I found a short curly black hair in my burger, I believe I was very nice about it (I have long straight brown and blonde hair so I know it was not mine). I advised the server and she asked me if I wanted the whole plate redone, to which I said yes please. I even apologized, even though this was not my fault - so I do not know why. My husband and son continued to eat. The server came back and said she would bring me fries (since only taking 2 bites of my burger). I did not get fries or anything brought to me. By the time the burger was brought back out my family was done eating and I decided to get mine to go so we could get home. The bill came and they charged for the burger, not the biggest deal but also charged for a side of ranch and a side of honey mustard when I didn’t even get to use the ranch because I didn’t get my actual meal. I know that this sounds petty but I do not believe this was the way to keep customers. The music was annoyingly loud, the drinks were overpriced. Oh and they charged for cheese on my sons burger when I asked for everything off of it. So annoying. Won’t be going there ever again.

I brought my friends to Sunday Brunch who had never been there before for Mother’s Day. Very poor choice of restaurants. Three of us ordered pancakes and all of our bottom pancakes were burnt. They should not have come out of the kitchen like that. We could not eat that pancake. Waiter came back to table at end of meal. Water never refilled, didn’t ask if we wanted another cocktail. Very disappointed and I know my friends will never be back

But not on a holiday. Service was poor and disorganized. Waiter took five orders, put four into the kitchen, and then the staff that brought the food did not say anything about serving four meals to five people. Had to track down waiter to address this. Last person got their meal after the rest had finished. Also, choices within meal selections were botched. . . previous experience here was good.

Nice atmosphere and very good food. Everything was very well prepared. We all loved the truffle Mac and cheese that came as a side with steak. Steak was cooked as ordered and even the burgers were special. This restaurant is a real gem for Winter Haven. We had dinner and returned for Sunday brunch the next day. Brunch choices and preparation were outstanding.

This is a place that you can come to anytime and have a fantastic meal. I come here before I go to the theater. It is close to everything downtown. The staff is friendly and professional. They take the time to cater to your needs even though the place is busy. You will need reservation to assure you have a table. The selection of food is great and tasty. Bring you appetite.

We really enjoyed our dining experience Saturday night. My husband ordered crab cakes for his main meal, he is not a big eater. I ordered the fried shrimp. It was absolutely delicious. Temperature was perfect! I love my food hot not luke warm so I was very pleased with the temperature of my food! The quantity of shrimp was amazing. My husband ate several n I ate several n we still had so many left to take home! My son sure did enjoy them too! Ur cole slaw n potato soup was delicious! We will def be coming again soon!! Also I thought the price was a great value for what we received!! Love the ambiance of the restaurant. Music was perfect, not overwhelming so we could have a nice conversation! Needless to say we had a very nice time. Our server, Scott was very professional n attentive, which added to our dining experience!! We will be coming again soon!!!

We went on a night that there was a lot of activity downtown due to a prom and an event at the theater, so it was pretty packed and noisy. The service was very good and the food excellent as usual. I’d suggest perhaps to lower the music volume so that people aren’t trying to talk over it. Other than that, no complaints. We will definitely be back!

I am a Google guide so accurate reviews is a must. Our reservation was made as an after thought. We we're looking for a place near the Ritz. The one thing I must say is my wife ordered a shrimp dish and failed to notice it had seasamee seeds which she cannot have. Our waiter Scott and a women I presume was the manager graciously recooked it without charging us. The presentation of the food was fabulous. My favorite was the Ahi Tuna crusted appetizer. Wow!!! We thought the prices were very reasonable for the quality of the food, atmosphere and presentation. We have lived in Del Webb Davenport for 2 years now. This BY FAR has been the best dinner experience we have had thus far. We will be back with more friends. Thank you to everyone that made our experience so special.

The seafood, salads and flat bread were very good. However, the two people at our table who ordered steak were very dissatisfied. Obviously your chefs don't understand what we'll done, NO Pink means. The steak was returned twice and still not satisfactory.

My salmon was not cooked. The music started at 6pm and was so loud you couldn’t talk. It should have started st 8 as bar music. Way to loud people moved outside so they could talk. We would have done so if there had been room for 6 people. It was a waste of our time and money. Whole group was disappointed.

We made a Open Table reservation and upon arrival were told we had about a 10-15 min wait even though there were 3-4 open tables which apparently were held for regulars and or no open table customers. Anyway , when we finally sat our waiter was very knowledgeable of the menu and the cuts of steak. Very good service from waiter. Most workers were friendly and accommodating. Bartenders lacked personality for sure. Overall food was very good , a bit pricey and costs for extras were a bit tacky when spending $30 for steak. We enjoyed our food and will probably go back again.

Surprised and happy the restaurant was not busy around 6:30pm on a Saturday evening. We were seated before our reservation time when our whole party wasn’t present which was very nice. The town setting and the interior of Fire were both very nice. Service was wonderful and food delicious with many choices. Our party of 10 were all very pleased by our entire experience at 🔥 Fire.

Waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable of the menu. She made some great recommendations. Food was very good - medium rare steak a little over cooked. Price was reasonable for meals. We arrived and restaurant was empty with exception of one other couple. We were seated at s table very close to back -a table for four - against a wall- not very favorable. Restaurant did not fill up while we were there do not sure why we were seated there. If we were to return would definitely request a table near middle of restaurant.

We enjoyed a variety of delicious apps and the entertainment was wonderful! Our waiter wasn't as attentive as we would have liked. He took a long time to come to our table, mixed up our drink order and also charged us for the mixed-up drink order. But it didn't ruin our evening. We will definitely go back to Fire, especially on Wednesdays when the jazz trio is playing.

Overall a good experience. My rib-eye steak contained lots of gristle. The other 3 people in our party ordered the petite filets and raved about it. Based on their experience I would give it another chance. Musical entertainment at the end of our dinner was excellent.

We were seated at a table right next to the bar even though there were plenty of other tables. It was extremely noisy there. When the waitress brought our drink order I asked if we could be moved to another table. Which she did even though she couldn’t be our waitress there. Much better table and noise level.

Dining as a foursome on Saturday evening, we found the food to be creative and generally well prepared, excepting the side salads, which were totally unremarkable and I would probably opt for the soup on my next visit. The steaks were very flavorful and tender, the fish dishes expertly executed. Meals overall are very reasonably priced.

The wine list, while not extensive nor adventurous, had enough selections for most diners. Almost all the wines on the list are available by the bottle or the glass.

Our server, Ginger, was attentive and seemed well-trained with the exception of the wine service -- she neither presented the bottle before opening, nor did she pour a taste for the wine to be accepted before she poured for the entire table. The food came out of the kitchen quickly; however we were there a little early, with a 6 PM reservation.

She was nice but wasn’t the most attentive and portions were decent size for price. Overall I would def go back for a nice evening out bc of the ambiance!

Just so-so. Not a place we would go out of our way to eat at. Really surprised they don't offer a 1/4 or 1/2 grilled chicken, since they offer grilled steak. The 2 chicken offerings on the menu were covered in so much stuff really made me wonder about the quality of the chicken. We tried it...but, for us, it didn't live up to the local hype.

Came on a Wednesday evening to find they had a 3 piece jazz band playing. The band was good, although a little too loud for conversation.

The food and service were outstanding. My steak was cooked to a perfect medium as requested and was one of the most flavorful ribeye steaks I have had.
