Went for husband's 70th birthday. All four of us agreed it was probably the best meal ever! Filet mignon was melt-in- your-mouth, generous portion, and cooked perfectly. Service was excellent. Seated right under the sparkling tree...... just a wonderful evening all around.

Even though it would be great to sit in the main room with the tree lit with fireflies, private room provided just what we needed for entertaining clients. Menu is great. Service was terrific with Jeff and food was excellent. Will be back!

Love the decor; where else is there a giant tree with twinkly lights right in the middle of the floor. We have eaten here several times and tried something different each time. The service is excellent, the atmosphere lovely and the food does not disappoint....More

This is a beautiful restaurant. The food is great, as is the service, and the atmosphere is the nicest in Panama City Beach. It is tucked away in a giant shopping center but that is the nature of the town. The only regret we had...More

The food and drinks were wonderful! The grouper special and the she crab soup were the highlights. The duck flatbread was good - soup was better! The cocktails were all great. The servers were attentive and very knowledgeable and never intrusive or annoying. The ambiance...More

We are in PCB for 1 week every year and so we have only 7 days to hit our favorite restaurants. Firefly is on that list and we have never been disappointed. Reservations are highly recommended.

Yes they do. You have to ask for it. $15. I would recommend upgrading two dollars for the she crab soup. Also get the calamari for appetizer at five dollars.
