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.

a place always busy - is a place you want to try

I have visited the Schaumburg and Lincolnshire locations.. and have never had a bad meal. Yes, it can be somewhat pricey - but the menu's and food selection is consistently good. If planning to try Wild Fire, try visiting when it's not a peak time (other than typical lunch time or dinner)

Completely enjoyed once again my dining experience at Wildfire. One big thing I appreciate is I have sensitivity to Gluten and this place has it covered! GF Rolls w/ butter - complete GF menu- and the best GF chocolate molten cake for dessert. Love the ambiance and martinis- also had the fish of the day with mashed potatoes- - just... More

After a ten month hiatus due to being served wine in filthy glasses at dinner, we returned for lunch a week ago. After a LONG wait, we were served our drinks. My wife was away from the table when they came, so I took the opportunity to removed some crusty white particles from the base of her martini glass. (Seriously??... More

Sure, Wildfire is a chain. Yes, not the first place one would think to go as a vegetarian!!!! But in the end, there was plenty to choose from and all of it very good. The pretzels were tasty with the different dips. Not quite German style, but good nonetheless. The kale salad was flavorful, bright and fresh. A delight on... More

I have eaten many times at Wildfire, most often in Lincolnshire. In my recent visit in January they live up to their typical Wildfire standards. The atmosphere is typical Wildfire, cookie cutter layout. But I find the atmosphere warm and inviting with an ample bar area for either drinking or combined with eating if you do not have a reservation.... More

Took my wife to Wildfire last week we have been there many times before and as usual the food & service was GREAT! I am very particular on how I like my food prepared in the way of cooking and seasoning and they did it just as requested. I ordered a filet medium rare no salt or any other seasoning... More

My wife and I dined at Wildfire, Schaumburg prior to taking in a movie at Woodfield. From the greetings at the door to their prompt seating and respectful timing of the courses to our schedule, the evening was nothing but outstanding. The onion bread and pumpernickel raisin nut loaves were delicious, as well as the cedar plank salmon and perfectly... More

My lady and I went there excited because it was sold out pretty much on Friday January 23rd. The waitress (Sarah) was excellent but the food was average. My girls steak was like a salsbury steak you get in the frozen section and my New York Strip was so under cooked I ate the outside. My girlfriends Au Gratin potatoes... More

Here's a restaurant where there are no surprises. The food and service are always good. Fish, Alaskan cod crusted. Petite filets cooked exactly right.
