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.

It seems like it's a newer spot so everyone is checking it out. If you go between normal dinner hours call ahead for a reservation. Our waitress was really great. The food came out slow but it was delicious. Most of my table got steak - but the fish meals looked great as well. Definitely check this place out if... More

Wildfire never disappoints! Came here for lunch and had the goat cheese appetizer which included toasted garlic parmesan brushed pita bread. The dip had roasted red pepper and goat cheese served warm...absolutely to die for. Both of us had the crusted fillet duo with garlic mashed potatoes. Our steaks had parmesan, blue cheese, and Bernaise crusts. For two, our bill... More

A native Chicagoan brought me here for dinner and the filet was phenomenal - perfectly done and delicious. They have a bone-in filet on the menu, which it have only seen in one other restaurant on Palm Beach. The reason Wildfire does not get five stars is the atmosphere. For the price, diners should get tablecloths, a more subdued feel... More

Wildfire is always good - even if you just want a great bowl of soup and a salad. We went last Saturday and had Baked Onion Soup and split their Spinach Salad - add a few slices of their to die for corn bread, a few glasses of wine and you are all set! Great way to have a causal... More

My family and i have been there for the past two weekends and have been served cold fries and they screwed up the meat ordered on a salad. I just wish a manager came over to apogize. It will be awhile before I go back.

I have to confess that I've eaten here so often they put my name on the wall (literally). Signature dishes include the halibut, the fillet, and a chopped salad that's so good that I buy the dressing and make it at home. Great service, always packed, and it deserves to be. The menu's variety, quality, and signature items make it... More

You can count on Wildfire for the Lettuce Entertain You experience: good food, attentive service, tasteful surroundings, a busy vibe. We love the chopped salad. And the burgers are good too.

I ordered the 1/2 slaw of baby back ribs that were cooked to long and was rather tuff to eat, I also oredered the house... More

My family and I have been here before and enjoyed the food and service. However tonight I was baffled on a Monday night by my experience. I ordered a Hendricks martini dirty. Had to send it back because it was full of vermouth, second one was not much better. My husband ordered a salad, I had the ribeye medallions and... More

I attended a work meeting here that included a vendor presentation. The food was very good, the service was great and the room was off to the side and was well laid out. I only wish the screen was bigger as it would have made it easier to see in the back of the room. The cheese cake and corn... More
