Recently stayed with friends in Panama City, and this is one of their regular dinner spots. Non-chain, seafood, burgers, on the water/bay, kids and adults were happy. Always a winner when that happens!

Hubby always goes for the trash burger. A little hard to find but all the locals know about it. Not too big but you do get to sit by the water and can even arrive by boat and tie up for lunch. On Massalina Bayou where you can watch one of the few drawbridges being raised and lowered so boats... More

My meal from Bayou Joes was fine. It was the rubber band mixed in my cocktail sauce that I could have done without. We showed it to the waitress and she said put it back in the sauce and took it back to the kitchen I suppose. She brought me back a fresh cup of sauce, but never offered to... More

Bayou Joe's is such a neat little patio restaurant located on an old dock on Massalina Bayou very near old downtown Panama City. It is well worth the time to find it and try. The atmosphere is like a place Bogart would have hung out around in one of his old movies. It is unique, very casual and right on... More

Went for lunch on a Saturday, it was very busy but was worth the wait. The food was hot and delicious, we waited quite a while for it but being that we weren't in a hurry and enjoying a cocktail overlooking the water we didn't mind. My husband had the shrimp and grits, classic but with a Bayou Joe's twist... More

Bayou Joe's has a perfect location! This place is super cute! The staff was very friendly. I would call ahead to make sure of hours because they were about to close when we came in but they kindly sat us and were happy to serve us! Food is delicious!

We have been there numerous times and expected limited tables for a party of 7, so we split 5 & 2. When a table beside table with 2 came open we moved to sit together. My wife apologized that we moved to sit together and our waitress stated something like " yeah, I have eyes I'm not blind." This same... More

I've been coming to this little place for over 10 years, usually by boat. It's changed hands a few times and I think it has changed hands again. Prices have gone up slightly, but the food is still pretty good. I had the grouper sandwich, and it was a little bland and a very small filet. My husband's was much... More

We were looking for local and relaxed casual local flavor and we found it. When you get there you'll wonder what are you doing there. It's a wonderful ambience for just what we were wanting. The atmosphere and views are magnificent and the food is even better. We will definitely visit again.
