We also ordered the Steak & Potato entree (OK), Sesame Tuna (Good), Crab Rangoon (Good), and 4 regular beers. Total was $65 + tip. The atmosphere was nice, food... read more

Its unfortunate that you left a bit hungry, our goal has been to give affordable options so you can share and experience several items. We have started to host AfterGlow events. AfterGlow is a party... More

I have been to this restaurant many times as has my family and friends, but I will never go back again! We had reservations for 8:30 and when we arrived, we were told we would have to wait. We sat at the back bar and waited patiently, for an hour. The two couple next to us were doing the same... More

We visited the Fire Fly for the first time on our anniversary this week and we were very glad we did. The service was great, the food selection was outstanding and the prices were excellent for the value of the food served. We cant wait to go back again!!

Try the small plates, well executed and reasonably priced. Loved the Brussel sprouts and the calamari. Upbeat atmosphere and cool outdoor searing right on the river. Good service and fun place to enjoy an afternoon.

Fire Fly is one of those "Go To" places when you want a lighter fare or a complete meal for lunch, dinner, or evening snack. Try the smallplates and have a variety of good food.

We went with another couple and had the Thanksgiving buffet. Excellent selections in addition to the traditional fare such as sushi, fish, and tenderloin. Lively atmosphere, good for kids too.

We dined here for dinner in March and decided to return for brunch yesterday. The menu was much smaller than the dinner menu. 4 egg dishes, a few sandwiches and 4 sushi options. I had an egg scramble dish which was good, but may have needed a little more flavor of some sort. The only thing that gave the dish... More
