    I absolutely love Fireplace Inn especially being a Purdue Alum. Our waiter was extremely accommodating and he really seems to love his job. I would recommend this place simply because of him. Also it helps to make a reservation so you have a table and don’t have to stand during busy times.

    Ribs were better than ever. Grecian chicken was outstanding. Fun atmosphere with varied menu at affordable prices. Great place to watch games.

    The entire staff was warm, very helpful, and very friendly, especially having to work on the holiday. My grandfather has fond memories of that restaurant when he used to bring my Nana. My mother had a question about some lettering on the wall and the waiter (who smelled amazing) took the time to explain the history of the restaurant answering my Mom's question and resonating with my GrandDad. Love that the game was on so many tvs. Great steak. I'll be back.

    We went on Mother's Day for "brunch". Not 1 employee told my wife Happy Mother's Day - we were with our 2 year old daughter. Ordered mimosa and bloody Mary. Bloody Mary tasted good but had sad looking garnish on it. The garnish did not look fresh at all. Mimosa came in a wine glass filled half the way up. Looked low value. Tasted just ok. The brunch menu had nothing BBQ about it even though this is a Q joint. The menu was a raggedy piece of paper with lopsided printing. We skipped it and went for the main menu. Ordered 2 mediocre sandwiches. Uninspired food on rough looking old plates. My wife took 3 bites, I ate half. Tables looked beat up. I asked my wife if she wanted to leave and go somewhere else once the imposter mimosa showed up but she decided we should stay. A decision she later regretted. She's too nice sometimes. I should have saved us from this misery. We won't ever be back to this place... can't pay us to do so.

    We made reservations for a family dinner which we believed would be in the dining room. They sat us in the bar area with an underaged child. We were accosted at the door and then the server argued with me about what I ordered. The entire table agreed that she did get the order wrong. After not taking our drink order, we requested water. Never came back for refills until we were practically finished with dinner.

    It was a nice restaurant to go to for a family dinner after my daughter’s college graduation. The food and service was great. It was a nice atmosphere. I’m glad I made a reservation but it got quickly crowded (on Thursday night). My one and only issue was the valet parking. Like open table said, they have it but it is 1/2 block down in front of another restaurant. That caused some confusion and left my elderly father driving around looking for a parking spot. The employee is in front of the building was clueless. I finally asked the hostess and explained where it was and to ask for a special ticket to be validated. All in all it was a good night.
