If you want to spend a little more money on a delicious meal go to Firefly! Everything is good. And you must try the She crab soup.

While the food was good, I expected far more from the reviews. Food is average at a premium price. There are far more better places to eat in the area to spend your money here.

My fiancé and I adore this place. Literally the best service, best food, best company. It's so romantic and cute. We didn't know we were supposed too make reservations, so we had about a 20 minute wait ( which was no problem) but the manager himself apologized and gave us both complementary desserts. Our waiter knew every item on our... More

Visited for an Anniversary. Live in Panama City, but first time to Firefly. The roasted beet salad was basically dandelion greens with tomatoes, beets, and a light dressing. Honestly, nothing to rave about. I had the Gulf Grouper and my wife had the oven roasted salmon. She made the better choice. The salmon was cooked perfect but the sauce was... More

The food is probably the best in the area and is reasonably priced. Forget the other places, you know which ones I'm talking about... big chain restaurants with $$$ menus or a... More

Another wonderful meal at Firefly! Our server (Daniel) was attentive and helpful. We have eaten here every time we visit this area and honestly have never ordered anything we didn't enjoy. It is upscale dining but don't let that keep you away - you won't be disappointed. The service alone will impress you! We've tried a lot on the menu,... More

Coming from where we are with so many great restaurants to choose from, we were not 100% sure even though we have heard about many good things about this restaurant. Well, we were very happy with the experience - Great food, drinks, sushi, service, ambiance. We are foodies, so if we were not impressed, we would say so. I, in... More

Description
Casual Fine Dining at it"s Finest! Firefly specializes locally caught seafood, mouthwatering steaks seared on an 1800 degree broiler, wild game, fresh sushi and artisan pizzas. Winner of Florida Trend's Golden Spoon Award, OpenTable's 100 Most Romantic Restaurants in America, Urbanspoon's Top 250 High End Restaurant and Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence, quality of food and service is Firefly's mission. The atmosphere is more like New York City than Panama City. Firefly is the locals choice for a romantic night out, or a special occasion. Firefly has also played host to Country Music Stars, Heisman Trophy winners and the President of The United States. Firefly was one of eight restaurants selected to cook for the athletes and dignitaries in the USA House at the 2012 London Olympics. We want it to be much more than dinner, we want to treat you to a unique dining experience!
