Enjoyed happy hour with friends. Nice to have a good portion of food for under $10. Good flavor. Wings came out cold but they quickly fixed the issue.

My wife and I went to celebrate Valentine's Day to this location. My wife likes this restaurant I'm not a a big fan. I'd like to see more options in their menu. Food is usually good although a little pricey (maybe is the fact that I don't really love this place)

Well, we ordered food. Waitress really didn't know menu. It took forever. Daughters item came out wrong. Because we waited so long they comped it which was nice but very uneventful hamburger after the wait. She forgot drinks and extra mayo which was to liven up the dryness. Added steak to my Caeser Salad and was tough as shoe leather.... More

Great drink section, cocktails, and appetizers. Awesome happy hour that we stumbled upon. Disappointing main courses though, far below the bonfire standard. Dry noodles, sloppy food, etc.

Lunch was good in both taste and price. Hamburger very filling with lots of fries. Fireplace location warmed us on a very cold,snowy day.

Dined out here with friends last week. Relaxing experience with the fireplaces and rustic decor. I was very hungry so ordered the beef medallions in cognac cream sauce, so very delicious. Others in the party had chicken with signature green beans, a big hit!, a tasty burrito and a good burger. I like the atmosphere of this restaurant with its... More

I was looking for a place to hang out that was warm and comfortable. This place has a few fires, including one big one. I was there about 9:30 PM and requested to be by the big fire. They were reluctant but sat us there. Another worker came by asking if we wanted to sit by a tiny fire. It... More

We have been going to Axels for over 10 years, and has been our go-to place for birthdays, family dinners, date nights and especially happy hour drop ins! But I have to say, the quality of the food and the selection on the menu, over the years, has gone down, while the price keeps going up. We hadn't been back... More
