“Best Little Secret in Dubuque!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2011

Returning to Dubuque after a 6 year absence with some trepidation about the availability of quality eating establisments, we were delighted to "discover" the Woodfire Grill. From the beautiful and inviting decor, to the outstanding and friendly staff, to the delectible menu, we are excited to now be regulars. Some of our favorites are the lobster macaroni and the ribeye, but the bar has expanded it's wine and liquor selection that surpases all others in town. Thank-you to the Diamond Jo Casino, who would have thought such a great little secret would be in a gambling establishment.

“wonderful atmosphere, food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

Once again we were very pleased with our experience at the Woodfire Grill. We had fun sampling the wine at the wine bar. All of the over 20 wines that are available to try are sealed so you always get a great tasting wine. And you can count on a good single glass too, not having to worry that the bottle has been sitting open for a week. We had great appetizers and the lobster bisque was full of lobster chunks. Great beef tenderloin tips with a just right spicy sauce. The atmosphere with the fireplaces burning throughout the room make it cozy and warm. Always great, friendly, knowledgeable staff.
