We celebrated my sister's bridal shower today, 9.14.14 at the Bonfire in Woodbury. We had 28 guests, and unfortunately were crammed into their private room. Each long table had 14 chairs, and were so crammed together, we had to push our chairs back all the way just to get out. When I reserved the room, they informed me that the... More

Ate here in the bar area during happy hour while in town on business. $2 off on drinks and half price appetizers and pizzas or flatbreads was too good a deal to pass up. The walleye bites were good as was the 3 sausage flatbread. I also enjoyed a couple of local draft beers, one a Surly IPA & the... More

Hand crafted drinks are a good call. Always pleased with the food and service. I really like their lettuce wraps and flatbreads.

Next to the Hampton Inn so went over for dinner. Had the Bonfire classic burger which is burger with a slice of smoked ham, mushrooms, roasted red peppers and Swiss cheese with chipotle mayo. Awesome burger, cooked perfect and tasted fantastic. The service was slow, she really had too many tables to do an effective job. The place could have... More

Bonfire offers a very eclectic menu with signature dishes, gluten free options, vegetarian options, and woodfire selections. Members of our group had cedar plank salmon, walleye tacos, rotisserie chicken chopped salad and a grilled Philly cheese steak wrap. There was contentment among us all as everything tasted wonderful. The patio looked nice for eating even though we did not take... More

Décor was western-like, and airy(?) Meaning tables and chairs were comfortable and not squeezed in right next to each other. Lighting was not too dark. Menus were readable without having to squint or use the table candle. The variety of menu choices was impressive for a steak place. Steaks and burgers, we ordered were huge and delicious. The children's menu... More

Celebrating with a large group of 12 can be a challenge, but with service this poor it was a very unpleasant experience. It started with no drinks being offered to the first families to arrive, so we missed happy hour pricing. Seemed like they were waiting until after 6 to come to our table. Food was ordered, but arrived late... More

We love Bonfire! The food is delicious and bascially "to die for". From salads to burgers, pizza to dessert this is the hottest place to dine in Woodbury. My mouth waters just thinking about the moment we will eat there again. Just try it, you'll like it.

Nice atmosphere, decoration, friendly staff. Not cheap, but reasonable prices and worth the quality. Take a look at their online menu. I put pictures & comments of what we ordered. Staff was friendly, but service was so so, rather slow even when the place was empty (only 2 tables)
