Fried Green Tomatoes
red pepper vinaigrette, chevre cheese, garden herb
10oz Flank Steak
Food was great. Sat outdoors on a beautiful evening - was very nice. Our server was great.
Thanks for the great review, John! We appreciate your kind words.
Victoria was the highlight of our first time at Firefly grill! She is definitely in the top five waitresses we have ever had. The creme brûlée was the best part of the meal - the steaks were fine - but my filet was on the tough side especially considering the price. We’ve had a lot of great steaks and these were just ok. The fried green tomatoes were great - really enjoyed this preparation. Very creative. I really wanted to try the crab cakes but they were out. It’s a cool restaurant in a great setting. We will be back again.
WOW! This is awesome. We will be sure to share your kind words with your server, Victoria. Hate to hear you didn't enjoy your steaks. Please let us know in the future real time, so we can do our research on why this is happening and how we can make it better for future visits. We SO appreciate you, and hope to see you again soon for a round of crab cakes. Cheers!
They never disappoint!! After 20 hours on the road and a couple years since we are there, it was as good as ever! Will always make a point to visit.
You are awesome! Thank you so much for the great review, and making the long trip to see us. We super appreciate you!
Outstanding as always. My NY Strip was perfectly prepared, great sear and crust, super cut of meat well over and above any chain. Among the best I've ever eaten. The scallops with risotto are always excellent. Fried Green Tomatoes are super, made even better with the topping. Service is super. Firefly is always outstanding.
Thanks for the great review! We appreciate you so much and are so glad to hear you had such an outstanding experience. We hope to see you again soon - Cheers!
Food was pretty good. But thought the price was way too high.
Hi Jules! We appreciate your review, and that you enjoyed your visit. Our pricing is driven by sourcing the best ingredients and with the global pandemic, this has been tough the last couple of months. We are doing our best to make sure we serve the quality of food we are known for, but keep pricing fair to our guests. We will do our research to see how we can make this better going forward. Thank you!
We enjoyed it very much
Thanks for the awesome review!
Exceptional food and service. Loved the atmosphere. We will be back.
Thanks for the awesome review, Jerry! We are so glad you enjoyed yourselves, and can't wait to serve you again soon - Cheers!
Firefly Grill is a delight. We brought friends from out of town and they were very impressed with the food, service and atmosphere. People were clearly glad to see us. The food was awesome!
Thanks for the great review... and we are so appreciative that you chose our restaurant to host your friends. Thank you so much for your kind words, and we can't wait to serve you again very soon. Cheers!
Really enjoyed the entire meal from the Minestrone soup to the main entree of roasted chicken and mashed potatoes .Enjoyed the brownies with ice cream
Thanks for the great review, Dwight! We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your visit with us and can't wait to serve you again on your next trip. Cheers!
Everything was wonderful! We will definitely be back!
Thanks for the awesome review!
We live nearly two hours away. We’ve introduced several friends to the Firefly and now we make the trip several times a year and as often as we can. I know the friends that we’ve introduced to the Firefly have brought their friends too. We’ll be back again soon.
You are awesome! Thank you so much for the continued visits and non-stop recommendations to your friends and family... We appreciate you!
We were in for the corvette show but always love to keep in touch with a young man that works at FireFly. This was the first year since we have been coming to FireFly that Blake didn’t wait on us. Jennifer was assume and we did get to talk with Blake. It’s nice to catch up.
Hi Bitsy! Thanks for the great review.... We are truly blessed with the best visitors that continue to come see us every year during Funfest. Thank you for your continued visits and we are so glad to hear you got to catch up with Blake. Wishing you all the best!
It was nice to be in a busy restaurant, again. It was a bit noisier than usual, but the back porch was as lovely as ever. Good food, pretty views, wonderful company. The Firefly never disappoints.
Thanks for the awesome review, Libby! We are so glad to have a busy and booming restaurant after being closed for so long. We appreciate your visit and are so happy to hear you had such a great time. Thanks again!
Excellent. Food and service were great. We had mushroom ravioli and Asian porkchops which were outstanding. The simple salad and apple dessert were also yummy. Definitely will go back again when we are in the area.
Thanks for the awesome review, Cindi! We are so glad you got to enjoy a meal with us on your visit through Effingham. We appreciate your kind words and hope to see you again very soon. Cheers!
What a great experience. We come here every year for Corvette Funfest (except 2020 due to covid). Food is spectacular and always consistent. Do wish they would bring back the original Corn Chowder.
Hi Dennis! Thanks for your kind review and continued visits when you travel to Effingham. We sure appreciate it! We wish we could serve our sweet corn chowder all year long, but sweet corn season usually wraps up for us in August and we have to get creative. We appreciate your review, and are already anticipating your visit in 2022! Cheers!
We ate outside- the weather was beautiful, our waitress was prompt, friendly and helpful! Food a great blend of flavors and I recommend the coffee toffee dessert!
Thanks for the great review! We are so glad you enjoyed your experience and will be sure to share your review with our staff. Hope to see you again soon for another Coffee Toffee - Cheers!
Everything from service, food, atmosphere was great.
Thanks for the awesome review!
Food here is always fresh and tasty--from fabulous onion ring starters to creme brûlée at the finish. And waitstaff is friendly and just attentive enough. We never stay in Effingham without eating at Firefly Grill!
YUJM! Sounds like you had a great experience and we are so glad to hear it. Thank you so much for your continued visits and support... We appreciate you!
Excellent as usual!!! I just love the atmosphere, service and food at The Firefly Grill.
Thanks for the awesome review... We appreciate your continued visits!
Thanks for the amazing review!
Dinner wasn’t as good as it usually is. Paid $45 for a 6 oz filet, ordered medium and was served well done. Service was extremely slow. Waiter appeared to have too many tables. Drinks didn’t come until after appetizer almost done. One square of toilet paper left in stall. Didn’t complain, though as food and service are normally excellent. Must have been an off night. Will still go back.
Thank you so much for your honest review. We hate to hear firefly wasn't up to par on your most recent visit. We strive for each & every one of our fireflies to have the best experience when coming to enjoy a meal with us. In the future, please let us know real time when something isn't right. This allows us to replace your item & coach our staff real time. We appreciate your comments so much & will be working hard to make sure your next visit is top notch. Thank you again.
The food and staff were excellent. The restaurant is just a cool place to dine. Some of the prices were pretty high for southern Illinois.....$40 for 6 oz. filet, ala carte. Pretty pricey. The staff said it came with just a small "dab" of mashed potatoes, so my husband ordered a full order. The dab was almost as big as a side dish! Food flavors were excellent. And we would probably go back again if we were in the area.
Thanks for the great review! We are so glad you found us on your journey, and hope to be able to serve you again very soon. Cheers!
It’s always worth the drive from Chicago! Very relaxing outdoor seating, excellent quality and service!
Thanks for making the trip... We appreciate you and your kind words!
Firefly not nearly as good as in the past.
Way over priced on many items.
Hi Bill. Thank you for your honest review. We hate to hear you didn't enjoy your visit, but appreciate your feedback. Our pricing is driven by finding the best ingredients and staying out of their way. Covid has really put a damper on the food supply chain, so we are doing our best to keep our standard, but also give our guests the best and most fair experience. We will take a look at our menu and review with your comments. Thank you.
Loved our waitress! She is the best! The view was beautiful with the fountain.
So glad to hear you had such a great visit with us! We appreciate your kind review, and can't wait to serve you again very soon. Cheers!
Delicious food always an extra upscale to every dish. Waitresses wonderful and helpful.
Thanks for the great review... We appreciate your visit!
I love firefly, last night the food was fine. It's usually great. Maybe it was me
Thanks for the honest review! We appreciate you leaving feedback for us and will do our best to ensure you have a great visit in the future.
Great service, great locally sourced food, and a fantastic vibe! Can't wait to go back!
Awesome review - thank you so much! We are so appreciative of your kind words, and hope to see you again soon. Cheers!
It was a lovely Sunday for a ride to Effingham for brunch. The menu had many favorites for either dinner or brunch. Nice wine list to compliment the meal. The small plate selection is great a s we had several for our brunch/ lunch.
The chef is always creative and many wonderful tastes.
Thanks for the great review, Lynn! We are so glad you found us on your Sunday drive, and will be sure to share you kind words with our team and chefs. We are so grateful for fireflies like you. Thanks again!
At Firefly Grill the food is always outstanding. It is fresh, seasoned perfectly & the presentation is always appealing. It is my favorite restaurant in this area. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a special dinner & dining experience.
Thanks for the great review, Sheila! We appreciate your recommendation and kind words... It truly means the world to us! We hope to see you again very soon. Cheers!
The service and food here never disappoints! Thank you for a lovely birthday brunch!
Thanks for the amazing review! We are so glad you got to celebrate your birthday with us. Cheers!
Brunch is a must--this was my first time for brunch--they have some standard items and some innovative ones as well. The food and cocktails were great; and you can't miss dessert--the creme brulee is wonderful--it had a proper crisp crust of sugar and fresh berries--worth every calorie
Thanks for the amazing review, Rochelle... And your continued visits! We are so glad you risked ALL the calories to see us this weekend, and can't wait to serve you again. Cheers!
loved the atmosphere outside and it was a great break from our motorcycle ride
Thanks for the great review! We hope to serve you again soon - Cheers!
Firefly never disappoints--I had lunch and brunch there over this weekend. The food is flavorful and inventive. I had sea bass which was served as sort of an inventive pho; fried green tomatoes; the lamb sausage avocado toast, which is great if you like lamb; and creme brulee. I highly recommend treating yourself.
Hi Rochelle! Thank you so much for the great review and for your continued visits. We know you are a frequent flyer and appreciate you so much! Thank you for your kind words, and we hope to see you again soon. Cheers!
Great restaurant! My ‘go to’ whenever traveling through. The Fat Daddio dessert is a must.
We are thrilled to be your 'go to'! Thanks for your kind words and for coming to see us... We hope to see you soon for another Fat Daddio - Cheers!
The food was amazing! Even though we live 5 hours away, we plan to return soon! The staff were exceptional and funny. Loved the ambiance and the local CSA concept
5 hours away and still plan to return? You all are AWESOME! Thank you so much for your review and kind words. We truly appreciate it, and can't wait to see you again soon. Cheers!
Food as usual was outstanding. Always changing and interesting. We stand amazed with the excellent staff of wait staff, servers and greeters. We had a new young man as a waiter and he couldn’t have been more helpful.
Outstanding? Wow - You are awesome! thanks for the great review. We will be sure to share your kind words with our staff, and we hope to be able to serve you again very soon. Cheers!
Had a wonderful evening! Would like to request Victoria for future visits. She is awesome and represents your business perfectly!
We will be sure to share your kind words with Victoria - Isn't she awesome? We are so glad to hear you had such a wonderful experience with us, and can't wait to serve you again very soon. Cheers!
The freshest shrimp I have found in the Midwest. Hugh and never frozen
You cannot go wrong with any beef or soup item. Even the bread and buns appear to be homemade
Outstanding selection of bourbon, great wines as well as interesting appetizers.
Thanks for the amazing review! We are so glad you enjoyed your visit and appreciate your kind words. Can't wait to see you again soon for another round of shrimp - Cheers!
Thanks for an amazing Birthday dinner - great service food and drinks
Thanks for the great review and celebrating with us! You all are the best!
