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.

Make a reservation if you’re going on a weekend or you’ll be waiting for a long time. Their corn bread is amazing, the steak is well cooked and seasoned, the sides are big enough to share with one more person. The service is great, they’re very attentive and constantly check up on you.

Big portions, enough to share an entree, dessert, and small salad. Service & meals usually excellent! Wine list has something for all budgets & tastes. Go Monday for half off on selected wines by the bottle.

I have been here multiple times and like this restaurant. This time was a very busy Thursday night. After everyone was seated it took very long for the waiter to come to the table.

We ordered and everything was fine until the entre’ Came out before the Appetizers which followed shortly thereafter.

My steak ordered medium rare was medium to medium well despite being a bone in.

I wouldn’t rule out this restaurant as it is normally top tier. But this visit was below par.

Everything was great, except for the food. Someone must have fallen asleep when cooking my wife’s steak. She asked for a medium rare steak, and got a well done steak. The manager was told of our problem, and he took care of us by cooking another steak for my wife, and taking one meal off our bill.

We have eaten at Wildfire in the past and always enjoyed our food. However, we usually have had fish or hamburgers. This time, we had roast beef for one entree and a small filet for the other. We began with a very good Caesar salad and enjoyed the nice variety of rolls in the bread basket.
The roast beef, unfortunately, was very tough and definitely not up to expectation. The filet was average...certainly not among the best we've had. This was very disappointing since we rarely go out for a meat centered dinner and we were looking forward to this. We expressed our feelings to the waitress and she sent over the manager who was very nice and helpful in resolving the situation.

We took the family there for the Supper Club menu and they gave us the Bears room. We were thrilled. Sometimes its loud in the general seating area and this was an awesome treat not to mention we are Bears fans. We weren't rushed at all and the service was wonderful. The food and choices were great. Only comment I have about the food was the asparagus was cold and not cooked enough and the chicken could have been cooked more. Everything else was wonderful! One of my favorite places to eat!

We have been to Wildfire (three different locations) and have never had a bad meal. One tip, get seating in the main room. The “side” rooms get a lot of service traffic so not as quiet. Our servers always seem to be knowledgeable and professional.

For the first time ever, I was extremely disappointed in my meal and the service at Wildfire. I ordered off the special holiday menu and received a salmon filet with chunks of lemon and capers covering the top, full of lemon pits. After chewing several pieces and getting pits, I had to scrape off all the lemon and pull off the fourteen lemon pits. After 10 or 15 minutes of trying to flag our waiter, he called the manager over. The manager’s answer was that the chef said that is how they made the dish. I said lemon pits are not edible. He said you are right and we’ll tell him not to prepare it that way. He did ask if I wanted a replacement dinner, but it had taken so long for someone to come over that my companions were done eating. We arrived at 5:15, it took a full hour before our dinner was served. The end result was my dinner was taken off the bill. I would have preferred to enjoy a meal of the usual quality I have come to expect at Wildfire.

Our server was very pushy about trying to convince us to accept 3x points from the lettuce app versus using the credits we already had. In fact, he went so far as to accept the points before I had decided if I was going to accept the points versus use the discounts I had already accumulated. When I informed him that I did not want to accept the points but I wanted to use my discounts, he was very rude to me.
I'm not sure if the servers benefit in some way from customers accepting points versus using the discounts, but your servers need to be instructed that it is the patrons choice and not theirs.
