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!

Firefly is perfection. There is no other restaurant from Tennessee to Charleston to New Orleans we would rather spend a special occasion at than Firefly. We are avid fans of this place since our first visit. The she crab soup is always delicious and a must! Filet and Lobster are my favorite, but sometimes the special of the night gets... More

First things first - this place is not cheap and it has a dress code. If you are uncomfortable paying at least $ 40 for just the main course and/or want to wear a ball cap, tee shirt, cargo shorts, or flip flops, you probably should not go here. It's also not really a place for small children. I have... More

The decor on the inside was nice and unique. There's a tree in the middle of the main dining area with fake fireflies to add a nice touch. The service was spot on and the food was ok. Just ok. Nothing to write home about.

This upscale restaurant is still by far the best experience I have had in dining in Panama City Beach and many other larger cities. My daughter and I enjoyed a fabulous meal there for her birthday. I had dined there about three years ago, so I knew what to expect. However, she was in awe of the attentive wait staff,... More

My boyfriend and I had heard great things about this place and made reservations to go here for dinner on the last night of our vacation. They had offered a 9pm reservation on open table so we chose that time and pretty much based our plans that evening around it. As we were on the way to the restaurant we... More

We have been hearing rave reviews about how great this place is which prompted us to try it for our Anniversary. We went on OpenTable and got our reservation. Be sure to plan ahead on when you want to visit and get your reservation well in advance. The 7pm-9pm time slots go pretty quickly. If I would have known in... More

Firefly is our favorite restaurant atPCB. Every visit is better than the last. Tori, our server, was friendly and very efficient! The broiled lobster tails were perfect. The bone in ribeye was fantastic! We have already made reservations for another special night this week!

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!
