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.

Steak, Salad & Berry Crisp!!

I must confess I like Wildfire. I have been there for work events and personal outings and each time I am NOT disappointed by the quality of the food nor the price. For work events we do the special group menu. Some get the martinis "flights" to enjoy. I love the steak (filet), chopped salad and... read more

We stopped here on 8/23 for lunch. I had the stuffed burger w/fries and my daughter had the filet mignon. The burger and filet mignon were so-so ~ both were a bit overcooked, and the fries were soggy. Definitely nothing to rave about. We did however order the hot oven pretzels which were very tasty, but really not any different... More

We arrived 5 mins after the cutoff for our reservation on 26 august in the evening. The hostess was a bit rude and said we would now have to wait. OK. How long, I asked. She would only tell me that after people at a table were finished with their dessert. She wouldn't even ballpark it, and we were trying... More

My best came into town from NY and I took here out to dinner here. Everything was great. The food and drinks were delicious. The service was very good. I always eat here and I wasn't disappointed this time. I will be back!

My family and I visited WF this past Sunday. We had reservations for 7:15pm, celebrating my daughters 17th birthday. I have been raving to the 4 other family members on how great Wildfire is, so that's where my daughter chose to go for her bday dinner. We arrived at 6:45, got seated right away in the room off of the... More

I had lunch here 2 times and both times I found the service to be excellent! The waiters went way beyond my expectations to make the dining experience something to remember. My lunch portions were very generous and creative. Save room for their delicious desserts! They have quite a diversity of salads and gluten free options.

Always busy but worth the wait. If you like mussels do not miss the wood fired roasted mussels. The best ever.

Convenient to everything we would eat here again. We could walk to it from our hotel across the street. Make sure to get a reservation as it is a very busy place.

One of the best skirt steaks I've ever had. However, the oyster appetizer and caesar salad were average. Two types of baked oysters, both of which were bland. The caesar was also bland. French fries were mediocre, tasted like they sat under the heat lamp too long. Decent service, nothing special. Good cocktails.
