    Diver scallops were NOT diver scallop. Very small pieces of tough rubbery balls. Crab cake app was delicious. Wedge salad was awesome too. Wife liked her grouper, but was way overpriced for grouper.

    530 reservation and was put in a back room by ourselves. Was odd as nobody else was put back there for 30-45 minutes. Had a Cesar salad which was excellent. Main was the elk which disappointed. Ordered med rare and came med well. Meat was flavorless. Broccolini was served cold and under seasoned. Risotto was over cooked and mushy. Added a lobster tail for $20 and was a 4 bite tail. Small Caribbean lobster that was again over cooked and rubbery. $200 meal that had the bread service and salad as the stars of the meal.

    Great place with awesome food and service. If you're into dressing up nice and looking good and want a great place for a swanky date night FireFly in Panama City Beach is the place. It's true first class operation 5 Star restaurant. The menu is outstanding and drinks are just amazing. It's worth the trip and price to have an amazing experience.

    Overall the experience at Firefly was pleasant. However, food service was extremely slow. We were seated at 5:30 and ordered around 6:00. Our entrees weren't served until 7:30. This was no fault of our server as she was extremely attentive and accommodating. I guess the kitchen was just overwhelmed which was surprising for a Tuesday evening. The music was extremely loud in the lounge area but the manager happily and promptly turned it down at our request. The quality of the meal was outstanding as was the ambience. Hopefully at our next visit we will be served more promptly.

    The ambiance was very nice. Service was slow and spotty...the server's quiet voice made him hard to hear and understand.The entrees were good, but each had a characteristic that kept it from being excellent (red sauce on the shrimp and grits and the lemon risotto).

    What a gem! Food ,service, ambiance all were wonderful. My husband is a chef and very hard to please and he loved the food. The rack of elk with risotto was over the top. We had 2 lobster tails added and they were cooked to perfection. The chef here knows what he is doing!!!

    I was BEYOND thrilled with our experience! We have been to Firefly multiple times over the years and each time I am blown away by the “best dish I have ever eaten.” We started with the She Crab soup which had a puff pastry and table side drizzle of sherry. As always, it’s a must have. We followed that up with the Devil’s Advocate sushi roll. It was very good but lacking crab in what is supposed to be a topping of spicy krab and seaweed salad. It was all seaweed which wasn’t pleasing to my husband, however, I’m more adventurous with sushi overall and enjoyed it. We were then brought a complimentary loaf of bread and trio of unique and delicious spreads to enjoy until our entrees came. My husband went with the ‘Center Cut Filet’ with a tasty béarnaise while I opted for the ‘Pepper Crusted Stuffed Filet Mignon.’ I have had some amazing food in my lifetime, but when I say that was the best dish I have ever had, I was not kidding in the least. PHENOMENAL. The chef is brilliant when it comes to the flavor combinations within that plate. As we were celebrating our anniversary, we opted to go with the crème brûlée which had a sweet message. It had a lovely creamy, yet light texture and amazing flavor. Hands down the best I’ve had as well. On top of the fantastic food and wonderful ambiance, the service was impeccable and we were taken great care of throughout our visit. Thank you again to everyone that made this a night to remember….until the next time Firefly blows me away with the next best dish I’ve ever had. My husband says I say that each time we visit. ;)

    The reservations were not anywhere near on time, even though I showed up 45 minutes early and the hostesses were down right rude. The food and waitress were great, but really unfortunate they have horrible girls working the door to “greet” people.
