Step back in time 60 years 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 quintessential 1940s supper club experience of Wildfire.

Never NOT a 5Star experience!

Always consistent, always solid, always 5 Star. It's so nice to have a great affordable place like Wildfire to be able to count on for Family Dinners, Business lunches, and even Brunches!

We go to Wildfire all the time . We love their prime rib and twice bake potato. Every time we go the price is higher. We share the middle size cut of the prime rib. The chopped salad is not worth the price.

Stopped in for a light dinner in the bar area. Split a small chopped salad. It could have fed 5 people. Waiter/bartender served us. Also ordered a shrimp cocktail for an appetizer. We were also served a loaf of onion bread, and butter. These were more than enough to satisfy the hunger. The shrimp seemed a little small, for the... More

We were visiting family in the Chicago area and friends recommended this restaurant. The food and drinks were all very good. Our waiter was attentive. It's the opposite of intimate dining - it's a large restaurant and a bit noisy, but the food was worth it!

We are visiting the local area and were looking for a late lunch, early dinner. After reviewing the menu online, this looked like the place that would satisfy everyones tastes. From the half-chicken to the Bison Burger and a Pizza, the food was prepared well and quickly. Everyone was super friendly and very attentive although the restaurant wasn't particularly busy....

We have been getting take outs from here for years. Particularly their chopped salad. Maybe it is my imagination, but there seems to be more lettuce, less other ingredients and higher prices.

Always a good meal here from a simple burger to surf and turf. A spot in the bar you can catch a game and a nice dinner or a private party room for a special event. Don't pass on the beet salad Their beer dinners are a great way to enjoy the venue

The selection was good (seafood & Steaks plus other dishes) the steaks were very nice, the service was typical American, which always seems a bit false to European visitors. The wine list was pretty good, but it was expensive, which compared to the food which was reasonable. This was a group from work, so the ambiance would be different than... More

The place was recommended by a friend who lives in the area. The place is very busy, but service was quick and friendly. I had the ribeye steak, and in my opinion steaks can't get better than this. A meal after my heart (although too big for my stomach).
