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!

This restaurant has it all. Romantic ambiance, smooth background music, perfect lighting (although dark for reading menu), white linen tablecloths, candles. Staff here was excellent. Water glasses filled before I had to ask. Very knowledgeable, attentive, and friendly. The food was creative, delicious and presented perfectly. Early bird special between 5:00 and 6:30 makes this a very affordable place to dine. A truly great experience.

Ate here several times our last stay in PCB. Ate both in the restaurant and the bar. Food is excellent!! Service is the same. Go Tues. night for 5.00 martinis and sushi at the bar, or eat in the main dining room you can't go wrong. Had the Salmon and the Tun steak - both were exellent! the creme brulle was to die for!! A little pricey but well worth it!!

Firefly is a favorite place for special occasions or any night we want a special treat. The food is always good - the fish fresh, the steaks just right, and they have entrees hard to find elsewhere in the area such as lamb or boar shank. The new sushi bar is excellent and you can order from there in the main dining room. Décor is unique and attractive and it's quiet enough to be able to talk to the other people at the table. Keeps us going back!

This is the best place in Bay County for dinner. It is also the at the top of the price scale, but, you will come away thinking you were literally wined and dined. You get an outstanding value for the cost. Service is far and away the best in Bay County. The food, from start to finish is outstanding in quality and presentation.

Every time we dine here the food is FABULOUS!!! The She Crab soup is to die for!!! Caesar Salad with lump crab is my families favorite. Every entree we've ever ordered has been delicious as well as nicely presented. The servers are all very knowledgeable and courteous. It's our go to "special" place, which we find reasons for a "special" reason to dine as often as we can. Lovely atmosphere as well...again, it's simply "the BEST on the Beach."
