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.

When we arrived, we were taken in right away, and led to the parking lot, where they have the diners set up for dining, since the mandate was put in place. Our server was very nice, and made sure to check on us periodically. My only complaint is, we were celebrating a birthday, in which I specifically put under my reservations, in which this was completely overlooked or ignored. Not sure which one. Once I addressed this issue, it was taken care of right away. We were given a slice of cake to go, without being asked if we wanted to have this option of having it to go, or to continue to dine there, and celebrate. I only say this because, I saw a table across from us celebrating a birthday as well, and had their dessert brought out to them to enjoy after their meal, right after I addressed my issue. I really wish we were given this option, but overall, everything else was enjoyable, and great.

The food was good but they messed up my sons order. He asked for medium rare, it came back well done. The food they corrected ended up rare. He sucked it up and ate it. It was his birthday so it was a bad experience. We also asked for more corn bread as they didn’t provide enough for everyone the table. It never came. Our waiter was not attentive and hard to get a hold of the whole time. I paid $350.00 and could’ve paid less for more somewhere else.

It was my birthday. We were placed in a backroom with screaming kids. When I expressed my concern I was told “oh well”. Apparently our $400+ tab didn’t matter.
One of my favorite places to eat, not sure I will be back. Kind of ruined my celebration. Sadly the pumpkin pie normally out in October wasn’t out yet either. A birthday bummer for sure 💔

Celebrated our anniversary at Wildfire and it was great! My husband had the New York Strip with horseradish crust and I had the macadamia nut crusted Halibut and both were superb.

Our steaks were not flavorful at all. My au gratin potatoes were horrible. I ordered a raspberry cosmopolitan and there were no raspberries. The waiter said raspberries were too expensive. We won't be back!

Always book a specific area of the restaurant and they never let me down. I always get the seating I want. The meals are always delicious. I love the Wellington, salmon, Medallions, and New York strip. The sides are all fantastic too. My favorite restaurant by far.

My steak was overcooked. Had to get up and find the waiter to notify him. The manager never apologized for the overcooked steak. My potato also became cold while waiting for my newly prepared steak. Never gave me a new potato. Also, the waiter forgot to bring me the second Martini I asked for with my meal. This was probably the worst experience I’ve had at Wildfire. It’s my favorite restaurant and I‘m usually impressed with the food and service. It was also a windy night and a bit too cold to sit outside. The propane tank for our lantern kept going out. Overall, not the best experience but at least my 2nd steak was cooked perfectly and very delicious!

Dinner last night was fantastic. The atmosphere was just right...low lighting and quiet..I felt like we could stay there for hours just talking. Now..the food...WOW! My husband ordered calamari..which I don't really prefer...let's just say I stole more pieces than I expected to. The batter is light and crispy and the dipping sauce set it off perfectly. I ordered the filet mignon wellington and my mouth dropped. I literally savored every bite!! I know it was expensive...but worth every bite. It was a grand evening and we will be going back.

We usually come here for special occasions, but also from time to time for an elevated dining experience. This is now the second time in a row that we felt the food was below standards. Here’s the the course by course review. Cesar salad: Excellent. Nicely chopped, fresh, and just plain good. French onion soup: bland. The broth tasted like brown water with onions. The cheese on top was tasty. Take a pass on this $9 a bowl miss. Enters: Beef Wellington was wonderful per my wife. The accompanying sides; Just not good. The snow peas were tough and chewy. We assumed they were trying for a crisp fresh taste. My wife described the scalloped potatoes as a stack of glue. Nuff said. My roast chicken was good, nothing special though. I can’t say that about the roasted veggies though. I love roast veggies. These reminded me of a some hastily removed from a grill fire. Roasted does not mean scorched. I really wanted a steak, but that was pedestrian the last time we were there. I won’t pay $50 for something Outback makes better.

I’m sad to say that I think we’re done with Wildfire. The food is not as good as it once was.

When we saw the restaurant offering a beef Wellington, I have been craving that for a long time, and I have to say, it was probably the BEST one I have ever had. It was done just perfectly and the taste was outstanding.

We originally requested outdoor seating but it happened to be an exceptionally cool day. They quickly accommodated our party for spaced apart indoor seating and I was very grateful.

This used to be our favorite place to go for special occasions. But this last time I noticed a surcharge on my bill. Apparently it is a Covid surcharge. So those of us who venture out to Wildfire to spend our money to support them are penalized. I guess I'm the fool. I will find a new favorite spot from now on.

During these trying times, Wildfire continues to perform to my expectation. A cold and windy rain had us leave our table in the tent for refuge indoors. The staff handled our move pleasantly and lunch proceeded on he.

Food was outstanding as usual, but portions of Halibut and dessert (Door County Cherry Pie) were noticeably smaller than in the past.

We do wish Wildfire would expand their microbrew beer selections
