Description: 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!

Amazing service, from the time you enter the door, until you leave. Our server, Adam, was a pro. Busboys also very caring. Food incredible. Crab soup out of this world. Loved the lit-up tree--Nice ambiance. Within walking distance of our hotel (Holiday Inn Resort). Went with my daughter (girl's weekend getaway)...next time will come back with my husband. He would love it!

This is a lovely restaurant with great food and fabulous service--from the wait staff to the busboys these warm, friendly people understand customers. She Crab Soup--don't miss this--rich, but so good; I had the crab cakes and thought they were the best ever; husband had tenderloin--so tender he could cut it with the fork. No room for dessert. We will return!

This is a lovely restaurant at the beach. It has lots of little twinkle lights inside.
The She Crab Soup that they are known for is delicious, with lots of crab meat, The crab cakes left a lot to be desired. They were more filing and less crab. The deserts were very good.

I can't remember my waiters name but me and my girlfriend dined there on Valentines day and he was an amazing waiter, very friendly and kind and made us feel very welcomed. The food was great my girlfriend loved the grouper. Overall our service was good. But just a forewarning if you're on a budget this won't be the place for you, they are pricey but well worth the price in my opinion. If you want fine dining this is the place for you!
