Firebirds was founded by Dennis Thompson, who also co-founded Lone Star Steakhouse & Saloon and was an original owner of Fox and Hound Bar & Grill, and Doug Glendenning, former president of Lone Star. Thompson spent several years in Colo. where he drew from his dining experiences to develop the food and flair of Firebirds.

“From cutting the perfect steak that is done in our kitchen, to selecting the best blend of herbs and spices, each dish is prepared on site from start to finish,” said Chef Nick Smith. “We pride ourselves on our knowledgeable and gracious staff whose mission is to provide the best dining experience customized for every guest.”
