Tonight I placed a to-go order for three blue cheese fillets and two desserts. We asked (and emphasized the need for...) one of the orders that were different be marked, a straightforward task. The meal (s) were awful. All three were overcooked, horrible cuts of...meats, and of course, the different meal was not marked—our meal cost over 133.00$. I would have gladly paid this price if it was worth it. Outback Steak House is better than Firebirds in Hoover.More

First my wife's birthday we went to Firebirds at her request. She loves Firebirds, so that's where we go. We were seated quickly and our server, Stacie, took care of use the entire time. I had a child rubbed Delmonico steak, which was delicious and...the best baked potato I've had in a while. She had the chicken pasta which she raved about and you get plenty of it. Each time we go to Firebirds we find it consistently good and the staff friendly and attentive. We've never had a bad meal there and will always go back.More

Decent meal on Valentine's Day (with a reservation). The Prime Rib was a hit, and the Grilled Salmon was better than anticipated (a bit salty, but well cooked through). Service by Laura H was excellent, especially considering the pressure of the holiday. The dessert (Churro...with Custard) is creative, and tasty. Pricing is reasonable for the value delivered. Overall good experience.More

Had not been to Firebirds in a few years, but went back for celebratory lunch for a coworker. There were 12 of us and our selections were varied. There were no complaints. I had the babyback ribs which fell off the bone. The garlic mashed...potatoes were so plentiful, I shared with others. One of my companions had the Salmon which was succulent and fresh. Another had my favorite, the Shrimp tacos, and the pasta dish another coworker had looked terrific and received high marks. The lunch menu had any and everything you can imagine therefore it is a great change from the usual where restaurants have about 10 lunch selections. The prices were reasonable for lunch, and had great value for the quality, presentation and ambiance of the restaurant. Great food, great service and a very nice atmosphere.More

We’ve heard a lot of good things about Firebirds so we wanted to give it a try for NYE. Our reservations were at 5 and we were seated as soon as we arrived. A big disappointment when at 5pm on NYE they were out of...moscato wine. I just couldn’t understand it. My husband and I both ordered the ribeye steak. My husbands side item was a baked potato which he said was only a little warm. Both steaks were cooked perfectly and were absolutely delicious. A good experience could have been a great experience with just a bit help. Who runs out of moscato at 5pm on NYE!!!More

I've been coming to Firebirds at Patton Creek literally since they opened. What once was a great place to go for a nice dinner out, happy hour or lunch on the patio has become a dismal choice for anything. In the last 6 months, I...have been in 3 times. June of 2019 was spent with friends for a birthday celebration. It was a total fiasco. Out of the 4 of us, we all had serious issues with our order. Food was very over salted, not cooked enough or just plain cold, and after several trips back to the kitchen to fix our orders the server had the manager come by. He apologized profusely and acknowledged that "it was an off day". He gave each of us a 25.00 gift card to come back. In November, we had an adult child in town and we decided to try one more time. My husband's meatloaf and our daughter's steak were cooked perfectly. I had the portobello mushroom sandwich. All were delicious and we left thinking the previous issues were resolved. So on, December 23rd, we suggested dinner with friends at Firebirds. Another disastrous meal. 1 meal out of 4 came out of the kitchen cooked appropriately. Salmon was barely cooked. Green beans were hard, cold and flavorless. After two tries from the kitchen, we all gave up. And, on this last visit, they had difficulty seating us; one table was broken, another had wet chocolate on the banquette, and finally sat us at a table that was "reserved". Note: We also had made reservations! We will not be back... 2 out of three visits were miserable. Unfortunately, the Firebirds of the past is no longer!More

This stand-alone (franchise, I think) restaurant has nice décor and service is average. Menu items were varied with meats, sandwich specialties and seafood. Open late on week nights but was rather pricey. Food was good.

Reservations for a party of 20 for a friend's b'day. Designated servers Ivy & Diego were accommodating & pleasant. I ordered the Java BBQ burger & fries. Will give the dish B- or C+ because my fries were warm, not hot and I needed more...sauce on my burger. The best thing was the wonderful CHOCOLATE CHEESECAKE - a new dish, so not on the menu, but Diego informed me of it, and it was worth every penny, nice and large. Only caveat is, I do not like caramel and caramel is drizzled on the plate under the cheesecake. I reminded them I wanted Chocolate syrup on the plate or no sauce at all, but no caramel. They accommodated me and made that substitution. Overall, the servers & Chocolate Cheesecake made the visit worth the trip.More

This was our 3rd visit after a horrendous first visit. Took over 1/2 hour for a glass of wine. 2nd visit was on manager Vic to show it was a bad example and come on back wasn’t bad. 3rd visit to use the gift cards...was another example of poor management. Over a 1/2 hour on a Sunday night with less than 20 people in the building for a salad and “ribeye” (see photo). Ribeye was ordered medium rare. It’s 1/4” thick and well done. I’ve had breakfast strip steaks that were thicker and at least prepared as requested for less than $12; not $30. Our server did not know the manager’s nameMore

It's a large restaurant with many tables inside and out so I really think so.
