My husband and I stopped at the Fire Fly as we passed through Kittery one recent Friday morning. WE went in and found the restaurant less then 1/2 full, so we sat right down. And there we sat........five minutes later, we finally received menus and shortly thereafter, coffee, whille listening to the waitress complain thta her help was 'out back'.... More

We had a lovely breakfast at the Fire Fly Diner. I enjoyed a delicious (and filling) vegetarian omelet and my husband had the scrambled eggs. Our meal lasted us until suppertime! The service was very good - the waitress was pleasant and attentive. We enjoyed a nice chat with the owner. The place was nothing fancy but very clean and... More

We waited to be seated, then waited for food for almost 45 minutes, overhearing staff apologize to us and everyone else for their lateness, as if they had not anticipated being busy on a Sunday morning. After a long wait, both of our eggs were not done correctly but so sick of waiting we ate what was brought. The prices... More

After seeing the sign for "breakfast all day," we zoomed into the parking lot! Probably the best diner breakfast I've ever had....perfect eggs, perfect potatoes, good coffee, etc. The waitress was personable, and just the right degree of attentive. The diner is nothing in the way of decor, but clean and bright and like something fun out of the 60s....or... More

Taking an early spring vacation in Southern Maine, I ate here twice within a week. The Fire Fly Diner is located in the Pine Tree Plaza on Route 1 north of the outlets. The first impression was of a neat, orderly place. All the setups on the tables and booths were lined up just so. The place was also quite... More

Got a perfectly prepared egg, over-easy; crunchy, buttered toast; home fries of just the right texture; and a side of flavorful hash. Everything was tasty--a perfect mid-day breakfast. The tea wasn't the best. The staff was friendly and efficient--attentive but not hovering. A final note--the bathroom was very clean and had a good locking door (not always the case in... More

When you walk into the Fire Fly Dinner, you will quickly realize that you are not in cookie-cutter chain with fancy booths, carpeting on the floor and fancy décor. Friends, this is the real deal – a neighborhood “Mainer” restaurant where the locals in-the-know eat. Not much different than what you might have found back in 1955, before Maine got... More

Food was okay.....but we were SO frustrated by the time we got it, that it ruined the whole experience. We were told that they were "short a cook", but after reading some of the other reviews, I am thinking that was just an excuse? If you are in a hurry to go shopping....don't stop here!

The food was ok, my order was wrong, the waitress was friendly, but we waited over an hour for our breakfast! Not worth it!
