3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The waiter was good and the atmosphere boppy. We were in a booth in the sushi bar that has the full menu. Calling it fine dining is a big stretch. Had miso soup and maki rolls. The miso soup had a LOT of vinegar, which gave it a spoiled taste. Wasn't clear to me why you would put vinegar in... More

Even though we were told it was, Firefly is NOT a restaurant for small children. The food and service were very good. Nice, quiet ambiance. It's certainly not the cheapest restaurant in Panama City Beach, but well worth the money.

Wow! We asked eveyone where to have a memorable, romantic dinner after our wedding and every single person said Firefly. They were definitely right! ! We had the most wonderful experience, the food was amazing and the staff, especially Christine, made our night so special. We both enjoyed the peppercorn stuffed filet over a potato/red pepper hash in a cream... More

Great atmosphere and enjoyed watching football while eating and drinking at the bar. Sat at the bar because table waiting was 30-40 minutes. Very responsive service and my wife and I were happily surprised at how fast our food was served. Would definitely go again.

We had a reservation and were seated in one of their private rooms, which was quiet, honestly prefer to be part of the atmosphere, unless with a large party or romantic dinner, which was not the case. Next time will defiantly request sushi area. We had rolls and each one was delicious, 4 between the two of us was much... More

This is a 5 star restaurant without being overly pretentious. A "business casual" atmosphere to it. Excellent food and service. Eat by the lit up tree if you can.

Recommended to my girlfriend by a client, we went for dinner with a reservation. Once inside the strip mall location was a distant memory. Sushi bar to the right of the bar-area entrance, dining room through the "library" to the left. Elegant but welcoming dining area dominated by the central tree and its lighted branches. We shared the crab en... 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!
