Great Lil Place... Historic St. Andrew's.

Very good, good service however don't be in a rush there is always a line to get in the.door. They do need to expand to also serve outside. Or at least offer a drink and taste testing of.menu items.while you wait.

They serve many items as Cajun or Blackened. If you order non spicy food, they cook it where they have cooked all the spiced food and it is so hot you cannot eat it, including the crab legs. This is after being told the wait would be one hour (which we knew) but the wait ended up being 2:40. Yes... More

We have always loved Hunts and have always been willing to wait in order to eat there. However, what we just saw was very disappointing and we will purchase our $125 worth of food elsewhere from now on! We just watched a large group of people walk in off the street and hand the leader of the group handed the... More

A local icon, a must visit when in town - homespun & down to earth. A definitive Florida oyster bar!

Our first mistake was taking 8 people to eat there on our 1st visit. Clearly they don't cater to more that 6 customers at a time. We arrived at 3pm on a Saturday with no one waiting in line. While we waited for more that 75 minutes they continued to seat couples and parties of 4 before us. Several of... More

Eat at Hunts at least once a day when I am in the area. Best oysters, great seafood, all cooked to perfection. The whole fried flounder, OMG!!!!! Get there early but if you have to wait it is well worth it.

At first we had to wait a good 45 minutes for a table, but it was WELL WORTH THE WAIT!!! We started out with just a dozen baked oysters each, but they were soooo amazing, we kept on ordering them!!!!!!!!! We ended up ordering 6 dozen! we will be back soon!

This is a small hole in the wall restaurant back across the bridge from the beaches. When you drive up if didn't know where you were going you would have a hard time finding the name Hunt's on the building. Food is excellent, oysters are really good just be prepared to wait to get in, I've been five times and... More

My family lives in Panama City and we come down here 2-4 times a year. For the last year or so they have tried to get us to not go to hunts but it was our favorite. My husband and I went a couple of days a go, we will not go back. Before now we always felt like we... More

We waited over an hour while we watched a huge biker group who arrived after us seated before us then they left after eating before we were ever seated. I never received my food. We watched table after table be seated after us and their food delivered before ours. This place is horrific.
