Selected this restaurant based on proximity and ratings by others who came here before us. We were seated actually ahead of our time but after that the remaining time at our table must say the service was lacking. The she crab soup was outstanding as well the crab laced Caesar Salad. We ordered three meals first the duck breast –... More

Everything is good. Great atmosphere. The crab cakes are good and pepper crushed stuffed filet melts in your mouth. She crab soup is perfect without the additional sherry they offer. Service was top notch. I love that my water glass was never empty. Well worth the extra money. Next time we will try the sushi.

My husband and I came here partly on recommendation, partly because my husband found it on his own. Let me start of with saying they had me with the lights in the main dining room! We didn't order special drinks just tea and water. The bread came...oh man the spreads and the red sauce...i could have made a meal. We... More

don't judge this book by its cover. Firefly is in a strip mall setting and is quite innocuous from the outside, but once you open the the door you are greeted by a well appointed warm engaging staff. This is three restaurants in one. They have a sushi restaurant with some nice rolls but a limited assortment of sushi...however they... More

I occasionally dine fine dining with work but personally don't like to spend the same amount for one dinner out for the two of us that we could go out 3x. That being said we were disappointed in the entrees. Server and server assistant were very attentive at first. Filling waters and taking plates. She Crab soup was fantastic, calamari... More

At the end of January we had the pleasure of going to the Firefly restaurant in Panama City Beach. It was my niece's birthday and her husband wanted to take her there for a second visit. The atmosphere is wonderful and the food and service was amazing. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

I really enjoy the service and the food. The atmosphere needs work. It is too loud with all the people talking. They need to put some sound deadening material on the ceiling to help cut down the noise.

Hands down one of the best meals I have ever had! I went to Firefly twice during my week long vacation. The stuffed filet is beyond amazing and the Creme Brulee was the best I have ever had! Very neat setting inside the main dining area as well! A must for anyone visiting PCB!

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!
