Step back in time to when going out for dinner meant something really special. From the decor to the jazz music, Wildfire has the style and warmth that makes it perfect for celebrating with friends or a quiet evening for two. The extensive menu features broiled steaks and chops, wood-roasted seafood and roasted meats, all prepared in an open kitchen. Signature dishes include Horseradish Crusted Filet Mignon, Macadamia Nut Crusted Halibut, Wildfire Chopped Salad and Cedar Planked Salmon. So order a signature martini or one of our many wines by the glass, then sit back and enjoy the 1940s supper club experience of Wildfire.

Always a very good meal! I ordered the fish special and needed to have it sent back to get warmed. Not a big deal yet, the manager came over to make sure I was satisfied. Great service!

We went to Wildfire for Thanksgiving and it was excellent - both the food and the experience, in general. They even accommodated for food allergies.

Wonderful service and food. But sound level was high and background music louder than normal. Its was hard to have a conversation without shouting across the table.

We were there for Thanksgiving. Since it was just 3 of us we thought we’d try a restaurant and Wildfire has always been one of our favorites. But we were disappointed. We felt very rushed. Weren’t asked if we wanted a second beverage or coffee. Food wasn’t great. Felt like we were part of some sort of assembly line or race. It wasn’t relaxing or delicious. Will continue to do Thanksgiving at home.

Thanksgiving Dinner was wonderful!
Good selection and quality food.
The service was exceptional- The waiter anticipated your needs before
You even asked. The noise level was of a bustling restaurant but not enough to disturb.

Food was delicious as expected! Wide variety of choices for the family to share. Part of our party got the wrong arrival time and the restaurant was so understanding and completely accommodating. The waiter was terrific! Very thankful for that!

When I made my reservation, I didn’t know there was only a pre-fixe menu. Nothing in the app about it. My son is a very picky eater and didn’t eat anything as there was no kids option. Thankfully the manager didn’t charge us the $28 for kids.
Menu aside, the service was decent. When we were sat, I noticed a spill on the table. I asked the staff for napkins to wipe it but they didn’t provide. The table had quite a slant and was wobbly.
Food quality was okay, the salmon was delicious as was the desserts and coffees. The salads were drowning in dressing and the mandatory appetizers were just okay.
Wildfire is a staple and I am grateful they were open. I just wish there were options or updates when making the reservation that there are no options and it’s family style only.

We enjoyed our dinners immensely. My sister had the Porterhouse cooked to perfection. I went with the Tuesday Turkey dinner. It was moist and flavorful. The shrimp appetizer was good. We especially loved the Door County Cherry Pie for dessert. The service was excellent. Our server was a knowledgeable professional and quite accomodating.

The staff remains fantastic, though the pandemic has definitely made for a different dining experience. So much has change about the menu including limited options outside of the staples and a substantially lower quality listing of wines. We enjoyed our meal and will definitely return some time in the future, but I dare say we are looking for other options for those special celebrations that we had once counted on LEYE group restaurants to share

The prime rib was the toughest I've ever eaten. It must have been fast cooked because there was lots of grissel and it was still hard to cut. I'll need to do the ribeye always!

My husband's augratin potatoes were undercooked. Both of our meat dishes were unremarkable. Was expecting the quality to be better. Menu very pared down. I was looking for meatloaf - one of several dishes we remember from the past.

The food was underwhelming
Nothing hot
Like steak and French fries
The presentation of the steak..slab of meat on a plate
Not too inviting
Ordered Key Lime Pie, brought home
Crust dry.. actually terrible
The pie tastes stale

We specifically asked for a salad- and stated we would order our entree later. Which we did. Except the salad was served and within 2 minutes the entrees were brought out. We explained we wished to enjoy our salad and when the entrees came, clearly they were under the heat lamp ( stark knife too hot to handle and salmon dried out and warm. Just a warning to all
