I saw a gorgeous photo of this restaurant in one of the tourist magazines, it had lots of tiny white lights, photos of the food looked incredible. It's pricey, but we knew that going in, we also knew it was located in a strip mall; it looked very large from the outside. It was very small when we went inside,... More

Went into Firefly on a Sunday, didn't realize I needed a reservation, (my fault) hostess (sara) was incredibly rude.... Telling me I needed a reservation, I looked around the "dining room" less than half empty... Told me I couldn't be sat anywhere for two hours and it would be a side dining room .... Including the bar.... (which was empty)..... More

We had a reservation for 14 persons and were celebrating a birthday. I had called about the birthday and supposedly it was noted and I was told we could order a dessert and Happy Birthday would be written on it. I said I would be ordering dessert. We were taken to a private dining area which was OK; our waiter... More

Went here for dinner and found everything just about perfect. The atmosphere is wonderful with a huge tree in the middle of the dining area with fireflies. The service was attentive without being overbearing. Our server was very knowledgeable about the restaurant and the menu. The food was as good as we have ever had regarding sea food. If you... More

Tucked away in a strip mall and two dark wooden doors is a gourmet delight. I have been many times and never disappointed. Gourmet dinners with a wonderful $14.95 early bird menu, sushi bar, bar, and lounge areas. The She-crab soup is to die for...

This is one of the few fine dining restaurants in the Panama City Beach area. We've visited Panama City annually over the past 8 years and have visited the Firefly every time just to get the She Crab Soup with dinner. If you come to early dinner (5-630pm), you can get dinner for about $15 each excluding drinks, appetizers, and... More

Casual Fine Dining at it"s Finest! Firefly specializes locally caught seafood, mouthwatering steaks seared on an 1800 degree broiler, wild game, fresh sushi and artisan pizzas. Winner of Florida Trend's Golden Spoon Award, OpenTable's 100 Most Romantic Restaurants in America, 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. 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!
