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.

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.

Honestly I can't tell you how the food is. The place is plain and simple DIRTY!!! Someone must have connections with the health department.

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.

When you think of rural Florida, Posey's comes to mind. We had a great meal for a good price. It is NOT fancy, but it is good. My friend had fried shrimp and I had grilled (fresh) grouper. We both enjoyed our meals. The waitress was attentive and pleasant.

Overpriced for lunch unless you get the special of the day. Great coleslaw. Small portions of fish. General appearance is a bit run down.

My husband and I both thought the menu prices were high for this type of dumpy restaurant. We ate Grouper Sandwiches, which were $12.95 each. They were very generous in size and very tasty. But, I kept smelling the bathroom deodorizer in the restaurant as we were waiting for our sandwich, which was very unappetizing! The place had a nice... More
