The best seafood in these parts hand down

My wife and I have tried every place that serves fresh seafood around our home on Lake Talquin within a two hour drive. Posey's only an hour away is our choice by far. All of their meals are very fresh and if you like fried shrimp theirs are to kill for. The batter is light and cooked perfectly... read more

If your coming for fine dining atmosphere-keep driving. If your wanting good seafood and plenty of food-this is your place! 1 of 2 places I would go for dine in in Panacea. And the girls busted their rears in getting to food to you quickly!

My husband and I stumbled across Posey's while in the area looking for a house. We fell in love! We now live here and consider Posey's one of our faves. The grouper fingers are so yummy and he loves the cheese grits. There is plenty of food, so come hungry.

Had lunch specials today and the chicken was just delicious! Have had our share of seafood for the moment so the chicken hit the spot. Staff was very friendly and the service was speedy. Highly recommend! Family owned and operated!

Posey's might look like a hole in the wall, but the locals know this is the place to get great seafood. Always fresh.

Yes, they have salads, but you should try the traditional seafood, fish, and other specials. I had fried chicken! Diet begone! This is a multigenerational run family place. We sat at the counter and were immediately engaged by staff and had conversations with helpful others interested in our trip and offering ideas of what to do in the area. (Today... More

I reviewed Posey's a couple of years ago and loved it. Went back 11/13/15 and it was as good or better. Ordered the fried grouper sandwich for lunch again and it was perfect. The grouper was very fresh and fried just right. The bun and toppings (lettuce, tomato and onion) were also very fresh. Their tartar sauce goes well with... More

This is a no frills restaurant that serves amazing seafood. The service was slow to get started and I was afraid it was going to be a bad experience but it wasn't once we got our orders in. Our party had the raw oysters, calamari, soft shell crab, blue crab claws and scallops. It was all delicious as were the... More

The Posey's have run some of the best restaurants in the area for years. John's place is the latest in line of homestyle, good eating spots. Big portions, good prices and some of the best seafood in the area. Service is friendly, the atmosphere screams Panacea/Forgotten Coast! The dip and crab claws are a must order.

Stopped by this dive with a few friends on our way to Jacksonville from Panama City. Amazing prime rib, I had the twice baked potato and a house salad as my sides they had no low fat ranch but the berry dressing was nice.
