Fantastic

My sister in law and I both got the fried shrimp po boy. Everyone else at the table was very envious of our plates. They really pile the shrimp on there. Make sure you try it with their hot sauce!

We heard about this place from some fellow campers and tried it out. We got there and waited for them to open (dinner only). It is somewhat different in how there business model operates. You are seated and given a menu and then you walk up to the counter and order your food. You also walk up there to pay... More

Doesn't look like much from outside but they make up for it with food. Best tuna steak burger I've ever eaten!

small, kitschy, not a place to kick back and relax. It's a very casual, high energy. You walk in to counter order beer, wine or whatever. Order food , get a number and pay CASH. Find a table and they bring food out. Will usually have someone come around to fill water or get you another drink. During season expect... More

Food was good. We got there around 5:30 on Saturday and didn't have to wait long. I had the fish tacos (grilled tuna fish) which were pretty good. They were served with cole slaw which was very good. I did feel a bit rushed to eat. The restaurant filled up quickly and people were standing around outside waiting to get... More

We had been to Mexico Beach several times but never eaten here. This was lunch time and we were headed to PC so we stopped. Be advised ... cash only! Generally not a problem but you could be surprised. Place your order, get your drink and find a table. They bring it to you. I had the scallops over pasta... More

First trip to Mexico Beach, & we were meeting some friends from Panama City for dinner. They suggested Killer Seafood, but they had not been there either. Our condo was right across the street, & our girls went over at 4:45pm. We were #6 in line. They passed out menus, & took our orders outside. As soon as the door... More

Little cozy place with limited seating & big crowds.... For a reason! Family owned friendly with a unique ordering system to accommodate the crowds. We had fried shrimp & fish with yummy sides & I could have eaten another plate it was so good! We were on a family vacation with 13 ppl staying in a house across the street... More
