Job Details

Wildfire transports you to the lively spirit of a 1940s supper club. From the décor to the jazz music, Wildfire has the style and warmth that makes it perfect for an evening with friends or just the two of you. The vintage black and white photos complete the atmosphere at Wildfire. Dine in to take in the smells from the hearth oven or watch the chefs in action in the open kitchen. Relax in a comfy booth, indulge on a signature crusted steak, a delicious salad or oven roasted seafood, and sip on a martini flight, handcrafted beer or one of the fabulous cocktail creations.

American, Comfort Food

Upscale Casual

Part of Lettuce Entertain You Restaurants

With the lively spirit of a 1940s supper club and a menu that defines “American comfort food,” Wildfire has become an American favorite. Wood-fired ovens and spit roasters add a special flavor to the fresh, top-quality meats, seafood, poultry, and vegetables, while a broad range of cocktails and wines — several available in multi-glass tasting “flights” — add to the delight.

Specialties include seafood and steaks prepared with a variety of tasty crusts ranging from macadamia nuts to horseradish; prime ribs of beef, barbecued baby back ribs, fabulous salads, and a range of exceptional sandwiches are the regular fare. They’re supplemented with nightly and seasonal specials in every menu category. Giant baked, double-baked, and barbecue-rubbed sweet potatoes, creamed spinach, and other sides add to the pleasure.

Wildfire’s desserts are special, too, with great individual and full-size pies, ice-cream and pudding creations, and fresh-fruit-based treats.
