Great place.

Great place. You can actually have a conversation there without the constant noise of loud music and the distraction of big screen TVs. Very romantic Louisiana type place. You are eating delicious seafood while sitting inches away from the water. Locals go there to get away from the crowds.

After an evening of trying 2 other restaurants we finally ended up here. And Im glad we found this place. They had some really good sweet tea. The food was good but the kids feeding the fish after dinner was the best. Our server handled our party of 12 perfectly!!! Only thing to keep in mind is the restaurant is... More

A quiet spot in Panama City that offers a lovely view while you eat. You can find sandwiches, soups, salads, seafood baskets, etc. on the menu.....all are good. This is a must place to try....you will enjoy it!

I come here every time I am in Panama City. The breakfast is amazing. This morning I had steak and eggs- the steak was cooked perfectly and very tender. Most steak houses are not even close to as good as this little restaurant. It has a very nice laid back atmosphere and a beautiful view of the water. Don't miss... More

Good service, scenery and food at Bayou Joe's. The open end restaurant is on a wharf at the marina near downtown Panama City. Makayla was our server and very attentive. We ordered fish and chips at $10.99. We watched all the sailboats docked around the marina and then fed the fish. Very cool. Will definitely go back.

This place is great!! Best place we ate while on vacation. If you want to get away from the big crowds this is the place.Their homemade chips are great but the drunk and ugly dessert is worth saving room for!!

Bayou Joe's is a local treasure. You can relax by the water and enjoy watching the birds and sea creatures. You can even feed the fish! Service with a smile and the food is good too!

Good food right on the water's edge. This rustic restaurant has delicious meals for every palate with above average prices and well worth the visit. The wait staff is polite and helpful. You can ever feed the fish from your table. The harbor view and beach atmosphere makes this a must see! You will come back again and again.
