Very nice restaurant attached to the Country Inn and Suites. The food and service at Bonfire's was excellent. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends and family.

So glad we didn't get the steaks. Got a pepperoni flatbread and fajita chicken wrap. The flatbread was okay but greasy, chicken wrap a downright disappointment. Not worth the price.

This might be one of the best hidden Happy Hour spots in town. Great bartender, drinks and appetizers. As Arnold would say"I'll be Back"!

Used to be be a TGI Fridays. Same type of fast food, but with a cool name. Drinks good, as you'd find anywhere. Bad location, hard to get to!

We stayed at Country Inn Suites and the restaurant is attached. We first ordered appetizers and brought them to our room. Later went to the restaurant and ate at the bar. Everything was good!

I like to go on Sunday afternoons. 1 free kid meal with each adult meal purchased. I like the whiskey steak the best. Always cooked perfect and the green beans are yummy. My kids enjoy the build your own pizza and build your own sundae....More

Delicious! Was a HUGE buffet for Mother's Day! If you left hungry, you weren't trying! MANY tables set up with food. The servers were funny & prompt with water, or stopped by often to ask if everything was OK. Highly recommend the place.
