If you are looking for a good restaurant to eat at, then pass this by. If you are looking for some drinking and partying and music (sometimes) then I might recommend it. Food is average. Service is below par. I didn't expect a lot but others might. This is truly just a place to get some appetizers and a cold... More

The outdoor patio is very nice located away from constant traffic area, however, have not been there on weekend nights when they have entertainment. The interior however is quite dark and includes a bar which is fine if you don't mind that type of atmosphere. The food was very good, especially the meatloaf. Service was fine, would definitely not hesitate... More

The first time I ate here was right after it opened and the food was good along with the service. The last 2 times I ate here, I was disappointed with the food and service. The food wasn't that good and the service was poor. I haven't been back.

Firstly, let me say I've eaten here a few times, and the most recent two or three times have been great! Not today however. Maybe it was my own mistake, as I ordered an appetizer. Loaded nacho's. They were really good, and big enough for 4-6 people! Not so great was the fact that the entrees arrived when we were... More

The food is good there, they have good service, and the entertainment on the weekends is a great place to go relax and have fun and not have to go all the way to Charlotte uptown!

Went there to eat after watching a movie. My husband & I sat at the bar. The bartender/waitress was snobby & service was horrible. I asked the bartender/waitress what kind of seafood was in their seafood soup & she had no clue. I wanted a soup for the cold night but after getting a clueless answer I ended up ordering... More

Good food, family atmosphere and responsive staff make this a great place to eat. We dine here about once per month. Family members gave us a gift card which we waited too long to use since we realized what we had been missing once we came. The ribs are the only thing my wife gets, but there are plenty of... More

Occassionally we at dine at Bonfire about 3x a month for family time. The atmosphere is nice, the food is always delicious! I love the surf and turf specials! My service on this particular night was PERFECT!. (other nights the service was not terrible! but I'm going to keep this review positive.) Our waiter this time was excellent. He was... More

My second visit here was much better than the first. I was very apprehensive about coming back. The first time, we had tuna which was dry and bland in taste, and cajun chicken which was watery and again pretty tasteless. The place was empty, and the service was bad. HOWEVER, my second visit was a little different. Firstly, it was... More
