Our family started with the zucchini fries, which were crispy, delicious and served with a wonderful creamy horseradish. We proceeded with the linguini and shrimp, ribeye steak special, steak and shrimp combo and the chicken and artichokes, which were all prepared perfectly and quite tasty.

Steak Night Special! You'd think that would have been a 'bang 'em out' night. Surprisingly, the service was a little on the slow side. Drinks came at a normal pace, but there was a lonnnng delay between ordering and receiving a salad (aren't those pre-made?). The entrees came out hot, but the surprising parts were in the quality of the meat (the filet didn't cut every well, even with a steak knife--tearing is more like it). And man, the salt content!

It's not a cheap dinner, but not the most expensive around. I've had much better experiences at Grillfire. Maybe the chef/kitchen staff was having an off night. I'll give them another try, but maybe in a couple of months.

Sad to say, I won't be able to recommend Grillfire based off this experience.

The food and service were excellent. We ate outside so the noise from the trucks and traffic on sunrise highway and the Long Island rail Road may the level quite high. However the food and service made up for it. I would highly recommend

Good night out. Service great, we changed tables from outside to in with no problem. Most people had reserved ahead as it is super busy. Wait service exceptional and they bring complimentary pretzels at start and cotton candy at end, very quirky and fun. French onion soup and brussel sprouts both good starters. Filet cooked perfectly, entree salad special innovative and tasty. Only disappointment was encrusted salmon which was bland but again cooked perfectly. It was meant to be a Dijon sauce but it was flavorless. Cookie. Sliders heavenly. Wonderful.

We couldn’t get a menu because we needed a phone. Had trouble signing in on phone.
The bus boy kept wanting to clean table when here were still eating. Food was good.

I love Grillfire in Merrick. The food is always consistently good as well as the service. The ambiance is great and we always have a fun time. Whether you are going with friends or a significant other Grillfire is always a top choice. They have a great Happy Hour and lots of great specials as well. I would highly recommend Grillfire!
