    My friends and I went for Happy Hour. It was my first time at this restaurant and I was looking forward to it based on their menu selection. Unfortunately, the whole experience was disappointing and we won’t be returning. The service was friendly but inadequate - items forgotten, dish of ice from oysters spilled on table. The food was the most disappointing - chicken tacos were bland, the chicken was not hot. The brisket sliders were bland and boring. The ceviche was terribly bland and the dish made no sense - slices of tuna layered between thin cut radishes and thick cut raw jalapeños with a side of tasteless green apple dressing accompanied by tortilla chips. The prices wouldn’t have been bad if the food was any good at all. The portions were decent. There’s a lot of choice when it comes to restaurants. It only takes one bad experience to lose a customer.

    Food was fantastic. Loved the oysters and the Fried Chicken Sandwich was top notch. Pork Mac n Cheese was a family favorite. Portions were huge so come with an appetite.

    Food turned out well and service was cheerful. But it’s more a sports bar than as portrayed- and the menu was much more limited than listed on OpenTable - none of the items that had attracted us.

    Went there for happy hour, and found out the price jumped, fresh oysters from $1each (feb 2022) to $2 each (Jun 2022), and the size of the oysters are not bigger than a finger nail. Poor value. Won’t go back anymore.

    Fish and chips described as Halibut, but it was cod. To pass off Cod as Halibut and charge $28 is a disgrace. Ceaser salad meal was mixed with blue cheese dressing, not Ceaser dressing. It was disgusting. We will never return

    Had dinner with friends on June 4 at 7pm. We were seated right away. Our server was at our table right away. He took our orders & was served after 15min. The menu selection is very limited, serving is good enough. Though a little busy we didn't have to wait long in calling our server. Registered our plate # at the hotel's front desk. Laura was very nice. Very nice ambiance. Will definitely come back & recommend.

    We had looked at the menu on line and saw several items we were interested in, so booked a table. Menu was not the same as online, the menu we were given was very limited and had more burgers than anything, not what we were looking for. Had a burger….it was good but not worth the price IMO. Restaurant was very noisy, with the open kitchen and all hard surroundings it was hard to talk. We won’t be going back.

    Our server, though friendly, didn’t seem to know much about the beverages and got orders mixed up. Chairs very comfy. Fried chicken was excellent and reviews on biscuits stuffed with beef were very good. Large portions and pretty reasonable prices. Would definitely return.

    I went to Free Bird on Friday April 8, 2022 for my after work refreshment and happy hour menu since it locates close to my place where I live. I used to go there regularly a year ago. I didn’t go there a lot for the past few months due to my personal private events. As I went back to there, my overall dining experience and the food were superior. At the time of my visit, I couldn’t decide what I want. The server named Irene came and checked on me, and she recommended me to get oysters paired with Guinness. Although their foods’ price point had increased, I couldn’t complain about. They had to do that in order to stay competitive along with inflation. The food portion was reflected the price point in the market, and it tasted excellent. She also suggested me to dip oysters with the sauce. I did what she said by dipping it into the sauce, it tasted very delicious. Thank you Irene for delivering me an excellent service, and I definitely will go back there again.

    Good place to grab a drink during happy hour - food was hit and miss, go for the chicken sliders. The rest of the food arrived cold but for the price we couldn't complain. Service was ok at best, often had to flag down our server/

    Weirdest place I've ever been to. Okay, so I'm looking for the restaurant/bar. No outside sign to point out the direction, but I see a sandwich board with it looking like it's inside the hotel lobby. I go inside and no interior sign, but an open room with a pool table, and some guys playing. I think maybe that's the direction, so I walk past the table, right into what looks like a converted store front. I'm looking for a host stand, but only see a sign on the corner of the bar stating that pickup is done there. I'm standing, looking around, and while the bartender looks busy, and most of the low tables are full, or look like they're in use, the server walks out from the back, sees me, and continues to a table to serve them. I wait a bit more, but they move off to clean a hi-top. So I think maybe I seat myself? I wander farther in, the server and bartender look at me, but say nothing. I'm getting a bit confused, as I'm wondering who's going to take my vaccine status and ID. None of the lower tables that seem vacant are clean, and the one clean hi-top can't be used by my due to a medical handicap. So I take one more look around, still no greeting or verbal inquiry from the staff, and I decided that I guess my reservation was not valid or perhaps pointless, and I leave. I don't know why I was ignored, nor am I positive that I was even in the correct spot, as zero signage. Clear signage, a clear demarcation of entrance area to the seating area, and being clearly acknowledged upon entrance would help people know if they were in the right spot. Too bad that I didn't get to try the food. It looked interesting. Disappointing.

    Free Bird Table & BarResponded on March 15, 2022I am very sorry to hear of your experience. This is definitely not the impression usually received. I would welcome further information and ask you please reach out to me personally. Best, Steve ( gm@thefreebird.ca )

    Decent price . Surprised that a shrimp (from shrimp cocktail ) was not a whole one. Ribs was on the spicy side (not indicated on menu ) . Music was loud (yes it’s a table and bar but nice to be able to converse without needing to raise our voices) Not sure if same person in the kitchen but the crispy veggies is on the sweeter side this time (I remembered that it was citrusy cheese)

    Restaurant offers free parking in a specific lot but doesn’t let customers know until after you have paid for street parking and entered the restaurant, and they don’t reimburse you. If you dine here go around the back of the building to the parking lot. Do not pay for street parking.
