Was looking for a restaurant that had something tasty but healthy to offer and this place nailed it. Do yourself a favor and order that salmon with spaghetti squash. It's delicious.

Enjoyed our Sunday brunch before the Palace Theatre. We had a nice selection of egg and breakfast dishes. The raspberry muffin was yummy.

We have a child who graduated from a local prep school. This was a great post-crew races dinner locale. Food was excellent and service great but take off one star for my son's meal arriving late. Otherwise, the food was exceptional.

Our party of five dined at Firefly for a family celebration. Every staff member who interacted with us was warm and welcoming. The food was fabulous! From the fresh ingredients to the presentation, every dish was a delight. Fresh, delicious favorites updated with interesting seasoning and sides. Desserts were as consistently good as the entrees.

Thank Liz D
