Our Story 

IT'S NOT JUST A BAR.. IT'S A COMMUNITY

The FirePlace is a little piece of history in the corner of Lake Fenton. 

We are right on Barnum Lake, giving our customers a scenic view while they enjoy a long list of beers, wines, & specialty drinks that go along with our robust menu.

The history of our bar goes way back & we aren't done making history yet! 

We've made it through a pandemic, several mandated closures, even outdoor winter dining.

Thankfully our customers & travelers were brave enough to take on the cold & keep us going. 

For that, we thank our customers & community.
