    In terms of fried chicken and sides this is up there with the best. Tasty and crunchy but not oily. Sauces and sides are very tasty and not overly heavy as can be the case. Service is causal and friendly and they wanted to ensure we were happy. Cocktails are simple but well executed and matched the food. Also very good with a generous feed me menu st $39

    Overall, not too bad but not that great either. Service was on par, when we came in, we were about 3 minutes late, parking wasn’t the best but that’s not their issue although they gave our table to someone else and were clearing up another table upon arrival which was frustrating. On average it took a at least 10 minutes to check in on us for food order. The price as well for what your getting is not worth it, we have been to many fried chicken places one of which is just up the road and it’s a lot cheaper for what you pay and surprisingly more variety as well. I understand that how it appears to be marketed is for mid prices but honestly end of the day, it’s just fried chicken.. nothing really out of the ordinary for what you pay. I will say, we appreciate that the waitress we had tried to accommodate for my wife who was developing a migraine

    Bird exceeded expectations. The service was impeccable. Food is delicious and abundant. Dining for our 2-year anniversary, we didn't want to go overly fancy as we are often disappointed with some of the venues in Melbourne that don't match their $500+ price point. Bird however gives you that white tablecloth service without the price tag - in fact the service was better than most fine dining restaurants. The employees are attentive, fast, and efficient - with a touch of fun. We opted for the $39pp Feed the Coup offering. It included corn bread (this was incredible and should not be skipped), mac and cheese croquettes, housemade pickles, a flight of wings with different flavours to try, thighs, tenders and your choice of slides; we had mashed potato gravy which was decadent and delcious, slaw and chips. You can choose lots of sauces - our favourite was the blue cheese. Cocktails are unique and again - delcious. Lots of wine and beers on tap also. To finish, we were brought out a surprise piece of the basque cheesecake with a candle to celebrate our anniversary. This was such a lovely and delicious touch. Creamy and light - loved this. Overall 10/10 experience. Will be returning and telling everyone I know that they need to go. Please note, that they have two dining areas - one is more lux than the other.

    The food is delicious (we even got an extra chicken tender with our dish) and the cornbread with honey chipotle butter is delightful. Only con for us was the ginger beer from the tap was flat and sour. Otherwise great

    Such good food. The gluten free chicken is so good. Bonus that they also have gluten free beer (two bays pale ale). Only negative comment is we asked for the kids food to be spicy free and it wasn’t, it was actually really spicy to the point they couldn’t eat some of it.

    I had an amazing dining experience at this restaurant. The portion size of the chicken was very generous, making it great value for the price. The flavors were outstanding, and I especially loved the recommended dipping sauce, which they kindly gave us for free. The service was top-notch, ensuring that our visit was both enjoyable and memorable. I can’t wait to return for more of their delicious fried chicken!

    We had a great first time experience at Bird on Father's Day. Two Adults, two kids ( bill came to about 200$) this included drinks for everyone. We ordered alot of food. Everything was delicious. The highlight however was that baked cheesecake. I would order 10 of those anytime. Service was delightful, very attentive, fast ordering and food came out quickly. We will definitely be back. Thanks for the great service and food.
