Dinner was adequate at best. I had bacon wrapped steak tips, asked for medium well. They were pretty dried out, flavor was a little gamey unless smothered in BBQ sauce. I asked for extra veggies instead of potatoes and got steamed broccoli- absolutely nothing on it. It was actually just plain steamed broccoli. For $22, I expected flavor. Waitstaff was... More

I have been here several times both for business and with friends as well as my wife for lunches and dinner. The place never fails to impress me. Staff with a positive attitude, attentive, know their jobs and are confident. The food is good and priced to please. Highly recommended-they even have parking and are kid friendly!

Met a former colleague I had not seen in more than 30 years. Excellent service. Our waitress was very patient in returning several times to take our order. Great bar drinks and some excellent wine choices. Wonderful "light dinner" offerings. We were able to make reservations.

We have eaten here several times for dinner, but today we enjoyed lunch with a business friend. The food and service were excellent and they even have a great $5. lunch menu!! $5.00????? Yes! Chicken Ceasar roll up with home made chips! Can't beat that anywhere. The larger items on the menu were all great too. Nice, clean atmosphere.

My husband and I went for a date night out. The atmosphere and food were beyond our expectations. I had the white wine sangria it was amazing. The prices are higher than average for the area but I felt it was worth it.

After picking my wife up at the Manchester airport we stopped at Firefly for dinner. I had shrimp/scallop scampi and my wife had chicken piccata. The shrimp and scallop in my dish was cooked perfectly and my wife said her chicken piccata was delicious. In addition the atmosphere was very inviting. I saw a few other menu items that I... More

I usually go here a couple times a month for lunch. The food is consistent. I rate it 8 put of 10. The service can sometimes be slow, but knowing this I make sure I have the time. The chicken Caesar wrap is great. The prices are very good for the quality of food served. I will continue to come... More

I have tried this place on three different occasions over the past year just in case they were having an off night, and also because I am fair. All three dishes I ordered were no better than bar food. Maybe my expectations were too high but I wouldn't recommend unless you don't have very high standards.

Had dinner here on Mother's Day. Was surprised that we were able to order from the regular menu. Most restaurants restrict Holidays to a limited menu, so this was a pleasant surprise.

Visited here with a group of business associates. They had a good variety on their menu, but I was craving something basic so chose the fish and chips. We had calamari as an appetizer and it was cooked expertly. My fish and chips were great. The atmosphere was warm, not crowded and provided a good environment for socializing. Someone in... More
