Firefly - Panama City Beach Ratings and Reviews
My wife and I heard good things about the Firefly. It was a nice place and the service was excellent. It was noisy and hard to hear the people you are with. The she crab soup was vary good but the crab cakes had too much breading. My duck was cooked to perfection but
The black eye pea stuff did not compliment it. All in all a good experience.
Vacationing and this restaurant made our occasion very, very special. From the server to the meal it was all wonderful. We got
To witnessed other servers helping out each other even if it was not their table. Each course was served so timely which gave you enough time to savor your meal and have conversations. Server Jameel was attentive but discreet. He gave us great history about the establishment. The ambiance and the food was so enjoyable and would definitely be our romantic spot when we visit PCB. Must try the She Crab Soup! It is every bit worth the rave! This was our first time in PCB and this restaurant and Resort that we stayed at made it a must come again spot.
Firefly met all my expectations and then some. In looking for somewhere nice for a friend's dinner we choose Firefly. The main deciding factor were dishes on the menu that sounded fantastic. The wine list is impressive, many great selections. I recommend going with someone that drinks wine as there were many great wine by the bottle options. I did select a phenomenal Cabernet Sauvignon that paired very nicely with the pasta dish I ordered. Highly recommend going here if you get a chance.
The appetiser of fried local seafood was decent and so were the cocktails (however, even local beers were only available in bottles and not on tap). The grouper main course was outstanding (and makes this places worth the visit), however the pork shank main course was too charred on the outside, making about a third of an inch of the outside meat too tough, dry and inedible (the meat on the inside was fine, but this recipe seems more suitable for lamb shank rather than pork shank). The creme brûlée was very good, the flourless chocolate cake decent, but the cheesecake was a bit too dense and the salt crystals in it was overpowering (a hint of salt is all that was needed). Ambiance was good and they cater to children. Overall a decent place, somewhat overpriced, but perhaps the best fine dining that Panama City has to offer.
I have never had such horrible sushi in my life! It was basically just rolled sticky rice. The lemonade was disgusting and the other drink I ordered didn't come out until we were basically ready to leave. I had such high hopes for this restaurant but it was by far the worst restaurant experience I've had in Panama City/Panama City Beach. I'm still in disbelief that my friend and I were served such horrible sushi!
It was absolutely amazing. I came to Panama City and stayed at Carillon Beach. Firefly was suggested as I was celebrating my 50th birthday. I and my friends had a wonderful time. The staff and our server were very friendly and accommondating. I loved the atmosphere and the setting met the occasion perfectly. I'll definitely visit again on my next trip.
This was our first visit but is definitely not our last!! We celebrated 11 years of marriage and everyone knew and congratulated us from the time we arrived. All of the food was excellent and was prepared and served within no time after ordering. The desert really impressed my wife and that is very hard to do!! The staff were amazing and very detailed oriented. This establishment is a must for anyone visiting the Panama City area!!
This was our first visit to Firefly. We were seated at a table in the main path for the servers. We simply moved to the side of the table away from the traffic and everything was fine. The She Crab soup was very good, as was the crab salad in a bowl/tuile made from a parmesan cheese. The lump blue crab meat was huge! I would like to have seen the giant crabs it came from. The Pepper-Crusted Stuffed Filet Mignon was excellent as well. We did feel slightly rushed but that was probably due to where we were seated and had nothing to do with the service. Our server, Jacob, gave us just enough attention without being over-bearing. I was hoping for a second glass of wine but that was never offered, probably because we finished our meals so quickly. It's a very nice place, well done and in good taste. It's a wonderful change from the same-old routine. Business casual to business seemed to be the best way to describe the dress.
Went to Firefly based on the online reviews. I found the reviews to positive and they where correct. Wonder atmosphere, outstanding service, and delicious food at a great price. We went during the early dinning special pricing and enjoyed a truly fine meal at a bargain price. I highly recommend this restaurant in Panama City Beach, you will not be disappointed.
I overheard someone talking about the restaurant and said it's the only place he and his family frequents in PCB. Now I know why. Our waiter was professional and attentive. We ordered off the early diner menu and it did not disappoint. I had the tenderloin and my friend had the roasted chicken. Both meals were excellent and nicely portioned. It was my birthday and I received my flaming white chocolate creme brûlée on the house. The atmosphere is very pleasant and inviting. I will definitely return on my next visit.
