    Kind of an interesting vibe here; no windows, a waiting "library" with very deep seating, autographed guitars on the walls, TV's placed here and there playing sports, and surprisingly nice large granite tabletops. Is it a fancy restaurant? Is it an upscale sports restaurant? Is it a music themed restaurant? Not sure. Maybe all of the above, I guess?? Whatever it is, it's well worth the visit if you're looking for a higher end dining experience. The food is excellent and perfectly prepared, the place was very clean, the utensils and dinnerware almost looked brand new and had a nice weight to them, and the service was phenomenal. I think if they could just nail down a theme, they would check every box. Not that it's hurting their business though, because the place was packed and the only open reservation we could get was fairly late in the evening on a Sunday. Great food and incredible service always attract a strong crowd. The rest is just nice to have. Will definitely be back next time we're in PCB.

    Wait staff was outstanding. Food was delicious as always. Manager on duty was off putting and rude. Our reservation along with several others were for 5 pm. The weather was rainy, windy and cold. At 10 till 5 I called and spoke to one of the hostesses asking to let us into the lobby because of the weather. She said she would speak to her manager. At 5:01 he opened the door. I said to him I called asking to be let inside a few minutes early. His reply was a short and dismissive, “We open AT 5 “. He was rude! I understand stating you open at 5 but there is no reason to not let diners in to get out of the cold. Your lobby is very large and no one expected to be seated early. My wife and I have been in Firefly many times and this was an awful experience. Sincerely Chris Gidula

    The food is excellent, the wine by the glass is not special, except for the French rose I had . Our server was very nice We made our reservation many weeks out, but we were seated in the back room again , this has happened to us before. It’s second class seating that puts a shadow on what should be a special experience.

    I really wanted to love this restaurant but I think the food is good but not amazing like I’d expect for the price. Steak was over cooked a bit and not much flavor, mashed potatoes are comparable to cruise food, my kids chicken and fries were great, she crab soup was fantastic, but the steak and shrimp and grits where ehh.

    Service was not up to the standard you would expect from a fine dining restaurant My steak was really under seasoned (none) and the green beans had been boiled until they were pretty much mush Definitely would not recommend this restaurant to other people On the menu it said you get. 3.5% discount if you pay cash Really it is 3.5% additional fee if you use a credit card (who these days actually have cash - and why would you )
