I'm not a fan of chain restaurants, particularly chain steak houses, but Firebirds impressed me. The food was excellent. Steaks were served as ordered, and were very good. The salads are great...I could have made a meal of the BLT salad. The sides are a bit limited, missing things like asparagus, etc. The spiced pecan green beans were very good though. The prices aren't bad at all, especially considering the quality of the food. If you get Amanda as your server, you've hit the jackpot. Attentive, pleasant and fun. Will definitely go back.

I suggested Firebirds for dinner when visiting my son in Des Moines. I read several reviews where people claimed they had excellent steak. At our table of three we had New York strip that was tough and over cooked with steak fries that my son compared to his college cafeteria fries. We also ordered the chicken breast with pineapple and vegetables. The presentation was appealing, but dry chicken was not. The third entree was a ribeye ordered medium rare with a baked potato. It's hard to mess up a fully loaded potato so no complaints there. The ribeye was cooked to perfection on 1/3 of the steak and over cooked on the rest. It still had a good flavor, but if you cannot cook a steak medium rare you are not a reputable steak restaurant. The cuts were very thin so that might have been part of the problem. The waiter who was knowledgeable, almost to the point of annoying, offered to bring another which we declined. It was an overall average dining experience. We would consider returning to the bar, but will look outside Des Moines when desiring a good steak.

Dinner was very good. The servers were great. The atmosphere here was very nice. Great bar area. Enjoyed everything about the experience. I wasn't paying so I couldn't give it a 5. Can't see someone being real disappointed.

Stopped in for happy hour with colleagues. Black Diamond martini was awesome and only $5! They also have lots of great food items on their happy hour special. Bar has great selection of fine spirits and has a great atmosphere!
