Firefly - Panama City Beach Ratings and Reviews

Excellent wait staff - food well prepared and tasty - good value - pleasing decor with comfortable seating - only negative was too noisy sitting in middle of large dining area. Would eat here again when back in Panama City Beach area.

We love Firefly and the waitress we had was awesome (Kayla). She recommended dishes that we loved and enjoyed. The only disappointment was that this was my husbands birthday. I guess I'm a bit old fashioned but I wrote it down as a special request, then mentioned it to the hostess, and mentioned it again to our waitress and nothing was done special for him. It may me sad as in the past they have always just brought a scoop of ice cream with a candle and we did get to sing Happy Birthday - his birthday is very special to me and this made me sad for him. So, please bring back doing something for a special occasion - just adds a personal element to our busy world we live in.

I frequent this restaurant due to outstanding service, incredible chef creations and overall ambiance. In six years of going about once per month I have always had a memorable and worthwhile experience. They are the best on the beach.

Party of three. We started off one with soup, two with Cesar salads with crab meat on top. All were very good. Two of us had the Red Snapper and it was okay but nothing special. I will say the portion was large so a very fair value. One of us got the filet and it was very good and cooked nicely to order. Firefly is as good if not better than any place I've tried in PC area, and the service was exceptional.

Great food! Great atmosphere, extensive wine list. Very romantic but great for a family as well. I had filet and lobster with salad wedge and it was delicious to the last bite, wished we'd eaten there earlier in our stay, I'd definetly worked in a second visit! Will go there again!

We tried Firefly for the first time Thanksgiving weekend and the food was amazing! Exceptional gluten-free options (not bread or fried food) including flourless chocolate torte. From the ambiance to the service to the food - everything was simply lovely! Definitely a "must dine" place when in PCB again!

We went there after my Mother's memorial service. It was a restaurant she always wanted to go to but thought it was too expensive. The sad part is it isn't! They have dinner items for $14.99 and the portions aren't too huge. Wish she had known and been able to enjoy the wonderful atmosphere, service and food

We enjoyed our dinner at Firefly. Even though the restaurant doesn't look like much on the outside, it is very nice inside with the huge tree with "firefly lights" in the dining room. The staff were very good, never letting my husbands coffee or my soft drink run dry. We didn't order wine or cocktails, but the wine list was very extensive, and the cocktails I saw at tables looked good. We had the "she crab soup", very good & rich. The house salad was big and fresh. Main courses were Filet Mignon, moist & tender, and presentation was very nice, with a good wine reduction sauce, cooked medium as requested. Also Pan seared scallops, good, but would have preferred more flavor or sauce, plus they weren't very hot. Desserts we had were the Classic Crème Brulee (set on fire at the table) and Bread Pudding with a pecan caramel sauce, both very rich. Our total bill came to $103, so this was a splurge for us, but wonderful.

We had our 15th wedding anniversary here, the food and service were top notch, only problem was that there was a couple of bridal shower parties there that got "a lil loud" but the manager came by and expressed his concern to us about the noise level and apologized for them being rude and comped us on our desserts. Other than that we had an excellent time at Firefly and definitely worth the price the food was amazing!

Food was AMAZING, however, I would recommend dressing business casual. We were from out of town and unaware of the ambiance. We called to see if there was a dress code, they said not bathing suits. With bathing suits said I guessed there was no need to dress up. I wore a T-shirt and was started at by patrons and staff. I would go back for the food though, absolutely amazing.

Been going there for years and to Canopies before they moved and renamed it. Never missed a visit each month. On my last 2 visits my steaks have been below par, the service slow and crying babies and screaming kids. Hostesses young and rather tacky smacking gum and using poor English. What happened to the classy place you use to have? Might as well have gone to Logan's. Will put this restaurant on my memories list. Much need for improvement!!!

I have visited this restaurant several times over the last few years and it never fails to please me with the quality of the food, the atmosphere, and the service. This is the best restaurant in the Panama City Beach area and is a big step up from the traditional fried sea food joints that are so prevalent here.

What a wonderful setting! Quiet, romantic with good food and great service! Perfect for just a night out or for any special occasion. They could have easily fit more tables in this wonderful space, but they kept the density down to preserve the quiet, romantic atmosphere. Put this place on your favorites list - it's the best place in town!
