As soon as you enter our Panama City Beach restaurant, you will be wowed by the panoramic view of our newly designed 25,000-gallon tropical saltwater aquarium. Both our Café dining room and our more intimate Mermaid Room offer dazzling views of this tropical reef and its nonstop parade of exotic sea creatures. Our Gulf fresh seafood and choice steaks are amazing. If you are in the mood for Maine Lobster, you can choose your own from our live lobster tank. After dinner, order a drink or two and have some fun at the beach's only piano bar featuring Michael Rorah

Great place for Happy Hour, Early Bird Specials and Dinner.

We started at the bar for Happy Hour. Was told they have $5 Martinis and $4 House Wines. I chose a Pomegranate Martini which was very good and in a nice sized martini glass. Hubby had the house Merlot which he said was pretty good and for $4 he couldn't complain. We ended up staying for dinner... read more

A very friendly, efficient waitress, and seating for 8 in an alcove, our orders for drinks and food arrived in a very timely manner. Salads were generous and fresh. My roast beef was very good, but wife wife's salmon portion was small. Bread pudding was excellent.

My husband and I had a wonderful dinner on Jan. 27, 2016. The food was delicious, especially your prime rib dinner. We appreciated the Early Bird prices, too. However, our server, Sonya, was the icing on the cake! She was bubbly and engaging and energetic!! We'll be back soon.

Hi Sharon K! Thank you for your review on TripAdvisor! Our EarlyBird Menu is spot-on! Smaller, but adequate portions is the perfect description. I personally like the Prime Rib as one of my favorites, too. Glad you were able to enjoy the evening with us. Hope to see you again! More

We had the prime rib with a calamari appetizer. Both were great. The service was very good. The garlic mashed potatoes were great and the crème Brule was fantastic

I make sure to visit the Saltwater Grill every trip to Panama City Beach since my first visit in 2009. Next to Firefly, this is my favorite restaurant in PCB. I've never had a single negative experience here and the food and drinks are always superb!

When you walk in to see the giant saltwater fish tank, it is quite impressive. We were seated immediately. Since we arrived around 4:30, we decided on the early menu selections. My wife ordered the prime rib dinner and I chose the Saltwater Beef Wellington. The prime rib was excellent. The beef wellington, or I should say Saltwater's take on... More
