Nice restaurant with good bar area. Must try their special pineapple margarita drink, very smooth and tasty. Good selection of appetizer, the lobster spinach cheese dip is very good. Good menu options for meat and vegie people.

Had a nice dinner with several friends. We ordered several appetizers to share before dinner. The onion rings, wings, and lobster queso were all very good. The filet I had for dinner was perfectly cooked and quite tasty. We enjoyed the dinner. Service was pretty good. I would definitely eat here again. Prices are a bit higher than I would... More

We have eaten here many times because the food has been reliably good. However, this outing I made a reservation through their site, which uses nextable and it very clearly asked if we were coming in for a celebration birthday dinner. Yes. They acknowledged this at the door when we arrived but never brought any surprise birthday cake at the... More

Everyone told us that this place was great for lunch so we decided to try it. The restaurant looks nice and the staff was friendly. It is located on the streets of the Southpoint Mall. The smoked chicken wings were done nicely, the baby back ribs fell off the bone and were very tender, the Kobe beef meatloaf was tasty,... More

I felt like Firebirds was a bit overpriced even the drinks were like $15 each and I just felt like it wasn't enough liquor in the drinks for $15

My wife and I have eaten at Firebirds in Charlotte and were happy there, so visiting in Durham and staying very nearby, we chose to try them again. Good choice. We both ordered Mahi with pineapple salsa, and it was very good..the mahi and the salsa. Not the best ever, but very good. We each had salads and they were... More

Return visit with a group while on business in the Raleigh area. Very good atmosphere and quick to serve the drinks. Food selection is very good. Decent apps. Ordered the Peppercorn steak and it was cooked perfectly.

Firebirds is pretty good, at Southpoint Mall, so always busy. The outdoor seating is nice to people watch while dining. Service is pretty good, which is why we always sit at the bar, service is better there. The food is good, but at $23 for an entree and $15 for an 8oz glass of wine, $13 for an app, the... More

Just finished lunch @ Firebirds. I am happy with the experience. No waiting time, a very nice starter, coconut prawns, and a very nice main dish, salmon with steam vegs. Nicely decorated and a good ambience. Much less noisy than its neighbour, Cheesecake Factory! Service was very good I have to stay, the standard American service level you generally expect!

Thank nadhemjf
