Gerald Whitt started Fireplace Restaurant in 1974 in a 100 year old log cabin that was known as the Hayes House. Folks come from miles around to eat his fresh Seafood and Steaks, The Fireplace had the finest salad bar in the Asheville area, which consisted of all fresh-cut vegetables and homemade dressings. 

In 1984, The Fireplace moved to its present location at the corner of Baird's Cove Road , with a larger restaurant and an expanded menu to accommodate and please a growing crowd of diners.

Today, The Fireplace enjoys a wide variety of diners; not only the local folks, but people from throughout the country. The present menu has items to satisfy all ages.

The Whitt Family and Staff hope you enjoy your dining experience and return often.
