We went for the sunset meal. Great value for families wanting a great meal. $14.95 for soup/salad and entree. She crab soup is amazing!! Best restaurant and service the entire trip. You can add appetizer/dessert for $4.95. The bread was fresh from the oven with 3 flavored spreads. Servings were more than generous and had leftovers for later. Highly recommend... More

We've been coming to the PCB area for years and tried Firefly after reading great reviews. The food was awesome - don't leave without getting the SheCrab Soup and the Creme Brûlée. Our waitress was very knowledgable about the food and wine menu. We will definitely be back next year!!

Had a wonderful dinner with six friends here. The outside of this place does not match the inside so don't let it deter you. Wonderful calm atmosphere. Great food and fabulous service. We will be annual regulars!

The atmosphere and the food were fabulous. Best She-Crab soup ever. I had the grouper it did not disappoint. My husband had the crab cakes and seared tuna appetizers, again delicious. He finished it off with a roll. We had a perfect meal and great service.

Ok I have been here twice and each time had the she-crab soup. It is a must have. I brought my family back and they liked it too (11 and 13 year old boys who think meat is a side and an entree). I am not really sure what a "she-crab" is but this stuff is good (I will google... More

Went with my family of 7 and the service was great. I was surprised to see they had a children's menu, being a nicer restaurant. The sushi was some of the best I ever had. I ordered the tempura fried lobster and my wife ordered the stuffed filet, both were excellent. Sorry we found it on our second to last... More

After a long day of travel my husband and I really wanted to relax and enjoy an amazing dining experience. The Firefly exceeded our expectations. Loved the dining room. Very tranquil with good acoustics. Larger tables and perfect climate control. Extensive wine list. Menu offers a variety of appetizers, entrees and deserts. The She Crab soup is to die for.... More

First time at this restaurant and as soon as I walk in, it was complete perfection! Very nice setting, great place for couples or family's. My wife had the crab cake starters and I had the soup sampler.. After we had these I said we are in for something great.. Who ever made these soups loves his or her job.... More
