Don't bother. The manager and hostess were extremely rude even though their place was EMPTY on a Thursday night.

Best Diner around !!! Great food and wonderful service. Fridays serve fresh fish. Delicious ! Worth trying !
Best Salty Spicy Shrimp I have ever tasted. The Bonsai Peking Ravioli's can't be beat and the House Fried Rice is a winner every time. Top all that off with the Bonsai house blend Scorpion bowl and you have a meal and drink that will keep you coming back again and again. Wonderful staff, prompt service and lovely updates make this hidden gem worth the drive from anywhere.
First time at Firefly. My drinks were great; coconut mojito and jalapeño margarita. Apps and dinner was perfect! My husband's meal was not what he expected but the staff was very accommodating. Can't wait to try it again
Food is great and very reasonable prices. Ive learned to come early because it gets very busy. It has a nice and quuet atmosphere like a country kitchen. I love that theres no screaming kids or loud people.
While travelling on business I happened upon this place purely by chance. It was a good sign that on a Monday night there was a waiting line. I had the Steak Tips over rice with onions and peppers and a salad. For desert the homemade rum raisin ice cream. I have been back twice since the initial visit and will go there every time i'm in town. Great service, great food and highly recommended! Go there, you will love it!
Tgis place is fantastic, waitstaff and food is great! !!
If I could give 0 stars I would. We are so disappointed. We so enjoyed the old Spatt's and were regulars. We loved the feeling there, it was kind of like Cheers, everyone knew our name. It was wonderful, homey, friendly, inviting, although was terribly decorated... we had many parties, friends, etc meet us. We knew all the staff and I even got in trouble for getting my own popcorn. It was great. Well, we have since moved south and hadn't been in a couple years. We convinced some friends to take the trip there and described it as I did above, Plus the prime rib was to die for, just melt in your mouth! We were excited. We walked in and I was shocked, NO ONE was there, the tables were empty and already reset. What happened? This was a place you had to wait to get in to! We were seated behind the bar. They were cold, the waitress I knew from the days were were there all the time. She was uninterested, no interest in talking with us, even walked away several times as I was talking with her. It wasn't busy! That's one of the parts we loved about this place before. It made you feel welcome, that they really appreciated your business. I became more disappointed. I was embarrassed now that we had convinced our friends to come all this way! To make matters worse, we ordered the former Clydes cut, which is no longer... it was luke warm and dry. I had to soak it in the au jou sauce to get any moisture back and it didn't do it justice. She came to ask how things were, I just looked up at her. She says, "its the same cook, nothing is different" Well it was. I said it was okay. She walked away. It was awful. Even worse, my husband now has food poisoning, about 24 hours after. He kept saying something didn't taste right last night! Sad, we will NEVER go back. It has lost its charming people, you would think old customers (there were 3 old waitresses there - and Cindy, the former owner who always has a scowl on her face). Nothing, not a thanks for coming in, nice to see you... and we loved the food. So sad, deeply disappointed. Goodbye old Spatts, we had many awesome memories with you. Matty, we miss you!
I've been going to the Goldenrod since I was 5 years old (that was 1956) when my Dad took me there. I'm told I had a hotdog, french fries and a dish of chocolate icecream. Every time we were anywhere near Manchester, we'd stop for my Dad's favorite--Fried Belly Clams--not those weak flavorless clam strips, but the real deal. I introduced my future bride to the Goldenrod by a motorcycle trip from Portland, Maine one Saturday. We would treat our kids to a trip to the Goldenrod while they were growing up and both of them have brought their families there, all the way from Florida to introduce their kids.There are a lot of restaurants with more ambiance and fancier service, but none with more old-time value and heart. Great food and Ice cream. Do yourself a favor and try it out. I will be again this October when I make my annual Pilgrimage to the North Country.
