    Was looking for Prime Rib; by chance I visited Kirby's on Saturday (not knowing they just serve it only Fridays & Saturdays. I wasn't disappointed at all. It was great as well as the service (even though the place was packed & the rest of my dinner. I arrived 5 minutes before my reservation time & my table was waiting & ready (actually the only one free at the time); so making reservation with OpenTable was the wise thing to do & as always it worked great.

    I have eaten at this resaurant before and it has been consistently good. Thies experience has me convinced never to return. We had reservations for my birthday. When we arrived we were shown to a table and seated. 15 minutes no server had approached us to take drink orders. I asked another server for assistance our service did show up. We order two glasses of wine and waited another 15 minutes for the drinks to arrive. We were ready to order but again no server. Finally after 45 minutes in the restaurant we were able to place our order. Another 45 minutes passed and we still waited for our foor. I asked for the manager. Said we did not want our meal and wanted to pay for our drinks and leave. The food showed upand we sent it back.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 10/8/2014
    We went for a romantic night and got sat in the middle of the restaurant. We were sitting next to each other and had to yell to hear each other. They were happy to move us to a booth on the outside of the dining room. This was much better. We could hear each others. My steak was overdone but still good. My husbands steak was over done one one side and underdone on the other. This was the special smoked steak and it was phenomenal despite the cooking. Sides were alright, nothing spectacular. Would have like to had the option for smaller sides so we could order more than two. Staff was phenomenal. Cheesecake dessert for our anniversary was amazing!!!

    I had never been to Kirby's before, but expected a normal "steak house" type of dinner. I was wrong - it was fantastic! The wine list was very extensive and it took a bit to find one we wanted. My wife ordered a filet mignon and I ordered a special - a Mesquite smoked filet mignon...it was unbelievable. My wife had a bite and said it was hard to go back to her "normal" filet which was also very good and cooked perfectly. As I side I added the jalapeno and bacon mac and cheese along with the Jack Daniels Sweet potatoes that came with my steak. We were way to full for dessert but the ones that we saw being delivered to tables around us looked fantastic. I will definitely be back!

They have never been to a place like this before, and now plan on returning on their own. Thank you to the management and to our servers. They were excellent is every manner.

    Dined on 9/20/2014
    This place looks like, noise level like and tastes worse than a Denny's. It's definitely not a fine dining steakhouse even though the website and photos portray it to be. It looks outdated and the food is outdated. Our food was swimming in butter: appetizers, side dishes, and main courses. Our Redfish and Salmon both had at least 1/2 cup of butter poured directly on top. Our waiter explained zero during the ordering process. He also kept disappearing and when he finally showed back up he noticed we were not eating our food. We only ate the salad. He have us a "to go box and pointed out a bag" for "us to box up our food". We did not want to take it, as it was not edible. $179 later before tip, we will never go back nor refer anyone.

    I would say the dinner was average. I was expecting more for the price. For $150.00 for 3 guests with no drinks I expect more than average. The food was good, but was only lukewarm. The service was good but did not make me want to tip anymore than average. The last time we were there it was a wonderful experience. This time, we said we wish we had gone to Bob's or Ruth Chris. I just felt a little cheated for what we received verses what paid.

    Restaurant was obnoxiously loud. Band playing was overbearingly noisy. Bar was overrun with local wanna be crowd that was dressed for Walmart and shouting to fellow patrons as if in a saloon. The steaks were not bad but too much fat and low quality for the price. Wine was overpriced low quality selections. We paid for the equivalent of a steak dinner at The Palm and received above average Outback. This place tries with some effort to be so much more than it is. Much better available in the area for the price.

    Enjoyed Restaurant Week menu. Been to Kirby's many times, and it never disappoints. Service was attentive and caring; even the parking valet was super-friendly. Pork tenderloin was perfectly cooked and flavorful, and the dark chocolate tart with orange slice was nice ending to a well-prepared meal. Only minor complaint is over-priced wine menu, but must compliment the wine steward for not trying to "upsell" the wine offerings. Overall, a very enjoyable evening.

    Food was not good! The steak was red inside when I ordered well done and full of grissel. I ordered extra cheese on the side of the baked potato and did not get it. Waiter did not check to see how the food was until we had finished or I would have sent the steak back. It had been several years since we had been to Kirbys and we plan to never go back so I am sure it won't make any difference to them. I know Mr Kirby would be very unhappy with how his place had turned out.

    Made a reservation for our 26th anniversary. This was mentioned in the remarks of my online reservation. Extremely crowded and noisy in the room we were seated. We usually receive very attentive service, a $20.00 gift card for future use (which keeps me returning annually) and a free desert for our anniversary. None of that happened this time. What can I say?! I must just be spoiled rotten. We will probably try another establishment next year.

    Service and ambiance superb; however food was less than great. When spending what I consider pricey dining, I would think the food would be more than excellent. Started off with clam chowder,, which was not at all what I consider good! Very strange taste and unable to eat. Then when received the lobster and steak, the lobster was not sweet (even though very tender) and also had a hint of same taste as the chowder. My steak was what I consider burnt on the outside (very black charred). When I wanted an "out of this world" dining experience for this special occasion, I felt this fell extremely short of that.

    We had a party of 6. For the past 5 years we have spent an evening at Trulucks but gave your place a try. One guest had to send their steak back because it was too well done and he had ordered it rare. We were all completely finished with our meal by the time his steak arrived. My husband was very unhappy with his steak. The banana foster was HARD AS A BRICK!! THE WORSE DESSERT I HAVE EVER HAD!! We did not have a good experience!! However, Keith, our waiter was excellent and he brought extra blue cheese olives for our martinis. He made the night better but the food was very disappointing!!!

    Service....very, VERY slow. Our waitress came over many times (too many) to complain & apologize about the problems they were having with the machines, overcrowding and kitchen. We knew it was slow & gave up on pre-drink cocktails because 25 minutes in & they hadn't arrived yet. Next the food. Ceaser salad was dry, flavorless whole pieces of romaine with not much else. Shrimp in my surf & turf was very average. Now the steaks....ordered rare to med rare. They were all blackened, charbroiled on the outside & al overdone. One member of our party took his home for the dog. No time to send them back.Dessert, some banana thing, was like hard dry cake with a scoop of ice cream. I had to use my steak knife to cut thru it! Will not be returning

    My wife and I went for a night out. Service by our waiter was just ok, though other servers helped him. Since we ate at 5:30 on Saturday and it was not very busy, we were a bit curious. The food...the salad was very good, the bread very hot. Our steaks came out near perfect. Might be one of the most tender steaks I have ever had.

    Having been to Kirby's many times before, I jumped at the chance to go again with a friend; however, it was during "restaurant week" and every table was filled. With bar chatter & music, the noise level was way too loud for conversation. My steak was well-done when I ordered "medium". I did not send it back for fear that I wouldn't get food for quite awhile. So, I picked at it and ate the remainder of the meal. The mashed potatoes were really good, as usual. The waiter accomodated me with a lettuce & tomato salad vs. the three options on the special menu :) The chocolate desert looked prettier than it tasted; however, it was OK. My recommendation is to try them on a week night - not Friday or Saturday.

    Not as exciting and innovative as previous Restaurant Week at Kirby's. Desert choices were disappointing, appetizers were very good, and entrees were lackluster. We are frequent diner's and enjoy the regular menu and so we like to try the Restaurant Week menu for interesting options. This past week's option did not hit the mark.

    Staff were terrific. Allowing a change of tables to a more intimate table. Food was terrific and steaks cooked to our requests. Enjoyed a very nice dinner for a special occasion and staff was attentive not rushing us out the door but allowing us to visit and enjoy our dining experience. I certainly will return for another visit. Only distraction was the noise level which was very high this visit.
