Oyster poboy and soft shell crab sandwich are recommended! Took it to go so not certain about the atmosphere.

The food is almost decent but it's the same junk you get everywhere around here. ALL the positive reviews are from family and friends of this place. Do not be fooled. It was a crab house 20 years ago and they never changed a thing about it. It looks exactly the same. How do I know? I was practically raised... More

When you see the locals eating there-it tells you something. Great food at a great price!!! Oysters were Great, Crab cakes the freshly made. I had mine blackened. Many other places were out of things-not this place. If you looking at atmosphere-don't go.

This restaurant is BASIC in decor, but the food is THE REASON! We had aligator bits, soft-shelled and crab cake (HUGE). All were fine. The service was prompt although we were early for dinner and almost the only patrons.

Though we had been to this area many times, this was our first visit to Posey's. They had been recommended to us by several people over the years and we decided to give them a try. We were not disappointed. The food was absolutely wonderful. We had the stuffed grouper, fried oysters and crabcakes which were all superb. The coleslaw... More

I really hate it when things change for the worse. We've been visiting Posey's for more than two decades, and we remember it at its prime, when Mr. Posey (we assume that's who it is) was there all the time, the wait staff were competent and friendly, the food was all great, and they had the best fried shrimp in...

Was at alligator pt on vacation and decided to try posey's great choice. We enjoyed it so much the first night we went back on Thursday night when they had all you can eat fried shrimp. It was delicious.

Good shrimp, good seafood. Loved the hushpuppies and baked grouper. Panacea is a very small town, with LOTS of restaurants. If there is a bad one, I have't food it yet!

We ate here while staying out at Alligator Point. Had oysters and steamed shrimp. Oysters were ok...found out later that the local bay was shut down so the oysters were from some place else,that was disappointing. The shrimp were good and well prepared. Good beer and good variety. Service was very nice.
