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.

Firefly has also played host to Country Music Stars, Heisman Trophy winners and the President of The United States. Firefly's chef was one of eight Chefs selected to cook for the athletes and dignitaries in the USA House at the 2012 London Olympics.

Excellent Restaurant! When the POTUS visited Panama City Beach, this was the restaurant to which he was taken by the local politicians. Pricey, but the food, service, and atmosphere are all outstanding.

I have visited Firefly twice in the last two weeks. Each time the service was marvelous and the food even better. The soups are lovely and the crab cakes are delicious. Decor is very nice also. Reservations are good idea.

We knew that this restaurant is a bit pricey, but decided to treat ourselves. The atmosphere as you walk in is impressive yet not stuffy and overwhelming. Our waiter was knowledgable about the wine and the menu. He suggested several dishes and I wish we could have eaten more. The she-crab soup was so delicious. Our waiter said they don't... More

Even though we live in Panama City we had never been here because we had heard it was too expensive. One day I remarked that I wish I could go to that restaurant the President went to when he came to Panama City so my hubby surprised me with dinner here. We had another engagement that evening so we went... More

Limited menu, but very nice selections at a reasonable price make this usually high end restaurant a true bargain. Service and wonderful food are always first class. We keep going back.

The ambiance was out of this world. Very relaxing. The tree inside makes it feel cozy. Our server, Josh, knew his business. Knew what wines went with what food. Great recommendations. Did not hurry us or come by to often, but was attentive. GO just for the she-crab soup. It is so rich and creamy. You can taste every ingredient... More
