    Out server was not knowledgeable about the food when we asked him questions about it . He didn’t come back to check up on us. We were out of water, coffee and a pop and we had to find another server to get our server to come to us . We would always have to call him over which made me feel like a nag. At one point. We wanted to pay our bill to get home to our kids but he was just talking to friends at the bar and it took us a while to get his attention . I was very disappointed.

    Had a terrific first experience at Free Bird. Went on a Sunday for brunch and was very impressed! We were there celebrating a milestone birthday and the staff took extra care of us- offering to take pictures, bringing out the cake and just overall great service. Ambiance is very nice, good balance of sports bar and restaurant. Very pleased with our time there and will return!

    Booked a Birthday reservation for my husband, not one waiter or waitress offered a happy birthday or a congratulations or anything. It took quite a while for the food to arrive, but it was pretty fully inside so I understand that to a degree. My chicken was just too much. It was a whole half a chicken and I felt awful leaving have untouched on my plate but it was just too dry when combined with the waffles. Maybe because I asked to hold the coleslaw, like, that's where the moister on the plate was supposed to be? But my husband also had complaints about his food too- he said he's never had ribs where he was unsure of where the bone was before. We left quite a bit on our plates and the waitress didn't even ask if we'd like it to go either, just took the plates and left after a good 10 minutes of waiting for the check.

    We went for Mother's Day Brunch. While the servers were attentive they didn't check in after the food was delivered. A side of bacon arrived cold. The shareable we asked for as a starter arrived at the same time as the rest of the food and it was not fresh. The coffee was not great. Overall, a mediocre meal.

    This was probably my worst dining experience, and to top it off. I had to experience it on Mother’s Day when you want everything to go perfect for this special lady in your life. We waited, almost an hour, just to get our appetizers, and when we got them at the cold and soggy and it was not as if the restaurant was busy. There was just enough people, and they had extra staff, but the waitress messed up the order and even after complaining it did not improve so we basically had to leave and go to somewhere else The food was oily, burnt and fish looked undercooked The service was equally terrible as the waitress hardly showed up at the table, even not to refill coffee, or check on anything I would never ever go there and only send my enemy there

    The person who greeted us was so rude. Told him we had reservations he rudely asked when we made them and when I showed him the confirmation email he rudely said that they don’t even look at the reservations. Then reluctantly gave us a table. We did not get menus had to ask another customer if we could use theirs when they were done. I can’t express the attitude the server gave when we asked questions regarding the items on the menu. Nobody asked how our food was until we were almost done. We had to ask a random person for our bills, didn’t know who’s meals were whos… Will never recommend or go back as the service was awful. Food was mediocre. Buns were super soggy, chicken batter was not fully crisped. All in all not a good experience

    Came here to have lunch on my mom’s birthday but they only had brunch menu available until 2pm. Food wan’t that good. The poached egg on the benny was overcooked. The Nashville chicken burger was blah, you can tell it’s not fresh because the skin was soggy against the meat. Not much options for brunch. Service was so so. Will not be back.

    FreeBird is an all-around AMAZING place to dine. The food is always great. The staff and manager are always kind and accommodating. My elderly mother uses a walker, and is always treated with respect each time we go. A great place to celebrate a birthday, have a cold beer, great meal, or just chill. We can't wait to go there again. Kinda sounds like CHEERS. Perfect!

    We were here for Dine Out. The Gnocchi Jambalaya was heavy and disappointing. Churro donuts were super greasy - felt like they have been drenched in oil for the whole day. Even though the restaurant had many empty tables and our entire dining experience (from being seated to paying) was barely 90 minutes, the waitress rushed us. She offered a to-go box before we asked and brought over dessert as we were still trying to finish our main.

    Fried chicken and waffles fantastic. Mac and cheese with bbq pork not as great or maybe husband wasn’t very hungry. Chicken moist coating very tasty. Coleslaw very good with a nice kick to it. Waffles very good, moist and eggy and very light. I obviously was very very full when we left. Churros for dessert also good. Good thing I wasn’t counting calories!

    The food here is always good. Their happy hour is amazing and worth the trip. We were sad though because there was a lot of traffic and rolled in at 6:02 and didn’t make that menu. Nevertheless everything we ordered was delicious. Oysters are fresh and always good. The family fried chicken meal is HUGE and we enjoy all parts of it. Potatoes and veg are roasted and seasoned just right. Coleslaw is crispy and not over dressed. Chicken has perfect skin: crispy, sweet and salty. The corn bread was moist and was almost dessert like. $60 and our table for 4 was satisfied.
