My friends and I went here for brunch on Sunday. The food was wonderful, the service was excellent, and the ambience was lovely. I hadn’t seen these friends in several years, and so we sat and chatted for almost 4 hours, and the staff could not have been nicer and more accommodating and understanding. I highly recommend this restaurant!

It seemed nice at first but I am assuming they were short staffed as is the new normal these days…my ribs were as dry as cardboard,my server was ok,not his fault it took an hour to get our food…our drink wasn’t what we ordered..but on a positive note the manager did take 20 bucks off the bill….would I return,meh,probably not

Service was great, food was very good. Felt a bit expensive for what it was but we enjoyed our meals. Couldn’t help but feel like an upscale “chain” restaurant, but it was good. Varied menu which we liked. The meatball appetizer was a definite favorite and we would return for that alone!

It started off good with two complimentary soft pretzels with Dijon mustard. Excellent.
We ordered the special calamari appetizer. Overcooked and rubbery. I ordered the ribeye steak with garlic peppercorn reduction with crispy onions on top $37. The ribeye was like a cheap fatty steak you’d buy at a supermarket. The garlic mashed and crispy onions were good. My wife order the almond crusted salmon which she liked. Service and ambiance were good. Food was not.

Had dinner with a good friend last and this would be the second time I have been to this resturant. The food was great. My hamburger was cooked perfectly (medium-well) and was not overcooked; it was very juicy.
The cotton candy at the end is a nice addition.
We will be returning.

My family and I had a terrible experience at the restaurant. My husband pulled a long piece of hair out of his mouth and my chicken was not cooked it was hard a chewy. My daughter wouldn't finish her food because of our experience. The drinks, service and the Manager were great though. The Manager comp the entire bill.

Would I go back probably not

I have eaten here many times and always come back as the food is pretty good. We opted for outdoor dining which they offer (so thankful!), just wish staff were still mandated to wear masks in all restaurants (just a personal preference as thought of someone speaking over my food grosses me out now!). Noise level was as to be expected outside. Only complaint was our initial server. I don’t think that he even stated his name, he didn’t offer us the complimentary pretzels that you typically receive when seated (and didn’t offer any explanation as to why not). Checked in once with my husband to see if he needed a refill but didn’t ask the rest of us (those who were less than half full). It wasn’t until a new group was seated and their waitress brought them pretzels that I even remembered that this was the norm. Finally, I guess his shift was over while we were there because he disappeared and a different waiter came by. He was attentive and when I mentioned the pretzels, he offered us a bag to go and apologized for the inconvenience. I would have hoped at least that the first waiter would have come by and let us know that we would continue to receive service from someone else, but nope…

A fantastic dinner with my wife at Grillfire. We were able to sit outside and enjoy the evening. We started with drinks and the complimentary soft pretzels (love them!!) and we ordered the Brussel Sprouts. I then had the ribeye special(horseradish crusted) - came with broccoli and mashed - was able to switch the mashed for a small side salad- it was great!!! My wife had a burger over a large salad - also delicious. The staff was attentive but not intrusive. The manager (Liz) stopped by the table to make sure all was good!! Always a good meal and a great time at a fair price!!! !!can’t wait to go back!!

Outstanding service and excellent food. I love the Monday dinner deal. Every night should have some sort of meal deal otherwise the prices are a bit high. Perhaps coupons or giveaways on certain nights
