The place looked really different when we drove up to it. Really was not sure we wanted to stay. The decor was plastic tables and folding chairs. The staff was very very nice. The food was fantastic. I had the sampler platter for 30$ and I never spend that much for a meal. But everything was fresh caught locally and... More

I was in the mood for some Gulf Coast seafood and decided to drive down to Panacea and try Posey's. The restaurant interior reflects the exterior of the building. There is very little atmosphere, plastic tables and chairs, and overall the place could use some updates. Not the cleanest restaurant I have ever eaten at and the service left a... More

We are visiting family here, so we went to Posey's for dinner last night. We ordered the seafood platters, and they tasted wonderful. They were generous portions, all cooked to perfection. The service had a little to be desired, though. The kitchen was slow, and the wait staff didn't check on us very often. Seeing as how we were paying... More

The flounder is always the best ever! Last night's special of a whole flounder and 8 fried shrimp was only $14.95. We have eaten in Panacea for the last 3 days and will definitely return on this trip.

We stopped in for lunch. After hearing how quaint it was suppose to be. Not so, just a very small restaurant, on the run down side, folding chairs and paper towels. I ordered the lunch shrimp special..fried with coleslaw and cheese grits. The shrimp left puddles of grease on the plate. They were soggy with grease. The service was good.... More

OK, so Guy Fieri hasn't made it there yet, but that's just his loss. The Flounder...."Now That's Money" I have eaten at Posey's. on The Coastal Highway,enough that I could easily be a share holder (PS skeptics, I'm not), never yet been disappointed with the quality of the service or the food, If you are interested in fresh caught local...

We caught a bunch of king mackerel and took some of it Posey's with a large group. We asked the chef to take it and do whatever struck him or her and serve it family style along with Posey's you-catch-we-cook selection of two sides. Wow! Our excellent waitress (so sorry that I've forgotten her name...) returned with the mackerel prepared... More

Great food. If you love fish, order the flounder. It is always delicious! Shrimp was great too. They have something for everyone! Great menu with lots of options. A little pricey, most worth it. Wish there was one on St. George Island or in Apalachicola. YUM!

We ate here two nights in a row, and everything was delicious on both nights. My wife got the the fried shrimp dinner which came with two sides and hush puppies. The fried shrimp were awesome, lightly fried with a lot of flavor. The hush puppies were steaming hot and were a little sweet, probably the best I've ever had.... More
