Went for my husband’s birthday. Every thing was delicious, pineapple shrimp appetizer and the pepper crusted stuffed filet was to die for! Will definitely come back when we visit Panama City again.

Great food once they remembered our order and corrected an overcooked steak.
Had to eat our anniversary dinner at two different times. Poor service and no effort to correct the situation.

Great Dinner! My mom had her 1st trip to PCB and she really wanted Scallops. She absolutely loved the dish! Great service (Devin) and overall experience in the main dining room.

Everything was perfect. We made a mistake with reservations date, but we were quickly accommodated by the extremely friendly staff. Greeted as soon as we walked in with big smiles Food was delicious, the young lady that waited on us was excellent, the management could not have been more accommodating. Truly an unexpected pleasant experience. Bravo to entire staff

cocktails are great (martini), we had crab cakes which was amazing.
the Van Halen sushi roll is out of this world (soooo good)
I had bone-in ribeye which was sooo good, and huge, I took half of it home.
we had the triple chocolate bar for desert, it was very delicious (love the bottom crunch).
I highly highly recommend Firefly

I got the pan seared ahi tuna and the waitress says they prepare it “rare.” So I asked if the chef could prepare it medium-rare. The fish was over cooked and chewy at medium-rare and cold. It was served over Bok Choy which was also cold. So basically, I paid $34 for a tuna salad. I was very disappointed in my meal but was too hungry to send it back.

My husband on the other hand got the grouper. It was prepared perfectly and came hot. It was served on lobster risotto which had large pieces of lobster. I tasted his meal and it was delicious. So one meal out of two is not bad?? I guess my advice is to only order the grouper.

Good food but service was slow and not worth the wait. We had a reservation and arrived early. We were told it would be “just a few minutes.” After 15 minutes I went to check with hostess and she said we would be seated after our reservation time. Once seated it took 20minutes to get drinks and another 30 minutes for our food. And one of my friends sushi was not ready so she waited another 15 it.

We eat here once a year during vacation. We came in July, food was great, service was great.
Last night was a disappointing experience. Our server Hunter was great. The food was over cooked. I didn’t like the room we were seated in, it was dark and dreary. The manager corrected our bill which was great. We will still come back, best she crab soup in PCB!

Firefly gets better and better every time. I had the Grouper and it was excellent. Even better than the food was the service, Lance was outstanding. This is why we keep coming back!

I ordered a $99 bottle of Chardonnay that was barely cool,had to use my icewater and put it in the wine cooler to speed up the process,theBurrata was poorly put together,the escargot where excellent,so was the soup of the day,shrimp noodle,the Bouillabaisse was a total disaster ,smoked Salmon was edible,the second Bottle of wine was OK after I told the waitperson to make sure and prechill it,
All in all I spend over $427 for a mediocre experience,
It would have to be a cold Day in Hell if my shadow will ever darken the Door of this Pitola again,
