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!

The she crab soup was delicious! I could have made an entire meal out of it alone! My husband really enjoyed his steak. I had crab cakes which were very good. The ambiance was really nice. If you look closely into the tree there are little green "fireflies" that light up every now and then. We would totally recommend this place.

My wife went here for our 33rd. Anniversary . The food and service is the best we have ever had. Way above the 5 star rating I can give. Will definitely dine here again.

Definitely a great place to eat in Panama City Beach, FL, but it is a bit pricey. We liked it very much.

Five plus stars! First, our waiter, Gabby, was a a joy. He guided us through the extensive menu, and was professional but fun. The restaurant itself is beautifully decorated...lots of dark wood, and a large tree in the center of the dining room with multitudes of tiny white lights. The MOST important part, of course, was the food! And it didn't disappoint. The She Crab soup with a dollop of sherry and the Cream Brulee are PERFECT and not to be missed. We also ordered a grouper with corn, tomatoes, haystack potatoes and a delicious cream sauce that was excellent. AS if everything else wasn't enough, the restaurant provides warm bread with three flavored spreads. After a week of dining in recommended restaurants, we found nothing to compare to Firefly in Panama City!
