The kitchen is the heart of the Campbell house which is why we created an expedition kitchen so customers can see all of the love and hard work that goes into our dishes. firefly's vision is a sustainable one; the frame of the building is recycled steel, all of the barn wood is reclaimed as is much of our furniture, the pond irrigates our gardens which greatly reduce our carbon footprint along with all the trash that comes with packaging food, we compost, are constantly upgrading our energy efficiency and NEVER use chemical fertilizers or pesticides in our garden.

    We have been coming to the Firefly Grill to celebrate my birthday on our way from Houston to Ellison Bay, Wisconsin, for over 15 years. The food is always top rate, the setting charming, and the service wonderful. I had the sea bass and my husband had the 8oz filet. Everything was perfectly cooked and delicious. Looking forward to another visit on our return home.

    Our party of 3 was celebrating our daughter's birthday. The service was prompt and the server was friendly and attentive. We ordered brunch items, lobster risotto and cocktails. Everything was delicious. Creme Brule was excellent.

    Very good restaurant with a great menu and good food, but a little pricey in comparison to other restaurants in the area. Still, it is probably the best restaurant in Effingham and we will definitely return sometime.
