    our dinners were out standing ribs, chicken, shrimp all prepared to perfection. Wedge salad with blue cheese could have made a meal jus on that, the pot-roast soup was very hardy.

    Hadn't been here in a couple years, some new menu items (too many with kale), however I did enjoy a couple additions. Prices have increased considerably in 2 years. Still very loud no matter where you're seated, serve good/adequate, however we kind of got impression perhaps the server wished they were doing someting else.

    Like the title says the food was delicious (twice baked potato almost made me cry it was so good), the price was reasonable in comparison to other steak places, our wait person always had our drinks filled and had a cheery attitude. She had no problems explaining the fancy items on the menu we had never heard of. Dessert was limited but good.

    We live in the neighborhood and what a great asset to have such a nice restaurant so close. Every time we go someone in our party orders the lobster ravioli, which is sooo good. Our waitress was attentive and friendly. I love the little desserts to complete the meal. We don't go often but we always have a good time.

    The food is always delicious, and the menu is varied to suit many different tastes and appetites. The service was good except for one annoyance that we find in almost every restaurant: that the wait staff clears the table as each person finishes. This is extremely impolite and causes the slower eaters to feel that they must rush to finish. Also, it would be nice to have a basket of bread brought to the table as customers are having their drinks and conversation before eating the big meal.

    I have been time Bonfyre several times and had great meals and services. This last time the scallops were extremely salty as if bathed in a saline solution. My husband ordered the prime rib but instead was served a N.Y. strip. Not acceptable food and service for the price.

    Everyone in our group was served a beautiful plate. The waiter we had seemed very excited about the food and worked to be very accommodating. He was able to work with young and old at our table. The service was great. We had a guest that had to leave early and he was very helpful with boxing up the food for her. The fish was properly cooked and the special sauces and accompanying vegetables were great. Even the cheese pizza was a special treat on flatbread for our youngest guest.

    Bonfyre offers excellent menu options and an attractive atmosphere. The only problems I had were parking and staying within a time constraint. I didn't quite make it through my meal in 40 minutes allowing me to return to work within my allotted hour. And this restaurant is busy during lunch so I will make adjustments on future visits. I plan to return for the varied and exciting menu options and the pleasant dining experience overall.

    We have a tendency to eat here often and my husband and I have usually been very happy. My husband has to avoid food with onion, including onion powder and salt, and the Bonfyre has always bent over backward to help. Yet it appears almost all their sauces have onion, which greatly limits what he can order. I do not like salty foods but had a problem with the Lobster Ravioli previously and this time found the Mort's Pot Roast was too salty for me too. The menu has changed, becoming more seasonal, and I miss the starter pork quesadilla, which I prefer ordering for my entrée as it's just the right size for me.

    Staff was friendly, service was excellent, and the food very good! Met a colleague there for dinner on an Sunday evening and it was quiet though a little dark inside. I ordered the butternut squash soup which was very good(on the sweet side so be advised) and the Kale salad with salmon. That was very good as well. My colleague ordered the chicken parmesan which he said was excellent. All around this was a great choice for dinner! Our waitress, Amber, was attentive but respected our privacy and conversation. She was very knowledgeable about the menu and the food.

    Went to Bonfyre on a first date. In short, it was a hit, due in no small part to the nice the physical decor of the restaurant, the great service, excellent food and romantic ambiance. The only criticism I had is that none of the fireplaces were lit, which undoubtedly would have upped the decor/romance aspect. This, of course, is likely due to factors I'm not taking into account- i.e. too much heat when on, too costly to have lit year-round. However, it would be an added element not shared by many of the restaurant's competitors. There is a great fireplace in the middle of one of the main dining areas. Why not use it? Other than that relatively minor 'shortfall', Bonfyre is a great spot for any occasion, especially a romantic dinner.

    We had one of your booths for our Anniversary, it was perfect. Our server I believe was Amber, she was wonderful! Our meal was superb!! The staff at the reservation desk were also upbeat, very kind, and made us feel welcome when we arrived, and when we left. We will definitely be back very soon with our extended family. My husband called this a 5 star restaurant, and it is. Thank you for making our special day even more special for us.

    Herbed chicken was succulent and the ribs tender and tangy. I especially like the daily special 'martini' for $5...strawberry basil was excellent and the delicious cheesecake in a shot glass for $2.50. Just the right amount of sweet at the end of a meal. Parking can sometimes be a bit problematic, but got lucky this time and scored a spot near the door. Noise level can be a little high, but it adds to the energy level. Have been here before and will certainly return.

    Having taken evening meals at Bonfyre many times, Saturday morning we made a snap decision to try the brunch menu. We were not disappointed, finding a wide selection of well prepared entrees. By 11:00 AM there were several open booths, our preferred section of the restaurant. Pricing was very reasonable for the quality, service, and unique breakfast items. We would have spent the same at a packake house were it not for the very nice 32-oz Bloody Mary we shared!

    My husband and I eat at the Bonfyre American Grille often when we are hungry for tasty seafood and have something to celebrate...or not. We had Sunday dinner here after a scorching day seeing a play in Spring Green. The coolness of the restaurant was almost too cool, but a welcome change from outside. There were 4 of us ordering the pot roast, salmon and risotto, seafood trio and the tenderloin. Everyone was pleased, and the wedge salad, Caesar salad and squash soup were a great start. We had to request bread and that was served promptly. One at our table has an onion allergy and was attended well, though missed being able to have any of the sauces or even the Caesar salad. We were too full for dessert, but our wine did the trick.

    I've been to bonfyre many times, and the food is always fantastic. I've never had a bad experience. However, this time I was a little disappointed with the service we received. Waiting for the last of our party to arrive, we sat at the bar and had a beer. The bartender was super rude! I don't know if he was having a bad night or what, but the three of us three of us all agreed he had an attitude. Our waiter I would classify as sufficient, but he certainly didn't win any prizes for his warmth. He seemed slightly annoyed the whole time. Hopefully it was just an off night for these two guys... With that said, our food was delicious as always. Just wish we would have been treated like our business was appreciated and not a nuisance.

    We were promptly shown to our table and wait staff attentive. Our server was relaxed and did not give out the robotic programed spiel detailing specials and all that. We were served our salad and beverage's within 10 mins. Entre right after salad plates were removed. I had steak twice baked and green beans. Steak was cooked perfect. A reg baked potato would have been a better choice as the twice baked was too rich and a little on the greasy side. Beans were crunchy and well flavored. Date had shrimp with rice and green beans. Shrimp were sweet and fresh. I would visit again and try other dishes.
