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.

Took my team here in May, group of about 15. Had a great meal, with a variety of entrees, everyone enjoyed. The wine list is very solid and the cocktails were up to snuff. Even the deserts were nicely done. Dinner took a while, but it was a big group and we were very well attended to. Would definitely go... More

I have been to Wildfire of many occasions, one particular was my birthday. I did not make reservations but expected to wait at least 1 1/2 hours to be seated, after waiting for an hour I checked with the hostess and she informs me there would be about 2 more hours before my party could be seated, needless to say...

Visited with a group of 8 on a Tuesday night and the place was packed. Sure sign of a good spot. Wide menu selection for both food and wine. Our group was seated promptly. Service was fantastic. Mussels and shrimp/crab bisque were very good, as were the bacon wrapped scallops. Filet was very good and the prime rib was awesome.... More

We had a large group of out of towners. Food was very good although a little over priced. The filet Mignons with the flavored crusts were the star. Get the medley. Good wait staff, good with a large group, good food. Winner!

Great luncheon choice. I've been to quite a few of the local Wildfire facilities and they never disappoint. Lunch was perfect and Mary Frances our server, made it very special. Choices included the handmade black bean burger with a substitute of roasted veggies. The best burger ever. My friend selected the grilled chicken club, again opting for the veggies in... More
