Firefly - Panama City Beach Ratings and Reviews

Our first time here. I had the Texas boar better bring your appetite if you get this bad boy. It's delicious falling off the bone and the marinade was perfect for this. She had the stuffed filet and it too was perfect. She really like it
The food, especially the fish entrees (w ...
The food, especially the fish entrees (we had Grouper and Red Snapper), was outstanding. The fish was moist and flavorful with good compliments of additional flavors. The wine and cocktail lists were very good and sizable. The beer list was smaller and left something to be desired for the craft beer lover. All of the above felt a little pricey on the order of prices in Washington, DC, a city with much higher overall cost of living.
The service was totally acceptable and reasonably attentive. Our waiter lacked personality and character and did his job without going beyond the expected. The ambiance, having moved from major food metropolises like Philly, Boston, and DC, was decidedly impersonal. The restaurant is huge with many tables and is located in a big strip mall. I prefer a cozier atmosphere. This may have less to do with the restaurant than the location. Nonetheless, I would definitely go back for the food and perhaps I my relevant opinion of the ambiance will change as I try more restaurants in the area and re-calibrate my expectations.

Henry (Hank) was our server on my bday celebration on our first time in the Fire Fly and he was GREAT. When he speak doesnt sound like a broken long play...we can understand what he said. We have pretty much no complaint. BUT it was EXTREMELY HOT ...it got to the point that i was sweating DROPS...he said he was going to talk to somebody to see how they can make it better... then a woman (VERY NICE) came to check on me again and she offered anything and everything to help. Wich made us feel better but in general if the ac was working better. The whole experiencie would of be better... because honestly who wants to be eating in rush just to go outside because the restaurant is too hot...

I can't express how much we loved our experience at Firefly! Romantic atmosphere (our 15th anniversary), very attentive (if not overly warm) service and fantastic food! Crab cakes were excellent, stuffed filet and scallops were phenomenal. Highly recommended!!

The food was excellent. I ordered the pork shank and it was unbelievably tender and flavorful. My son ordered the pasta and was very impressed. We had wanted to try Firefly for years but never did. After our experience we will be back anytime we are in the area.

Ruined a $60 birthday cake! We walked in with a beautiful birthday cake, hostess even complimented it and when the waiter brought it out, all the icing was melting off of cake from being put in hot kitchen. Waiter basically said we brought it in like that which is very much a lie!!! Could tell by the look on his face he knew what happened. Will never ever ever return nor will the 14 guest with me either I don't believe.

We love Firefly! We live in Tennessee and always have at least one meal or sometimes two while we are in Panama City Beach. The pineapple Cosmo was delicious, and the chocolate lava cake was divine . Our server Lance was very attentive and knowledgeable. We will be back!

We picked a mob weekend for our first dining at Firefly. Despite the numbers of people on a wait list we were seated within 5 min of our reservation. The crab soup will bring a foodie back for more. The scallops were moist and fresh. Our waiter was excellent considering the mob. Did I mention the martin? Perfect!

The service, food, and ambiance were great! I would definitely recommend this restaurant for special occasions and/or business meetings if you are looking for a 5 star dining experience with an intimate yet vibrant feel.

The food at Firefly is great, but during our most recent visit the service was just terrible. Everything came out and the wait for the food was not the issue. All of the food brought to our table felt like a drive by drop off. The food was put in front of us and before the plate hit the table the staff was gone. There was little to no interaction. When we were sat at our table it was the worst table in the house, right next to the kitchen, we requested a different table and were told they weren't allowed and those were the rules. I cannot recommend Firefly if you are interested in a relaxing, elegant night out. The restaurant seemed tense and I think that is usually a reflection of how the restaurant is managed as a whole.

Food was amazing! Service was impeccable. It is pretty expensive- good for special occasions. However there is a very elaborate sushi menu that was very reasonable priced that I want to go back for lunch or light dinners.
