    This is our second time to Firefly. The experience is always top notch! The drinks and food is amazing! The top it off, the staff is super polite and accommodating. We had a double birthday and we asked to be re-seated to a nicer location in the main dining room and very patiently and professionally granted our request. The hostess really came through for us. Lastly, one of the best bone in rib-eye steaks I’ve ever had !!!! A+ Food and service!

    We came here on the last night of vacation to celebrate our daughter’s college graduation. Everything was excellent! We had the Firefly bites and the Meat and Cheese board appetizers, hubby had the bone-in ribeye and my daughter and I both had the filet. EVERYTHING was cooked to perfection! We will most definitely be back!

    We reserved this after seeing online the atmosphere of the restaurant but then got seated in a back room. The server was excellent and so was the food but the back room was awful and too much money for the lack of experience the place advertised.

    We were celebrating our honeymoon & had a wonderful experience. The food was absolutely delicious, the she crab soup is so good oh my gosh! My husband got the ribeye & parmesan risotto. The ribeye is so huge & cooked perfectly. Risotto was so creamy and had good flavor. I got the pepper crusted stuffed filet, cooked at a perfect rare, such good flavor with the sides. Creme brûlée for desert can't get any better. Our server was great, very informative & was very kind. She made our experience even better. Will definitely come back next year on vacation!

    We went to Firefly while on family vacation from South Carolina for my wife’s birthday. The ambience was amazing! The food was amazing (even the kid’s items)! The servers were super-friendly and as helpful as they could be but the overall food service was the one area that prevented our experience from achieving its potential. We had reservations for 6:30pm. We placed our meal orders shortly afterwards- we had no appetizers with easy to prepare meals for the kids and sushi for the adults. Our food arrived at 7:45pm. That’s a bit too long for me and the rest of my family including 4 kids. Otherwise a great meal. Had our food arrived to our table in a more appropriate time frame, Firefly would have received a perfect rating, more typical of their reputation. Delicious!

    My family and I have dined here twice now during vacations to PCB from our home in Nashville, TN. We have eaten at the finest restaurants there, and also at some very fine restaurants in Chicago and New Orleans. We can’t think of any of these other dining experiences that stand out above what we have experienced at Firefly. That’s how great this restaurant is!

    Food was Excellent! We had requested the main dining room on our reservation but did not get seated there. We were seated in a little room behind the sushi area, nothing special at all! . Did not like it because we didn’t get the atmosphere that we always Love at Firefly. They were busy but no response as to why we were not seated where we requested to be. I have always requested the main dining and I have always been seated there. Our waiter was great, food was delicious as always but disappointed thus time.

    We were visiting from out of town for my boyfriend’s birthday. I made reservations for 7:45pm we didn’t even receive our appetizers until 5 minutes to 9pm. Mind you, I ordered a house salad for an appetizer and my boyfriend ordered a California Roll and soup (which he never received the soup) fast forward we didn’t get our actual Entree until almost 10pm. The waitress was the absolute worst! I believe her name was Alyssa but I’m not even sure of that being that she only came back to the table once to check on us and to bring my drink which she spilled all over the table as she continued to pour it and the glass was already full 🙄. We had to continuously stop other waiters and asked them to send our waitress to our table. When we asked her why the appetizers were talking so long she claimed the order wasn’t up there but she put a “rush” on it. Truth be told I don’t think she ever put the order in until after we asked about it. I also asked if I could substitute my side for asparagus and it came out with green beans. I couldn’t even ask her why I didn’t receive what I asked for because she never came back to the table until we were just over it and ready to go and all she did was offer dessert. The only reason she received a $5 tip from me is because my boyfriend asked me to leave it otherwise she would’ve received $0 because her service was the worst! The only good thing was the food and drinks! I had a lemon drop and the center cut filet mignon. But the customer service is being terrible!

    Great place! The atmosphere was wonderful. The main dining room has a big tree in it that is lighted and resembles fireflies. The other walls have signed guitars from famous musicians. The food was excellent and perfectly prepared. I had the pepper crusted fillet mignon and the caesar salad. The service was top notch as well. I highly recommend this place.

    This was a very nice atmosphere. The food was excellent. Our waitress was not very friendly. I would highly recommend this restaurant to a friend. Hopefully they don't get Stephanie as their waitress. She was rude to my wife and this was here birthday dinner. The lamb was the best I've ever had.

    This restaurant is very visually appealing but as far as the food; I had chicken alfredo that was okay. I was in a party of 4. My daughters ordered sushi & they both said it was ok nothing special. The other person in my party ordered the bolognese; now he loved his dish. My main complaint was the time it took to get our food. We arrived before 7 p.m. which was our reservation time & we were seated by 7:15. But we did not get our food until 8:30 p.m. These were pasta dishes nothing special. My daughters received their sushi order (I am aware these are prepared in different kitchens) well before our chicken alfredo & bolognese. The waiter was very apologetic about the whole issue but no other staff member even acknowledged the matter. I guess I could have been a "Karen" & made a big deal about it but that's not me. I just thought that after the waiter told us that he had the manager on the issue because the alfredo was ready way before the bolognese; that maybe the manager would come & apologize for the delay. So based on my experience I will not return here.
