Description: this used to be Maxwell's Flat Road Grill, which sold about a month ago, and by the way, is MUCH better, you really need to list it, btw, I am a regular, but that is neither here nor there. They are doing very well with both locals and tourists which is a welcome change, phone number is the same, owner is Susan and Jon French, please give them visibility on this site, for the record, this location has a deep and long history, starting as the Taco House in the 70's- 80's, OTL (Out to Lunch) in the 80's-90's, then Maxwell the past 9 years , now Firefly. People still come in and call it the Taco House, imagine that,,, regards, wmfox@att.net if any questions

We stopped on our traveling route. There was a Mother 's Day special, all meals were $5.11 !! Our meals were very good, the atmosphere was a nice pub / tavern with tv's showing golf and the waitress was excellent.

We tried this restaurant last night. It was packed, in part because someone was celebrating a 50th birthday in the bar area. The food was very good. The service was friendly and quick. The noise was almost unbearable. There is something very wrong with the acoustics because the noise is absolutely amplified by the structure and fixtures. Hopefully some of... More

We hit this spot every year on our way to Dorset. Louise our waitress is lovely and smiley. Food is good, hearty and arrives piping hot! Recommend the Long Trail Chili and Burger with Avocado. Nice beer selection with a quiet, clean bar. A good stop for lunch! Not too expensive especially for Manchester. Quality meal, good price, nice atmosphere!

We had dinner here while staying in Manchester for the night. The food was good and they had a nice selection of beer. We called on our way and were able to reserve a booth so when we arrived we were able to walk right in and sit down. Service was a bit on the slow side but we weren't... More

Now for some great news during these frigid days: Yup, you guessed it!! It's the yearly return of Jon's Chesapeake Bay crab soup. Takes me back to my MD days. This is just the thing to warm you from the inside out. If crab isn't your thing, Jon also makes the best French Onion soup I have ever had......thx, Jon!!!

Good beer list, friendly local type service and great wings. We were there for the 50 cent special night, four flavors (Asian is the best) keep them coming.

Nothing special about this place. The salads were fresh, burgers a bit overcooked. Average prices, for average food.

To be fair the Firefly is a fairly small restaurant/bar combination in an old building with minimal sound proofing. The night we were there the crowd at the bar was watching a loud TV and talking in very loud voices. It was impossible to talk to my husband across the table from me due to the noise. The food was...
