Our B & B owner recommended this restaurant to us. We were not disappointed. This is a local type of restaurant, unique decor and food to die for. I had the duck and my husband had the pasta special. Both were plenty and delicious! I would recommend this restaurant.

My wife and I stumbled upon this place during a recent trip to Nashville. It was an interesting restaurant to say the least. The tables are a little too close together, making it a little congested and hard to maneuver within the restaurant. The walls and ceiling are filled (I mean, really filled) with all kinds of different decor -... More

We had a lovely lunch here with our two kids. I appreciated the "no cell phone zone" sign because it gave me an excuse to tell my kids they couldn't even ask to play on my phone while we waited for the food! Instead, we had a long game of "I spy" because the walls are covered in pictures, beads,... More

We went here for dinner before heading over to the late show at the Bluebird. It is crowded and full of crazy stuff all over including Christmas lights and tinsel creating a very funky atmosphere. The service was excellent and the food was delicious.

Great little place that will definitely surprise you. The decor is funky and cool. Lots of pictures posted on the wall with tinsel and Christmas lights to give a nice glow in the dining room. Service was fast and food was good. Great place to either snuggle in with your better half or for a great catch up with friends.

The bar is cozy. The dining area is comfortable with busy decor that will keep you looking at the wide variety of things on the walls which include plenty of celebrity photos, autographed, naturally. The staff is friendly and helpful. The food is delicious and there is a good variety on the hand written menu. If you want a burger,... More

My husband and I went here for lunch. He had the tuna and I had the warm roasted chicken salad. Both were delicious! I would highly recommend!

This little place near Green Hills is a funky place to stop in for a bite to eat. They have gluten free options and vegetarian too. It's not really a place to have a long romantic meal but it's good for lunch or dinner with friends. For some the interior may be overwhelming with all the "stuff" on the wall,... More

Food was great and the menu I think changes daily. Reminds me of the Red Bar in Seaside Florida. Don't let the outside deter you from going in with its Christmas lights everywhere. Its really a great restaurant.

Description
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.
