This restaurant is awesome !!Consistently wonderful food no matter what I order. The Bloody Mary mix is awesome and hopefully is still home-made. I really enjoy the prime rib when they have it (call first). The smashed potatoes are amazing and get the green beans that are equally as wonderful !

We sat on the patio for drinks and dinner. My drink was well mixed and my wife got 2 for 1 on the chardonnay. The service was pretty good and the food was too.

When I worked nearby I would frequent with my after work gang. Haven't been here in a couple years. This time was as consistent and solid as ever. Nicely mixed drinks, Lettuce rollups make a nice light dinner and of course the Bull Bites are med rare gems of another world. Nothing fancy but cozy, clean and mellow atmosphere makes... More

Stopped in on a Monday to catch the happy hour specials of 1/2 price wine. Waitress was knowledgable about the limited wine selection, I agreed with her selection & enjoyed the reduced price. We had Walleye bites & flatbread pizza with sausage mushrooms & green olives. Yum, great fresh taste. I didn't try the spicy wings but they were a... More

1st time at bonfire. Wednesday night,and the place was packed. 35-45 min. wait. We opted to sit at the bar. Bartenders were friendly, but they were very busy, we were waited on quickly, and they took our order fast, but then we kinda were forgotten about. The food took 40 min or so to get and refills were hard to... More

My husband and I were passing through on 35E, saw a sign for a chain restaurant, and exited. When we didn't see the chain, we decided that Bonfire looked attractive and interesting. We weren't disappointed. My husband had a Minnesota Walleye sandwich with a dinner salad. The salad was fresh and cold. The fish was lightly battered, golden brown, but... More

What a great steak. Charred and Medium Rare all at once. The waitress, Colleen, was relaxed, funny and attentive. They have a gluten free menu but even altered a side dish that was not on there for me. We enjoyed a corner booth which was out of the way and comfy. The restaurant is a bit open for a lot... More

First we have eaten there several times over past few years. Even had wedding reception there for my daughter a few years back in their private room and that was excellent. (That is what started us going there.) Took my sister and her husband there for their 55th wedding anniversary and was excited over their pork chops that, plus there... More

I went here with some old friends for lunch. Our server was quite attentive & they put our group off to the side which we appreciated. The lunch was just okay - not the best but certainly not bad food. The menu is quite large so there is a choice for everyone. There are so many restaurants in the area... More

Happy hour is great with drinks and apps-- we love the wood fired pepperoni pizza, we have tried the pepperoni flat bread but like the dough better for the pizza. Chicken wings are tasty as well as the chicken lettuce wraps. The chicken cream cheese wontons were not my favorite tho too spicy. They offer soup and salad too for... More
