The She Crab soup was very good, as was the wine. I thought my ribeye steak could have used more salt and pepper. My wife's scallops were a little over seasoned. Other than that the food was good. By the way, my waitress said she had never heard of cooking a steak at 1800 degrees. I was a little disappointed at that for I had hoped to try it as advertised.

Everything was perfect. We dined in a private room for our bachlorette dinner. The food was amazing and I tried the fried whole okra appetizer for the first time and it was the best I've ever had!! Our waiter, Lance, provided us with the best possible care and he was wonderful! Thanks, Firefly, for such an awesome night!!!

This was a great dining experience. We were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. Food was excellent, service was even better. I would recommend you try this place.
Best On The Beach
The entire staff were attentive, from the hostesses, to the lounge and all table staff. Our server, Chris, was requested by-name, and once again, were well-attended! The beef tenderloin medallions and the salmon filet were perfection! We make Firefly a "Must Go" dining experience on every visit to Panama City Beach, Florida!
Must do when in Panama City Beach !
We always go to Firefly when in Panama City Beach. Service is superb, food is outstanding, and the She Crab soup is to die for. Reservations are recommended.
Our favorite restaurant in Panama City Beach, FL. They always have excellent food, great service & atmosphere. They never disappoint.
Definitely "Fine" in a tourist neighborhood!
Saturday nite before Mother's Day... thought our reservation would be a disaster. Was so surprised! Table was ready, our hostess already knew of my husband's allergies. Had a romantic table on the side in this beautifully lit room...away from the hubbub going on down on the "strip". The wine list is incredible... had a lovely brut Cava for $36! Our waitress went out of her way to check every possible dish for allergies, and every accommodation was made. She made superb recommendations according to our tastes. Everything was delicious... but the wild boar shank and grouper with cream sauce were over the top...and we are real foodies and hard to please. The dessert trio (apricot cheesecake, crème brulee, and flourless chocolate cake was a divine ending, and a perfect sharing for the two of us. What a find this place is, in the midst of a zillion chain restaurants and fried fish joints. And reserving on Open Table is the best!
Everything exceeded our expectations. I cannot wait to go back! The she-crab soup was the best. For the appetizer, I had the crab cakes which were delicious. The waiter recommended the sautéed grouper. I can't say enough about this delectable dish! I highly recommend it.
My first time here is a experience I will never forget. From the food to the service everything was phenomenal

Our server KC was awesome and the food was very good as always. We will continue to go here on every visit and recommend this restraunt to all our family and friends
We were travelling and looking for a relaxing high quality meal after a long day of driving. So we wanted something near our hotel. After checking reviews and menus on the web, we decided to go here and we were not disappointed. The prices are perhaps a little high, but quality is high (shrimps in bacon, she-crab soup, grouper, caesar salad with blue crab meat), the food is innovative, and the wine list is well chosen and diverse. Service is prompt and with a smile.
The fried green tomato appetizer was amazing. Service excellent-attentive. Loved my entree as well.

Our dinner was amazing! Firefly was outstanding.!
Our dinner was amazing! Firefly was outstanding! They were so accommodating to us when I called and mentioned we were running late due to traffic from Thunder Beach. The best meal I have ever had. Stuffed filet was fabulous. She crab soup was outstanding and the Tuna Tower was so fresh and we loved it! 5++++ Awesome!!
The food and service were beyond excellent. I missed the lighted tree the night we were there, but the restaurant management was trying to see what it was like without the lights the night we were there.
The food and service were excellent. We got the early bird special, which was reasonable. The regular prices were high but okay for a special occasion. Even though it's a very nice place, many people were dressed causally. We had the beef medallions and crab cakes, both were very good.

Awesome food. Everything was wonderful. Some of the best food I have had in a long time.
Vacation date night with hubby
Delicious! Great wine selection and unique menu. It's in an odd location for such a nice restaurant, but worth the search.
Service and food were excellent. Cocktails were mixed perfectly. Food presentation exceeded expectations. A little pricey, but was worth the evening.
Very enjoyable dinner here with friends.
Two friends and myself enjoyed the sunset specials this week. The service was perfect; the food was wonderful, and the ambiance perfect. I wish I had been there with my sweet hubby instead of two girlfriends! The manager checked on us at the end of the meal. My friends had the cajun pasta and there was enough to take home. i enjoyed the salmon. The bread served with three spreads before the entrees really hit the spot. Two of us had the spectacular she crab soup and we can't wait to have it again on our next trip to PCB!

Uniquely Delicious Cuisine
Given Firefly's setting in a strip mall, my husband I weren't sure what to expect. Part sushi bar and part steakhouse, it is a unique restaurant, indeed. The atmosphere inside is dark and intimate, yet spacious. The real surprise was the incredible menu selections. Our dishes (broiled lobster tails, stuffed peppercorn filet mignon) were creatively prepared and delicious. We could not stop oohing and aahing over the food! Service was fast and attentive. And don't miss the bread!
It wasn't fine dining it was more of a sports bar
Me and my husband made reservations before we came. We came to Florida to visit family for our 1year wedding anniversary. It was so loud and way to dark to even see inside the place around the "beautiful" tree. It was more of a sports bar then a "fine dining" restaurant. There was food still listed on the menus on-line that was no longer on the menu in the restaurant. The food tasted horrible and we barely even seen our waiter we was there for 2 hours and I watched 6 other people get they're full meal and ticket and left while I was still there gradually getting what we ordered. I cried at the restaurant due to me being so frustrated at how the place turned out. The plus side was we got the lava cake dessert and they wrote happy anniversary and that and the water was the best part.... I won't recommend this place at all. I asked the waiter If he was allowed to accept tips because some places you aren't allowed to accept them (where we are from) and he popped off that's what I work for.... Very rude. Thanks for the first time ever "fine dining" experience I won't be doing it again. Taco Bell tasted pretty good afterwards👌🏻😡

Just a totally wonderful dining experience ! Will return very soon.
We were on vacation for seven days in PCB and dined out six of those evenings. My wife and I agreed that Firefly was the best of the best of our dining experiences.
We love the food and atmosphere. You will not be disappointed.
