Great food, nice atmosphere. Some people were dressed up, others casual. Definitely have the "She Crab" soup.

We had the grilled filet, the steak medallions, the stuffed filet and a turtle type bread pudding with homemade ice cream. It was all incredible! And the early bird prices were the cheapest we spent all week.

Classy, great food, professional bartenders, great menu with amazing selections, and lots of seating. We enjoyed the wedge salad, crab cakes, and medallions. We never have dessert but had to have the cream brûlée! Exceptional all around. Fabulous dining experience!

This visit was not nearly as great as all of our previous trips to Firefly. My filet was overcooked not once, but twice. The appetizers and drinks were great. My husband had a pasta dish that was good, but not spectacular. We will try again...More

Excellent service and excellent food. Use open table to make reservations. We ate crab cakes for an appetizer and then rib eyes for dinner. They were cooked perfectly!
