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!

“Romantic Dinners or large parties!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2014

Great place for a celebration dinner or to unwind in a more upscale environment. Great wine list and bar area. Food presentation is wonderful. If there is a celebrity in town you will see them here. Seared tuna is my usual appi here. Lots of local seafood on the menu. Not many places prepare lamb and they do a wonderful job of it here. They have a wonderful fillet for you steak lovers.

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2014 via mobile

Was looking forward to a great meal given previous reviews. Great atmosphere, but the service left a lot to be desired. Not on par with level of fine dining that was advertised.

“Just ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

Excellent environment, overpriced for what you get. The entree doesn't really come with any sides. Perfect for dates, but if you are hungry and want seafood try something different.
