This was an amazing sushi meal and I cannot wait for another visit so I can go back. Great service and location. We shared about 8 different rolls. Fresh and very high quality.

We arrived on a Sunday and were looking for some good food in town and this happen to be the only one open near the main strip. It had really great food and atmosphere. After living in Flint it was nice to find a classy place that had great prices and great food. The service was great as well. My... More

Can’t believe that we have been visiting the Traverse City area for many years, and we just finally got around to dining at Fire Fly. We’ve had friends that recommended it, but if only we would have known how good the food really is, we would have visited a lot sooner. The restaurant atmosphere is uniquely delightful – bright, contemporary,... More

My Husband and I had been to Fire Fly about 2 years ago and loved it. We couldn't wait to try dinner there again. We went and had a sushi roll for an appetizer which didn't seem fresh. Then we tried 3 small plates, which none were worth the $35. The Walleye was very bland and disappointing for the price... More

Well the idea that this is your only review and that you mention Walleye which is not a small plate that we offer makes me question what is going on. Firefly is a bustling successful restaurant on the boardman river in downtown Traverse City. We have been rolling sushi for 12 years with only the finest and freshest seafood available.... More

1/3 off any choice on the menu. The selections are excellent-from Tapas to full plates-lots of diversity and fantastic flavors.

Great menu of small plates, entrees and drinks. Nice patio in the summer months. Suitable for groups.

Knowing I'm gluten friendly, friends who have recently moved to Traverse City were trying to find our group some nice restaurants that would please everyone. Firefly has many, many gltuen free options, as well as ones that they will adapt when requested. Our server even brought me tortilla chips to replace the homemade pita chips (which everyone else said were... More

Food was okay. Avocado salad was crave worthy, and bread and hummus was really good. Rest was mediocre - including walleye and steak. Service not good. Martini not made as requested. Had to ultimately go to bar myself to get it fixed. Menu had lots of interesting things so will probably give it another try.

We sat outside on a beautiful fall day. Service outside was prompt, even though there were only a few of us sitting outside. We had the spinach salad, which was excellent. Great dressing, lots of strawberries. The pulled pork was very good. The chicken salad with fries and salsa seemed a little weird, but we gave it a try. It... More
