Meh.

The food was good enough, but a bit pricey. The service was emotionless and the waitresses all seemed bored and a bit annoyed. The booth seats were pretty beat up, and the interior all rather dark and dingey. There are so many other pleasant, friendly places around locally to spend your dining... read more

We are in Bonfire about once a week. While I LOVE the wings, I have tried several things there and it is all delicious. All the meals are a good portion, including the kids meals. The pricing and atmosphere are great. HIGHLY recommend.

I have now ate at the Bonfire in Indian Trail a handful of times and while the food is usually just OK I keep waiting on this place to close or change. Maybe it's only dead at lunch? I have never seen more than about 6 people seated. Its not really a place I choose for lunch but we take... More

Bonfire has delicious food and a fun atmosphere. They have daily food and drink specials that make dinning a good value. This is a sports bar with lots of televisions that has less of a bar type feel. We have visited many times with our children to eat and watch games. There is something on the menu everyone likes.

Food is good, I have yet to have a bad meal there and I eat there at least once per week. Football fans and other Sunday brunch is the best. Good food good people

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!
