Celebrated my husband's BD with a friend. Upon making reservations, spoke with Al, a manager Sat morning, that I'd made reservations online and needed to change. He was so nice and helpful. Explained our disabilities, that we're not able to stand too long. NP, come in and we'll make sure you get to your table. When I found out our favorite Server, Jenny, was working I changed times again! Speaking with Lucy in changing our time was more than gracious. We shared the Ranch Onion Rings, which were thin, crispy, not oily! Two people of the party had the Prime Rib special, I had the Filet. Cooked to perfection. Recommed the saute mushrooms, loaded baked potato, and Oh, green beans with spicy pecans. I'd prefer them cooked a bit more, but they were fresh and not too spicy! The 2 Mangers introduced themselves and just checked with us to make sure everything was good for us. Very clean, following Covid guidelines. We'll certainly return. Want to sit outside for drinks and appetizers! This was our first time, but not the last! Thanks everyone for a pleasant evening.

Still had a 20 minute wait to sit. Sat at a bar table Brian helped and was great. Got my table and Holly was not good. Never got bread and burnt medium steak no pink. Still gave a good tip and she came back and thanked me and said she was having a very bad night and this made her day. I always give a good tip but never have had anyone thank me and tell me it made her night, which changed my whole experience around and I left with a smile. Wish it would have been a better night for my 10 year anniversary, but the key lime pie to go was great for breakfast the next morning.

Bill was our server, he was great! The food was ok. I had the surf & turf. The steak had good flavor but was overcooked. The lobster was a nice size but overcooked and had no flavor. If I were to go back, I definitely would not get the lobster again.

Filet mignon was very cold and way overcooked even though we asked for well done but lobster was ok and chicken was also cold but it was tasty. Overall food was cold and not cooked properly.

On September 19, 2020, my party of 4 arrived ontime for our 6:00 PM reservation. The checkin was not as streamlined as I thought it would be; as a matter of fact, we were met with a chaotic hostess experience . . . guests gathered in front of the hostess stand and in the door entrance, with no indication of whether they was standing in line, had a reservation, was checking in for a table or other. When I finally was able to weave through and got the hostess's attention to let her know that I had a 6:00 PM reservation, she acknowledged and confirmed on her screen, but was then distratcted by other non-reserved guests trying to be seated and forgot all about my reservation. After about 6:15-6:20 PM, and after I finally got the other hostess's attention and kept it, my party was seated. Service at the table was awesome, the food was tasty and the environment was pleasant.

We sat outside due to covid, this was our third visit. Food is delicious! The noise level from the road is a bit less desired. First visit was much quieter outside. But loving the filet and mash potatoes . Don’t forget to try the brownie 😋

My niece and I truly enjoyed the special attention the staff gave us, as we commemorated her graduation. All were welcoming, gracious, and cheerful, expressing genuine interest in her celebration.

Our meals (impossible burger, fish tacos, followed by creme brûlée cheesecake and key lime pie - live a little!) were delicious, the outdoor seating very pleasant, and the whole experience was delightful.

The food : really good
The Service : Terrible ! the waitress only had one other table but she acted like those people were the only customers perhaps they were personal friends. She spend so much time with them looking at personal pictures and sharing stories meanwhile we are sitting at the table waiting for a drink maybe some bread . When she finally decided to acknowledge she never check back on us . My husband and I both had steak our steak got cold waiting for her to come back to us to get a refill on my coke she never checked back until I called her . What a disappointment because the food was actually good .

My husbands steak was great, but both his shrimp and mine were cold. Sent it back and it was again cold. I just told the girl to take it. My tater tots were also cold and by the time my husband was done eating a fresh batch of tots came out. I told her to take them back.
They took off my meal which I did get a half salad and they still charged my husbands shrimp. We go there a lot, but this time wasn’t very good. They did give us a piece of cake to take home.

Our server was FANTASTIC. I really wanted the Flounder sandwich but can only have whole grain or rye bread. She suggested that I get the fish tacos wrapped in lettuce and that was the best recommendation ever. Kudos to her!!!

The place was nearly empty and we got seated in the far back. Our waitress didn’t come until being seated for 10 minutes and even with a max of 3 tables, she seemed like she was in a hurry to be everywhere else but our table. We didn’t place an order until 20 minutes after being seated. Then our food was not cooked properly and no credit or discount was given. The manager on duty seemed very bossy and was loud when giving the cooks orders. Unfortunate first and last visit to Firebirds
