Good experience minus the up-charge of $6 for a side of broccoli still love the place and me and my wife frequently visit so we will most definitely be back.

Probably won't go back. My daughters pasta was very spicy-she did not want to say anything and ruin our dinner or make a scene so she kept quiet. My rib eye had too much rub on it. The drinks were very watered down. Our food was served and my daughter had no silverware. We asked but did not receive it until all of our food was cold. Disappointing dinner

Something has changed. Not sure what it is, but all the food tastes different. Not as good as it used to be. We were going to buy a bottle of wine until we saw that bottle the Napa wine we chose from the menu was actually a wi e by the same name but different CA location, that actually sells for less than the wine they were advertising. We just feel cheated going there now.

Steak place, I was excited to try the meatloaf, but it looked like a can of pate cat food dumped on my plate! Didn't taste like great ground sirloin as I expected but either lots of filler or crappy meat. So disappointed and almost inedible.

We go here all of the time but today it was just...off
Ordered the grilled chicken, and it was awful. SO dry and overcooked I couldn't eat it. I sat for 15+ minutes while everyone else ate so they could recook the meal and... nothing. No discount. No comped meal. Kiddo's Mac and cheese was missing the cheese.
The waitstaff was excellent, but for the price, I feel like you should have your food spot on.

Bella was a wonderful server, friendly and helpful. My "medium" prime rib was pretty rare, but delicious nonetheless. Thanks!

The food was amazing as always. The steak was perfectly cooked as ordered. Service was attentive. The server overheard my daughter discussed about my birthday cake she brought me a yummy surprise dessert for my birthday. That was very thoughtful and it made my day. Firebirds is a great place all around.

My husband and I love this place. I work with restaurant email marketing and I came across their emails plenty of times so we decided to give it a go. So far, we have visited this place 3 times. All of these times ordered drinks, appetizer, dessert and entrees. The steaks are aged and delicious, so tender, they melt in your mouth. The drinks are always delicious and if you don't particularly like yours they would literally make it again until you are satisfied. The appetizers and the desserts are delightful. We just truly, truly love this restaurant and it has become a staple in our marriage. Give it a try!

One steak arrived grossly over cooked. The waitress had already left the table when it was discovered and we had trouble getting someone back. Finally, a mgr came, confirmed well-done and not med rare and took it back, promising a quick replacement. It finally came after everyone else was finished, so I just took it home. Too slow.

Went for filet mignon day and had great meal at reduced price. Food is always great and they often have specials. Waiter wasn't paying attention and mixed up my salad order. But quickly corrected.

Our anniversary dinner was fantastic. The waitress brought us a desert and a card everyone signed. So sweet!! The manager even stopped by to thank us for coming. This is the reason we come back every year!!

Food and service was excellent. Extremely noisy and had to take out my hearing aids. Had prime rib and was very good and cooked perfectly. However, steak knives used just destroyed the meat. Either wrong knives or need to be replaced.

It was my mother in laws bday. Three of us ordered prime rib. It was tough and had to taste. To be honest outback has a better prime rib than Firebirds.

It is a lot of money to spend for not so good tasting and firm prime rib.

When the manager came over all he said was that he was sorry. No mention of, oh I will take half off of your meal since it was x3.

Poor management. Will not be back.

I forget that this is not a place to go to on a Saturday night. The best experiences we have had here have been on a week night when it was not busy. This time our cuts of steak were not great and my husbands was super thin and over cooked. We will not go again on a weekend. Stick with the weekdays when they take their time cooking.

I met a friend for lunch. I had my first drink of Prosecco and really enjoyed it. We both enjoyed lunch entree salads (hers the steak, mine shrimp & strawberries), and we finished with a shared Creme Brulet cheesecake. Good company, delicious meal, no complaints at all!
