Description: 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.

The service here was terrific, from the hosts at the front to the servers. The food was really good there was a huge selection. You could satisfy any craving. Would definitely go back.

We were leery to try it because the prices seemed so high; however our friends had recommended it so we gave it a try yesterday for our anniversary dinner. So glad we did! The prices are high for a reason, top quality food! Starting with my side salad...loved it! Lots of extras on it like cucumber and egg. Both my... More

We brought some Asian friends here because they wanted some good US steaks. We stayed away from the most famous steak houses in an effort to stretch our entertainment budget. They were not disappointed! Wildfire offers a relaxed semi-casual contemporary dining experience at a reasonable price. We sat in the lounge area which had a lot of booths. The filets,... More

I took a group of 16 people here for dinner, after hearing great things about the restaurant. The service was excellent, and they accommodated us with individual bills for each person. The reviews on the food was different from person to person, the comment that I heard most often is that their steaks were overcooked and not cooked the way... More

We made reservations as we were dining on a Friday night. The ambiance was old world with darker wood and a 1930's decor. I ordered prime rib and red mashed potatoes, our daughter had three petite filets: one with horseradish crust, one with potato crust, and one with garlic Parmesan crust,creamed spinach side, my husband had the ribeye. All of... More

Great atmosphere,excellent service. The steak was one of the best I have had anywhere. Menu was balanced without too many offerings. Portions were large but not enormous. The presentation was classical with sides served separate from main course. Desserts were nothing special, usual fare from supply houses, over sweet and high caloric content. Go here for the steak, forget the... More

I've wanted to try Wildfire for a long time, but was a little concerned that the prices might be beyond my budget. I was pleasantly surprised to find there are some "more affordable" options on the menu including salads, pizzas, sandwiches along with a few chicken entrees. The steaks, seafood, ribs and pork chops are pricy, but for a once-in-awhile-special... More

I have been going to Wildfire for years and have rarely been disappointed. The service is phenomenal each and every time! Their regular menu is always delicious but the specialties of the day are fantastic. The soups are always so tasty and different, this week was cream of artichoke! So delicious.

The reviews said this was a moderately priced steak house, I found it to be extremely expensive for the lack of food and service. We had to send back a beer, my steak was over cooked and we had to send back the side of potatoes for being cold. The manager did allow us to have dessert on him but... More
