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!

Firefly is by far the best restaurant in the Panama City Beach Area. The food, service, and the atmosphere were outstanding. This is a four to five star restaurant in most urban market places. To fully enjoy this experience you should save your money and not worry about the cost. To top off the night (Friday/Saturday) please have an after dinner drink in the bar lounge and listen to the local excellent jazz band.

The ambiance as a whole was delightful. The huge oak tree is the focal point of the main dinning room with branches that extend as well as twinkles with lightning bugs right above you through your dinning experience. You are treated like royalty from the time you set foot in the door to the time you walk back out. We dinned there just last week and met the head chef, Chef Paul Stellato. He and his cooking staff did a fabulous job on quality, taste and presentation. The whole restaurant does a wonderful job working as a team to get the job done in the perfect amount of time. This is our favorite place to go whether we are out for romantic dinner, family dinner, special occasion or when we and our friends get together. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone living or passing through Panama City Beach, FL.

We dined at Firefly for the first time toinght due to the high ratings. It lived up to the ratings. We have eaten in many restaurants in PCB and this was by far the best experience...no other restaurants in the area compare. If you would like a nice dinner out, this is the place! From the sushi to dessert, it was all great! In addition, we had excellent service and as we were finishing our meal the owner came to see how our experience was. We will not come to PCB again without visiting Firefly.

We have to agree with all the previous reviews. Our meal at Firefly was outstanding. We especially enjoyed the chocolate creme brulee. The interior was quite a surprise after we saw the location in a strip mall. Beautiful interior, great service and the very best food in PCB.
