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.

Outstanding for a business lunch!

The salad topped with strip steak was outstanding. Fresh lettuce, tender beef, just the right amount of dressing. The bread they serve with your meal is always fresh as well, and the servers were attentive without being intrusive.

We were exhausted from shopping at the mall and needed a good meal to end our day. We arrived around 5pm on a Monday and were seated right away. Service was tremendous. Our meals were fantastic. I had a Parmesan crusted steak and my wife had the steak and blue cheese salad. To die for, she said. Glass of wine,... More

While in the area on a business trip we are at Wildfire. First night, we were without a car and our hotel recommended Wildfire as best within walking distance. From the salads to the prime rib and seafood, the food was fantastic and service was great. 2nd night we were part of a larger group and ended up here again.... More

My wife and I have eaten here many times. We have never had a less than average food item. This restaurant always puts out consistently good food. Excellent service, pleasant atmosphere, and a wide variety on the menu make this a regular eating establishment for us. My wife raves about their prime rib; while I enjoy their cedar plank salmon,...

This restaurant has great food and great service. Typically when I travel I will eat at a lot of Chain better steak restaurants. And I felt the value and the food here were as good if not better than most of them. It's a great Place for a business meeting as they did not rush us through dinner. My only... More

Food was amazing, prices are a little high, but well worth it. Make sure you make reservations, very hard to get into during peak times.

Wildfire - by far is one of the best meals in Schaumburg. Time and time again never a bad meal. Not cheap but well worth it.

We eat at wildfire so often our names are on a plaque at the bar but the other day we tried what I believe is new to the menu - kale and spinach salad. I ordered mine with filet on it [only $4 more] and the meat was deliciously marinated and complimented the salad well. A nice change from the... More

There is no such thing as a bad meal at Wildfire! They have a great menu, and everything tastes delicious! You can eat healthy -start with one of the soups, followed by one of the salads, (the spinach salad is awesome) and follow it up with a berry crisp dessert (half-size minus the ice cream) and leave very full on...
