Awesome place to eat!!

Great place to eat!! It is right on the water! The staff is very nice and friendly. I highly recommend trying this place out. Don't judge the place by the looks of the outside. I promise you will not be disappointed!! You can even feed the fish and we saw dolphins come right up to the dock as... read more

If you're out on the boat & looking for a place to dock & fill your tum, Bayou Joe's is a fun option! If your feeling adventurous & hungry, try the Trash Burger- it's loaded with surprises like chili, cheese, mushrooms, whatever the chef feels like adding & usually includes an animal cracker or lollipop on top. The shrimp basket... More

Went here on vacation with my son and loved it! It sits right on water and the food is excellent. Our waiter, Kyle, came out and chatted with us and even told my son about feeding the fish our leftovers. Even I thought that was cool. We had lunch but are hoping to catch breakfast on our next vacation.

This is such a fun place. This restaurant is locate in a small bayou (Massalina Bayou). When I say "in", I mean "in". In the early to mid 1900's, it was the marina / fuel station. It's old and rickety, and has so much charm and personality. Boats can enter the bayou, through a working drawbridge, and dock alongside or... More

We went to Joe's as it was recommended to us by the couple we were with who lives in Panama City. Everything we ordered was delicious and the waitstaff was fun!

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.
