We tried this place as my daughter is somewhat new to Nashville, so most restaurants are new to us when I visit. We were simply delighted with this restaurant and will go back. We opted for 3 apps rather than dinner and every choice was...More

Great service!! Knowledgeable people!!! I have celiacs and can be kind of a challenge when going out to eat! I was extremely impressed with the menu! My gluten free options were spelled out with no hassle or uncomfortable questions! And lots of options, almost everything!!!...More

Wait a minute. This is supposed to be one of the best kept secrets in Nashville? Ehh, very unimpressed!!! I'm baffled by the high ratings!!! I think patrons are so taken by the charming environment that they forgot how mediocre the food was. We started...More

We stopped here for lunch before heading to the airport because The Bluebird Cafe was closed. A unique Handwritten menu - we heard the menu is constantly changing. We ordered a burger with fries (which was highly recommended by the waitress) and I order the...More

Cannot recommend: The haphazard decor should've been a clue that the food would have been the same. I ordered the pasta of the day, which was comparable in flavor to Hamburger Helper served with moderately higher quality beef. My mother and aunt both had the...More

The menu at this place is very interesting. However, I really wonder how they passed fire inspection with all the stuff hanging off the wall and other seemingly fire hazards in the restaurant.

This is probably my fourth visit to Firefly. On this occasion I was treated to a Mother's Day lunch by my daughter. I ordered what I always do...the vegetarian plate. The flavor and scrumptiousness of this eight item dish cannot be described. On this day...More

I don't believe Firefly Grill in Nashville, TN is a live music venue. It is very close to the legendary Bluebird Cafe. My wife and I have now eaten there twice and highly recommend it. As far as the menu, it changes nightly... More

Firefly Grille was opened in the Spring of 2001 by Curt Cole, a born and raised Nashvillian, experienced restauranteur, and family man. Firefly is Curt's answer to Nashville's need for a restaurant providing high quality, sophisticated cuisine, without the fuss of the traditional fine dining experience. (Imagine wearing jeans and a t-shirt while eating a high quality filet...Isn't that the dream?) So, Firefly was born-a funky, cozy, and casual neighborhood restaurant, providing an eclectic, worldly, seasonally-changing menu with a southern twist. Firefly Grille uses high quality ingredients to create unique dishes, sourcing locally whenever possible. Located in the heart of Green Hills on Bandywood Drive, Firefly is about 300 yards away from the famous Bluebird Cafe, as well as a wide array of Nashville's finest local favorites. For fifteen years, Firefly has remained a local secret, voted "Best Neighborhood Restaurant" by the Nashville Scene twice.
