Great place, very nice staff. Appetizers are awesome. Entrees were excellent. Would definitely like to try more of the menu! Had my first Manhattan!

We have gone to "Fire Fly" forever, even when it was named the "310 Room" and have always enjoyed it. The menu items are somewhat unusual in our experience, even "eclectic", if you might find that description helpful. I like the "small plates" a lot. Quite a variety of different choices, good draft beers, fun desserts, but probably not for... More

There is very nice outdoor seating if there weather is warm. We have enjoyed some great meals here. I enjoy the Salmon Grilled Salmon, Black Bean Avocado Cake, topped with Sour Cream and homemade Salsa from the small plates menu.

Sadly this visit was the worst food my husband and I can remember having. They have a pita chip and hummus starter. The pitas were deep fried with sugar on it, very nasty with the hummus. I ordered the walleye which was not fresh and the worst fish I've ever had. It had a cheese sauce with it that was... More

We made our annual trip to the Fire Fly and were not disappointed. It was a great evening of fantastic food and energetic atmosphere. We will visit again anytime

My husband and I were looking for a place to eat one night and we stumbled upon Fire Fly. It looked fun and had a good looking menu so we decided to stop in. Our server was great and the food lived up to our expectations. Definitely going to visit again!

Stopped in on a Sunday so the menu was shorter than the regular menu. The folks I was with, eat there semi-regularly and love the sushi. I ordered the special for the evening fish on top of a olive, quinoa salad. Very Good not great. Fish was done nicely and the flavors complemented each other. Add in the micro brew... More

Our visit started with waiting quite a while for a server to acknowledge us. We had edamame, prosciutto wrapped asparagus, and Brussel sprouts for appetizers. Asparagus was over-grilled and brussel sprouts were almost raw. Had sushi rolls, chicken sandwich, satay, and a salad for entrees. All were OK, but nothing to go back for. Our server acted like we were... More

I ate at Firefly once before, but it has been a few years. This time I went with siblings and it was late at night, 11:30pm. They closed at Midnight, however I never felt rush and even at 12:05 we were encouraged to stay for dessert by Em, or her actual name is Emili S. She was SO cool, and... More

Enjoyed dinner here while visiting Traverse City. The special salad (2 scallops, baby mozzarella, and red onion on fresh greens) was delicious, altho a lot smaller than I expected for $18. My husband chose from the small plate menu: tempura shrimp sushi (mushy rice but otherwise delicious), and beef skewers which were great. Skylar, our server was wonderful.
