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!

Had the fried fish sandwich which was great. Everything on the menu looked good and med. priced. It was good to go back after 15 years.

Decided to swing by here as it didn't look packed out the door and we were hungry. Had to wait a few minutes as a dinner rush was just working their way out. I had the fried captains platter, with grouper instead of whitefish. You can tell a lot of care went into making this dish, and everything was very... More

Terrible service. Our waitress had no idea when our food was ready. The appetizer took 20 minutes and came out cold. The food took over an our and it wasn't how I asked for it. Try and get a seat away from the "live" entertainment.

We bought some gulf shrimp from the fish market yesterday.. And decided to try the restaurant today. Tried alligator bites, the rest of my family liked it.. I was not a fan. She crab soup was very good.. Probably best I've tried. We all got the special.. Imperial red snapper. Fresh grilled red snapper topped with Parmesan cheese and she... More

Mr. H is a jewel. We were driving around trying to find a smaller joint to have dinner and happened to pull in here. The owner Mr. H greeted us and invited us in to his establishment. We had crab cakes very good and oysters all were very fresh and tasty. I was surprised by some of the other reviews... More

First off, the place is absolutely disgusting. The plates and flatware appeared to have not been washed since opening day. The building is small and filthy, I do not know how it passes health inspections. The main dining area is not big enough to support more than three families, yet they bring in a live band. The food is sub... More
