We came upon this little restaurant while strolling along some of the side streets. There was no wait; we were seated outside right away. The server was friendly and the menu was intriguing. Although I really wanted the chicken and waffles (server said they were well known for this dish), their chicken delivery was running late and they did not have any chicken on hand yet. So I ordered puffins - which were a delectable hybrid of pancakes and muffins with an amazing topping. Oh my...so good! My husband had the cheeseburger and garlic fries and also raved about them. It may not be a 5 star atmosphere, but it is nice and the food was incredible. I would go there again and again and again.

We are from the Ft. Lauderdale area and visit the Keys quite often. We like to go to Blue Heaven when we have a chance as we love the food and atmosphere there. This last trip, that was our initial destination. After waiting about an hour of an hour and a half estimated wait, we decided we would try Firefly located a block or so down (just discovered by walking around waiting). All of us (3 in our party) were so glad we did!

The food wasn't good... it was AMAZING. It far exceeded Blue Heaven. Collectively we had the Mimosa, Heart Breaker, Shrimp and Grits, and Cheeseburger with garlic fries. EVERYTHING was delicious and well worth the $. The only slightly negative criticism was the grits may be a tad salty for some people...to which we mentioned - the critique well accepted and acknowledged.

We will DEFINITELY return again and highly recommend to anyone visiting in the area! It was easily the best food we've had in Key West to date.

We loved everything about this restaurant, the chef's special of the day was perfect. Excellent flavors...shrimp, artichoke, kale in wine sauce, and our waiter was very attentive and pleasant. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting in a lovely dinner with spouse!

Firefly is a few blocks off the beaten restaurant path in Key West, but worth the effort to find. Our breakfast was excellently prepared and delicious. We shared each selection, including the bread basket, scrambled eggs, home fries, and cheddar grits--too much food for the two of us. Next time we'll have one less selection; not sure which one we'd leave off list though as everything was excellent.
