We have eaten here on holidays before, the food is always good. We were here for Thanksgiving, the turkey was very tender & flavorful. Green beans & mashed potatoes , etc. was great. I was not real fond of the stuffing, but I am not used to the cornbread kind. You can have more of all the food and the best part, you can take home leftovers.

Went to this location on Thanksgiving Day to meet family members. Everyone was very pleased with the friendly and welcoming service. We were also visited at the table by two people whom I presume were management, to be sure we were being taken care of and to assure us that we could stay and visit as long as we liked. This was a very pleasant change from other restaurants we have visited on special days (holidays, Mother's Day, etc.) which have limited our time at the table so they could seat other customers. The food was OK, standard Thanksgiving fare, and in line with the price at $25/person. Usually coffee and soft drinks are included for the fixed price but here they were not. The food may have not been particularly outstanding, however the restaurant offered no-charge seconds on any food item we wanted, which was very generous. We usually go to the Bonfire location in Woodbury, and have always found it to be a good value, with good, friendly service.

Staff was great! Very out going and cheerful. Food was great value with generous serving size. This was not our first Thanksgiving dinner with Bonfire, and will not be our last.

The restaurant was not busy at all and we were seated right away. After almost 15 minutes with no wait staff coming to our table we left. Very disappointing to wait with no contact as we noted 3 wait staff in the restaurant and there couldn’t have been much more than 10 full tables. Very unlikely to return to this location.

We love the bonfire but I'd skip the fish fry next time. Way too salty!! Everything else was great but that meal was pure sodium. We'll still be back!

We were very disappointed in our prime rib, Caprese salad & ice tea that we ordered. Thinnest piece of prime rib that we ever had. My husband said that the ice tea was the worst tasting ice tea he ever had. We would have preferred a salad instead of the Caprese salad.

My husband got the land and sea entree. Was seriously disappointed with the portion size considering the price of the meal. He was still hungry afterwards. My daughter got the chicken wrap sandwich and found a bone inside of it. Service was good but considering how disappointed we were with the food, not planning on coming back.

Food was pretty good. But three of us ordered salad and were told that they don’t have bread to serve with the salad. Also - background music was horrible and loud. It got turned up once we got there. My parents are older and they couldn’t hear any of the conversations over the music.

Nice atmosphere! We ordered a burger, it was over cooked, dry and missing friend onions. The wrap was dry and had way too much cheese. We asked for no onions, it came with onions. The Mac n cheese came with e teas that were not on the menu. They remade 3 dishes. The potatoes with the steak were cold. The power bowl had good flavor? But the quinoa was over cooked. The waitress was clueless, the manager was not so great either. He sounded rather irritated. It was father’s day and it was not busy. We drove an hour to get there and $90 later it’s was a bad experience.

We arrived at 6:15 and the rest of our party got there about 5:35. Service was slow. Seemed to wait forever for our entrees. The walleye bites appetizer was good. Three of the sides were Wong for the 8 of us. We were there until 7:30 PM. Our waitress did comp us for the wrong sides after she talked to the manager.

The appetizer we order was absolutely boring(crab claws). Our server was more interested in talking with the drunk regular at the bar vs bringing us our good, she stood 10 feet away from me( talking with the guy at the bar)holding my drink refill for 10 minutes before finally dropping it off. Never checked with us to see how our food was.

I had a reservation and they couldn’t find it in the system, so we called an set up a reservation AGAIN for 6 over the phone and upon arriving there they asked us to sit at the bar. Uh, not even close to an option for the group we had - 1 pregnant person, a minor, and all family trying to chat and not sit in a line at the bar. Horrible!

The food was tasty but a bit on the cold side. We heard they didn’t have as many cooks as normal so willing to give it a pass this time.

I know on mothers Day you are busy, but the waitress was slow to refill our waters. I have been hoing to this mothers day buffet for at least 10 years and I was surprised not to see certain items on the buffet, Such as French toast, French toast sticks on the kids table does not replace it. They used to have a BLT salad that was delicious didn't see that there. The budget cuts are showing for those people that have been going to this buffet for more than 5 years it's very obvious that cutbacks are being made. The dessert table is shrinking as well need to bring back some good desserts last year they had a really good layered dessert that I didn't see as well. The walleye was cold. Advice stop removing items and review past success, hring some items back that made this event special. There also wasnt an uce sculpture this year, bring it back.

I have been to Bon Fire several times and I am never disappointed. The food is always good, service is prompt and it's a great place to meet "on a date," even if the date this time was awful.

We were looking forward to a nice dinner out, wedding anniversary but this outing failed to meet our expectations. The waitress was apparently new to the game. My steak filet was a little overdone, mostly dry. No bread basket to munch on while having our cocktails. Mostly a sportsbar environment without TVs.
