This is the place for shrimp and grits! They have a full breakfast menu and everything I've tried has been very good...but the shrimp and grits...WOW! They serve cold beer with breakfast for all who work nights and are looking for good food and a cool one on your way home. It's on a dock, looks like a bad joke... More

A little unusual in that you walk onto the pier to the back, and seat your self among the dozen or so tables there; there's no hostess stand. A few more tables around the corner. Again, fantastic is the only way I can describe the food! Awesome setting on the water. I'd come here vs. the overpriced restaurants in PCB... More

WOW, My in-laws introduced us to Bayou Joe's about 15 years ago. If you are at the beach in PCB, it's well worth the drive to get up early one morning and drive over to Bayou Joe's for breakfast. My favorite is the "Garbage Potatoes" which has a little of everything from the kitchen thrown in them. The kids love... More

This great spot is 2 blocks from the Bay County Courthouse. I like to meet clients here before and/or after court. The fish tacos are the best. The service can be a little slow when the crowd swells, but just relax and enjoy the amazing view and location.

Great sandwiches and great prices for a terrific view on the water. The seafood was very tasty and the drinks were cold. Service was quick and friendly. Just a quaint little place to try. We will be back.

I was a little leery walking in to this place, and it wasn't hugely clear which way to walk BUT I'm glad I kept going. The staff is super nice. The food is really good. The view is Incredible. You really feel like a local eating here. You should, totally, give it a chance. (They don't accept AMEX) I'll come... More

Went there with my wife and another couple. The view is great. Then, there's the food. I ordered the crab cakes - mostly breadcrumbs and very little crab meat. The cakes were over-cooked and dry. My wife and the other lady both ordered the fish tacos. Two very small pieces of white fish (smaller than fish sticks) with lettuce, with... More
