We stopped here for a quick bite and a drink and decided to have a second drink and hang out for a bit.This is a locals bar restaurant and we felt at home here. A cool place to hang out.

We stopped on our way home. Grilled marinated chicken sandwich was really good. Last two bites tasted like propane. Sweet potato fries excellent. The fly burger with American cheese was good. Tasted like propane too. Overall good eats

It was unanimous. The fries here are the best you will ever have. Everything else was delicious too, not a large selection of beer on tap but enough we all found something we wanted more of. Excellent service. Will definitely return.

Local Hot Spot For some reason Firefly is not listed on the Manchester tourism website. Perhaps it is because it is a bit of a local hangout, just one room with a small dining room and a bar that seems to collect locals, but the...More

this used to be Maxwell's Flat Road Grill, which sold about a month ago, and by the way, is MUCH better, you really need to list it, btw, I am a regular, but that is neither here nor there. They are doing very well with both locals and tourists which is a welcome change, phone number is the same, owner is Susan and Jon French, please give them visibility on this site, for the record, this location has a deep and long history, starting as the Taco House in the 70's- 80's, OTL (Out to Lunch) in the 80's-90's, then Maxwell the past 9 years , now Firefly. People still come in and call it the Taco House, imagine that,,, regards, wmfox@att.net if any questions
