Decent Food

Have come here for dinner a couple of times. Drinks are good. Food is great. Service can be spotty but once you get to know the server's names, you can request someone's area. Beware of parking in the church parking lot, you'll get towed!

Noted for their pricy menu, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of their $5 lunch menu. Service was excellent, I am looking forward to dinner some night with the wife. Everyone was very happy with their food, and I think it went a long way to getting the project launched.

Nice atmosphere, good food. Extensive cocktail menu. My short ribs were very good, but not the best I've ever had though. I wish I had ordered the Steak Frites...the meal my son ordered looked amazing!

My wife and I dined at the bar last Friday evening and had a great experience. The atmosphere was nice - busy but not too loud, the service was excellent as was the food.

My wife and I eat here on Saturday night. I did call earlier in the day to set a reservation, which was helpful. We showed up 25 minutes early and were going to get a drink at the bar, but they had a table available which was nice. The place was not very large and because of that I found... More

This has been a restaurant that we have wanted to check out for a few years and the opportunity finally presented itself. We went to Firefly to celebrate a birthday and it didn't disappoint. Our reservation was for 6:15 on a Friday night, and upon getting to our table, our waitress already had water waiting for us. Think about the... More

We went for brunch with another couple and we were pleasantly surprised. Food was american with a flare. They had a build your own bloody mary bar. You could tell everything was fresh. We would definitely go back for dinner!
