loved it! Was hesitant when I walked in, yes plastic tables and chairs but I didn't come to eat those, the seafood was delish!!! People are laid back friendly and courteous. Fast service too! So glad I stopped!

The outside isn't impressive, but the fresh seafood is. I had the stuffed, baked flounder. Out of this world. They give the entire flounder, both sides stuffed with crab meat dressing. Enough to feed two. The regular whole fried flounder is great also. Inside is not impressive, but service and friendliness is wonderful. Prices are great. I paid 19.95 for... More

WE have had several meals at Posey's. My husband has had the fried oysters which he said were very good. I had the bay scallops and they gave me plenty to eat along with the rest of the meal. It is one of the places that many of the townspeople eat at. One can have a separate table or dine... More

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...
