    I reserved a table in the main dining room weeks ahead of when we would be in Panama City. Once we arrived, the hostess told me that I was not allowed to sit in the main dining room because a woman had made reservations 3 months ahead. There were several open tables available. I will not be back because of this.

    Checked in and after being seated received phone calls to see if we were coming when we were already there at the restaurant seated. Our main server nice but not outstanding on going over the menu. Lobster tails arrived after we were finished eating. Atmosphere nice. Table we had next to kitchen so a little noisy. One girl was amazing and attentive on clearing our table. Very sweet black girl. Food was amazing though and overall we had an enjoyable dinner.

    Don’t eat here on your first night of vacation because this will ruin your expectations of other dining experiences, the price is pretty much the same but with 5 star food compared to normal tourist food. Definitely going back and loved the environment of feeling fancy but also laid back. 10/10 for sure!

    From the moment we were greeted by the wonderful folks at the front desk, to the final dessert, this was a wonderful experience. The food is delicious, service is excellent (Thank you Andrew!) and the ambience is delightful. We had the scallops, pepper seared Ahi and beef Center cut filet. All were memorable. And the she crab soup is not to be missed. We both believe it to be the best in the panhandle. The Key lime pie and bread pudding created a wonderful ending to the meal. Our out-of-town friends were thrilled. We have enjoyed several meals here at Firefly with lovely quiet dining in what we call the “tree room“. And a little more excitement in the “guitar room“. It doesn’t matter which room you choose, you will not be sorry to choose this place for fine dining, an event meal like a birthday or anniversary, and fun dining in the guitar room.

Every single bite was amazing! And don’t let me forget the bread - FABULOUS! Can’t wait to go back to PCB and visit Firefly!

    The Firefly dinner was one of the best meals we ate during our week at PCB. The food - presented elegantly - and service - courteous and well-paced - were fantastic. Based on our experiences with restaurants of a similar caliber, the menu was fairly priced. Perhaps the biggest disappointment was the music - louder than expected and canned! Had we been treated to the live music duo we heard two nights earlier in Seagrove, we would have considered the evening extraordinary.

    Outstanding meal. Our server, Bill, made good recommendations - attentive but not intrusive. The Parmesan bowl Caesar was a treat, although the salad itself was a little sub par (IMO). Calimari was great. Scallops with black rice was outstanding as was the filet mignon. All the sauces were unique and enhanced the main dishes. The spreads with the bread were a really nice touch. Our martinis were perfect as were the house wine selections (Chilean Cabernet and Pinot Grigio). We’re already planning our next visit.

    Everything was wonderful. Our server messed up a couple time but who can remember all the meats and cheeses that change all the time. Can’t blame the girl lol, she did so good tho and was so attentive. Everybody who served us sever with their left hand and took with their right as they should. Everybody was prompt. The only issue I could Karen about was the brussel sprouts being burned . Granted, frying brussel sprouts are one hard job. For what they were , they were atleast cooked all the way though. Will be coming back again for another try . Chef Zachary Reese , chef T’Ron Ceaser , Chef Eli Skipper, and Chef Christopher Infinger recommended me to the firefly and we will be back together soon.

    The crusted salmon was one of the best dishes I believe I have ever eaten in my life. Crab cakes and sushi were great. Entree portions are shareable for some. Great atmosphere. Our server was very knowledgeable about the ingredients of the various dishes. Support staff were very sweet and helpful.

    We (family & friends) have eaten at Firefly several times over the years, when we vacation in the area, and always enjoy Firefly. It is an experience and well worth it. This time we had a party of 8 (with a reservation thru OpenTable) which Firefly handled with no issues. We ordered a variety of appetizers (she crab soup, flash fried brussel sprouts, calamari, escargot, and kobe carpaccio, and the feature salad - burrata & heirloom tomato), then a variety of entrees (grilled grouper, sesame seared yellowfin tuna, macadamia crusted salmon, shrimp & grits, smoked bison short rib, and a roll tide sushi roll). All the food was fresh tasting and well prepared - as usual. Our server, Kaitlin, was cordial, professional, and engaging, and she and the other staff assisting took great care of our party. We look forward to our next dinner at Firefly; and give our thanks to the chefs and staff at Firefly!

    Where to start, octopus was wonderful as appetizer as was the brussel sprouts. We ordered dinner at 8:30 food cam out 9:25, almost an hour. My plate (elk) was ok. my wife's salmon was mushy it was defrosted and cooked, not flaky straight up mush!! Manager not once stopped by while we were waiting for the food. He not once came to touch the table. Waste of money. On the way out manager was on his phone texting on the long table by the bar. I guess with labor issues the service was awful but the food was not worth it.
