Had another wonderful meal at this great establishment! Our waiter Jonathan couldn’t have been more knowledgeable & pleasant. He made fantastic recommendations from the fried green tomatoes to the steak & even the exact description regarding the way to order the salmon for perfect cooking. The manager came to check on us as well during our dining experience. I have never been disappointed with my visits to this wonderful restaurant. We will definitely continue to return!

Excellent service and delicious entrees. Our favorite is the Shanghai Shrimp appetizer. Although there were children in restaurant they were strategically seated as not to disrupt any of the guests. Perfect service too. We even received a congrats anniversary card from the wait staff!

Our first time to ChillFire. It had been raining quite hard but had stopped for a moment when we arrived. This occasion was for my wifes' birthday. Our server, Brittany, was caught in the rain and was drying off so Cody started us off with drinks. Service was great. We enjoyed the classic rock on the overhead speakers. We had a great little corner table that was both a both and chairs. Drinks were so good we only ordered one each. appetizers were delicious and the main course was divine. We ordered dessert and the portions were so large we had to have them to go. Highly recommended. We arrived at opening and didn't need reservations but within an hour it was filling up. We look forward to dining there again.

Upon arriving we were asked if we wanted a patio seat, however with the hot temperature outside we opted to wait for inside seating. The hostess gave us a table in their private seating (for large groups) area. Too me this was just awkward because the only other people in this area was a family of 12. The area was cutoff from the main restaurant by a wall, we just felt too isolated as we don’t mind the noise from other customers. The food was okay, though my daughter’s steak was dry with no flavor, even though it was cooked to medium. Not sure how that can happen. Other than that the experience was fine, not amazing for the price.

It was one of the most amazing birthday dinners I’ve ever experienced. 8 of us chose different meals; all were incredibly delicious. Our server was excellent. I received a card signed by the employees and special desert. What a great team at Chillfire!

Exceeded expectations. This was our fourth visit. The only one that was too expensive was the Mother’s Day buffet. The sea bass was outstanding. Our waiter was excellent.

Your waitress should identify billing and party host. Always address the host with any questions first. The food was great, quiet area for conversion. Wasn't bothered or able to hear conversations from other seating areas. When leaving, noticed duel row seating areas at bar. I look forward to joing friends for sport events.

We love our "neighborhood" Chillfire for its consistency in what we want most: good food, great specials, wonderful service and a good wine and bar selection! We never leave dissatisfied and are always up for going back again and again!!

Went for Father's Day brunch. Good selection of breakfast and lunch items, including healthy salad bar, fruits and vegetables. Salmon was particularly good. Omelette was a disappointment (small and flavorless) as was the orange juice (all ice, minimal juice...watered down effect.).

Service was spot on. Food was excellent! We had the ribeye and steak medallions with baked potato hash and truffle fries. Delicious! Their dirty martinis with blue cheese stuffed olives were perfect. They also give you a very generous pour on a glass of wine. An overall great dining experience. We will be back!

Rather big and hollow so not a good atmosphere. I ordered the Caesar salad which was disappointing, old romaine leaves that were dark and tough dressing not really a Caesar dressing - my partner chose the fillet medali9ns that were ok but all in all not an experience worth traveling for.

My adult niece and I thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Chillfire. I’ve eaten here several other times when I’ve been in the area and have been equally pleased. Our server, Emily, was very attentive and accommodating. Food portions were appropriate and my tummy was happy with the ingredients. Worth the drive from LKN rather than suffering thru the 2.5 hour wait we were quoted at another local restaurant.

We brought friends from out of town and wanted to relax, have a bottle of wine with our appetizer, then have dinner. Good wine selection. Food and service was excellent. Server timed our appetizer, salads and meals so that we weren't rushed. From that perspective, it was great. Our complaint - a misbehaving, crying toddler - off and on during the first hour of our visit. Chillfire is not a 'family dining' establishment. Very disruptive and annoying when patronizing an upscale type of restaurant for a nice dinner. Even though we were seated across the room from them, it was aggravating to have to hold our conversation, several times, until the kid quieted down enough for us to continue. The adults with the child seemed not to care about the other diners. They should have been asked to take the child outside until calmed down. I see this as no different than asking a disruptive patron who has too much to drink to leave, which I do not believe they would have hesitated to do. We've dined here before, and will probably return, but I was disappointed on this visit.

While the buffet was good, it was definitely the end of the serving time. (We got there at 1:30.) The scrambles eggs were dry and over cooked and slightly burned ... and the french toast was similar l. Disappointing as we had friends from out of town.

We stopped coming here about 18 months ago because of the poor quality in food. We thought we would give it one more try, but our steaks were once again very disappointing for the price point. Not what you would expect with such a high price tag. All of our steaks were not cooked correctly and had a grainy texture. We won’t be back. So sad because it is a lovely restaurant and so close to our home.
