Description: You need to experience this place at least once in your lifetime. You pull up to an unassuming PINK building, Panama Hattie's, somewhere during your first beverage and the homemade bread and whipped sweet butter you realize, I'm on vacation. After dinner you jump on a moonlight water cruise just to feel the salty wind in your hair and the good vibes in your belly from dinner. You pass by the Rum Bar's tiki torches and bonfires and it them hits you, this place is part of Panama Hattie's as well! Wow. This place is like Mary Poppins's bag! Your not in Kansas anymore, you are at Panama Hattie's and the Rum Bar, and I don't think you want to leave anytime soon. Enjoy.

As of this past Monday, Panama Hattie's is no longer in business. A new waterfront complex with new restaurants, condos and businesses are going to be built on the site. Another Florida landmark restaurant gone.

Unfortunately after 27 years, Panama Hattie's closed this week to make way for a new boutique hotel, restaurants and shops. Ate there several years ago and really enjoyed it. Beautiful setting overlooking the Intracoastal.

The atmosphere is fun - picnic tables with your feet in the sand. But, the food is barely average. On a recent Saturday lunch time, the bar and food service were very slow - our guess was that the bartender was very new and could not handle multiple orders. They brought the appetizer at the same time as the entrees... More

It seems like Panama Hattie’s has one – five star reviews, and we bet the critical reviews are from first timers. Know that Panama Hattie’s is within minutes of several Five Star restaurants. Panama Hattie’s is a pub, with pub grub in a Florida Keys laid-back atmosphere. However, Panama Hattie’s is a family and kid friendly pub. We prefer to... More

This location is great, but that is the only thing this restaurant has going for it. The food was horrible! My snapper was dry and the fish was substandard. I couldn't eat half of it....a real chef would have trimmed the junk off the fish and thrown it in the garbage. It was served over a giant hunk of white... More

Made the mistake of eating here without checking trip advisor first. I should know better. Thought I would be safe with Mahi grilled but it was dry, over cooked and tough. The rest was no better. Yes the place smelled and not good. It amy have been good at one time but pass this up if care about decent food.

This was the most revolting place I've ever eaten. Where do I even begin?? First of all, the place smelled...so we sat outside. The sever took forever to come greet us and he never introduced himself. All I can say about the food is that it made me physically ill. I threw up immediately after I left, do NOT get... More

We were in the area for the day and kind of in a hurry to find somewhere for lunch. This place showed up on my smartphone and it looked kind of interesting from the outside upon arrival. It took forever to be seated and I believe we may have been the only party inside (there is an outdoor seating area).... More
