Firefly is our favorite restaurant atPCB. Every visit is better than the last. Tori, our server, was friendly and very efficient! The broiled lobster tails were perfect. The bone in ribeye was fantastic! We have already made reservations for another special night this week!

The reviews were great and the menu looked promising however was very let down. Coming from a culinary town this maybe the best in Panama City, but lacks some of the fundamentals of great food.

My husband I visited Saturday night upon recommendations and were sorely disappointed. My husband got the ny strip and it was covered with artichoke and tomatoes which would be fine on the plate except you could not taste the flavor of the steak only the artichoke. The chef here is also obviously afraid of salt. The potatoes were inedible and... More

We had a wonderful dinner at Firefly. Charlie had the She-crab soup and Grouper with Crab. Excellent. I ordered the Prime Rib Special with garlic mashed potatoes. Our meal was over the top great. Charlie ordered the house white wine, I had a margaritas rocks. Everything was just perfect. Can't think of a better place to have a birthday dinner,... More

Excellent service and wine selection. The she crab soup was delicious, just needed to be a bit warmer. The grouper was by far the best we had in the area, fresh, perfectly cooked with a delicious sauce. We would go back!

Thank Brpa
