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... More

My wife and I had lunch here one Sunday, looking for a quick bite and figured we would give it a shot. Nice interior, good service, good food. I had a BLT which was just as I ordered, with nice hand cut fries. My wife had French onion soup, which she said was very good.

I had a gift certificate for Firefly so my boyfriend and I went for dinner one night. The menu was small but good. They used a lot of fresh ingredients which was nice and the service was pretty good. Nothing amazing but a good place to try out.

The "Fly" is a local's kind of place with excellent food and choices. The bartender we had (Tom) was friendly and very helpful. The burgers are great as are the wings. Draft beer selection was good and they pour a very fair drink.

Met a group of coworkers for a few drinks and appetizers after work. Servers and bartender were friendly and ensured our large group was taken care of. Cold beer, wings and great friends!

What a great find! As soon as we got out of the car we smelled something good. My husband had the Rachel ( kind of like a Ruben) and I had the chicken salad sandwich with bacon. So delicious. The weather was perfect so we sat on the deck. Service was just right, not rushed but not sitting and waiting... More

after trying to find a place for a nice dinner on a Monday night in August, as all the fancier ones are closed, we ended up here. A bar with booths on other side of wall. It was clean, limited menu, but my husband chose the Baked seafood which he said was great. I had a Rueben, nothing special, no... 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
