Enjoyed the St. Louis ribs - were nicely cooked. Sauces excellent and range from sweet to spicy to very spicy. Sides very good, especially mac & cheese.

We got take out from Firefly's, and everything was great. Good selection, although it would be nice to see more beef rib options instead of just the one beef rib dinner. The sides are great, and there are lots of choices, and my husband and brother both really liked the chicken waffle dinner.

Disclaimer: a vegetarian at a BBQ restaurant? Yes, indeedy! Firefly's has the best veggie burger hands-down in the area! And their selection of barbeque sauces is awesome - my personal favorite is the Memphis BBQ sauce but they're all good! Nice selection of beers, both on tap and in bottles plus the condiment bar with complimentary four bean salad, pepperoncini's,... More

Loved this restaurant after it first opened, however, after a couple years in they seemed to have lost their way (often a sign of over-expansion when the owners attention is focused somewhere else), after several blazingly mediocre meals we had crossed it off our restaurant go-to list. Got invited there by a friend a couple months ago and I was... More

I have been to FireFly's many times since it opened several years ago. May not be the absolute best barbecue I've ever had, it comes close. Very good job on the basics; ribs, pulled pork, chicken and brisket. Most sides are average. Cucummber salad is very good. Portions are generous. Combo platters are a great way to mix and match....

Great barbecue and side dishes. A nice variety of different barbecue sauces. Wide variety of sides. Great for takeout as well. Also has a branch in Framingham, MA. Both are great for casual dining.

We were staying overnight in Marlborough and Firefly's caught my eye on the list from Trip Advisor so we decided to try it. It was really good! They greeted us as soon as we walked in the door and the waitstaff were very friendly and helpful showing us the "ropes". The drinks, including mixed drinks and soft drinks were absolutely... More

I'm surprised this place has no reviews because it has some great food and entertainment. Enjoyed a casual dinner with some friends saturday night. Waitress was very patient and helpful. Lots of food to choice from, so I got the dry-rubbed baby backed ribs. Meat was great along with the interesting side dish, sweet potato pecan pudding. Didnt even need... More

We booked the back room for a hockey dinner with players and families. The staff and food were great although I think we would have done better ordering a few simple dishes in chafing dishes instead of using the menus... Loved the BBQ chicken.
