Casual Fine Dining at it"s Finest! Firefly specializes locally caught seafood, mouthwatering steaks seared on an 1800 degree broiler, fresh sushi and artisan pizzas. Winner of Florida Trend's Golden Spoon Award, Urbanspoon's Top 250 High End Restaurant and Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence, quality of food and service is Firefly's mission. The atmosphere is more like New York City than Panama City. Firefly is the locals choice for a romantic night out, or a special occasion. Firefly has also played host to Country Music Stars, Heisman Trophy winners and the President of The United States. Chef was one of eight Chefs selected to cook for the athletes and dignitaries in the USA House at the 2012 London Olympics.

It's #1 in PCB for a reason!

So, I've heard a lot of hype and I read a hundred reviews and I'm here to say, Firefly by far earns it's place as the #1 restaurant in PCB! First, check out their menu on fireflypcb.com and decide if you want to go between 5:00 and 6:30 (which offers a "Sunset Special" menu) or after 6:30... read more

We have a condo here in PCB and come here often. This is one of our favorite restaurants. When we got there they had all the tables reserved and sat us at the sushi bar. Just not as good as usual. GREAT server. But for what we paid it just didn't seem as upscale and worth the price. This was... More

First time here this week and the reviews were right. Everything about our dinner could not have been better. All the food items we ordered tasted great and were served just like we ordered. The server was friendly and his recommendations were right on. We will be back again.

We come to Panama City Beach every year and dining is one of the things we look forward to. We dined at Firefly the first night we were there and were so impressed that we immediately booked a reservation for our last night in town. The food was the best we've had in town. From appetizers to desserts, everything we... More

Dont let the strip mall location fool you, this place is a gem. The food was some of the best we have had (and we eat out often). Must eats are the: crab cakes and she crab soup. The sushi was great. And between 5-6pm it was $5 martini hour, I think we had one of every flavor. The waitor... More

The place was jammed when we went there and there was a wait for all tables in the restaurant -- except high tops in the Sushi Bar room. So, that's where we went. One of our party ordered the fried calamari for all of us and it was absolutely delicious. And, from the other ratings that I saw, we all... More

This is our mandatory visit when in PCB. Upscale gourmet food with "early bird" value pricing. She Crab soup is addictive. Very professional servers, broad menu including Gulf Seafood.

Firefly is very close to our beach home in PCB and we have eaten there often over the last four years. Unfortunately, while we like the location and the atmosphere, the food quality has degraded over the last year. We have eaten almost everything on the menu, but have always enjoyed the choices on the Sunset Menu which features meat,... More

Can't complain about a thing for a change. Requested a table under the tree. Got it. Bread with three spreads. Liked the garlic best. She-crab soup (no crab roe endangered) was excellent. The bacon wrapped shrimp were tasty and large. The veal tenderloin, cooked medium rare, was as good as I have ever had. Not inexpensive, but we knew that... More
