you also get a delicious dessert with your meal. They are also very good about setting up large... More

The Fireside has wonderful food and in my opinion one of the best fish frys around! Great place to celebrate special moments with family and friends! Plenty of room for any size group! The theatre in the round is a unique musical experience and the gift shops are a great place to find special gifts for that special person.

To start this review, let me give my usual caveat schtick......I do not ask nor do I receive anything of value by any place I choose to review (or, not review). I do not inform anyone that I like to write for Trip Advisor - I want to be treated like everyone else dining in a place. I do not... More

THE FOOD WAS WONDERFUL and the performance was superb. Went with family to see the Christmas program, what a delight. A plus was the wait person we had at the Fireside.

We had the buffet tonight before the show. Had a good selection of food and it was quite tasty. The line moved quickly so it didn't take long to get served. Our waitress was good and got our bread basket and salad to a quickly. Our drinks were also served fast. Will return here again.
