Description: 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

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 Firefly should not be overlooked. The menu is not extensive, but the dishes are interesting, well prepared and very tasty. We found the prices to be quite reasonable and service from our waitress, Bridget, was friendly and efficient. We were only sorry that we could not stop back for another dinner. The clientele appeared to be a mix of locals and tourists with a few passing hikers thrown in. I can highly recommend the Beef Tenderloin Vermont Cheesesteak. We plan to stop back on our next visit to town.

Day off at Statton and traveled to Manchester for food and shopping. Firefly is on the main drag into town and was busy. I had the French onion soup while my friend had the soup of the day. Both were very good. Nice beer selection to accompany the chicken sandwich we shared. Very good, nicely seasoned, Avacado, lettuce tomato, brioche. Wait staff was exceptional and very welcoming. Will go back for dinner next ski season.

Stopped in on our way home from Okemo & so glad we did! We had poutine, tomato soup, & a philly cheese steak. Everything was home made and absolutely delicious. Kids were happy to see the kraft Mac & Cheese on the menu, too. Our waitress, Erica was super nice & we will absolutely make Firefly one of our Manchester staples.

A small, quirky little restaurant on the main drag in Manchester.

Staff was excellent - attentive, friendly and efficient.

Beer was good. Food was okay. Caesar salad with chicken was meh...bagged croutons, shredded lettuce and a little bit of chicken. Fly burger was pretty good, a bit over cooked, slaw on the side was decent, too.

Nice place to stop in for a beer.
