We always enjoy our visits to Firebird's and have been trying to introduce our friends to it ever since they moved to North Carolina. This weekend, we had the opportunity and they were not disappointed. In fact, they wanted to know when we would be returning. I received an offer via email today and plan to call them later to arrange another dinner date.

Firebirds started the meal with excellent bread that was right out of the oven. A BLT salad was next and a blue cheese dressing was selected- the salad was great and quite large. We ordered the baby back ribs that came with a tasty barbecue sauce and we selected a loaded baked potato as our side. We have been to Firebirds several times - it is one of my favorite places to eat!!!

We had reservations for Veteran's Day and the restaurant was extremely busy.. We were seated promptly and our server Isaiah was wonderful and quite personable. . .My husband was thanked for his service as a vet by the manager, Jeff, and had his picture taken. We had grilled salmon and pineapple chicken, which were both quite good.

Disappointed this time....We've been going to Firebirds for years, especially to celebrate birthdays and our anniversary. This time the service was a bit less 'special', just ho hum, not so attentive. Plus our seating (half booth/half chairs) was not ideal. And the seat cushion was uncomfortable. The blue cheese style filet mignon was good, but not great--should have been hotter.

Great food and service for dinner as usual. I was surprised at how noisy and busy it was for a Wednesday night. We had a reservation but had to wait for a booth toward the back because the bar and front were so loud we could not talk.

The only reason I have given a 4 star was for our service. Our waiter was not cut out for such a busy atmosphere. He often misunderstood and forgot things. Also, we sat with empty glasses for a bit. Pet peeve of ours. We had a group of 4 and all but 1 of us had something he forgot or misunderstood. We have ate here several times and definitely won't keep us from coming again. The food is great, just a bad server experience.

We had the BEST prime rib that we have ever had anywhere - aged at least 21 days, trimmed of all excess fat, and cooked to a PERFECT medium rare with horseradish and au jus on the side. Side dishes of a loaded baked potato (awesome bacon!) and the Port Mushrooms (with a touch of basil) were also excellent. A great bottle of Swanson Vineyards Cygnet Merlot finished the meal spectacularly. We will do this again VERY soon!

We celebrated our Anniversary and birthday on our last visit. The food was excellent and our waitress was outstanding. We have only been to Firebirds two other times, but each time we have been well pleased with the food and service. The noise is a bit hard to have conversation but doesn't deter our chance of eating at Firebirds again.

We were celebrating my God Granddaughter’s 13th birthday. She loved it. She’s never been there before. It was the perfect setting for her birthday luncheon. There was no additional waiting with our reservation. The server was very courteous and pleasant. The food was beautifully presented. It was piping hot a delicious. We have decided this will be our “official birthday celebration spot” in the years to come!!

This has quickly become one of my favorites for steaks and love the prime rib. The fresh vegetables, ranch onion rings, and salads are my favorite sides. I try to go at least once every other month.

I took out of town guests to Firebirds since they don't have this chain in their state (Ohio). I've enjoyed dining at Firebirds a few times over the past three years. Even though I had a reservation, we had to wait a bit for our table to be "cleaned off". And it seemed like it took longer than necessary to receive our meals since the restaurant didn't look too busy at the time of our reservation. Overall, we were pleased with the wide variety of menu choices, delicious food, appealing presentations and courteous service.

The grilled scallops were quite good, but the side salad, classic mixed greens, and the grains we just off the mark. Good but not fantastic. We were seated at a table next to a large party which was odd with so much other space available. The waitress did ask if we would like to move and we did not. It was fine but a little noisier that normally would expect.

Quality and selection has really gone downhill since the last time we dined here. Two mainstays we always get - coconut shrimp and pecan encrusted trout - removed from menu in favor of "healthier menu items" as stated by the manager. Ordered the Ribeye - medium, which came well-done and cold. Sent back and received another steak - "hot off the grill" according to the manager - this too was well done and at room temperature, not "hot off the grill". Side of broccoli was cold, flavorless with zero seasoning. Its a shame as this was a favorite go to place for high quality food and service.

The restaurant was busy, so the service wasn’t as quick as I would’ve liked, but completely satisfactory. I ordered prime rib, and when it was delivered it was well done instead of rare. I sent it back and the manager came over and said they had no more prime rib but offered to prepare whatever I wished. I chose filet mignon which was simply outstanding. All of my party had a wonderful time.

The kitchen really does a great job here. I had the sesame encrusted salmon which was delicious. It melted in my mouth. Loved the port mushrooms as a side dish. The mushrooms were the only low-carb side choice aside from the vegetables. Service was only average however. Had to ask to get a glass of water. And it took her a while to ask if we were interested in bread and butter

We love Firebirds and typically have an awesome experience. Something was off this evening. We came because of the filet oscar advert I received by email which I ordered. It was really the worst dinner I've ever had here which, again, is so odd. The asparagus were completely overcooked and slimy. The filet was tasteless and not cooked to order (I asked for medium and it was medium rare to rare in parts). Even the crab meat was blah. Really disappointing. My son's broccoli was rock hard and he couldn't eat it - thankfully it was much better when we got home and reheated it. Our waitress was incredibly sweet and really helpful. But everything was sloooooowwwww - much slower than we've ever experienced before. And my side salad never came before dinner. We'll 100% return because of every other good experience. But this was not the best night.
