We’ve gone to Bonfire for years, and feel like it’s slipping. Our server was great but stretched too thin so overall things took too long. Food was OK but they’ve taken some old favorites off the menu. Not our first choice in the area.

The beer-battered cod, and walleye and shrimp (decent-sized) were all really tasty, and the fries were crispy and hot.

Our server was great, but that was about it. Pretty small portions for the $$ and just okay in flavor. Not sure that I would return :(

Slow service on New Year’s Eve possibly due to the fact they were busy. But the food was marginal at best. The salmon fillet on my salmon Caesar salad was so dry I could not even eat it. To their credit, they replaced the fillet but it Arrived at the end of our meal, had no flavor, and was still dry. Very disappointing. The drinks were weak too.

Bonfire provides a great experience and gift cards from Costco are a great deal 75/100.

We live close to the area and strongly recommend to taste their appetizers, meals and desserts. I would be careful to order drinks since their bartenders are slow as molasses. Try to order your drinks way ahead of time or you will find yourself enjoying water for a while.

We sat at the bar to order appetizers with drinks before heading to play at the Escape Room. All went well but the timing to get drinks and water refills. The bar seatings were in their 70% and the rest of the property probably 40-50; patio closed during winter time. The bartenders were not busy at all. They were just distracted and lazy. There were two: a guy in his late 50 who seemed trying his hardest but overwhelm and a guy in his mid 30 who avoided eye contact with customers who were waving hands to catch his attention. Bar sink was piled was dirty cups and glasses. I recall Darius managing that area completely full and having it under control.

We hadn’t went for quite a while, so we decided to go. Most of the food was very disappointing this time! We ordered the pickle/cheese curds for an appetizer. It came AFTER the main meal and the cheese curds were cold in the middle! The 3 cheese sausage pizza was mediocre and the crust was not crunchy. The burgers were ok. The only thing that was really good was the shrimp pot. We used to love the food at Bonfire, but were really disappointed this time.

We had reservations. When we arrived, we waited 15 mins for someone to check us in. I told him we had reservations and to please record it so Open Table wouldn't ding me. I asked twice before he actually did so. Service was terrible slow and the restaurant was not very busy. Food was just okay. Not impressed.

We were there for the "Brunch with Santa". I am not a fan of buffets, and this one was typical, nothing special especially for the price. However, I know that their regular menu is very nice, and will return just for that next time.

Salmon with mashed potatoes - not good. The mashed potatoes were dry (had to ask for butter to moisten them) and the salmon was covered with a thick syrup that made it sticky, as well as being overcooked & dry. We hadn't been there for two years, and that last time the food and the service were both bad - so I think they still need to work on their menu and the food preparation - it really is not a good restaurant.

The food was very good as usual. The three beer drinkers were disappointed that, after discussion among ourselves, the beers we chose were not available although on the menu.

Had the fish and chips. French fries were under done. Fish had too much batter. Menu has changed. Seems there is more emphasis on the bar crowd than the dinner crowd. They formerly had the best walleye in town served as an entrée both at lunch and dinner. They still have it on the dinner menu but at a higher price. Overall, I was very disappointed.

Food was generally very good, I enjoy Bonfire, but the french fries were so salty I could only eat a few. I had made a mention to the waitress about it and she said nothing.

I would not recommend based on my meal and the meals of my family. Very bland/blah. No personality in the food. For example, I had the walleye tacos. Two tortillas, tomatoes, lettuce and maybe onions and chunk walleye. No sauce, no seasoning, just blah. Dry and unenjoyable.

We have eaten here before several years ago when we were in town which is why I selected it again. The only thing that disappointed me was my own meal. I ordered a prime rib and it came out first which is wonderful. However, that meat, the potatoes and the vegetable were all stone cold. I had to send it back and my replacement came after everyone else got their meal. They’re replacing all is fine, but that should not of happened. The service was good and we had a good waitress. Cold dinner kind of turned me off.

Come prepared to be disappointed. I don't know what it will take for management and cooking staff to get it. We vowed to stop coming here for food, as we almost always complain and send something back. This time it was the baked potato. It must have sat in a microwave for ten minutes or under a heat lamp for thirty. We sent it back and they brought out a beautiful bake potato to go along with our rotisserie chicken. Here's the deal..why doesn't someone...the cook, the waitress, the manager..someone stop crappy food from hitting the table. It was visible? Oh well, The Crooked Pint is hopping and it's where we will spend our money from now on. Good luck!

Needed to find a good brunch spot in the area. We found it!!! Bottomless mimosas, a Bloody Mary that’s a meal in itself and so many delicious food choices. Bonfire brunch is GREAT!! I wish I could get it every day.

Our server was new, and obviously under-trained to be flying solo. My wife, a vegetarian, asked that her baked potato have only butter and sour cream on it. She was less than happy to find bacon under the sour cream. The server arguing about how it was ordered did not help. Overall, she was slow to check back, and slow to fulfill our requests. As it was not terribly busy, there was no excuse for this low level of service. Unlikely that we will return. To be clear, I go in expecting to tip 20%. Service dictates whether that goes up or down. It went way down. Disappointing.

The waitress had a lack if knowledge and excuses, she questioned why a member of our party didn't have a DL and only a state issued ID, the bartender took over 35 minutes to make 5 drinks, took 25 mi utrs to get a child milk.

The restaurant had one other table, there were plenty of staff members to help, but didn't.

Managment was off site as there was a medical emergency, so there was no supervision or management to lead the team.

Have no plans to go back.
