I have been several times at Wildfire in Schaumburg for lunch and always the experience was great. I must highlight the "Prime Rib French Dip", which is simply fantastic.

Love the décor of this place with the black and white photos plus rich paneling. The food is excellent here plus the service. You would never have to ask about the specials they are having and they have many of them. The steaks are cooked to perfection. We loved the dessert that all four of us share. You get four... More

When I'm in Schaumburg, I love coming to Wildfire. It has the vibe of a Morton's or Ruth Chris steakhouse, but for about 25% of the cost. It's busy & bustling, with wonderful service. My filet was perfect, the baked potato huge, and the salad crisp and fresh. Nice outdoor patio. Great service that you would expect in a more... More

I have to say the shrimp/crab bisque was incredible. The salmon was good and the wild rice was good, but that soup was awesome. This was a lunch with a business partner who also had the salmon, but had mashed potatoes and salad in lieu of soup and rice and both were excellent. The desserts were huge, but delicious. The...

The restaurant was nice. A bit over priced for a family of 6, but they offered many options on their menu to please each of us. Menu on website must have shown lunch pricing, about twice as much when we sat down to order. Would recommend for date night.

My mother is from the Chicago area and wanted as she said "a good mid-west steak." We were staying down the road and saw this nearby, and am I glad we went there! We reserved a table via OpenTable app on the plane and went to hotel, dropped our stuff and went to eat. The atmosphere was very relaxed and... More

what a pleasant surprise. Everyone mentioned we should go and eat here and know I can say the same. Steaks, cuts and cooking are really superb. Nice atmosphere and selection of wines too!

We were there for a late (8:30PM) Saturday night dinner. I'd guess the place was only half full. The food and service was great. Our waiter actually knew something about the wines offered. I had one of the nightly specials, Halibut, it was tremendous!

Just ate there tonight for the first time. Business casual attire, nobody in t-shirts or jeans. I ordered the horseradish crusted filet mignon. It was very good. My girlfriend had the prime rib sandwich and it was excellent. We put our food order in and in less then 15 min we had our food. Waitress was great! Recommend making a... More

Step back in time 60 years to when going out for dinner meant something really special. From the decor to the jazz music, Wildfire has the style and warmth that makes it perfect for celebrating with friends or a quiet evening for two. The extensive menu features broiled steaks and chops, wood-roasted seafood and roasted meats, all prepared in an open kitchen. Signature dishes include Horseradish Crusted Filet Mignon, Macadamia Nut Crusted Halibut, Wildfire Chopped Salad and Cedar Planked Salmon. So order a signature martini or one of our many wines by the glass, then sit back and enjoy the quintessential 1940s supper club experience of Wildfire.
