This place is great. If you are looking for a loud jukebox and a million televisions to distract you from the company you keep, stay away from this place. No jukebox. No televisions. If you want anything to eat, go ahead and order out because they do not serve food here. Well, you can grab a bag of chips if you want too. This place is all about great beer and conversation. Formerly, the Union House, this bar still has the antique bar that dates back to the Civil War. There are 18 taps that seem to continually rotate craft beers and there is an ample supply of bottled beers on hand...domestic and imports (+150). There is an extensive list of the Belgian variety as well. It has a stocked bar with an extensive amount of whiskey and vodka. Ask the bartender about building your own whiskey flight Make sure to check out the chalkboard for seasonals/specials as well. Great bar!

The food was very, very good. The service was very good as well. I had expected that my vegetable would be asparagus; however, the server was not aware that the restaurant was out of asparagus. I was a little disappointed. The replacement grilled green beans were cooked just right and was very good!! The portions and prices were reasonable. The Bonfyre American Grille is very much worth patronizing! My family will be celebrating my Husband's 79th Birthday tonight 12/29/2009.
The burgers here are amazing - grilled to perfection with fresh toppings on a delicious roll. The atmosphere is much more sophisticated than Dotty's old location on the square. Most of the fun "junk" is gone and replaced with plasma TV's. They also have waiters now (before you would go pick up your food when your number was called). This is a popular place - you'd better have reservations if you want to eat here before a game at the Kohl Center.
