The reviews were great and the menu looked promising however was very let down. Coming from a culinary town this maybe the best in Panama City, but lacks some of the fundamentals of great food. When you purchase prime steak you want to taste the meat not some over complicated topping. I understand some chefs do not like to use... More

My husband I visited Saturday night upon recommendations and were sorely disappointed. My husband got the ny strip and it was covered with artichoke and tomatoes which would be fine on the plate except you could not taste the flavor of the steak only the artichoke. The chef here is also obviously afraid of salt. The potatoes were inedible and... More

We had a wonderful dinner at Firefly. Charlie had the She-crab soup and Grouper with Crab. Excellent. I ordered the Prime Rib Special with garlic mashed potatoes. Our meal was over the top great. Charlie ordered the house white wine, I had a margaritas rocks. Everything was just perfect. Can't think of a better place to have a birthday dinner,... More

Excellent service and wine selection. The she crab soup was delicious, just needed to be a bit warmer. The grouper was by far the best we had in the area, fresh, perfectly cooked with a delicious sauce. We would go back!

First off let me start by saying if you are a fan of Uncle Bud's "All you can Eat" or Super-Large Buffet style eating, read no further. This is a wonderful little restaurant hidden in a strip mall in PCB.Typically beach food is fried, shucked or fried. This restaurant offered wonderfully prepared meals for a mere $14.95 (Sunset Special 5-6:30-... More

We went because of the ratings and were not disappointed. The watermelon/ arugula salad was even a hit with my nine year old, the smoked salmon nigiri was divine, the gulf grouper with haystack potato fries could not have been better. The desserts were perfect - lava cake and blood orange sorbet. PS Best Riesling I have had.

My wife and I came here for dinner on our first night in PCB. We had an attentive waiter who gave us a lot of information about the food. We had some bread with various dips/butters/sauces (roasted tomatoes with garlic, apricot butter, cream cheese with bacon) and we ordered some soups as well. We both ordered a special dish prepared... More
