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.

Excellent food and amazing service

I had the horseradish crusted filet and it was cooked to perfection. I have been to this location about 5 times and every time my meal is excellent. Would highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion.

Have had both the bone in ribeye and the bone-in filet...both are wonderful. I do recommend ordering one level undercooked to what you want, for med-rare order rare and so on. Grilled veggies are great side, desserts are excellent. Atmosphere good for business. Order espresso or Americano, coffee is a bit under. Great match of price to quality, will be... More

This is my favorite restaurant when I come to town. Their stormy night martini is by far like no other I've ever had. I make sure to stop in and treat myself to one or 2 of these special drinks every time I'm in Schaumburg! Not to mention their food and wait staff is superb!!! See y'all soon!

Been to a couple of Wildfires in suburban Chicago. They are all great performers. The menu lacks some imagination but if you are looking for a great steak in a posh environment accompanied with great service you can't really go wrong.

The service was great but the place is dated and tired. It is supposed to be like a 1940s supper club but it is worn around the edges. The food was a mixed bag too. The pork chops were perfect. The bread baked with onions was funky. Th beet and goat cheese salad was saturated with "vinaigrette" which was actually... More

I recently reviewed this restaurant's Oakbrook location and raved about the Halibut. We recently were in the Schaumburg area and stopped at its Schaumburg location on Higgins Road. You probably won't believe this, but the dish was even better at this location. Our party of four all ordered the halibut and the raves continued throughout the meal. It's a can't... More

Pretty much your standard meat and fish house. Food quality was ok but nothing out of the ordinary with prices on the higher side. Wine list looks impressive but they were out of the first five selections.

Wow, the food at this restaurant was mind blowing as was the service. The steak was tender and juicy. My husband I seriously considered ordering a second one.

Staying in one of the hotels nearby, I wanted a decent dinner where I could eat at the bar since I was solo. The service was good as was the burger. I also had a good cocktail with a generous pour. The bar was busy and lively, but not crazy crowded. Definitely better than some of the other chain restaurants... More

We enjoyed the excellent beef. Both the Shrimp and Crab Bisque and the French Onion Soup were spot on. The Au Gratin Potatoes were rich and cheesy. We also found a favorite wine at a good price.
