  • "My wife and I went to Woodfire Grille to celebrate our 12th wedding anniversary. Neither of us had ever been there before. The atmosphere of the restaurant was perfect, our waitress was very friendly and helpful, and the food was outstanding. The main course, drinks, and dessert all were excellent. It was one of the best dining experiences that we have ever had, and made for a great night out to celebrate our anniversary!"

    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "The food and service were wonderful. My only complaint would be the fact that everything is al-a-carte and there were no prices on the menu. It seems as though you're trying to trick people into paying top dollar for the unknown."

  • "I believe that our waitress was Jennifer and we had one other that waited on my group of 250 and they did an outstanding job.... Hope to have them again as my waitresses.. Thanks for make my meeting that much better. Casey"

  • "My wife and I had our 10th Anniversary dinner here. We knew it would be expensive, but decided to treat ourselves. We both had the 8 oz filet - best decision. Steak melted in our mouths. Baked potato (extra $6) was huge and delicious. If you have a group of wine drinkers, you're sure to find a good deal. They had a red blend that sounded really good (based on the tasting notes) on special for only $20 (bottle). But, since my wife doesn't like wine (and you can't take the bottle with you - unless you want it delivered to the bar in the casino) we passed. They had a pretty good selection of wines by the glass, though. The only problem we had, which wasn't really a problem, was that the creme brulee we had for dessert was a little burnt."

  • "We were celebrating my wife's 30th birthday party and we made a reservation at the Woodfire Grille at Diamond Jo's Casino. The food was great! We mainly had prime rib, filet, and crab legs, all of which were fantastic. They let us bring in some cupcakes for dessert, which was nice. We had one server for our group and she did a wonderful job. Overall, we all had a great dining experience."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Over all was pleased, although main dishes came out cool to warm. They corrected the problem with new dishes served at a much better temp for eating. I will say the lobster mac was awesome, along with e French onion soup."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Atmosphere was very nice! Liked the look and feel of the restaurant. However, waited over an hour to get our food from when we ordered it. Had the king cut prime rib; it was good, but was almost half fat and gristle. For those prices you expect a good cut of meat. Overall I wouldn't give the restaurant a high ranking because I was expecting more from this place."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "While the cooks knew their job, for a restaurant of this price range you also expect a degree of service which was definitely lacking this Saturday evening. It was lacking to the degree where it effected the tone of this special event."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Even though it was a busy night, we were seated two minutes before our registration time. We had a wonderful evening and the service and food were awesome. This restaurant is very expensive however compared to other restaurants in the area, very over priced...but would go back again!"

  • "This crew is consistently working together, time after time, to greet, prepare, and serve a fantastic experience. The only differences in visits have been in the welcomed, seasonal changes in the specials and the anticipation of variations of a more local menu. Ambiance, service, and food are all first class. Love knowing where my food comes from and how far it had to travel to get to my plate. Tipping my hat to the team!"

  • "The food was really good, I thought the price you paid and the amount of actual food you got wasn't the best. You don't get any kind of potato its all separate and for the price of the meat was high."

  • "We made a reservation for New Year's Eve, got right in when we arrived. Server was a little slow to get to the table, but they were fairly busy, even at 9:00 when we were there. We shared a bottle of wine and ordered appetizers. The food came out in a reasonable amount of time and everything was delicious. It was a wonderful dining experience, although slightly higher priced than i usually can afford. This was a special occasion. We will definitely be going back sometime in the future."

    Dined on 12/6/2013
  • "Our main meals: Pork Chop, Bacon wrapped Pork tenderloin and new York strip were delicious as well as the lobster mac and cheese and our chop salads.. My Lobster came as 2 very small lobsters which I could barely cut out of their shells with a sharp knife. It tasted fine, but was a struggle getting out of their shells. In a fine restaurant I would think you would get one large appealing lobster already cut from the shell simply lying in the shell for appearance. Thank you."

She brought us our wine and ahead waited for us to order while we visited. She was wonderful. The food came out quickly and was delicious. Tory let us visit after we ate some more. Sh was incredible . hands for making our dining experience so enjoyable. Not rushing us but guiding us to keep moving. We had a lot of catching up. And a lot of laughing to do. So once.

  • "This is a great restaurant for this area. The atmosphere and noise level is perfect. Overall the food was good. I had Halibut that was slightly overcooked. There is a fine line with Halibut so I will give them another chance. The other 3 people had great meals. The Bananas Foster was to die for."
