This is a new restaurant on the beach and the only Greek one. Sorely lacking in Greek offerings. More Italian and American than Greek. The waitress, first job, did not know anything about the menu, how the food was made or even how to serve the wine. Once tourist season is gone, this restaurant will have to really work to... More

I was here for the first time in July. I'm a little late on the review, I know :) My mom had the flounder, which she enjoyed, and I had the surf n' turf, which was a flat iron steak and crab cake. It was delicious! I also had a side of their broccoli salad, which was sooo good! We... More

We stopped here for dinner and were surprised to see the place not too busy. We usually don't stay at places without customers at dinner time as there's a reason for that. Anyway, we decided to take a chance as we were tired and didn't want to look further. My husband had meatloaf that was dried out and very salty... More

We stopped in for breakfast on our way home after a week at the beach. We were promptly greeted by the friendly hostess and, once seated, our server, Trish, was at our table to greet us and take our drink order while we studied the menu. They have a breakfast menu but the regular menu was available too. We stuck... More

They advertise kids eat free and so we took the hook and gave it a try. My kids LOVED the waitress! The chicken tenders were GREAT and the waffle fries were a bonus for on child, the other tried the battered rockfish with onion rings. YUCK, they were burnt on the outside and raw on the inside and onion rings... More

We found nothing special about the food. The decor was very nice. Not really a place to take small children. A bit on the expensive side.

For some reason the Firefly sign appealed to us on the way south and we stopped in for dinner. Really glad we did! Their sweet tea was great, but you're reading this to find out about the food so... Wife got shrimp and cheese grits, broccoli salad and applesause. Shrimp were very fresh and grits were a deliscious different texture.... More

We started with the fried pickles which had about an inch of grease in the bottom of the bowl. My wife's grilled chicken salad smelled and tasted like fish and was not edible. My fried chicken mac n cheese had no flavor and too much salt. The hushpuppies were greasy and fishy. Atmosphere was quiet and eerie. Not going back... More
