Best Restaurant downtown Panama City

Best food especially like the burger with shrimp I get it every time I go down. Staff is super friendly. View is great. Boats can pull right up to the docks. One of my favorites. Great place to make new friends and the price is right too.

Ate dinner at Bayou Joe's during my stay in PCB in Jan '16. The restaurant is located dockside and provides a great view of the marina and creates a nice ambiance to see the sunset with the sail boats in the foreground. It was busy when I arrived, so I had a slight wait. Traveling solo, I received a table... More

The best breakfast place in the world. This has been one of our favorite places to take friends for years. Always consistently good and the view is spectacular.

There are not many options in Panama City for breakfast aside from fast food restaurants, and waffle shop type of places. This place is in the downtown marina area, it offers waterside dining in dockside atmosphere overlooking a bayou with sailboats. Everything is freshly made. The crunchy French toast is a favorite. The Patty melt is excellent and my daughter... More

We came in October, the restaurant was busy, however service good and positively friendly. Food was good, but best of all for us was location. By the boats and right on the water. Something a little bit different! That's why we went back for a second time whilst on our holiday.

The reviews are great for Bayou Joe's, and there's a reason - the atmosphere, the food, the service is all awesome. I had the special burger with ghost pepper cheese and fried jalapeno coins, which was very good. Even the kids meals looked great. We'll be looking for this place the next time we're in Panama City!!

Whenever we return home to visit and stay in the cove we stop in for breakfast a couple times here. Great Bloody Mary and love their "garbage " plates. Service isn't necessarily rushed but it's a nice place to relax and enjoy your meal on the water overlooking all the boats.

This is Panama City's hidden gem. Tucked away on the bayou is Bayou Joe's. You sit over the bayou surrounded by sliding glass doors that allow the outdoors in. You can literally lean over from your chair and touch the water. The waitstaff has been there forever and know a lot of the history of the place. Ghosts/Alligators etc! The... More
