20 Minute Radius: Fireside Family Restaurant

Looking for a quality spot to get breakfast, lunch or dinner? Fireside Family Restaurant in Pitman may just be the place for you! Located just 10 minutes off of Rowan’s campus, this hidden gem is just off of Woodbury Road and has a homey atmosphere inside that offers a variety of dishes.

I transferred to Rowan last fall. During my first semester, a few of my friends and I would always try to find a local breakfast place to go to on Saturday mornings. After a bit of curiosity, I found Fireside through Google recommendations, so we decided to check it out.

As soon as you walk in, you’re immediately greeted with the warmest enthusiasm by the hostess. There are booths and tables for preference to sit at. The menu contains many options to choose from, which range from breakfast items such as bagels, pancakes, omelets and hash browns to lunch and dinner items such as burgers, pasta and steak.

Fireside Family Restaurant became my go-to place for breakfast every Saturday morning with my friends and we’ve been going back there ever since my first semester. This past weekend, I was there.

I got an order of French toast that came with a choice of eggs and meat. I chose my eggs over easy and ordered sausage and bacon for the meat. It’s definitely a delicious meal that I highly recommend to get here. When I’m not ordering that, I like to get a breakfast sandwich in the form of a sausage, egg, cheese and bacon sandwich on a plain toasted bagel with a side of hash browns.

The best part about Fireside is the student discount! If you bring a student I.D. you get 10% of your bill. 

Fireside Family Restaurant is open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Be sure to check it out if you’re in the area!
