Amazing staff and food. Price was extremely reasonable for fine dining. The perfect romantic date night.
Five star food and service. Gave it 4 stars because we had to wait 30 minutes even with a reservation and cocktails were average.
I did not care for the quality of the food nor feel it was worth the price. It was bland at times and over salted other times. The service was slow and unimpressive. There were several other issues from start to finish with interactions with staff. I would not recommend this place.
By far, one of my families favorite place to eat at in PCB. This was probably our worst experience we’ve ever had and it wasn’t bad. Food and drinks were great as always. The only issue we had was it took a very long time in the kitchen. Our server was great and checked on us often. But, it took about an hour to have our main courses brought to us. We have toddler twins and a 2.5 hour dinner really tested their patients.
Food excellent, service excellent, a real treat
Firefly was great atmosphere with a very friendly and attentive staff. My wife enjoyed the center cut filet mignon and said it was cooked perfectly and she is extremely picky when it comes to how her meat is cooked. The meat and cheese appetizer had a great selection which paired well together and did not disappoint. The GC Bouillabaisse was a delicious portion of seafood in a terrific broth. I also enjoyed the sushi roll that I ordered.
Food quality has gone way downhill. Bouillabaisse was obviously a bowl of over cooked leftovers, served cold. Good service but definitely not worth the prices for less than mediocre seafood.
After making a reservation two weeks in advance, we were seated at a table next to the kitchen. After observing 3 empty tables next to us, we asked the hostess if we could sit in one of the open tables (we were still standing). She went to the main station and came back and said that was not possible unless we wanted to wait for a cancellation. We were told all tables were pre-assigned to the waitstaff. A very short sighted policy that will probably come back to bite them!
A little disappointed in the food this time. Sushi was fabulous, steak wasn’t cooked to temp asked for (but we waited a while for our food so wasn’t sending back) scallops were lukewarm. Bread was fantastic and ceasar salad was good… but for a $200 bill disappointing.
This was our second time visiting Panama City and eating at Firefly. Our first visit was last August for our Anniversary and the Firefly was recommended. It was an awesome experience. So this trip celebrating my wife’s Birthday- we had huge expectations and one again Firefly exceeded them.
Another great birthday for my Wife, we go ever year and we are never disappointed.
First class restaurant in PCB. Has been for years. We chose this restaurant over competitors for our anniversary celebration.
A recommendation to the owner we would make is to feature a “wild catch of the day” item year-round or certainly Summer. PCB tourists come in for the seafood, and there are so many fabulous alternatives - snapper, trigger, sword, flounder, redfish, etc.
We’ll be back!
Favorite all time restaurant. Food and service was amazing. Sean B was our server and he was absolutely amazing. Very knowledgeable of menu, very friendly and made sure we were taking care of.
I can't tell you which was better, the food or service! Highly recommend the crab and tuna tower appetizer.
Wonderful place for first time guests! We bad Brussel sprouts to start which had amazing taste! Then the salads were super fresh with our entrees being exceptional! The center cut filet and the shrimp and grits!
The food was excellent as always and very fairly priced. The wine is overpriced, but balanced with the food pricing and quality this is the best restaurant within miles.
Food was great. Highly recommend the Blackened stuffed filet. Make a reservation for easy in easy out. Staff was excellent, never had to wait for anything.
We celebrated a friends’ 60th birthday, and the She-Crab soup did not disappoint. Several of us had Osso Bucco, which was excellent. Everything was perfect, except the bar seemed a little overwhelmed in that it took over 15 minutes to get our drinks. Several of the manager staff checked on us during the meal, which was awesome, but when it came time for dessert, once we ordered one Key Line Pie, that, too, took longer than necessary. The Happy Birthday greeting tasted better than it looked, but overall, the experience was excellent!
Great food loved everything about it! The food was amazing, the staff was great and never seemed to miss a beat. Drinks were refilled quick, food was out quick, and everyone was so nice!
Everything was great
Great food and service. Would recommend this place for anyone wanting to eat a fantastic dinner with a great atmosphere.
My husband and I really enjoyed this place. We ordered octopus for our appetizer (which was amazing) and for our meal I had the filet and he had the grouper. Both were delicious, but the filet won the prize!
Incredible date night experience for some time away from the kids. The food, service and ambience was amazing! Thanks Jessica!
The whole experience was great! The wait staff was really professional and very attentive. Prices are fair for the quality of the food and service. Even with no out door seating the main dining room felt like seating outside except with A/C. My wife and I would definitely recommend to others and will definitely return.
We will be back! Great atmosphere and the food was really good as well.
Vacationing. The food was delicious. Everything was perfectly prepared and very fast service. We had a reservation which gave us an extremely minimal wait for our table. Highly recommend!!!
Wonderful dinner out with the family while on vacation! Delicious food and good service. We waited about 10 before after being seated before our waitress spoke to us- but after that, service was great! Kids had sushi rolls and loved them. The kids fried grouper was amazing- fresh, moist, just the right amount of breading, and perfectly seasoned! Scallops dish was perfection. The ribeye wasn’t the greatest cut- very little fat - seemed more like a bone in sirloin. But the cook to med-rare was on point. Dessert amazing too- the table side creme brûlée was amazing! Overall- great experience!
Great service and fine food! A great outstanding atmosphere!
Food was good, SheCrab soup awesome. Wine was severely overpriced for a cheap wine at $40 a bottle. Sever spent too much time talking to other servers. Slow service all the way around. Desert was wonderful. Overpriced
Steak was good but all 3 apps and 3 other entrees had NO flavor. It looked great but tasted of nothing. We asked for an app to be boxed and they threw it away. When we asked they just apologized. Didn’t offer to get us another one. Server didn’t know the wine and the hostess staff were very immature. Shame because the place is very visually appealing.
Food was excellent and great service. Ambiance was very nice and noise level was way superior to most PCB restaurants.
I took my wife to Firefly for her birthday celebration. I made a reservation and was seated quickly, unfortunately, it took our food 51 minutes to come out My wife order the salmon and I order the steak with double seasoning medium-well. The salmon didn't have a lick of seasoning and hard around the edges, so we trade that in for some shrimp and grits. Well, my steak was well seasoned but dry as a bone, it was supposed to be medium well it was well done. I mentioned it to the server she stated hold on i will let my manager know, well guess what the manager never showed, and i was too hungry for a re-cook and wait another 51 minutes. The manager not showing was more disappointing than the steak being well done, and paying the full amount.
Loved the she crab soup and the grilled grouper! Some of the best we've ever had! Highly recommend grabbing a nice dinner at Firefly when you are in Panama City Beach
We had a fabulous meal at Firefly. The staff was attentive and efficient. We had a party of five. Sushi rolls were amazing. The steaks and seafood were perfect. The table split creme brûlée and key lime pie for dessert. Will definitely return and recommend to our friends and family
So amazing!! The peppered filet mignon was outstanding & they were so accommodating for members of my party with different dietary preferences. Great cocktails & amazing service!
