The Rack of Lamb there is the best on the beach, it is a upscale restaurant. Not the usual beach food, service is top notch.

We ate here on our last night in PCB. Seated in a small dining area as they had a large private party in the main dining area. Service was exquisite with Lauren as our waitress. Salmon and shrimp dishes were delicious and presentation was beautiful. The She Crab soup is absolutely wonderful for an appetizer. We shared it, also shared... More

Several locals recommended this restaurant in Panama City Beach so we decided to try their "early bird special". My wife that the "early bird" crab cake special and I had the signature drum entree (not on the special menu). The "early bird" menu (three course meal) is excellent. We expected cut down sizes, but experienced nothing of the sort. Her... More

Beautiful restaurant. Feels like your eating outside on the streets of Paris. Very romantic. We always eat early to enjoy the cheaper menu. The bread you get at the beginning is amazing. The dipping sauces are the best we've ever had. The She Crab soup is fantastic. We love coming here for a special occasion.

Went to visit for husband's birthday during our weekend getaway. She crab soup was so delicious. Our entree was nice, and our server did a great job. Decor was pretty, but seating was too close to each other to be called romantic. Unfortunately the table next to us was really loud. Seemed like not only us felt disturbed, but then,... More

On a golf trip after a day of weather in the 70's and golf scores in the 90's, we needed to find a place to rehash how tight the course was and who owed who how much. We also needed a good meal. We trusted TripAdvisor and went to the Firefly based on it's good standing. Navigation system to the... More

This establishmeny is extremely overpriced and the quality of the food is underwhelming. The service was ok and the staff was friendly enough, but the portions are small for the arm and leg you pay.

I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your experience at Firefly. I see this is your first review on Trip Advisor. Would you do me the courtesy to be a little more elaborate? When did you dine with us? What did you have to eat? What was your servers name, and did I or management stop by to check on you? If... More
