This gem hidden in a strip mall in Panama City Beach has delicious seafood and superb she crab soup. Service is attentive, and excellent. This quality was unexpected and much enjoyed. We dined here twice in five days.

From the moment we walked in I felt happy. Our table was not ready so we sat in the "Library " and ordered a round of reasonably priced cocktails. We were sat in a table/booth along the wall under the awning looking out at this Large tree covered in lights. Throughout our meal we observed many diners having photos taken... More

I have visited Firefly many times as a family, but this time I was here for a company dinner, after a LONG and Emotional day at work. We had reservations in one of the larger private rooms. I must say our service was spectacular. Our server, named Jamal, did an exceptional job. There was about 30 of us, and some... More

Went here at opening time and there was a line at the door. They didn't have another available reservation the whole night but the dining room was never more than 1/3rd full the whole 2.5 hours we were there. I think this is likely on purpose because food preparation takes so long. The food was great. The soup is really... More

My husband and I were reluctant to have dinner here because it looked very expensive and upscale. We were quickly proven wrong. The food was very reasonable and delicious. Chris was our server and he did an excellent job. Trish, the manager, came over to ask us how everything was. The calamari appetizer was one of the best I have... More

Service was a bit slow, but our server, Nick, was attentive and obviously cared about his job and was proud of his chef. He had apparently tasted everything on the menu and so had some good insight into each dish. Ambience is nice and relaxing. She Crab soup is just amazing. Pumpkin Cheesecake was awesome, too. I expected to pay... More

I visit PCB every May and Sept for a month each of the last 10 years. I also travel for work most of the year. Firefly is in my top 3 restaurants in the country. I am so happy to visit PCB and eat at Firefly at least 3 times a week during my month long trips. The early bird... More

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, 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. Firefly was one of eight restaurants selected to cook for the athletes and dignitaries in the USA House at the 2012 London Olympics. We want it to be much more than dinner, we want to treat you to a unique dining experience!
