The dining room is also cozy with a great menu. Great selection without overwhelming you with a 3 page menu. Steak is their feature and it does... More

This is a chain but an incredibly good one. It's ALWAYS packed but sitting at a high top in the bar is always a good choice. The drinks are great, atmosphere is great, and the small outside space has sofas and a fireplace. My husband always gets the "bacon and blue" filet mignon and I always get the spinach salad... More

This is our go to place when we want a really good steak. The atmosphere is really nice, reminds me of the old steak houses. The service is always outstanding and they never rush you. The food and cocktails are really, really good and that's why we are willing to travel twenty miles to get there.

Wanted to try a new place for Christmas Eve dinner for my wife and I. The onions rings with ranch sauce were a tasty appetizer to start with. We each got a salad, my wife had the BLT salad, I had the Caesar. They were both excellent as was the freshly baked bread. Our main course was the Center Cut... More

The husband and I, visited this restaurant for the first time, this past week. I believe they are known for their steaks. Having said that, I had the salmon. It was a large portion, very good flavor, but just a little bit overcooked. The mashed potatoes that I had, Arrived warm, and were gummy. My husband said that the steak... More

Firebirds Wood Fired Grill offers a pleasant dining experience. The restaurants is broken up into several smaller areas. This helps to create a more intimate dining experience and also helps to eliminate drafts on cold nights. The servers all seem to be both busy and helpful. My husband and I started our dinner with a shared Caesar salad which was... More

Lunch was great, service was attentive. I'll bring business associates back again. Had the smokehouse burger which was perfectly cooked. Best part of the meal though was the spinach salad.

Thank Gary J
