Went to watch the game. Love the ambiance but the food was pretty basic American baseball stadium food. I honestly was expecting more with being in a really nice area in downtown. The salad was a huge of bowl of just lettuce, the hot dog was really hard to eat with the massive bun it came with, tacos were the best choice. Drinks are good. I just wanted something a little more than hot dogs nachos and burgers. Maybe a chartcuterrie board or something more upscale that this place portrays

This is my second time dining at Birdies Resturant. My first visit was New Years Day for Brunch. I loved the omelet that was made for me at the speciality station. The food selections on the Brunch Buffett was just what my taste buds had in mind. On Saturday, Jan 27, I had the pleasure of Laura being my server. She was amazing. She was very personable. My friend and I were very grateful she was our waitress. Her short conversation with us was nothing more than delightful. She is an asset to your Resturant.
