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)

We ate here two times while visiting my husbands family in So. St. Paul. I had the walleye salad,it was delicious. We had the pizza also. We eat here when we stay at the Woodbury Hampton Inn. The food is yummy and the service is great. We will go back. Very friendly crew.

With 1/2 off appetizers / pizza, and $2 off drinks until 6, I'd say its a decent choice. A big bar and an open room concept, the patio may be the best seating option. Pizzas (looked good and seemed a bit thick crust for my taste. Nice selection of wine and beer draft choices, but the guacamole and shrimp stack... More

Hadn't been here for a number of years going back to the prior ownership. Now that a few of our other fav's in Woodbury have closed down we were looking for a place for casual dining. This place more than met our expectations. Plus, we got there early (5-ish) to avoid the crowds on a Saturday night, and had one... More
