Firefly - Panama City Beach
Best and friendliest service EVER!Most helpful server I have ever had! Great young lady.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversaryWe were in PCB with our extended family but looking for a place for just the two of us to celebrate our anniversary. Firefly offered us a diverse menu selection to experiment or fall back on old favorites. My husband had the bone-in Ribeye, which he enjoyed, and I had the stuffed Prime Rib, which I recommend highly. My husband tried a bite of mine and said by comparison that his would be "tough", but in no way was complaining about either entree.
We finished our meal with cheesecake for him and creme brulee for me and once again both were fantastic, but mine was the better of the two.
Wonderful time under the lit indoor tree, highly recommended!6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMloved itgreat food and service. Steak was amazing, fish was amazing, and they treated us well. prepare to bring a few extra dollars with you, not cheap, but I'd say worth it.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful, wonderful, wonderful!Best food in Panama City area, absolutely great! Food was flawless, service attentive without being overbearing, treated as though we were the only patrons there.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable from 11-81We were a group of 8 wich ranged from 11yrs old to 82. Everyone had a phenomenal experience. The 80-something's ordered the crab cakes, and said they were outstanding. The kids split a filet and loved it- minus the asparagus, which I relieved them of. My husband got the Cajun pasta and said it was enjoyably spicy, first time to have crawfish. My mom and I split the filet with blue cheese...Amazing! My dad had the halibut and loved it. Our waiter, Chris, was polite, professional and patient with our many questions and indecisiveness. Will definitely go back!
Side note- the only reason the ambience score was a little low was because it was so dimly lit, that seeing the menu was a challenge; especially for the elderly in our group.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthdayMy wife and I celebrated her birthday at Firefly last Thursday night. We are from Columbus, GA and are fortunate enough to have a home on Panama City Beach and Firefly is her favorite resturant. I would and do highly recommend Firefly. It is an excellent dining experience with all of the details covered. Thank you very much and we will be back!!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBlown AwayI do not want to give away everything, but if you want fine dinning but not dress up, then you would be a fool not to go. She crad soup is to die for. Texas free range Boar Shank melted in my mouth. What a great night.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentFood is all good, service is great, wait staff very friendly and always very a nice experience .
Enjoy going to Firefly for dinner.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat experienceWonderful night out... It was pricey but expected and well worth it5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMUnexpected gemTruly great experience with meals befitting of NYC or San Fransisco. Expensive for Pananma City, cheap compared to the big cities.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Dining ExperienceFried Lobster was excellent! My wife and I both had the "She Crab" soup for the first time. Extremely rich, neither of us cared for it. Others seem to really like it though. The grilled grouper was very good. The couple dining with us had steaks (fillet with blue cheese). Steaks were very good, however, recommend not going with the blue cheese (too strong).
For desert, the chocolate bombe was the favorite.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAMAZINGWent with a group of friends for a "fancy dinner" in panama city, and boy were we impressed! the food was perfect and desert was to die for. Our waiter was also extremely friendly and entertaining and even taught us how to fold the napkins in cool ways! perfect dinner for a perfect night!5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMUnassumingThis restaurant is in a shopping center that I normally wouldn't pull into to find such fine dining. The FOOD is AMAZING! I had the bacon wrapped shrimp as my entree and I gobbled up every bit. Then I decided on the bread pudding for dessert. It was unbelievable. Every bit of the experience was stellar. Make sure you stop by!5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Experience!This was our first dining experience at the Firefly and definitely not a dissapointment. The atmosphere was very relaxed and calming....we never felt "rushed" by our servers, who were very attentive. It's a perfect place for that Special Occasion dinner. The menu offers a lot of variety, and we enjoyed everything we ordered. We do recommend the "She Crab Soup"....a must to try! Looking forward to returning to Firefly and trying out more of the delicious items on the menu.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMay be the best meal of my life!I took my wife here for an anniversary dinner and the food, service, and atmosphere was perfect. Great ambience and fairly quiet for being so busy. The service was top notch from the time we walked in the door until we were finished dining. The crab cakes and she crab soup were amazing and I definitely recommend those as starters. I had the grilled grouper and my wife had the peppered filet and both was cooked to perfection with the perfect amount of seasoning and complimentary flavors. We finished it off with the bread pudding which was also top notch. This is a great restaurant to go to for a special occasion or just a nicer dinner than most of the beach restaurants.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFirefly is Beyond excellent!One of the best experiences I've enjoyed. Service was outstanding...none better anywhere. Food was delicious, drinks awesome. Dessert yummy.. Loved it...love love loved it! Was a big fan of Canopies....FireFly surpasses it!!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThis restaurant is great.This restaurant is great. The wife and I have been here numerous times and always enjoy our meal as they have a little something for every palate. This restaurant is a little on the pricey side but the food and service are well worth it. If you into to sushi try the Devils Advocate roll.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have eaten here severalWe have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. The food and service is great5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a GEM!This restaurant is a must if you visit Panama City Beach. Fabulous menu, including early dinner dining specials. The service was impeccable. Be sure to check out the "Martini" menu too and ask for the She-crab soup.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA real good timeOur night at Firefly was a blast! Excellent service, good food, and romantic atmosphere. We went here for our 4th wedding anniversary and we were treated so well. Even given a free decorated dessert! Definitely a must try if your in PCB. We recommend the early dining special...regular prices we thought were too spendy.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst VisitWe celebrated our 41st wedding anniversary at Firefly. It was our first visit, but it won't be our last. The food and service were both very good, and we were really glad that they offered Sunset Specials. Excellent food at a very reasonable price. We look forward to our next visit.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, Best Sushi ever!I wasn't expecting to find a restaurant of this caliber in Panama City. Having been in the restaurant business for 10 years, I was impressed with the professional service and the quality of the food. The ambiance was great as well.
They had recently opened their sushi bar so we decided to have a sushi roll as an appetizer.I have to say that hands down it was the best sushi I have ever had. My fiance and I have worked in fine dining sushi restaurants and have eaten sushi in many places and we were both amazed and the quality, freshness, and presentation.
We both enjoyed our entrees that evening but ended up going back the next day just to eat sushi and it was all amazing.
I highly recommend Firefly!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience Yummy FoodMy group of girlfriends and I ate here twice on our recent trip to Panama City Beach. The service was wonderful with a very friendly and helpful waitstaff. We weren't sure what to order and our waitress was very helpful and patient. The food was amazing. We all loved our meals from appetizer to dessert. The 3 crab roll was our favorite along with the hydroponic salad and the tropical bread pudding. I don't think you can go wrong eating at Firefly. The food was amazing!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved itWe chose Firefly to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The food was superior to anywhere else in town- I do wish the tables were more secluded- we shared bench style seating with a couple we didn't know; but overall, it was a great experience.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMA must stop!Every time we're in Panama City Beach we make Firefly a must. We love the food and the service is excellent.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMNever fails to impressI make it a point to visit Firefly every time I visit PCB. I have yet to be even slightly disappointed. I love the ambience; the service is impeccable, but still friendly. The food is always unbelievably good. On this occasion, I had the pepper crusted filet mignon and the she-crab soup (can't go to Firefly and not have the she-crab soup). I can honestly say it was probably the best steak I have ever eaten, and I have had a lot of steaks. Perfectly seasoned, perfect med-rare... flavorful and delicious, you wouldn't even need a knife to cut it. My mother had the lamb, and she said it was the best she'd ever had. We skipped dessert this time (too full!) but previously, I have had the creme brulee and the chocolate bombe and both were great.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingThe people were terrific. The host were very great to help the manger was very nice to help. The service was great. Ashley was great. The service of all were very on key with all there service. They were helpful and it was set up very professional. Everyone were on key to help out each other and get things set up quickly. That makes a great work force to know that customers are treated great and to make the atmosphere be calm and collected. It show great managing and well 5 star place overall to eat and enjoy the evening. The area was very romantic and everyone were happy to be there. It is a place I will recommend to all I know Thanks again for a perfect night. I love the food and the people. Thank you bottom of my heart.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfulThis place was a real find! The service top notch and the food unbeatable! Fresh and delicious! Service with a smile! Try the she crab soup but be warned it's very rich and it's a large portion! The place itself is clean and well laid out . We sat under the tree with all the twinkle lights and Fireflies! We will definitely return on our next trip!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMNice atmosphereFood good, service excellent there's assistants to server so you are attended to at right time water, appetizer, salad, soup all bought or taken away at just the right time. Very Nice!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunch not is good as dinnerI love going to the Firefly. This was the first time I had brunch there and it was ok. The only major problem I had this time was the service. It may be small for some but my drink was not refilled or tended to until I asked. The other was I had a question regarding my choice and I had to ask again for my answer. I never had a problem with service so maybe it was a one time thing.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlmost a 10Everything was great except I had to ask the waiter for bread. I believe a restaurant of this caliber should automatically bring bread to the table after drinks. On another not they did honor my request for the table I requested.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Mother's Day LunchOur family enjoyed a wonderful lunch on Mother's Day. My children (ages 12 & 3) discovered they LOVE she-crab soup! Our meals were beautifully prepared and presented. Our server, Jennifer, went out of her way to make sure we all enjoyed our experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day LunchGreat service, great food, ease of making a reservation on line.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMthe waiter recommended thethe waiter recommended the crab soup - which the restaurant was none for5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day Treat!Lovely atmosphere and very attentive service without being rushed. The entrees were delicious and well presented.
We went to this particular restaurant for Mother's Day because my sister-in-law and I wanted to feel pampered and we were not disappointed. I would definitely go again!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time at Firefly andFirst time at Firefly and will be back next time in PCB. Nice to have a dinning experience without kids screaming in background. The tree in center with all the lights was great. Like the fact that we could make reservations online. The Server was great and added to a great experienced.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday DinnerIt was my daughters 16th birthday dinner and the night was perfect thanks to the Firefly staff. Our reservation for 13 was at 7pm and our table was waiting on us. The service we were given throughout the night was fantastic and I would not have done enything different. The food was great and cooked as ordered, not over or under done. The only issue I have is the overview of the pricing online said an average meal with drink and gratuity would run $30 however I believe it should be closer to $40-$45/person.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMBetter even than I had hopedBetter even than I had hoped it would be very nice ambiance, romantic, the food was incredible I had the fillet mignon with a red wine demi glaze chefs potato and veggies added some grilled shrimp and Wow truely delicious my lovely girlfriend had the same we both loved it if you get the chance Go ! The service was top notch as well !5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMMake This a Date NightThis restaurant has always been to me a special occasion kind of restaurant. It's the one night in Florida when you don't want to wear flip flops and baggy beach wear. You want to dress up a bit to fit into the ambience of this restaurant. The food is fabulous from the first course to dessert. The crab cakes were amazing, the she crab soup was to die for, and the filet was melt in your mouth delicious. I took my creme brulee' back to our townhouse to have as a little bed picnic later that night.
This place is not inexpensive. But it's special, and we pay a bit more for the special things in life.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect for anniversary!We went to Firefly for our anniversary May 6th, and had a phenomenal experience. The service was fast, attentive, and very pleasant. My wife requires a gluten-free diet and the kitchen is more than able to accommodate. There's no gluten-free menu, but if you let them know, then the kitchen and wait staff will work around your requirements, substituting sides or modifying recipes, and the food was absolutely amazing! I had the boar shank, my wife had the veal chop. Both absolutely amazing. Also, the place maintains a romantic atmosphere, with a big tree in the middle of the restaurant mimicking an outdoor patio. It seemed a bit loud for a Monday night, but certainly not a deal breaker. Overall: a little pricey, but worth every penny.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFine dining without stuffiness.Atmosphere is perfect for either jackets and ties or blue jeans. The baked brie appetizer was delicious, not spectacular. The Caesar salad was delicious, though the crab gave it a slightly fishy taste, (great if you like anchovy in Caesar). The butter lettuce salad was spectacular. The real star was the entree. The stuffed filet is the most delicious steak I've ever eaten, and even medium-well, as tender as cake. Even the potato hash side was to-die-for. The desserts shine just as bright. The creme brulee is the finest I've ever had, and the bread pudding (mine was chocolate), was so decadently rich I couldn't finish it. Service was 5-star but very friendly and not stuffy. I HIGHLY recommend Firefly. It was fantastic!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMLUV FIREFLYSwonderful evenin the atmosphere wa the atmosphere was awesome ou and the service was ex and the service was exceptional love everything about the restaurant definitely will be back5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful place....!Wonderful food.

Highly recommend the scallops or stuffed filet mignon!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFrom the table setting toFrom the table setting to the presentation of the server packed leftovers, it was a treat!! She crab soup was divine!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for the early bird andWent for the early bird and it's definitely a good value. The She-crab soup was rich and flavorful, although light on crab meat. Had the Shrimp and Crab Newburg which was a delightful mix of creaminess and spiciness (from the Jalapeno corn bread). Really enjoyed that dish. The desert was an add-on for $5 but was definitely on the small side. Had both the Bread pudding and the White Chocolate Creme Brulee and I found the Bread pudding to be more unique.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Birthday DinnerVery good dinner...the crab cakes and the creme brulee were my favorite...will definately return. THANK YOU!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AM5 stars AGAIN!!!This was not our first visit to Firefly. It is always wonderful and this visit was no exception.
