    We had a reservation for 8 people. Every single dish was amazing! And the service was outstanding! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting PCB. We ordered grilled grouper, shrimp and grits, scallops, she crab soup, ceaser salad, butter lettuce salad, kids shrimp and kids Mac n cheese, Van Halen roll and cream cheese stuffed jalapeños.

    The only reason I didn’t give this place all the stars is because the hostesses were rude and didn’t speak to me until I spoke to them. Hostesses should be warm and welcoming, instead both girls at the front just looked at me, kind of looking down their noses, and didn’t say anything. When I told them I was there for a reservation, one girl said the your table isn’t ready it will be a minute and then didn’t tell us what to do or where to sit while we waited. Food is amazing though, and the waitstaff was great.

    My wife and I had our wedding reception here 9 years ago it was amazing. We wanted to experience part of that day again will vacationing for our anniversary this year. Unfortunately it didn’t feel like the same restaurant at all(or it was exactly the same but in a bad way) everything just seemed really worn out and dingy and the food was underwhelming to say the least. My huge steak was so salty I could barely eat it. We made the mistake of asking a hostesses whom was chit chatting to take a picture on the same couch our favorite wedding picture we’re taking on. We almost got a usable photo. The only thing high end here anymore seems to be the prices. Our server was at least nice. A shame because this WAS such a nice place years ago.

    We arrived about five minutes before our 5:15 reservation to celebrate our 32nd wedding anniversary. Directed to sit until our table was ready. While waiting for our table, a waiter saw to it that we didn't get thirsty. After about three other couples were seated, I went to the hostess and asked, then we were seated. Our waitress, Stephany took great care of us. Our reservation was made through Wyndham and Stephany was made aware of our anniversary apparently. Food was delicious as well as the service. There was another waiter that never let my glass get empty. The price, it's more costly, but this was a special occasion.

    My family of 6 had reservations at 5pm. We were promptly greeted and seated. Our waitress went above and beyond the usual “hi my name is _______, I will be taking care of you tonight”. Our server “Gracious” was very helpful with the menu and knowledgeable of the entrees. We got 3 filets, 2 shrimp alfredos, and a chicken alfredo. Our steaks were seasoned and cooked perfectly. The alfredos were the best my wife and daughters have ever eaten…..and we eat out A-LOT! Our drinks never got below half full. I HIGHLY suggest this restaurant. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    First time visiting Firefly and we will definitely be back. The service was excellent and the food was amazing. We had the she crab soup, octopus and crab cakes for appetizers and they did not disappoint. The steaks were cooked perfectly and the lobster tails were on point. Split the crème brûlée and snickers cake.

    We were seated in the room with the oak tree, so that was nice except that we were close to the bathroom so it wasn’t romantic for our wedding anniversary. The She Crab soup was fantastic. Calamari was just ok. I had the scallops which I did not care for the tomato sauce. My husband enjoyed the grouper. I enjoyed the sangria and pineapple martini. We will try again, but be very selective on what we order. Service was ok, he did get overwhelmed with the larger table near us.

    The food was outstanding as was the service. We had the peppercorn stuffed steak with hash which was fantastic and probably one of the best steaks I’ve ever had. The servers were friendly and fun. The drinks were great. The only drawback for us, who were looking for a relaxing, romantic experience were some unfortunate music selections, which included some country music songs that belonged at a much different venue and they were somewhat loud and jarring.

    There’s not much to say. It’s a restaurant with an identity crisis that serves hard rice. On the positive side, they clear the table quickly and the tuna wontons are a sliver above average.

    Where shall I start?! One of the best meals and restaurant experiences I have had in a long time! The meal was amazing, from the bread to the appetizers to the entrees, all wrapped up in the incredible service we received from our server Gracia (pronounced Gray - C - Ah). I traditionally conclude a vacation with a high-end meal. Firefly was the perfect conclusion to our vacation weekend in Panama City!

    Very nice atmosphere. Clean and the wait staff was great. Jeffrey paced out our bread, appetizer, and main course perfectly. We did not feel rushed. There was some constantly refilling our water glass which was perfect because we walked across the street from our condo. Be mindful of any special occasions. We went for our anniversary on Father's day and families did bring Lil kiddos which were crying. I will return again!!
