My wife and I came here after spending a full day moving into our apartment on Beech. We came around 8:45 or so and it was dead but service was unbelievably slow. We had the go go bread which was insane, highly recommend it.

Went to Firefly about 3 weeks ago. Service was excellent, our waiter was very nice and helpful. We had chicken and steak tips. I was pretty disappointed in my chicken and my friend was not so happy with her tips. I actually complained to our waiter that it was the toughest chicken I've ever eaten. Since I have been at...

I picked this restaurant to take my friends to on our college's homecoming weekend. We were all so happy with the choice. Great atmosphere, DELICIOUS food, and an excellent server. Lots of choices on the food and drink menu's. Can't wait to go back.

Great location, menu, plenty of parking available. My friend and I were in a hurry, and asked the waiter if we could make it a quick trip - we were out of there in less than an hour.

Our dinners were very good. The service was very pleasant. The restaurant is attractive. Our only caveat is the noise level, it is extreme. Be prepared to be loud, as will the people you are with, and still miss much of the conversation. Sitting in a booth is a big help but still... I hope the owners get around to... More

Friend and I returned to Firefly for lunch. I wanted to thank him for watching my house when wife and I were away. He had a great hamburger with salad and also a bowl of onion soup. In addition to my delicious 603 Winni draft beer, I had a Cobb salad. Fantastic lunch.

The asparagus panzanella salad was amazing!! My husband ordered the grilled steak tips and I ordered the shrimp and scallops scampi; both were very good. We shared the... More

We found Firefly American Bistro on OpenTable, read the reviews, and decided to try it after church. We made reservations, arrived early, and were seated just a bit before our scheduled reservation, so no worries there. The waitress we had was friendly, answered questions, and kept the water glasses full. We decided to try the Firefly Eggs Benedict, a muffin,... More

Recently moved to the area, we sought a good dinner before attending Cirque de Soleil. We parked the car and headed towards Elm Street. Quickly we saw the Firefly Bistro on the right in an old storefront with a garden terrace beside it. We opted for indoors and AC. What a delight! This place is really first class. Interesting menu.... More
