Food was amazing but the waitress left a lot to be desired. She literally acted as if we were bothering her by ordering.

We met up with 3 other couples and had a great time! The drinks here were very good! The food was equally good! Everyone had a great time! It was a nice casual atmosphere with upscale food, especially for a place that calls themselves a "Kitchen and Bar". We sat in the back of the restaurant which was great...almost like our own little room for the party of 8. Would definitely visit again!

I came to celebrate graduating from nursing school and had 10 people for brunch. This was my first time here, as well as the first time for most of my guest. Our waiter Alex was fantastic! His energy really made my guest comfortable and we really enjoyed ourselves. He has a great sense of humor. Our food came out promptly and was delicious. He also was attentive to our bottomless drinks and definitely made me feel special during my celebration! I would definitely come back. The restaurant is decorated for the season and it’s definitely a cozy vibe! Lots of different choices for bottomless which is nice and at $20 for 2 hours you can’t beat that!

We went for brunch because we were impressed by the menu. The waitress was nice and friendly. My husband LOVED his eggs and brisket on grits. My friend loved her HUGE portion of french toast with berries. My food was wrong at first but 3 people came over to assure me it would be corrected and it was - quickly. I had one of the avocado toasts but cannot eat eggs and it came out with an egg on top. They remade it for me. The bacon was very undercooked and we had asked for it to be well done so they fixed that as well. Will definitely return.

I love going here for brunch because it is the absolute best. I love how I assume they are the owners. Come by the table a check how everything is, joke around & just delight you. Every server I’ve ever had is also the same too. Everyone is just welcoming & delightful. Bottomless drinks at a reasonable price delicious food. I cannot believe this is my first time leaving a review but yeah this place is wonderful.

I've wanted to try Freebird Kitchen for a long time and I was not disappointed. Nice atmosphere and decor, friendly and knowledgeable service and delicious food! I had the Cubano sandwich and my husband had the Fried Chicken sandwich. Both were yummy. We both elected for a side salad instead of fries to lighten the dinner a bit. Our waiter highly recommended the Monkey Bread dessert -- and he was right -- it was amazing! Enough for 4 people t share! The cocktails were also delicious and pretty reasonably priced. Will definitely come back again.

The food was great. The host was great. Our waiter Nito made for a not so good experience. Not warm, not inviting, didn’t even smile. Maybe he was having a bad night. Left after appetizers because we didn’t feel welcome.

Although this restaurant claimed it had outside seating available it did not. The host laughed at the idea of precautions in light of Covid. This is a spot for college kids with no interest in serving a more discriminatory clientele.

Went for brunch, while everything on the menu sounded great the french toast was right up my alley, so that's what I ordered and was not disappointed. Despite the large brunch crowd, the service was attentive and friendly. Brunch at Freebird is a lot of fun.

Unfortunately it took an hour for us to receive our food. When we asked about it no one came back to let us know when to expect it. It wasn't until we asked for the check did someone come over to let us know it was coming. It was cold and unfortunately the friend chicken was too dry.

Our table was ignored multiple times. We had no designated waiter and the bus boy had to help us get out orders and refills in. I asked during the reservation making that a birthday dessert be brought out and it never was.

I’m not sure if the restaurant was understaffed, but the service was quite terrible. Our waiter walked by our table multiple times and didn’t even make eye contact with us. Water service stopped about halfway through. We had to ask four different people for a dessert menu and for our check, which took 20+ minutes to receive. We were there for almost 4 hours when we could’ve left after 2/2.5 hours. The restaurant wasn’t even super busy as they were empty tables all around us so we’re not sure what the issue is. When we told the manager, he didn’t even respond and I just walked away with her credit cards to pay the bill. It was a strange experience.

Sometimes you get a hankering for your favorite dish at one of your go to spots, and in those moments consistency is key. Freebird has yet to disappoint, their Shrimp N' Grits hits the spot every time.

This place was very nice and I had such a good time. They didn’t rush us at all. The waiter was a little dry in the beginning but instantly warmed up and the whole entire staff was amazing. They made us feel at home. And they checked on us and always made us feel valued. Certainly can’t wait to come back. Next time I hope to be on the rooftop
