Description: Step back in time 60 years to when going out for dinner meant something really special. From the decor to the jazz music, Wildfire has the style and warmth that makes it perfect for celebrating with friends or a quiet evening for two. The extensive menu features broiled steaks and chops, wood-roasted seafood and roasted meats, all prepared in an open kitchen. Signature dishes include Horseradish Crusted Filet Mignon, Macadamia Nut Crusted Halibut, Wildfire Chopped Salad and Cedar Planked Salmon. So order a signature martini or one of our many wines by the glass, then sit back and enjoy the quintessential 1940s supper club experience of Wildfire.

“Outstandng food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

I dined at Wildfire on a Saturday night and the place was packed. To me that is a great sign of the quality of the place. The calamari was fantastic and I had a filet on the bone that was cooked to perfection. The atmosphere was nice and the service was top notch. I highly recommend this place for a great dinner!

“Lively”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

Food and service are always top notch. The Baby Back Ribs are a great choice. You also can't miss with any of the steak or seafood entres. The bar is always lively. If you don't have reservations during the week, be prepared to wait. Reservations on Friday and Saturday are a must.

“Great for a splurge dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Excellent food, wonderful wait staff -- this is where we go when we want to splurge a bit. Fish and beef dishes are excellent.

“Family Favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

This is probably our families favorite place in the area. I have never had bad service, the food is amazing (filet trio - YUMMY). It's great for a group of friends/family, a dinner for two - even if you bring the kids for a nice dinner it works out really well.

“Always crowded - make a reservation!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Wildfire is always crowded and strikes me as the american eatery to go. It is always crowded and I believe one needs to make a reservation. It is a bit noisy, too.

Parking is available outside in the lot with grocery stores and some other strip mall items.

it is worthwhile a visit!
