The service was attentive without being overbearing. Our server was very knowledgeable about the restaurant and the menu. The food was as good as we have ever had regarding sea food. If you... More

Tucked away in a strip mall and two dark wooden doors is a gourmet delight. I have been many times and never disappointed. Gourmet dinners with a wonderful $14.95 early bird menu, sushi bar, bar, and lounge areas. The She-crab soup is to die for...

This is one of the few fine dining restaurants in the Panama City Beach area. We've visited Panama City annually over the past 8 years and have visited the Firefly every time just to get the She Crab Soup with dinner. If you come to early dinner (5-630pm), you can get dinner for about $15 each excluding drinks, appetizers, and... More

We received a $75 gift certificate to attend this establishment and we were happy to oblige. The food was excellent! My husband had the She Crab Soup (for the first time) and loved it. I'm not much of a fish eater so I opted for the Beef Tenderloin Medallions and they were cooked to perfection. We also shared a Bread... More

My husband and went here for the 1st time for our Anniversary and we were very impressed. My husband had steak and I had lobster. They were prepared perfectly. The waiter was perfect and the manager came by to wish us a Happy Anniversary. It was a very romantic evening.

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!
