I planned my daughter's 18th bday dinner here because we had never been and receivedmany recommendations. I'm so glad it lived up to our expectations. We started with the appetizer sampler that included morroccan steak bites, garlic fries and calamari. Followed by the bone in Rib Eye, filet mignon and Mary's chicken and was it the best we've ever had! The birthday girl and her sister tried the truffle mac and cheese, delicious! Last we ended with a mascapone cheesecake. Lastly, it is on the pricey side but you get what you pay for but this fed us through the next day! I don't recommend waiting, do try it now!!

This is no House of Prime Rib. Prime rib was wood smoked, which I did not care for. Creamed spinach was bland. 10 oz. lobster tail was fine, as was the filet. I had made a special note on the Open Table form that it was our anniversary. They did not make any mention of that to us. I understand that with things just re-opening they may not be one their game. I would rather go to Flemings before I would come back to Birks.

Birk's has been a long time favorite. Now open to limited indoor dining. But daughter wanted al fresco to celebrate her mother's birthday. Three of us ordered the weekend signature smoked prime rib. Execution was excellent with medium rare generous cut cooked perfectly with mild horseradish. Sides of creamed spinach and mashed potatoes were fine compliments. Daughter ordered lobster tail and was completely satisfied. There service was spot on. After a long absence, Birk's hasn't lost a step and everything was spot on. Oh yeah, also kid friendly.

Birk’s is Burk’s. It is a classic. Very reliable high-quality has stood the test of time even with all this Covid crap. It was a pleasure to be there again and have indoor dining. I only ordered a cheesesteak so it was not a gourmet opportunity but this place is so solid it’s very impressive.

We hadn't been out just the two of us for nearly two years! We came to Birk's because we have had great experiences in the past. We felt very comfortable and safe as they seemed very covid ready. Our food was delicious and they brought us desserts into he house to help us celebrate our anniversary!

Birk's does not disappoint! The professional wait staff ( None of this silliness: " HI I'm Stacey and I'll be helping you out tonight!") and perfect food made for a lovely evening.
We are so happy to see Birk's back again with nice outdoor seating with warm heaters nearby. Thank you Birks, for being a spark of life in our Covid days.
