Had 30 people for a business dinner and everything was great. The food and service was well above average and the atmosphere was nice. The portions (especially the cake dessert) were very large.

Dined at the Firebirds on Robious Rd in Chesterfield. The prime rib was delicious, moist and tender. Plus the wine was 1/2 price and I had a great red that I was planning to try.

Went for birthday dinner and sat outside. Nice patio area and you really wouldn’t know you were in a shopping center area. Food is always very good. Service was great, as usual.

Gone to this restaurant twice and enjoyed the food and drinks each time. The atmosphere was great, the staff was nice and the lobster tails and crab cakes were AMAZING.
