My husband and I went here to celebrate our anniversary. The main entrees were ok, but what made us really enjoy this restaurant was the wood-fired pizza we got as an appetizer. We said we would go back again just for that!

Had Mother’s Day reservations at 5 pm. Restaurant was about 1/3 full. We were ready with our food orders right away; however, took the server 30 minutes to come back after bringing our water (our drinks took time after that). We had two small kiddos with and after waiting another 30 minutes for our food, asked if when it was ready could it be boxed to go. She never came back. Spent 1 hour 15 minutes there and left without dinner.

No apologies and no explanations. Saw very few tables with food and parties walking out. Will never go back.

I have enjoyed your dinners. Although I wasn't very pleased with your brunch. I have had it at your store on Grand Ave. A few times and was very pleased.

We went there for Mother's Day table of three kind of pricey $29 and you didn't get anything to drink with that so it's kind of expensive for the area and they only had cookies and a little piece of cake for dessert choices the slices of roast beef very good though will not go back for any buffet that they offer,

So disappointed...

Ordered appetizer and it never arrived(ended up ordering another to go).

Our meal took almost an hour to receive and it arrived cold. We had to ask THREE times for silverware. Our server never checked on us for refills or to see if we needed anything.

This establishment has so much potential. Management needs to train servers and kitchen to be more efficient-attentive.

Nice atmosphere, great service but the food just wasn't that good. I love fall off the bone bbq ribs, but theirs were nowhere close to that. Tough without much sauce. The green beans and potato were OK. Good beer.

Pizza was very good,be careful with salad we paid $12 for one and came out and it was so small could have passed for small side salad and supposed to have chicken breast but it came with couple strips of dark thigh meat ,

We had a reservation and still waited over an hour for our food. We had tickets to an event which we were late for. Our server took our order and then did not check on us for over 30 minutes to refill drinks, etc. Prime rib was undercooked and had clearly been sitting under a heat lamp. We will not return.

Drinks were subpar (mojito was tasteless, had to add extra limes and sugar). Happy hour food was great at a good price. Service was slow, but everything arrived and was accurate.

Service was below average, for example we needed to ask for more water. Server would come to the table with a single beverage and not even ask if anyone else wanted anything.
We waited a long time for our food and the restaurant wasn’t that busy. When we asked where our meals were a few minutes later they came out. One meal wasn’t for our table, the correct meal came out later. My meal was cold but I didn’t send it back since we waited so long. Overall the meal was disappointing.

didn't care for the quac and shrimp stack - shrimp was to have been Cajun and what little of the cut up shrimp there was, it didn't have any flavor.

Web-site said nothing about serving a Easter Buffet and when we arrived at the restaurant was told by Host that the buffet was the only food they were serving. We didn’t stay. Disappointed that the restaurant cannot maintain their website. I’d prefer not to rate them, but don’t have a choice if I want to leave the feedback.

Service was slow, never got utensils, so found them ourselves. Eggs were not tasty. Dessert tray was minimal. I got champagne but not orange juice for my Mimosa.

We arrived at ~6:00 on a Sunday evening, the restaurant was maybe 1/4 full. We ordered our meals at ~6:20 and received our food at ~7:30. At 6:55 we were told a large party caused an issue with our order in the kitchen but it still took 1/2 hour to get our food. There was maybe one or 2 parties that arrived after 7:00 to eat. We don't know what happened but it was ridiculous. We received 50% off our food bill and were in no particular hurry so it wasn't a huge deal at the time but if we were on a schedule, we would have been irate.

Made reservation for 8 for a birthday dinner. We get there the place its quiet since it was only 5pm. When we entered we waited for 5 to 10 min to talk to the hostess. When we did get someone to meet us at the front of the restaurant we had wait another 10 min for our table to get set up. Eventually 20 min later we got up in left the restaurant. At this place point we were at the restaurant for about 40 min and we still haven’t gotten a glass of water. When we went to the hostess to ask who the waitress was and we would like some drinks. The waitress came over and just gave us attitude and said that we were waiting because she was getting water for another table. This was not true. During this time she sat three to four different tables, answer the phone twice and spent time looking for another worker. I have always enjoyed Axels, but after this experience we will not be coming back. This was suppose to be a special birthday dinner and it was ruined by the lack of attention to a customer. It is unacceptable to have customers wait a 40 min with little to no service.

Service was very slow, our waitress had quite a few big groups so we were left waiting a lot! She did apologize and we knew it wasn’t her fault. First time we’ve ever had poor service! LOVE that we can make reservations!!!

Reservations for Monday Night are not needed. Plenty of tables open by fire, I asked to be seated near the fire. Hostess replies that she had cleaned the booth and set up for us in between and bar and the Kitchen. I should have said something. Plenty of open tables near near the fire, just to lazy to put more silverware down. My Food was Great and the apps were tasty! Drunken Sirloin is the bomb.

So waitress took her drink order and brought our drinks out we ordered our entrees never got our salads had to bring our empty glasses up to order another round at the bar. Then we got our entrees before we ever got our salads. Waitress brought the salads out 10 minutes after we got her on tree. Or did the walleye my husband did not get to full fillets fish was not hot. Had the manager come out in a woman explained she will train her staff better but never offered to kampar Bill or give us anything off the $70 tab. The service was so poor and we will not be back

We made reservation for 18 people the day of a family gathering. Not only were they accommodating, but they were extremely well prepared. Our Server, Kat, did an awesome job considering the size of our group over a dinner rush. The entire family was impressed.

Was very disappointed in the service, the food was horrible. The advertised special was not available by 6:30. The waitress was dressed inappropriate (messy) we will not return. My steak was like cardboard, it was ordered medium. I never di get my steak sauce. My wind was served in a warm glass.

9 family members went to Bonfire to celebrate a birthday. It was the worse experience. Waitress was extremely slow, never brought beverage refills unless we asked. Food was served cold, when we told a server about the cold food, she grabbed it away, with french fries flying off the plate onto my husbands lap, no apology. Received the bill with no itemized receipt. Won't go back
