Alligator bites

Stopped here to try alligator while on vacation in Florida. The alligator bites were wonderful. We didn't have dinner, just the appetizer and drinks. Very limited on drinks, mostly beer and soda. But the alligator bites were a hit with the family.

This just a great little steam bar. The Steamed Blue crag fingers in Old Bay are delicious. The kids love their hush puppies.

It was good, fresh seafood. Children didn't love the cheese burgers, but parents enjoyed seafood. Food was worth the price. Very casual, but service was wonderful.

Was gonna eat lunch here but decided to just to beer and appy. Gator Bites were good enough, but our beer was warm. The staff wasn't friendly. We are out of towners and sat at the bar between locals. No one bothered to talk to us. I live in a little coastal town and that's not how we treat our... More

Stuffed grouper was outstanding as were the gator bites with special sauce. Portions were huge, a little pricey, but considering the quantity and quality, ok with it. Service was excellent as they were very busy. Place could use a freshen up, but love the old factor.

anytime we are near Panacea, a visit to Posey's is bound to occur. The seafood is excellently prepared, the service is friendly and the prices are good.

Food was OK. The restaurant/dive is a filthy dump. Overpriced. The owner needs to fix and clean this place up.

We were amazed at how steady the traffic was coming in to eat today. Perhaps it was because its July 4th weekend, but at 1:30 people were still arriving. Three of us ate the grouper sandwich and two had the shrimp sandwich. Homemade tartar, homemade coleslaw topped our sandwiches. Lunch was very good despite our lengthy wait. Our waitress was...

This definitely a place with local atmosphere and where the locals eat. The food is plentiful. It is very casual, not fancy, but I you will not go hungry after dining here.
