    First trip for our friends and everything wa just great. Service impeccable, food quality was amazing. Selection was broad fish, Bison steaks. Wedge salad was incerdible. A bit on the pricy side and a bit load at times but all in all fantastic. We will be back.

    Very nice restaurant. The food and service were equally amazing. My only issue is they were playing country music throughout the restaurant. I like country music but this isn’t the place for it. And it’s Christmas time?

    Excellent meal with wonderful service. Seated immediately at our reservation time. Staff acknowledged that we were celebrating my wife's birthday. Bread was served with a selection of 3 butters. Our favorite was the jalapeno bacon. We had the she crab soup to begin and it was absolutely marvelous. Our entrees were the filet and grouper. Both dishes were excellent and we would certainly order again. We finished with the creme brulee which was outstanding. All in all a wonderful experience.

    I will tell everyone to come to Firefly. It was beautiful. And, it was the best food my new husband and I have ever had. We also greatly appreciated that they paid attention and knew we were there to celebrate 🥂 our marriage only days ago. Clean, fantastic food, wonderful and friendly staff. We will be returning 100%

    Overall the food was good but I was honestly disappointed in the restaurant. I am visually impaired and asked for specific seating for lighting in trying to read menus and they stuck us in a dark corner, I made my reservation almost 2 weeks in advance to try to be put in an area with specific lighting. I do this so I do not have to have someone read me a menu or use my flashlight and disturb other guests of the restaurant. I tried mentioning it to our hostess and it was passed over. I will not be back

    The Firefly is our go-to place for special occasions, this time a 79th birthday. Bill was our newly-appointed waiter who we've had for years bussing under Lance and did an outstanding job taking care of us. Lance dropped by to say "hi" and swap lies and insults and then gave us two martinis on the house. The rib-eye steak was HUGE - enough to feed five and very flavourful. My wife always has the she-crab soup which she says "is to die for," and the Caesar salad in a cheese bowl. All inall, another great night at the Firefly -highly recommended.

    The she crab soup always starts our meal. It sets the bar really high. My wife ordered the scallops and one or more were bad and had to be returned. Even the server agreed that it didn't smell right (and tasted super fishy). The stuffed filled mignon that I ordered was superb. The scallops were replaced by their version of shrimp and grits. For dessert we ordered the chocolate cake and it was not even mediocre. It tasted cheap and store-bought. Although Publix sells cakes that taste better. I suspect it's because Firefly feels that they need a chocolate dessert on the menu. Next, the music was a conglomeration of pop music that does fit the targeted ambiance. Jazz would probably be a better fit. Lastly, and this isn't necessarily Firefly's fault, but in a relatively elegant atmosphere, people in ball caps and shorts really harms the ambiance that you're going for. Come on PCB, class it up.

    My first time and it was a beautiful restaurant, but the food just did not really WOW me. The server was excellent and the overall experience wonderful but nothing really to drive me back there to eat. I had calamari which was good. I ordered suishi and that was good but I have had better. The bread was served and had three spreads which none of them were exciting, neither was the bread which came like sliced bread. The Bolognese sauce over pasta was bland and flavorless. Overall experience was good. I was just looking for something exceptional at that price point and it just did not happen.

    Great meal and our waitress, Kaitlyn, was very nice and explained everything to us. Service was a little slow overall, but my guess is they weren’t prepared for such a strong crowd during off season. It was very loud with us seated in the main dining area. Recommend you ask for one of the tables in a side area. All in all this place never disappoints and we come here at least once during our stays. The crab cake appetizer was phenomenal and could easily serve 4, although my wife and I polished them off by ourselves. Highly recommended if you enjoy a quality meal.
