    Prime rib was cold like it just came out of the refrigerator. I’m not one to complain so I ate it. But I can assure you my bill wasn’t worth the $105 dollars.

    We chose to celebrate our 10th anniversary at Firebirds in WDM and we were so happy that we did! Outstanding service from the hostess and our waiter Trevor. Really appreciated the flowers, card, and dessert in honor of our anniversary - very nice touch. Food was delicious, especially the Philly cheesesteak egg rolls. The atmosphere in the restaurant was great as well. We’ll definitely be back!

    We enjoyed our meal and the ambience very much. Previous reviews had noted excessive noise levels. The background sound was comfortable for dinner conversation. The beef filet and ribeye were exceptional. Highly recommend lobster queso for appetizer. Excellent service. Highly recommend.

    The service was fun and professional. We were celebrating an anniversary, so we didn’t have a time table to keep. The Manager and Server were very apologetic for the appearance of our meal being delayed. We had the advertised filet & shrimp meal, which was very good. The only issue we had was the overall volume of noise within the restaurant. The volume was loud enough to impact our conversation.

    Ordered shrimp and steak special. Steak was welldone not medium rare as ordered. Both shrimp and steak had a sauce on it that was unnecessary and far too heavy. Onion rings were nice but over cooked. Pasta options were limited and had similar heavy gelatinous sauce that was out of place with the pasta as were the chunks of ham. The place was busy so it took a long time to get our food but this seems to be the norm these days and staff were pleasant and as attentive as they could be. Environment was bustling so not easy to talk across at large table.

    Horrible smell coming from the bathrooms, they said it was the sewage backing up. Ordered a filet mignon and I never been served a cut like this one, it was super thin, cold, no seasoned at all. The lobster was super overcooked… this meal was not worth $188, not in a lifetime.

    The host from the get go seemed annoyed people were there. We should have taken that as a sign to go somewhere else. Once seated we were on the side with the bathrooms and you could smell them from our table which was as off putting. . It wasn’t the cleanest. Crumbs still on the table and seats from the previous seating. Our food took about 90 minutes from when we ordered to when we received it. Two meals were sent back for being burnt and no one’s food was hot… lukewarm at best. Management tried to make right but at that point in the meal we just all wanted out. Luckily the company was great, our server bless her heart was trying to make it right but just seemed like we couldn’t hit a stride with the kitchen or bar. Probably won’t be back anytime soon.

    Food was flavorful. The baked potato was on the salty side. Split the meal and they had it split onto 2 plates when served. Friendly staff and the manager came around asking how things were. Nice upper scale dining, great place for a first date or special occasion. Prices not bad based on what you get and the atmosphere. Will be back!

    Overall, it was good but not great. A bit overpriced for what you get - the steaks and prime rib dinners only come with one side. But the steaks were properly prepared and flavorful. The Parmesan mashed potatoes were a nice idea but gummy in texture and lumpy. I wouldn’t order those again. I was surprised by the large crowd for a Thursday night; the tables were full and the server did her best to keep up. It looked like a corporate crowd - I’m sure their location to nearby hotels is a draw. We may not be back soon but we’ll definitely return. It is a nice alternative to our more frequent “go-tos”.

    $22 for a salad seems high, but we are in an inflated time so I understand. I prefer quality over price, so I am willing to cover. I do hope to see the prices balance as inflation is addressed.

    Delicious as always. I always get the grilled salmon, loaded baked potato and mixed veggies and they are all excellent. Had a reservation and got right in. The place was packed at 6:30 and I'm sure there would have been a wait without the reservation.
