For a long time, I have received the birthday email awarding $$ off a lunch or dinner. My partner and I did lunch and the pulled pork paninis were superb in taste and had a tangy sweet taste. Also, we note the restaurant interior has been freshened with new furniture and other decor improvements. Thanks Owner Ryan German for a continuing value dining experience.

I ordered the shrimp and mahi with lemongrass sauce. In addition to the sauteed shrimp and mahi, the entree included shiitake mushrooms, bok choy, snap peas, edamame and bell peppers with a coconut lemongrass sauce served over rice. It was excellent!My wife had the jerk chicken pasta. Asparagus, mushrooms and sliced chicken were cooked in a Parmesan cream sauce served over bow tie pasta. It was very good.We recommend this place as a nice relaxing stop on your next trip to or from the Delaware beaches.

We went for lunch and had an excellent meal. I had a chicken sandwich with fries and it was perfect. Decent prices and friendly staff. They also had some delicious bread. I’ll be back next time I’m at the mall. TouristMD, thanks for the wonderful review! So glad to hear that you loved everything. We look forward to serving you again next time you visit the mall.

On the good side, the service was prompt and food was quite good. I particularly liked my roast beef. My wife, an oenophile, didn’t have high expectations, but she ordered a second glass of their house red, something she rarely does in this sort of establishment.While I recognize it is a sports bar (even though there are only six TVs), the noise level was very high, coming not from fans but from patrons whose favorite means of communications seemed to be a yell.

Food & drinks were excellent as usual but the service was lacking. We had 2 servers for our group of 11 celebrating our friends nuptials and my husband had to ask 3 times for a cold glass for his beer. Not the typical service we normally have.Nancy,Thank you for taking the time to share your recent experience at Firebirds. I was so glad to hear you all still enjoy our food and beverages but I was very disappointed to hear that your server was not attentive. Your feedback is invaluable to us so I will be sharing your experience with our management team.Thank you.
