Having read the reviews I expected an exceptional meal. Wrong! Three of us went and for each of us there were good aspects to meal but also below average aspects. The starters were excellent and beautifully presented (crab bisque and tuna). The entrees were all below average (salmon, surf and turf and grouper). By desert time we opted for safety... More

Love the restaurant, love the tree in the middle of the dining area, love the food, and love the service. We always make it a point to eat at Firefly's restaurant when we visit in Panama City Beach. Absolutely the best bread pudding in the world!

The Firefly restaurant is located across the street from the Gulf of Mexico. Upon driving up, not very impressive: it is located in what appears to be a mid-70's strip mall. However, when opening their front door....Wow!! Beautiful foyer area situated directly in front of a full wall bar. Overall, the ambience of this restaurant is amazing. Very classy and... More

Nothing beats a night out at FireFly. Great food, excellent staff and affordable. The She Crab BIsque is the best, bar none.

Many restaurants are closed this month but Firefly is open and great as always. This time we tried the "early bird special" and were throughly happy. Martinis were great and the service excellent.

We 've been twice for the Early Bird Special. Such terrific value and top quality food. The atmosphere is very nice, the staff were very attentive and personable. We have found a new favourite restaurant in Panama City Beach. Go, you won't be disappointed.

...this one deserves your attention. They have some unusual market twists. For instance, they offer a soup sampler of their three soups, which is worth a try. Entrees were, as one would expect, oriented towards seafood, mainly grouper and snapper. Sauces, important to fish, were excellent. There is an early-bird special which runs until 6:30 most of the week.

There were four of us in town on a project. We were staying nearby, and thought we would try it with so many good recommendations. The appearance fooled us. The exterior in a shopping center is deceiving - we walked in and were pleasantly surprised (and a little under-dressed, ie... shorts and tee shirts). But they were very accommodating and... More

The title says it all. The soups were outstanding. The spicy and sweet shrimp appetizer fantastic. Both meals perfect. We come to Panama City Beach twice a year, so we'll be back in May. Can't wait.
