They said I needed reservation for sat sun. I was turned away sat night at 5 pm. Made reservations for Sunday at 5 pm and never even asked for reservation. Confusing

Service was wonderful, food was surprisingly very good. We celebrated Valentines with two teenagers, they loved the pretzels and the cotton candy. We will definitely be back.

I always choose Grillfire for my family special occasions. Valentines Day, Birthdays, etc. Never fails to impress. Food is always excellent. Love the pretzels and the cotton candy. Great for kids. COVID precautions were very nicely done.

Didn’t receive what I wanted, when I brought it to the managers attention she told me they didn’t have anymore so that’s why they just gave me whatever they wanted to

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.

Love the soft pretzel appetizers! Onion rings with mozzarella sticks were also fantastic (not soggy, super crispy).

I had the open faced chicken cordon bleu special, it was really good. My daughter had the mac and cheese which was also good (I tried it myself). Husband had steak cooked perfectly.

Another great Sunday Brunch outdoors at Grillfire! Even with the overcast and light rain we were well protected from the elements and sitting outside under a heat lamp on the covered porch. The food was, as usual, excellent! The service top notch (and all we’re wearing masks). Highly recommend giving it a try. They also offer indoor seating.

What a delightful place. Food was really good, the staff was attentive, friendly and patient, and this was important as we were treating two of our grandchildren (4&5) to dinner.
Most importantly we felt SAFE.
Give Grillfire a try, I don't think you will be disappointed.

Met some good friends for an outdoor socially distant Sunday brunch. Would certainly give this place 5 stars!!! More if available. They have set up socially distant tables with a couple of heaters that made for a very enjoyable setting. All staff in masks. The food was excellent!! Complimentary Bloody Mary or mimosa with brunch!! Many choices and very no problem with substitutions!! Everything was great!! So glad they brought brunch back!! Manager frequently outside walking around
Making sure all was ok. Asking if we needed anything else. Can’t wait to go again!!!!
