Step back in time 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 1940s supper club experience of Wildfire.

Spending an evening at The Bank is like having an unforgettable dinner party at your best friend’s house. Delectable food, great wine, pleasant conversation, sparkling laughter and the soft clink of silver, china & glass. Home away from home – relaxed, friendly, but with the bonus of smart, attentive staff.

"Had lunch at Aliano's and have no complaints except the fact the offer one menu for lunch and dinner. They also do not let you use a gift certificate for the buffet. Overall, the food and service are good and I have no hesitation to return."

"I had the supper club menu and for 17.95 I thought it was a great deal. I had the filet medallions and the half order of the CA sushi roll and the mini dessert. The meal was an excellent value and I will return. I also would like to mention the restaurant offered triple points in the leye.com fdp so that was an added plus."

"I had lunch today at Benny's and have always wanted to eat here. The food and service were excellent and I thought considering the area the prices were great too. I had a grouper sandwich and it was between that and a steak sandwich. Waiter as mentioned did a great job. Will return in the future with no hesitation."
