    Waited over an hour for our food. Ordered my steak medium but came out rare/medium rare. Busser was very attentive with keeping drinks filled and helping, server was ok but took a long time to get any alcohol to us. Mashed potato’s were good.

    Our server Delmar was wonderful! He was so attentive and knowledgeable about the menu and drinks! His suggestions were spot on! He came by quite often to check on us. Juan made sure our water glasses were filled and told us all about his country Colombia . I’ve been to Firefly many times and as always it didn’t disappoint.

    Very good food, delicious cocktails, and excellent service. If you’re celebrating a special occasion, I’d definitely consider this restaurant. We had the beef carpaccio and crab cake appetizers followed by the filet and surf and turf sushi rolls. The bread basket was great. You won’t be disappointed.

    Everything was superb. Drinks from the bar, appetizers, entrees, wine selections, desserts, and after dinner drinks were all high quality. We ordered from all areas of the menu and were not disappointed. I do wish the dress code were more strict but that’s just old school upbringing where fine dining goes with dressing up.

    Our waiter DeMarr was elite, he went above and beyond so we could enjoy our 29th wedding anniversary at Firefly. The sushi was premium, freshest sushi we have had in a long time. We will definitely return to enjoy the sushi and atmosphere. Highly recommend anytime your in PCB. Ask for DeMarr as your waiter, you won’t be disappointed.

    The food was great. We had Calamari for appetizer. I had the Swordfish; my fiancé had the Elk. The server was from South Africa, very nice but could not speak English very well. We had to repeat everything several times. This may have been why when I ordered a Mia Tia, and specifically explained how to make it. There was no Rum in it at all. I paid $12 for a glass of fruit juice. It was overpriced, but we knew that before we went. 2 people should not cost $120 before the tip, of an extra $20.

    I made reservations for me and my girlfriends 1 year anniversary We were seated right on time for our 8:15 reservation on a Saturday night, they were very busy! The food, the drinks, the ambiance, and hostesses were excellent. The food was without a doubt some of the best I’ve ever had! But what TRULY stood out as superlative was the service we received from our waiter Jeff and his trainee Bill From the very first impression throughout the rest of our dinner; Jeff and Bill gave exemplary service, had excellent personalities that made us feel welcome, were very helpful while we were ordering as two first time visitors to firefly, and overall took excellent care of us during our anniversary dinner. Jeff is an asset to firefly’s service and Bill is learning from the best! Can’t recommend firefly highly enough!

    Salmon with black rice and carrots was absolutely delicious. Greek salad and calamari were also delicious. My first time eating “sushi” - we ordered The Bubba and it was really good with the spicy mayo. And let’s not forget the bread with the garlic butter, blueberry lemon cream cheese and marinara spreads…..yum!

    The service, the restaurant, the ambiance, the food... Everything about this restaurant is incredible. Flash fried brussel sprouts, baba ganoush, calamari, and grilled octopus&olive oil poached shrimp from the appetizers and entrees; wild-caught salmon amandine, bone-in ribeye, and grilled gulf grouper were what we had, and all of them were out-of-this-world! We will definitely be back there whenever we come to Panama City Beach.

    Extensive wine and spirit list, excellent in-house cocktails. The Brussels sprouts were fantastic. The wedge, butter lettuce, and Cesar salads were very nice. The breadbasket came with three tasty spreads. The stuffed filet and the bone-in ribeye were perfectly cooked. The ribeye is HUGE. The dessert trio with a slice of cheesecake rounded out our amazing dinner. We were seated in a room away from the lighted tree. Try the Mannequin Chardonnay.
