Winter is the best time to go out to dinner in Panama City Beach. Starting today, I will list a few places with winter specials that will surely satisfy as well as save you on your eating-out budget.
I recently had a birthday and we went to Firefly to celebrate. At Firefly, you can spend a great deal on main menu items but if you are on a budget make sure and check out the early-bird menu and the Winter specials. We enjoyed the "Two Can Dine for $39" special very much. Thinking that the portions would be small at that price (we were wrong on that) we started by adding a crab cake appetizer. Next, the first course of the special came and we both chose the She-crab soup. After that, the entrees. Mine was seared ahi with mashed potatoes, asparagus and a small salad of mixed greens with the most amazing blue cheese vinaigrette dressing. His was Shrimp Primavera which, by the way, was enough for three meals! Finally, we each were served our choice of dessert. Mine was cheesecake with chocolate and caramel sauce and his was white chocolate bread pudding with blueberries.
When you add in a couple of drinks, tax and a generous tip, the meal was still under $100 at one of the top fine dining establishments in Panama City Beach. Firefly also offers an attractive early-bird menu and sushi happy hour that we will try next!
You will find this treasure at the Shoppes at Edgewater, located at 535 R. Jackson.
