First time visit. Enjoyed the food, drink, and service. We were there at 7PM on a Thursday night and basically had the place to ourselves, so can’t really comment on the noise level. However , I would suspect with a full house, the place could get noisy. It was very windy that evening so we didn’t try, but next time we’ll try dining outside on their patio. Overall, a very good experience and we will be adding Campfire to our rotation.

Campfire was an overall good dining experience. We went very early to accommodate work schedules for my Fiancé and I, about 7:30 am. The atmosphere was definitely quiet, with only a few other people in the restaurant reading newspaper and drinking coffee over breakfast. The atmosphere is very aesthetically pleasing and modern. Neon light up signs, care in details of decoration and a "texas/modern" theme were all combined smoothly to create a unique and upscale vibe. The food was my only drawback, don't get me wrong it was good, but not great. I could eat the same quality food for much cheaper, albeit without the ambiance of this place. I have a feeling breakfast is different than the other meals in their attention to unique menu items. Maybe it's because I am poor, but this restaurant would be better suited to us for a dinner on a special occasion in order to be worth the price.

We live in College Station and had wanted to try Campfire! It was wonderful.
The Beef Short Ribs were rich and the dish was excellent. My wife got the
pork chop and loved it. Our server, Kayle, was so nice and made sure we had a
great experience. Will go back and take friends and family members.

Very nice restaurant. Food was good but cold. Had to send a steak back to heat it. Also short ribs were good but just barely warm. I watch other food sit under lamps for quite a while. The wait staff was timely but things were not coming together in the kitchen? Everything was very nice.

We went to Campfire with 3 others for a 20th anniversary celebration. We went to the bar first to take advantage of their "great" happy hour. I'd have to say, don't bother. The service there was horrible. It looked like the wait staff was also making the drinks. I saw they had to get out the Mr. Boston bar book to figure out how to make my drink, and then I received an Old Fashion, not a Manhattan.
We got seated right away for our reservation, and they comped a bottle of sparkling wine to compensate for the bar experience. We ordered starters, salads and sides as well as entrees. The starters came out with the salads and sides. I was stuffed before the entrees showed up - and had already eaten the sides. All of us brought home our entrees - which were very good reheated, but I would have preferred to have them while we were there.

I enjoyed my time there. I went for breakfast very early in the morning so it wasn't packed at all. Our server was amazing and funny. The food! The food was great! I got the migas since our server recommended it and my bf got the biscuits and gravy. Both were great. I would definitely go back and try their dinner!

We were seated for over 20 minutes before anyone came to our table to offer us water, etc. We had 3 waitresses who were not communicating with each other and tried to take our order three different times. Even with that many waitresses, they only came up to our table a total of 6 times (one after 20+ minutes of waiting to bring us water, three times to take our order, once to bring our food out and once to bring us our checks). We got our food after having been there for an hour and 15 minutes. In that hour and 15 minutes our drinks were refilled (only water) only once. There were only 6 other tables seated in the time we were there. Food was fine, but not worth waiting an hour for. We will not being going back.

We were 5 people for a business lunch. Everything was very nice, the food is delicious, affordable and has a touch of experimental - not your usual food, better! When we arrived the table wasn't ready, which I expected since I pre-reserved. Also, the preparation of the food took a while even though the restaurant only had a few people. BUT, those two thing didn't really take away from the rest of the experience. I recommend this restaurant!

We were four people and everybody liked it. We had a great time and we could talk without being bothered by others. A really nice environment and the temperature was perfect; neither hot or too cold, which ruins dinners for me when is too cold. Background music was soft and appropriate. Food was of good quality and portion size reasonable, not giant.

Heirloom tomato toast was delicious--tomatoes paired with goat cheese and sprinkled with sunflower seeds on crunchy toast with a generous side of dressed arugula. The pimento cheese grilled cheese was a bit of a disappointment, and the fries and chips accompanying them were overly salty. And I like my salt!

Lovely physical space and comfortable chairs. Very few people there for a late Saturday lunch, so it was quiet and private--perfect for conversation.

Absolutely incredible. Great service and the food was on point. We started with drinks and the charcuterie board and lobster mac n cheese. The wifes Mermaid Mai Tai as well as the apps were great. Entrees were chicken schnitzel and braised short rib. Wife loved her chicken and while not the best short rib Ive had, it was still very enjoyable. Dessert was the Campfire S'mores, their signature dessert, a kind of deconstructed S'more, that was very enjoyable. Server was attentive, music was low enough to converse, temp was perfect. All in sll, we loved it and will return.

Prior to
Making the decision ion to dine at Campfire since we would be coming from Houston, I called the restaurant and was informed there was no special for Mother’s Day and was told the menu was a la charge for that day with entrees ranging from $16 to $18. So, we made the reservations. Arrived yesterday only to find out it was a brunch buffet and the cost was $60 per person!! Needless to say this was out of our price range so we did not stay. I explained all this to the hostess and she volunteered to get the manager but I said thank you but I’m sure he’s not going to reduce the price just for us!!

We visited Campfire for the first time on Sat before Mother's Day. We were disappointed. We had been told that there would be a full menu; there was not (Graduation Night menu). The portions were small for the relatively high price (compared to other local restaurants). The bread was tasteless. The filets were accompanied with one or two (the number varied at the table) gravel sized vegetables. The side of asparagus was good, albeit very thick stalks. The burger was served on a flat wooden platter that was incapable of containing the juices from the burger; they spilled onto the table ('cool' but impractical). Were told the fries were hand cut, they appeared to not be. They were skins on (which is fine). The service was very good and friendly. In fact, the server warned one of our party that the fish entree would be small. He was right.

Menu is limited but Food had good flavor. Suggest you view on line first. Feel as though it has potential. Seems like staff is still learning especially at price point. Setting is fun and aesthetically pleasing. Ordered filet but they were short, so they substituted a NY strip wanna be- the steak was the thinnest NY strip I’ve ever witnessed in Texas or any other contiguous US state. (BTW, the graduate got the Filet and it was perfect). Now that I got that off my chest, overall it was good. Like I said, once they figure it out, it has potential! I’ll go back during football season just to see if they figured it out!

I wish your cooks would eat a meal at the republic. Yalls food was pretty but no wow in the taste. You can have carrot soup at the republic and it alone blows your mind. And there steaks melt in your mouth. They need to eat there soon and see what their doing right but everything else was great. I hope y’all succeed!
