Definitely make a reservation. Very busy. Usually the steak is good but mine was way overdone. Server brought it back to the kitchen leaving me with my green beans and potato. Rest of the party was nearly done eating by the time the new steak arrived. Sadly lacked flavor.

Hi my party was annoyed with how you charged for drinks. If a drink is $10.00 charge $10.00. Don’t charge for ice. Find a better computer system. I know one person in the party won’t return. Food and service were great!

I had grilled shrimp with sticky rice and green beans. It was all amazing. Service was fast and friendly. I will most definitely be back. I am hearing impaired but I was seated in a big booth and I could hear my friend in our conversation. Very nice lunch.

Lunch at Bonfyre was the perfect restaurant to treat my brother to lunch on his birthday. The friendly service made our lunch time relaxing. We both enjoyed our very tasty lunches. Looking forward to my next lunch date at the outstanding Bonfyre Grill.

Our party of 6 (one child) were at Bonfyre Grilll on a Tuesday night - which was relatively empty. Most of us ordered the Filet Mignon with the sides being steamed veggies and twice baked potato.
Two of us had to send our steaks back to be remade because the steak was overcooked. What a circus this was! The waiter asked my husband if he would like his sides while his steak was remade which he took, however he didn't ask me the same question.
My replacement steak was brought out within 5 minutes and it looked and tasted like it had been sitting under a heat lamp for quite some time. It was thin and mostly cold as was the cold, over baked flat potato. I did not eat either.
Filet Mignon had been highly recommended. At $32.00 per plate, we certainly expected better.

Food was great. Service not the best. Our waiter never smiled once and was not around a whole lot. We weren’t aroundalotof other tables but it was still hard to hear ourselves. But I would still go back.

I and a friend ordered the Prime Rib. Both of us were served the toughest piece of prime rib that either of us had ever had before. Neither of us were able to eat even half.
Super Bummed!

I really enjoy visiting this establishment for birthday dinners & my family joins me. We have seen many people fall when walking from the step up seating area. This time was no exception & my brother fell twisting his ankle. I would appreciate neon taping on the step so someone else doesn’t get hurt worse. It is dark in there & I feel this would help greatly. Other than that the food & experience were wonderful

We visited on a snowy Friday evening upon arriving home from out of town. We called on short notice, but were able to relax and enjoy our meal after a long trip before heading to the grocery store. We got such pleasant and quick service and the food is reliably good, particularly the beef. We were so pleased that the restaurant was open and available to us that night.

The kitchen went above and beyond to make wallet gluten free for us, and it was the best wallet we ever had. No breading, but the flavor was out of this world; cooked to perfection. Server was very helpful and a joy to be around. Great place & great service.

Four of us enjoyed a warm Friday night dinner. Two of us ordered delicious ribs, while the other two had walleye, which was also quite tasty!
Our server was friendly and efficient.
It was a tad loud due to the popular bar, but we were still able to have easy conversation.
We will be back!

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Bonfyre. We had oysters and shrimp cocktail for an appetizer and they were delicious. The meal was perfectly timed and we had time for conversation before our entree’s arrived. My companion had the fish special and I had the wood fired mixed grill. We tried each others meal and they both were fantastic. A bit pricey, but the atmosphere, gourmet food and attentive service are worth it. We’ll be back!
