Comfortable, neighborhood kind of place

Bar and grill, handily took care of a dozen of us. Wine, beer, and drinks well-done, good salads, Bonfire tacos excellent. Didn't have dessert, but the sundae at the table next to us looked very good. Good service, reasonable pricing.

Four of us had lunch today. After our food arrived, our server announced that she was leaving to pick up a kid from day care. (One wrong order, but hey, no time to listen to that.) Food was mediocre, at best. Fortunately, we were not in a hurry -- after more than 40 minutes she returned. We had been visiting... More

What is going on at this place? They've gotten rid of all the good bartenders. They seem to be going thru managers and servers like water. Something must be bad for all of the turnover. This place used to be a good place to visit.....not anymore! Hey Corporate.....you'd best figure out what's going on here....I don't see this place holding... More

It's been a while since I've returned to Bonfire as I had only mediocre or less experiences there considering food and prices. However, my husband and I visited twice the past two weeks just for Happy Hour priced appetizers and cocktails. Reviewing appetizers only, - they were fantastic; great presentation, varied, unique, wonderful assortment and really tasty with extra touches!... More

Went back in March and received a great dessert for my birthday. My boys enjoyed their food of burgers. I had the salmon sandwich and it was very good. The couple we were with had steaks and they both said they were very good.

We have eaten at the Bonfire only a couple times, and I probably won't be going back. The food is just okay, and the overpriced alcoholic beverages are weak. We made our final trip on Valentine's Day. Picture this: The place was pretty crowded on Valentine's Day last year. After waiting almost an hour, they stuck my wife and I... More

We have been here for Easter Brunch and Mothers Day brunches. They offer a wide variety of food- each of which was only mediocre.

On my recent trip to Woodbury, I had lunch and dinner at Bonfire. The meals and service was very good. A nice atmosphere and decor for this sprawling space. The crowd was lively; filled with families. The happy hour is an excellent deal for drinks and appetizers. I'd rather come here than any Applebees, Chili's, etc. Stop in for a... More

Went here for Easter brunch. It was very good. Lots of items to choose from. From your traditional breakfast fare to Salmon. You could even order an omlet which was included in the price. The desserts were really good. You could also order a Bloody Mary or a Mimosa but not part of the brunch price. The only drawback was... More

Bonfire is our favorite place to eat as a family. The kids love to build their own pizzas, and they build a sundae for dessert. I have not had anything I do not like. The burgers are great along with the chicken. We like to go for 1/2 price pizzas and appetizers. The Bullbites are amazing. We also like to... More
