    McKenna, our server, was superb. Half of our party got stuck in traffic and she was attentive with drinks and appetizers (we were starving) pronto. Food was excellent and her wine recommendation was right on the nose.

    I took my friend here for her birthday and we had a really lovely time. The food and drinks were all delicious - and the staff was amazing at accommodating my friend’s gluten allergy. We came at the perfect time for sunset and were even lucky enough to see dolphins. Overall highly recommend!

    Eating at Campfire was awesome! The food has unique flavors. At our table of four we had: the charred carrots, porridge bread with freshly made butter, asparagus with fresh sweet peaches, avocado with sweet cherries, charred brisket cooked to perfection, chipotle charred chicken, potatoes cooked in a iron pan, two orders of huge oyster’s, light and fluffy cheesecake and of course the s’mores. The food was unique in flavors and did not disappoint, the staff was friendly, eager to please our requests, the atmosphere was pleasant; I highly recommend eating at Campfire, you will not be disappointed.
