Yes, it is a chain. The food is of high quality (and generous portions) and well prepared, though, and the atmosphere and service add a lot to the experience. We had 2 cocktails each, split an app and had an entree each for about $90, not including tip. It was worth it, and we'd come back.

I love Firebirds. It’s very popular, so I always use opentable to make a reservation. We were a little early Saturday night, but only by 10minutes. So we had to wait, which I didn’t particularly like. The service was very good, the meal was yummy. I was disappointed to see the Key Lime Pie Cheesecake has been removed from the menu. It certainly is to die for. Overall it was a nice meal.

Food was very good . Service was terrible; had to ask 3 times for bread. Water was never refilled even after asking for re fills. It also took a really long time to get the food.

Very enjoyable evening at Gainesville Firebirds in celebration of selling our client's local real estate. The server, Phil, was at the utmost very attentive, and accommodating to our time, and conversation of celebration. The selected appetizers of the evening were: LOBSTER SPINACH QUESO, and PHILLY CHEESESTEAK EGG ROLLS. The main entrees: FILET MIGNON, CHILE RUBBED DELMONICO, PEPPER ENCRUSTED SIRLOIN, and FIREBIRDS CHICKEN PASTA w/shrimp instead of bacon. And, the celebration dessert: CREME BRULÉE CHEESECAKE. Wine selection: THE SEVEN DEADLY ZINS OLD VINE ZINFANDEL and PETITE PETIT SIRAH. The menu selection although very enjoyable was not the "WOW" factor which we remember at earlier visits to Firebirds. Thank you for GREAT service, Phil!

The service was awful. Bills were handed out before we could order dessert. We were eating dessert as he collected the payment.
One of my guests steak sandwich was very fatty. Another had a Caesar salad dripping with dressing and too overpowering to eat.
It was disappointing this time.

We all enjoyed our visit. Food and drinks were very good. A very friendly and competent Chris worked hard to take care of our table..and many others...may have been stretched too thin. We’ll return and will continue to recommend Firebirds to our friends.

Eat here about once a month. Seems like the place was noisier and not as clean as my previous experiences.

The steaks here are the best we had. They really pay attention to one’s request as to how one wants one’s steak cooked and they got 3 out of 3 right on our last visit. Also, the sides as well as the salads we had were wonderful. Spiced green beans were also just right and the port mushrooms was one of the most delicious preparation of mushrooms we had in a while. Also enjoyed the triple berry sundae and the churro chocolate desserts. Wonderful outing with great service by Angel. She was very good about keeping our drinks filled, service was prompt and food was delivered quickly and was hot. Angel was knowledgeable about the menu but was also very good about letting the conversation at the table flow and not be intrusive like some restaurants where we are constantly interrupted about whether everything was good or not.

Food was amazing but given that they were not overly packed for a Friday night was a little disappointed they didn’t acknowledge my wife’s birthday when specifically noted during the reservation. Also, they didn’t bring bread or water which were both requested.

The Burgers were woefully unseasoned and tasted previously frozen, the steak fries also tasted previously frozen.

We prefer this restaurant at lunchtime as it’s so noisy at night. Very hard to understand even the person sitting next to me! However, the food is good, some combinations really don’t work. Overall if sticking with fish or steak, it is quite good!

We were a party of six for lunch. Margo was our server. She was excellent! The entree’s were all very good, as were the desserts. The only negative was the New England clam chowder was too spicy, too much “heat.” So much that it made me sick that night, and I only had a cup. 🥺. The chowder would have been excellent without it being spicy hot. It had great flavor.

Firebirds is great place to eat but hard to get a table for a large group. Open table was helpful in getting a table without getting on the phone to and go find a time and table...
