We love a date night at the Woodfire! Great wine & drinks, good service & amazing food. Our favorites are the chop salad & lobster bisque, crab rangoon flatbread & the loaded baked potato. We have had so many tasty meals here.

Very nice atmosphere, waiter, food and all the trimmings. We had the Tasmanian Salmon & a the special of the day, a seafood platter, with side salads and desserts, Lava chocolate cake with ice cream and a piece of blueberry cheesecake. The food was very rich in taste, and left us surprisingly full for too many hours. If you have... More

This restaurant met our expectations for a steakhouse. The decor was elegant (although maybe warm!) but comfortable. Our service was friendly and prompt. We were pleased to find so many gluten free options on the menu. Our steaks were cooked nicely and seasoned well. The prices were appropriate for a good steakhouse.

We were in town for my son's graduation so we wanted a very nice dinner. They had a great selection of appetizers, sides, and deserts that we shared with the table and the main courses were very good, everyone went for either steaks or prime rib. I think the stars of the show were the crab rangoon flatbread and (surprisingly)... More

Great atmosphere and food. We were there on a Thursday night and there weren't many others in the restaurant. Waitress provided great suggestions on appetizers and wine. Avocado rolls we delicious! Au gratin potatoes were ok. Petite fillet was enjoyed by most of our party.

We had an early dinner at 5:30pm. An early dinner menu was available at US$19.95 each with a salad and a main course. I ordered roasted half chicken which was very delicious - there were peaches at the bottom and the chicken was very juicy, tender with good taste. My colleagues ordered steak and they said it was good too.

Had four world travelers in for a meeting and we visited Woodfire. The entire group couldn't sing enough praises about the meal and the wine pairing. Once again the restaurant delivered a five star experience. Sum it up best...one guest commented the meal alone was worth the four hour flight to Dubuque from the west coast.

I went to Woodfire after I lost my shirt playing John Wayne slots in the Diamond Jo. The maître d' initially sniffed at my attire (Carhartt buttondown, fashionable jeans) but decided to seat me and the missus at an out-of-the-way table.
