Really enjoyed our experience here for a bachelorette party. Able to accommodate separate checks and pretty quick service once we got seated. The small plates portion size was a great portion for getting full but not stuff. Great drink options and they even made us some fantastic sangria even... read more

My husband and I used to visit Firefly regularly and thoroughly enjoyed everything! The food and the waitstaff were both great, and still are for the most part. But the management is terrible. I witnessed the general manager insult one of his employees while cursing at them for a simple mistake. It was very very unprofessional (especially when we were... More

This place was recommended by our hotel. Large selection of Michigan microbrews, wines and extensive cocktail menu as well. Really something here for everyone in our group. Loving the beers from Shorts brewery. Also enjoyed the TC distillery bourbon. The spicy tuna roll was so delicious I wish I hadn't already had dinner, we would have had more. Great staff... More

We made reservations for 18 for a Bachelorette Party. The table was ready right when we got there, we had 2 waiters so service was quick and they accommodated us for separate checks. The food is excellent as are the drinks!!! It's a fun atmosphere!

Wife and I went for our anniversary dinner. The food really was excellent and the wait staff was great as well. The seating arrangements left much to be desired...felt like we were crammed in with the other patrons. The music was screaming loud like it was a club...so loud we couldn't even talk to each other...if it's regularly like this... More

Every time I am in town I make a point to come into this place. The food is great, the employees are all nice and well groomed. The one downer is the menu is constantly changing. My aunt and myself always come in for the 4oz steak and I was sad to see it was taken off. But all in... More

I was very excited to visit this restaurant, but I was a little disappointed. My spicy tuna roll was pretty sloppy, but had decent flavor, and my husband absolutely loved his unagi. Our main course was a different story. The curry bowl had fresh tasting vegetables, but lacked curry flavor. Very bland. The same with the seared tuna. Very little... More

I've been to Fire Fly several times and have always enjoyed the food. The staff are very helpful and informative, and provide excellent service. I like their "small plate" options, allowing a diner or a group to get several things, at a reasonable price. They generally have interesting artwork on display from local artists, which I enjoy, and the view... More

There were five of us for dinner. We had reservations so we were seated right away. They had an extensive wine & beer list. Three of us had salads for our meal, which were kind of small. Another had blue gill in a basket which was very good. They specialized in tapas as well. All and all it was nice... More
