Always a favorite place for my family. This time, the burgers were burned- including the buns- as in hockey pucks. The fries were bland and flavorless. There was no smores- an absolute MUST for my kids. The waitress was very nice but after I paid by credit card, she never left me a pen to sign the receipt. I waited for her to come back , but eventually had to go to the front desk to borrow a pen since we wanted to leave. All in all, not a great experience but we will try again since we always want to support local businesses.

I was a bit disappointed in the food this time. I frequent Grillfire and usually food is very flavorful however We tried the chicken with artichoke and my friend and I both agreed it had very little taste. We could taste flour, so id work on that dish. The shrimp app was delicious and always a go to for me. Disappointed I didnt see the chicken buffalo appetizer but I know menus are cut during this time.

Service was slow and waitress totally forgot someone's dessert. 4 people in one small booth with winter coats stuffed next to you was somewhat tight.. Other than that the food was delicious.

The food was good, especially the steak and crab cake on the restaurant week menu. I also liked their tomato and blue cheese salad and their Moscow Mule. The staff was very attentive and the atmosphere was relaxed and cozy.

Ate there on a Friday night at 5pm during Restaurant Week. The restaurant was relatively quiet and didn't start to get busy until around 5:30p. As more people arrived the restaurant volume started to become noticeably louder. The staff was very attentive and friendly. All courses of our three course meal came out in a timely manner. Each course was delicious and freshly made. The pacing and portion size of the three course meal is very filling. My wife and I had to bring food home. I really like that this restaurant gives out warm pretzels as an appetizer and cotton candy with your dessert. The restaurant has dark wood panelling and low lighting which can make it comfortable for eating but difficult for reading the menu. Overall this is a wonderful place for couples and families to come out to eat.

Felt very safe to dine at Grillfire. Food deliscious as always. However i did notice the cosmopolitans were a bit weak. We usually enjoy our cosmos at Grillfire. Sure hope pandemic isnt affecting the recipes.
