Food was excellent, as it always is. I've yet to order an item that wasn't prepared well, flavorful and had a good presentation. Service is always good too.

Wow! This was my second time to Bonfyre and it was wonder! I had the half chicken with Brussels sprouts and bonfyre mash. SOOO GOOD. The rest of our party had steaks. All were delicious in flavor and cooked to perfection. Our server, Kevin, was VERY friendly and professional. He even helped my BF secretly paid for dinner to treat our guests (my parents). My dad is very hard to please when it comes to steak and he was thrilled with his meal. Service was fast too! And everything was served HOT. This was the best meal and experience we’ve had dining out since COVID hit. Thank you Bonfyre!!!

I used Open Table to book my reservation and Bonfyre was right on with providing us a table in a quiet spot so my friend and I could have a nice visit. Kevin, our waiter, provided excellent service. Food was delicious and we will definitely be back.

Our waitress was incredible! We love coming to Bonfyre! The Maytag potato chips were INCREDIBLE!! They had melted cheese and an amazing cheese sauce on top. Everything was delicious!! The butternut squash soup is the best soup that I have ever had! It is always a wonderful experience at Bonfyre!

The food was way not worth the money to me. I got the Thai chicken flatbread and it was probably the worst thing I’d ever eaten. The bread seemed like it was from the freezer and had been warmed up the the microwave. The chicken had no seasoning and the vegetables looked exactly like a salad you would buy in a bag at the grocery store. It even had the peeled carrots on it. For a cheaper place I would find these acceptable but for the price it was just not worth it at all. The Thai sauce and peanut sauce was very minimal. There was no spice and hardly and flavor.

I was on a first date, so I REALLY appreciate that the employees were willing to let us eat out on the patio. I was MUCH more comfortable doing that during this pandemic. No one else wanted to eat on the patio since it was in the high 50's/low 60's, but I very much appreciate how willing they were to accommodate us. Service was top notch as always. I was disappointed that you did not have calamari available since it has been highly recommended to me by my son, but that means I will just need to make it back to your lovely establishment sometime soon.

My husband and I go to Bonfyre often for date night and we were thrilled that they have reopened. Their staff made us feel comfortable and were conscious and practicing social distancing and were wearing masks but not hyper about it as so many other restaurants are at this time. Food was good and portion sizes were perfect. Our martinis were a bit on the small side but overall it was a great evening!

The pot roast and butternut squash soup are both outstanding. The ahi tuna salad used to be a favorite and while good, not as good as it used to be. The service was generally solid, though water was not refilled during the meal. Items are on the slightly higher side but flavor makes up for that. Definitely recommend.

This was an excellent choice for us to celebrate some birthdays and an anniversary. We have eaten at Bonfyre several times before, and the quality of the dinners was as excellent. Our server, Ty, was friendly, helpful, available if needed, and prompt, without hovering over us (I hate that!).

We went out at the start of this difficult time of business closures during the Covid-19 pandemic, so the dining room was not as full as a usual Saturday night. However, there was still a decent amount of guests dining, and still the noise level was quite manageable.

This is a place I would recommend to anyone celebrating a special occasion or looking for a date night experience. The food is good, the menu has a nice selection without being overwhelming, and they change some of their menu items on a regular basis to acknowledge seasonal changes. I hope you get Ty as your server! He was the best.

Our latest visit was not as good as some we have had. We had table for 6, and they put is parallel to, and to the side and in front of the kitchen, so quite a lot of light glare in half of our eyes. My rotisserie chicken, unfortunately, was a bit overdone and therefore dry - I have had better there. Others in our group really liked the food, though.

We needed a quiet place to talk and Bonfyre was quiet and our waitstaff was attentive, but not intrusive. The food was good. We could have used a bit more light at our table -- it was cozy, but super dark.

I was not impressed with the meat trio plate. The seafood trio plate was great but would have been much better if the risotto was actually warm. A bit pricey for the quality of food in my opinion. The server we had was amazing.

We came to the restaurant because my 12 year old said she had been here before and it was amazing. The prices per meals were higher than we were wanting to spend but we did stay and I am very happy we did.

We ordered the Maytag Potato Chips and the Cheese Curds for appetizers. Both were incredible. Easily the best I have ever had on both.

The entrees ordered in our party were Grilled Shrimp, Shrimp Enchiladas, Pepperoni Pizza and the Seafood Cobb. Portions are very large and with the appetizers I took most of my salad home. All meals were thoroughly enjoyed.
