This quaint place offers the best steak you will ever cut into and the most delicious lobster bisque outside of Maine! The wait staff is kind, professional and personal. My all time favorite spot for a delicious special meal!

We came here for a farewell dinner for our daughter since we were leaving her in Dubuque for college. She didn't believe a steak in Iowa could be as good as, if not better, than a steak in LA... until she tasted it! Amazing fresh taste, generous sizes, wonderful flavors. The husband had salmon that was also amazing. I had... More

The food is very good. The service is excellent. The prices not bad considering the quality. The flavors are unique. I really liked the soups and main courses. I will come back for more.

Had a wonderful meal at Woodfire last night! Bartender made a drink that's no longer on the menu, but so delicious. Lindsey was a very good server. Lobster and steak we shared was the best. Thanks for making our 29th anniversary so nice!!

Woodfire is not a weekly treat; well if I could afford it......maybe. If I could get a double order of the Chilean seabass with miso glaze...I'd be a much happier guy. They do this fish right! I'd never eat lobster again. The Cedar planked salmon arrives still smoking and is good as well. Having lived on both coasts, good seafood... More

we were comped 2 dinners for my husbands birthday while visiting and playing at the casino. Not a busy Thursday night which might have attributed to the average quality of the food. It seemed as though things were sitting for a fair amount of time as there were not many people eating there. The salad bar was fresh, desserts were... More

Beautiful atmosphere, with cool fireplaces all around. The food is very good but on the steeper end as far as price. Looking for a romantic getaway with a loved one? You will find it here.

Our waiter, Dahan, was absolutely fantastic! He made our evening very enjoyable. We loved the house made tomato preserve on the warm house made bread. We could have made a meal of that alone! The french onion soup, lobster bisque, and chopped salad were very tasty. I liked the idea of two size options for the salads; I got the... More
