Description: 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!

First you notice the street sign --- needs to be repaired. The service from the staff was excellent and attentive. 2 for 1 beer was unexpected welcome. A dinner portion for grouper was a bit small and sides were uninspiring. Oh, skip ordering Boudin Balls as an appetizer, - terrible.

It looks very average on the outside....the indoor décor is plain to the point of depressing. It is nothing special to look at. Everything changed when our server immediately showed up with a smile and quick wit. Fresh oysters were very nice and fried shrimp was perfect. Wife had the she crab soup and loved it, It was a very... More

This was our first trip to Pier 77 and I was not disappointed. The food and service was very good but the place lacks atmosphere. We had the grilled fish and it was done perfectly. Prices are not great but about average for the beach.

Visited family and they took us to this place. WOW is all I can say. The oysters jalapeño were so good I made the chef come out so I could hug her. $1.99 margarita was suburb and the blackened grouper was awesome. It may not look like much from the outside, but everything about it is the food, and it's... More

Accessible location; for parking you may need to get creative if it is busy. The facilities aren't impressive, but the staff is friendly and competent. Our group was large but we moved tables around to accommodate. Try the Early Bird Special or the 2-for drinks at Happy Hour. Portions were smaller, but so are the prices; so the net value... More

This is me and my wife's favorite seafood restaurant in Panama City! Very relaxed atmosphere and the servers are extremely friendly. The specials before 6pm are a great deal and rarely is something not cooked exactly right. Parking is a bit tight but the owner is almost always outside watching the parking lot and making sure that vehicles have enough... More

Simple décor and atmosphere, but friendly greeting and prompt service along with one of the best ahi tuna steaks I've ever had. The margarita for $1.99 is an unbelievable deal, and my meal was on the happy hour (4-6pm) menu for $10.99. My husband had the fish and shrimp platter and said it was excellent. We will definitely be going... More

We visit here at least once each time we vacation in PCB. Everything we've eaten here has been next to perfect. The staff is always very friendly and attentive. They have great grilled, fried and blackened fish. Always fresh raw oysters and the desserts are to die for. Looking forward to eating here on our next trip to PCB.
