From the time we walked in the door to the time we left, amazing experience. Wonderful courteous staff, servers were amazing, food was delicious and the menu options all sounded delicious. My wife had shortribs off the dinner menu, I had crab cake benedict off the brunch menu and my mom had Huevos off of the brunch menu and all were delicious. Quick service. Could not have asked for a better brunch on a Sunday Morning.

The food was wonderful, as usual. I had a bit of an issue at the beginning since the waiter assigned to my table did not see me, but once it was brought to his attention, the service was impeccable. I had fried green tomatoes and French onion soup. As I had a cold I treated it with one of the Firefly's great Irish coffees. All in all, another great experience, and I will be back to try some of the newest additions to the menu.

My wife and I enjoy the firefly for both special occasions or just a quick stop for a drink on the deck in the summer. Staff is always great and food is wonderful. We were a late reservation for Valentine's Day but were not rushed, food was perfect and the waitress was as engaged as if we were her first customer's that night.

This is the second year that I have taken my boys to The Firefly Valentine's Tasting. I absolutely love The Firefly and this is the first year that my boys (ages 18 and 13) did the tasting. They loved it!! They want to continue doing this tradition every year. I can't say enough great things about the Firefly. Amazing dinner as usual.

Even though I made a reservation weeks ahead of time for Valentine’s Day, we were seated at a small table for two in a major through way by a wall separating one dining area from the bar and the beautiful patio area. There were constantly servers walking by our table, instead of a nice romantic ambiance. That being said, the service to our table was great (thanks Blake) and.food and wine pairings were awesome. We will definitely be back, but I will have to try to request a nicer table.

Our first time dine but we’d heard great things about the place. We live in St. Louis but we were in town for an event at the Performance Center so it was our opportunity to finally try Firefly. We’d like to come back during warmer months to enjoy the outside seating area and try some of the expanded menu items available when more of their garden produce is in season. But the inside seating has a great upscale yet inviting decor (including the table tops from local Boos Co). We had a very early reservation so it was very quiet early on, but the place started to fill up for Sat night and it became more energetic but not unpleasant. Our food & service were top notch. We could have made a meal from just the starters as so many sounded so good. The crispy crab purses were just yummy. We had great soups (clam chowder for my husband and I had the hearty chicken & rice). For entrees I had the bangers & mash and my husband had the firefly Montana. Both were well sized and excellent. For drinks I tried the new Violettes Delight and the White Peach Sangria and my husband had the Above 21 Capri Sun. We liked them all. Too full to try dessert but those options looked great too. If your travels take you through Effingham you simply must stop at Firefly Grill!

Heard about Firefly Grill via a billboard on the highway.
Great food. The portions were very large. We over ordered.
The Thai curry soup was thicker than I expected more like a hummus consistency.
The tuna poke was a shaved tuna versus sliced ahi tuna.
We were told the braised short ribs would be served on parapadella noodles. It was served with spaghetti noodles.

We did not know ahead of time that there was a limited menu for New Year’s Eve.
I had already decided on a ribeye steak only to find out it was not available because they were using a limited menu. Very disappointing.
That said- what we did order was very tasty. Sea bass and the filet.
Server Jordan was great.

Hi Mike! We hate to hear you weren't aware of our limited menu. Our staff should have let you know about our annual tradition when making your reservation.

Our server appeared to be a bit put out. I thought it was tacky that she was reaching over the cook side of our booth to grab our plates. For the cost she should’ve come around to the appropriate side to remove our dirty dishes rather than reaching over. Our friends ordered shrimp. It literally came with four and the buster tried taking two of them away without even asking if we were finished(btw: we weren’t!). It was my least favorite experience here
