"Not the quiet dining experience described. Basically a bar that services food. Recently renovated. No fireplace. Very few dining tables. Bars in every section."

"Visited after about two years. We always loved the place and the ribs are the best. The ribs are still good but the have completely revamped to a sports bar format. The place is load and uncomfortable.
This is no longer a great place for a rib dinner but just another sports bar with ribs.
We on't go back.

"We came here on a whim because it was quick seating and the menu seemed good enough. And that's exactly what we got. Good enough. I had a turkey burger with guac that was tasty but nothing spectacular. It just got the job done. The best part was probably when my friend asked about a glass of Basil Hayden's whiskey for $11.50 and made sure it was a good pour and not just a shot - he was assured by the waiter that it would be worth it and the waiter came through with an excellent pour that was well worth the price tag.
TL;DR: Read the title."

"Poor service. Half the food in our party was good. Expected salad and appetizers before the meal. Seemed that they had been forgotten. Drinks were empty for too long. Water not refilled even when requested.
Fireplace up north was
what we were looking for.

"Used to be a warm, cozy place-good first date site. (Hubby and I had first date there years ago.)
Now just another average sports bar with TVs covering every sq inch of wall. They even got rid of their fireplace, and beef ribs. Sad. Won't be going back.

"The ribs are excellent so is the creamy garlic dressing for the salad. Tortilla soup was nice and thick and had good flavor. It was a Sunday night so it was quiet but we had a table of 8 with no waiting and our food came promptly. Would go back!"

"We requested a balcony table when making the reservation, got that, and when we arrived we asked that Alex be our waiter, as he'd served us before, and did well. Anyway, the hostess accommodated us on both requests without hesitation, and with a genuine smile. We live in the NW suburbs, so it's not a near destination, but the drive was worth it, as the service was par excellence, Alex's seeming specialty, the food superb and the ambiance comforting, which all made for a Merry Christmas."

"After some initial confusion about which way to enter and where to go, my family of four was seated. Service was slow. We were told it was because the kitchen was overbooked with take out orders. Why should this affect my more expensive dining in option? I booked this restaurant based on the reviews..sounded like a fun spot to have Christmas dinner. Was I ever wrong. I ordered the twice baked potato, then later told they were out. A few minutes later, the table next to us had baked potatoes! How does this happen? Not good planning. I had the cottage fries instead, which were dry, cold and tasteless. The filet I had was way too charred on the outside which dried it up as well. Took forever to get our check, We could have easily walked out without paying and nobody would have even noticed. Our server finally only came to collect the payment after being flagged down. Really put a damper on our otherwise good day."

"The food was just ok. Nothing spectacular, not bad. The salad arrived before the appetizer, which was odd considering the app was melted cheese on bread. My burger was extremely well done, which would be better than underdone. But still tasted a little burned."

"We just moved to the area and decided to try out a local place. When we arrived, half of it was shut off as they were renovating. It was fine but would be interested to see what it is like when its finished. Its bit like an english pub on with lots of TV's, I mean lots of TV's!!
The food was nice actually. Good bbq items and the chips (fries) were lovely. Quite reasonably priced too. It's a casual, met for a drink, cheap night out kind of place. Not fancy. But did the job.
Once's it's all finished I will go back."

"The Fireplace Inn has a great atmosphere , great food and great employees . we had some of the best chicken wings . The bonless rib sands are the best around. The place was packed yet service was great. The owners should be proud of the resturant they have. I will always come back to the Firepace Inn. The BBQ is outstanding . The new adition looks great ,cant wait for that to open."

"Ribs were great! Very noisey though and not really fit for a family to have a night out. The waiter was not very attentive and seemed to be in over his head for a Saturday night. Dessert came around and we were told that their noteable dessert (a towering chocolate cake) was old and therefore they could not sell it for the evening."

"Haven't been up to Chicago in a many years, very pleased with the changes. I can't give a true review because I haven't experienced other diners here. I definitely recommend the ribs. The steak was average and the side dishes were poor. Wait staff and atmosphere were excellent! We arrived here at 8pm with reservations and many tables were open. The place came alive around 9:30pm. Probably will not come back here for a date night, but will come back for a out with friends night."
