Created by Dennis Thompson, Firebirds currently has 17 locations nationwide and looks forward to further growth in 2010. Its contemporary yet inviting setting sports dark woods, bold colors, an exposed kitchen and stone fireplaces. The aroma of steaks, chicken, seafood and burgers grilling over open hardwood flames enhances the ambience. Private label wines and signature cocktails are available to pair up with food selections
