The Fireside Inn

The Fireside Inn is the perfect combination of vintage charm and modern allure. The recently reopened Central New York favorite from days past has managed to do what few have done, they have perfectly merged the past with the present. The interior is bright, clean, and modern with nods to the past including several fireplaces and a baby grand piano. This trend is also apparent in each dish they serve with new approaches to classic favorites.  The Fireside Inn is located at 2347 West Genesee Rd, Route 370 in Baldwinsville. The Lounge is open daily and they offer a phenomenal prime rib buffet beginning at 5 pm on Thursday nights.

The Fireside Inn is the ideal location to host your upcoming event. Your guests will love the relaxing atmosphere, the attentive staff, and most of all the mouthwatering cuisine.

To get a taste of what The Fireside Inn is all about, my husband and I went to the prime rib buffet on an unseasonably warm Thursday night. We were immediately greeted by our friendly server, Cindy, who went above and beyond to take care of us while we dined. The atmosphere was warm and inviting, the perfect place for a date night or even a family gathering. The buffet had tons of fantastic options, from peel and eat shrimp to a baked potato bar, maple roasted salmon and of course a melt-in-your-mouth prime rib carving station. They also have a dessert table that is sure to satisfy any sweet tooth. The maple salmon was incredible and the prime rib was truly mouthwatering. The salad bar was also remarkable with tons of toppings including crumbly-blue, candied nuts, Kalamata olives, roasted red peppers, and artichoke hearts.  I would absolutely recommend this buffet to everyone!

The Upper Room is well lit and spacious enough for most any occasion.
