Pier 77 is a local PCB seafood restaurant that has been in operation for over 35 years. Our seafood comes fresh from our sister business next door, Shrimp City, a gulf seafood market. Both establishments are ran by the same family, in fact, they are brother and sister. Sandra Arnold runs Pier 77 and Hal Dybdal operates Shrimp City, while their father, Mr. Harold Dybdal, acts as the family business consultant. Ask the locals and they will tell you Pier 77 is the hidden gem of Thomas Drive, that serves the best fried shrimp and she-crab soup in Panama City Beach! Our restaurant will be reopening on January 15th, 2015! We are excited to show you the incredible changes we have made during the off-season. Come out and help us celebrate our 35th year serving Bay County & our new and improved menu and decor!

Found this gem by good luck. Arrived in time for early bird specials. We all had the shrimp which was excellent. Wine was 2 for 1 and the fill was good. Only downside was margaritas without salt were too salty. Had the homemade pineapple cake. It was light and not too sweet.

We've visited PCB many times over the years but had never eaten here before. Now we know we have been missing out on some really good fresh seafood! We had some fried shrimp and the Fish Imperial and both were cooked perfectly. The atmosphere isn't anything fancy but more of a local comfortable place. The customer service is great too.... More

I placed a to go order so I cannot comment on the atmosphere of the restaurant or the wait staff. I ordered the crab cake dinner and it was delicious. It came with three crab cakes and two sides. I ordered the crab cakes fried, they were very flavorful and fresh. They make them there so they are very fresh.... More

Decor very simple, humble; people and... More

I went with my daughter and 3 yr old granddaughter. The she crab soup was awful, my daughter did not finish it. It took a very long time to get our food. When we did get it, it was not the wait. We will not go back.
