Great server, very pleasant. Pretty long wait for our food (salads). Food was very good, as always. We love Firebirds. Only a slight issue:The wall ledge between us and the kitchen was used to stage and package to-go meals. Kind of a distraction to have this done in that location with the noise from the paper bags rustling and chatter. In the future, I would probably pass on a booth in that location.

We were seated in a booth directly opposite the front door and the outdoor breeze was uncomfortably cold. A solid partition separating the booths from the doorway could fix this issue. Albeit a minor issue that only arises in the winter, it still made the front tables uncomfortable during the dinner rush. Everything else, including our server (Matt), was outstanding and we always enjoy going out to dinner at Firebirds. In fact, this experience will not stop us from going again just giving some feedback.

The menu had a good selection, the food and service were good and guests were well spaced but not all the servers or cooks were wearing masks which made me a little uncomfortable. Also, despite there being a lot of open tables, they insisted on squishing 5 of us into a booth for 4. They did put a chair at the end so it was ok but there were larger open tables nearby!

Always great food, awesome server, and warm atmosphere. Only issue was that 1 of the steaks had to be sent back for more time on the grill. Will be back!!

A restaurant that hits all the marks. Not only was all of the food we got delicious, even the food I took home was still delicious. This is not a place to rush and eat. This is a feast to be enjoyed. The smoked wings are a "can't miss" item and definitely leave room for dessert. The lemon cake was scrumptious...and admittedly, I had to get it to go since I was so full already. I had the grilled shrimp and strawberry salad and stole a couple of my daughter's fries as well. Everyone loved their food and I am just waiting for my next opportunity to go back to eat. It is an hour and a half away, but well worth the drive...as it is halfway between my daughter's house and mine.

Felt rushed. My husband and I were sitting and talking after our meal enjoying a drink and the server kept
Coming asking if we needed anything else or if we were done. Became irritating so we finally just paid and left.

Food was good but I believe service makes or breaks the experience. In this case our server was nice but not very attentive or knowledgeable.

First of all, the restaurant was freezing. We sat at the table with our coats on and every time the door to the outside opened, we put our hoods up.

Second the service was slow and the prices were very high. I ordered a 7 oz filet mignon and if it was 3 oz I was lucky. Also the food was not cooked properly and it was cold. My baked potato was also cold.

My grandson's chicken fingers were too hard for him to eat. How can you mess up a club sandwich. Firebirds did. My granddaughter, who is not a child, picked at it and barely ate any of it.

My husband's chicken was overcooked and very dry. Only ate a few bites.

Also, we were there to celebrate my son-in-law's birthday. When I made the reservations, they asked if it was a special occasion. I indicated it was to celebrate a birthday. No mention of it was ever made. I

It took forever to get 2 lemonade for my grandkids and sodas for others.

Since we thought we would be going frequently to Firebirds, we joined their "club" which is free. We have gone there several times and we will never be going back.

My family lives in Texas. Understand Firebirds just opened a restaurant there. We are going to warn our family and friends not to go to the Firebirds!

Brunch menu was extremely disappointing and limited. Salmon benedict seems and odd choice and asked about substituting the salmon were told that "No substitutions were allowed on the brunch menu". Very understaffed and took a while for drinks, food, checking on the table, etc. This was a New Year's Day brunch so doubly disappointed. They need to work on their menu and service for us to go back.

My husband and I always enjoy dining at Firebirds. The food is consistently good and service is excellent. However, on this visit, one of our meals was not prepared correctly. The salmon entrée was very, very salty. The manager did correct the problem and we were pleased.

NYE with great, long time friends. Three of the four had good
meals. One in the party had sirloin - meat was too tough to eat. This was 2nd occasion in a row poor/tough steak for same individual who says he won’t return. Meat was too tough to take to dog who likely wouldn’t have been able to chew it……. Guess I’ll have to spend remainder of my $100GC with girlfriends……. BLT salad is ALWAYS OUTSANDING!!!

Last minute get together w/our best friends & we were able to book a table for four at 5 on New Years Eve.
Our server Angel was a delight and it being a early RSVP this place was on their game. They even wiped our table down before we were seated. The place was full and Never did feel rush so she could move onto the next group. The food was awesome. Yes we will be back.

Asparagus was not cooked. It was raw. Two of the same red snapper entrees came out different. One had sauce one didn’t. The stripper had skin still on it. Food was very pedestrian. Disappointed because I have not experienced this in the past. Firebirds may have a problem in the kitchen.

There were 6 meals total. Everyone had a great meal except me. My wood fired salmon was quite dry, even looking at it before trying it. It was also missing the lime sauce. I didn’t notify the waiter as any disruption would have upset him. But it was a disappointing meal for me unfortunately. I also thought the baked potato I ordered had way too much salt… Thankful everyone else had a great meal.

I would probably recommend your restaurant, but would want to share this experience as well.

Very nice Christmas Eve dinner with a great server.
Food wasn’t as good as I’m accustomed to at Firebirds, but it was late on a holiday in a busy season.
Restaurant was clean, staff was all friendly, and it was a very special night.
