Whenever we are in Minneapolis, we make sure we are able to eat here at least five times. Although business brings us here, this pizza alone would be a good enough draw. Thin crust pizza with real flavor. Perfect portions and with ample toppings.

I love this place! This is a smaller place that specializes in pizza and I would recommend for anyone to go here. Their pizza sauce has a nice spice to it and I love their sausage. Go there!

If there is any thing that makes me mad it is when the wait person takes your money when you pay the bill and assumes the change is her tip. Thirty two dollar bill for lousy pizza does not call for a eight dollar tip. I got my change back

I'm a thin crust cut in squares kinda guy and thought that's how this place did the pizza. Next time that is how I will order it.

The sandwiches though are greasy, over priced things that are not worth having on the menu. Why do I say

My husband loves the pizza from this place but it is only good if you eat it there. It is not good when you bring it home because it is no longer piping hot. We went in last night with our two grandchildren and daughter. We were a party of

After reading all of these positive reviews about the place and it's pizza I thought I'd stray from my usual spot (LHP) and give it a try.

On one hand, the thin crust was good, but on the other hand, speaking of value for dollar: the $18.00 large three topping I got was of very average quality. The sauce was pretty indistinct, the toppings weren't plentiful, and in comparison with Lake Harriet Pizza the same $18.00 there would have got me a pizza with DOUBLE the mass AND it would have been great! The "large" pizza I got from Fireside fed two people, barely, where LHP's large does 3-4 people no problem. I am not going back to Fireside, especially when it's a 45 min round trip from my house. It's too darn bad there's a complete lack of good pies in the NW 'burbs...

Cons: Not worth the money IMO

I called for a delivery order and was informed I lived a block and half outside their delivery territory. The order taker said, "just a second, let me see if i can convince the driver to go there." After a few minutes another woman came on the phone and said, "we'll make this delivery but going forward you're outside our terrirotory and won't". I completely felt as if I was hindering their operation by requiring the driver to travel an extra block and a half. The arrogance was just overwhelming coming from the other end of the line as if this is they are the only show in town. It reminded me of the soup incident from Seinfeld. Unbelievable. I called Davanni's (who is two blocks from Fireside) and they were happy to take my order and deliver it.. I'm sure Fireside has decent food but I'll never know.

I too have been going there maybe 12+ times a year, since first introduced to it by a date that lived nearby. She lasted a few months, the restaurant forever. I've taken or gone with numerous groups, many kid's sports teams, my own family which still all love to go, and guests - most of whom become customers themselves. At least when we go, Fireside is often crowded. Decor has not changed much but well kept-up, sort of like the charming restaurants we americans love to frequent when visiting europe. Ownership changed, and I missed the Millers consistency because at first I think the Thompson's changed some things like most people trying to "improve" - at least as respects to what we always order: Pizza. But that quickly went back to matching the customer preferences - the highly successful old standby items. There is only one crust, thin and fantastic. Only 2 sizes and really then after 9PM you get large for the price of small anyway. The same great sauce and a large selection of toppings. Pepperoni is not a large arrangement of sliced spiced sausages plunked down on top of a cheese pizza - Fireside's is just true taste like we order in Italy. It does not have excessive cheese unless you ask for it. Beers are good. Kid's like their tap rootbeer. We often see acquaintences we know in there doing the same thing we are, Having a good meal out. In all those years I only lived in their delivery area about 4 years. Even though many others deliver where we live, we make the 30 minute round trip to pick-up Fireside's pizza about half-the-time. It simply tastes better - and has no stomach-unsetling aftertaste like many of the fastfood pizza brands. I can't imagine the the one bad review written here - are you sure you went to the same place? It doesn't sound like it. Maybe the bar down the street?

Pros: Consistent, Focused, Great food & clean family atmosphere

Cons: It's not glitzy, trendy, fashionable, or expensive

I have a different opinion than Mr. Hexum's review. I've been going to Fireside Pizza 3-4 times a month for about 40 years -- back to the days when the Miller's owned the restaurant. They have never included salads free of charge with their pizzas nor have I noticed that the Thompson's have changed their recipes or how they prepare their food. He is incorrect in the statements of his review. I really dislike when I see someone write a negative review for a great restaurant that provides a wonderful value. In the world we live in with rising prices, it's all-about-me mentality, and rude people, Fireside still stands out as a family restaurant with great service, prices, wonderful value, and "small town" atmosphere. What a wonderful asset to Richfield that we have a place we can still afford to take our families to. If Mr. Nexum would like more sauce on his pizza or would like the cheese browned a bit more, he should ask for it that way. I have enjoyed Fireside for many years and will continue to frequent it and tell my friends how wonderful it is.

Get a life. One guess tells me the guy owns a competitive pizza business and wants to slam Fireside. Good luck to him -- there is a good reason Fireside has been in business for almost 50 years. They have great pizza priced right.

When Thompson's took over, they stuck to the original formula for awhile, but that has all been changing. Example: we always had dinner salads with our pizzas. The last time we were there they charged full (a la carte) price for salad. When I asked why they said it was because we didn't buy 'entrees". I said we had pizzas and we've always been charged a lower salad price with pizza. They argued about it and told me that it's never been that way. I've been coming there at least once a month for about forty years and it's always been that way. I've been eating at Fireside since before any of them were born and I live a few doors from Mrs. Miller who used to own the place. Finally, they admitted to me that they'd recently changed their policy, but didn't offer to give me the salads at the reduced price as most restaurants would to maintain good customer relations. They were actually nasty about it. Also, I've noticed that there isn't as much tomato sauce on the pizza nor is it cooked as well (browned on top) as it used to be. When I had spaghetti awhile back it wasn't well seasoned. If they don't make enough money on the pizza to give salads at a reduced amount, they should increase the price of the pizza. Cutting corners will only cut customers in the long run. I want a salad with my pizza but I'm unwilling to pay several dollars for a little bowl of iceberg lettuce. When restaurants cut back on ingredients to save money, people go elsewhere to get what they want. When a restaurant has a successful formula they should not change it even if it means raising prices as changing will only cause them to lose customers. They should re-think this policy.

Pros: Good, old neighborhood place, not a chain.

Cons: Tight parking but if you live in neighborhood it's O.K.

ordered for delivery and the order came incorrect. when i called the next day the owner or manager insisted the error was mine and was rude. i won't spend my money where my business is not valued. how can you be in a customer service business while lacking basic communication skills.

We love the pizza! The best thin crust in town. Recommend getting it cut in squares for a fun treat.
The only problem is they call themselves family friendly but they have no changing table. This is a huge problem in my eyes.

We like the thin crust and it is the best pizza outside of S. Minneapolis. They do need to get a website, that would make ordering take out much easier.

My husband and I moved to Richfield about 6 months ago and have become regulars at Fireside. The pizza has a thin crispy crust and the ingredients are mouth watering. It has become my favorite pizza around here. We usually get out of there w/ a bill around $20-25 depending on drinks. The only other thing I have had there besides the pizza is the garlic/cheese bread and the side salad. Both were great as well. I'm want to try some other dishes but can never say no to the pizza!

Best thin-crust pizza in town. Don't order more than 3 toppings. Melts in your mouth. Good live jazz Mondays and Wednesdays. No cover, but leave a tip. Romantic private booths. Skip the house wine, but a step up is good, drinkable "pizza wine." Tap beer, bottle beer available, but go for the pizza. Friendly service. Low key. There's also a sports theme featuring nationally know but home grown hockey and golf pros. And each one has a connection to the place. If you're a Richfield or Southwest Minneapolis native, this is home. If not, welcome to the neighborhood.

The interesting trees and lights makes for a casual dining experience. The pizza is rather pricey but makes up for in taste. They have fresh ingredients that makes the flavor of the pizza pop. The service is always prompt and polite. The quaint little restaurant has been in the same place for years. I have been going there since I was 3 and I am now 24! The other selections on the menu never disappoints. Try them all.
