Firefly - Panama City Beach Ratings and Reviews
The restaurant itself is phenomenal. The atmosphere and the service were fantastic. It was my first time and I ordered the seared tuna. It was good, but I’ve had better elsewhere. Strictly a personal taste issue as it was prepared differently than I had tasted before. The rest of the food ordered was delicious.
My first time here. The waiting area is very nice, but did not like the sport's bar look the bar. Liked the tree and decorations of the dining area. The hard floor and tall ceiling made it noisy and allowed you to hear conversations all over the place. Nothing special for a birthday.
Service was excellent. My food was well prepared with great sides.
Took my 71 year old mother and family there for her birthday. Everyone loved the food, the ambiance and the service. My mom has high standards , especially on seafood and steaks. She had the steak and lobster which she praised repeatedly. The mixed drinks were exquisite and potent! Now our favorite fine dinning place in PCB. The lounge and bar is special; you’ll have to see for your self.
An absolute delight! Friendly and knowledgeable servers who keep on top of things to ensure a lovely experience for the diners (including making sure your water is always topped up, something I really appreciate). The food is delicious, and in particular, the she-crab soup is to die for. The early bird menu has an excellent variety of dishes at very reasonable prices. Definitely a must for anyone in the area.
Everything was exceptional....gave 5 star in every category .....except....ambiance.....gave 4 stars....as it was our 32 anniversary....would have been nice to sit under the tree and stars.....the hostess mentioned two other table locations and then the third seated us next to the wall.....very quietand peaceful....
The runners move much too hurriedly in a place that should be relaxed and enjoyable. Every time
one of the runners refilled our water, he spilled the water all over the floor because he was in such a hurry. All this anxious behavior rubbed off on me and those accompanying me. That behavior does not lead to a relaxing environment.
Then, we had a gift card fiasco. We used a gift card at the bar before dinner. Well, there was a “system error” which did not show our server the right amount on the gift card when we were paying for dinner. We signed the check, only to have a manager come back out and demand that we pay $50 more due to their “system error”. This amount should have been comped.
I expect at a restaurant this move for service to be top notch and guests to be accommodated in every way. This did not happen when we dined here.
This was my 3rd time dining at Fire Fly and the food has been excellent every time. It is a little pricey but worth it for those special occasions. The first two times I dined during the evening specials but third time was a special occasion so went all out. Even though we had a large group, service was spot on. I highly recommend you try this place.
We arrived at 5:00 and our bill was time stamped 7:37 . The service was very slow and the food for our main course was cold and the fish was overcooked and hard. At this juncture I cannot visualize our returning again despite having had good experience previous years.
