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.

Wildfire is always a loud, big portioned, delicious food joint, and this location is no different. Don't go for a fast lunch as that won't happen. Go for good food and the time that takes.

Usually a favorite for my husband and I, even when dining with 4 or 5 guests, but going with a party of 12 proved to be to much for the waitstaff and kitchen. Some entrees came out wrong and/or cold. Side dishes were forgotten in the kitchen. Drinks took more then 20 minutes. The food is generally very good, but... More

Had dinner with my daughter and we both ordered the petite filet medium rare. Her steak came well done. Waiter said sorry they read my ticket wrong. I ate mine as it was warm.

I have been going to Wildfire since the first one opened in Chicago, in fact having been at one of the opening parties. I loved it then and have continued to do so. Food is really good, really consistent and service staff cheerful and well trained. My wife and I have eaten at almost all of their locations and consistence... More

I order the buffalo steak which I found just succulent. Everyone else in my party just loved their food. They have a children's menu. The service was excellent. The decor was just lovely.
