Our dining experience began with a professional, knowledge and excellent server, Sophia. Everything g we had was exceptional. A MUST is the She Crab soup, we would return just for that wonderful soup. However, my Red Snapper and my husband's pork shank were off the charts good! I also had the arugula salad which was perfectly balanced. We will be coming back!

One of our favorite restaurants. We travel to PCB a couple of times each year and look for an occasion to dine at Firefly. We have tried many things on the menu and have never been disappointed. We always finish with tiramisu! Great place for a group or for a romantic dinner.

A culinary surprise in a strip mall of various restaurants where service is attentive, but not cloying.
Topping the menu is the She Crab Soup, an almost agonizingly great starter, although some in our party claimed they could devour several bowls as an entrée. A 'must try.'
Seafood dishes were outstanding and, unexpectedly for Midwestern beef eaters, the filet was tender, prepared to perfection, and tied in our party for best filet with one served at The Dunvagen in St. Andrews, Scotland. Ummm!
An unforgettable dining experience. We will return---again and again.

From the outside Firefly might not look appealing; it's in a strip mall and has other restaurants close by. HOWEVER, once you go through the door, it's a HUGE transformation. Everything from the entrance to your exit is a great experience! The staff is well trained and efficient. The ambiance is beautiful. The food is well, UNBELIEVABLE! All the above at a price that is definitely NOT over-the-top. Firefly is a must for Panama City Beach!

Our meal was delicious, the menu imaginative, and the service was absolutely outstanding. Firefly's chef and crew create incredible and flavorful works of art that you get to eat! The ambiance is pleasant and welcoming, which is surprising given the location in a strip mall. Once inside, we were transported to an intimate, warm, and romantic space. Our server, Brooklyn, was knowledgeable (though new), perfectly attentive, and beautifully warm and authentic. We look forward to returning many times.

The food was excellent. Made a reservation online back at the beginning of January. We were first seated in a closed-off room in the corner. We asked to be seated in the main dining room and they did accommodate us and put us right next to the kitchen. The waiter did not take our drink order for at least 10 minutes. Sort of felt like we were the "bad children". Will not be eating there again.

We come to Panama City Beach every winter and we go to The Firefly for Valentines
dinner every year. The food is outstanding and uniquely prepared. This year we had the best meal ever (Grouper), perhaps the best I have ever had. Given the quality of the meal, the price is a true value.
I would recommend it to anyone looking to experience and outstanding meal at a fair price.

The atmosphere, food and service were all terrific! We had the she crab soup as an appetizer. It was outstanding. My wife had sushi for her entree. She raved about how good it was. I had the stuffed filet and it was perfect. Nick provided outstanding service and menu recommendations. The owner, Dave, met us at our table and made us feel welcome. What a great evening. Can't wait to come back!

The award-winning She-crab soup was worthy of the award! Wonderful bread and a delicious variety of butter, Roma sauce and bacon/pepper cream cheese was a nice little added touch. My ahi tuna on an artistic plate of 3 sauces was perfect. Go here!

Firefly always tops our restaurant list in Panama City Beach. The decor is unique -- just recently spent some time admiring the autographed guitars hanging in the Sushi Bar and have always enjoyed the full size tree adorned with twinkling lights which anchors the main dining room. But since this is a restaurant, the food should be the most important consideration and you will not be disappointed. Food is delicious (everyone raves about the she-crab soup) with beautiful presentation. Service is professional and friendly. Great dining experience

The 4 of us enjoyed a relaxing dinner together. The meal was well presented with excellent favour. The beef tenderloin on the sunset special was prepared exactly as requested. The 4 of us are from Canada and meet here each for a special inner. We have recommend the Firefly to many of our friends especially for special occasions as anniversaries and birthdays.

I have dined here several times since the restaurants inception, this time was not great. If it had been my maiden visit I would be in no rush to return. Aspirations and prices to suggest fine dining, food quality and service fell short. The beet salad and she crab soup that I had was adequate, my friend ordered crab cakes and butternut squash raviolis. Crab cakes were average, although not hot when served, raviolis were bland doughy pucks( returned and removed from the bill). Our server, Hailey (so?)was pleasant but absent for great stretches of time and then not observant as to what was needed when she reappeared.
Sazerac cocktail was well done

Our waiter Lance was over the top. His recommendations were spot on. Chef Derek came to our table and chatted with us. It was our first time there. We will be back. Made my birthday special with a custom decorated dessert.
