UNIQUELY GOOD

nibs and I had a great breakfast here. He said it was the best omelet (Tom's) he'd had in a long time. It was huge so he brought about half home. I had the Reece's Nutty Crunch french toast which was marvelous. Moe's is a hidden gem off the beaten path but worth the visit and a scenic drive as... read more

It's definitely off the beaten path, but it's a fun search. Fun to watch the pelicans, and the occasional egrets and herons. You're right in the marina, so you get to enjoy the boats coming and going. It's kind of a beachy, boat shack, casual atmosphere. My favorite meal there is brunch. The food works! Great omelettes and home fries.... More

Hear the draw bridge beep as it draws so the sailboats can sail into the Bayou. Good learning experience with great food. Eagles sit on the Bayou poles while seagulls beg for a treat. See the fish swim beneath the boathouse restaurant floor. Drop one crumb of bread into the water and fish go crazy. Fun!

I just love this little place! I'd love to keep it a secret, but I won't be selfish! Hidden away in the bayou, right on the water, you'd never know from the outside what was waiting on the inside. This place has charm and atmosphere. You sit right on the water and if you have a boat, you can dock... More

Went with friends to what looks like a little fishing shack off of the beaten path located directly on Massalina Bayou. You can not judge a book by its cover, this is a great place with a wonderful view and great food. We had breakfast here this morning and I can tell you that the "Aidens Pancakes" , and I... More

The first thing that came to mind when I saw the neighborhood and the front of the restaurant, was "shack". Despite the run down look, I'd come back to eat here again. The back of the restaurant was open and the view of the marina was interesting. The service and the fried shrimp was very good. The cocktail sauce was... More

Unless you are a resident you likely won't stumble onto Bayou Joe's. It is located near Tarpon Dock in downtown Panama City. The view is beautiful with such a quiet atmosphere. You can feed the fish if it's warm enough for them to surface and listen for the whistle of the draw bridge before it opens. Raw and a little... More

If you're are looking for a different dinner place this is it- by land or by sea, food is good but the ambiance is the greatest, sit on the deck directly over the water- feed the fish- have a beer- the fried green beans are fantastic!! Enjoy.

This was a lunch visit for 3 of us & it was very enjoyable. The weather was good, warm & the fried green beans were great, with a very flavorful dipping sauce. The service was pretty good, although it does take a while. I had a grouper fish sandwich which was excellent. My son's philly cheese steak was quite good.he... More
