Good Seafood

Ample seating, pleasant atmosphere and good service along with good food made for a nice experience. We had a variety of seafood dinners and everyone in our group was quite pleased. Oysters were especially good.

Greeted by friendly folks at the door. Just got better from there. Kristina was a fantastic waitress. Recommended the Orleans which was fantastic. Catfish and shrimp were great. Would recommend adding the oysters on the 1/2 shell. Will definitely go back when in the area.

My husband and I enjoyed a very good meal tonight. He had the fried shrimp and I had the special "Grouper Picatta". Our waitress, Sam, was so sweet. We will definitely be back.

Our server , Megan, was terrific. Everything was great tasting. I loved the homemade Ranch dressing ! We especially loved the twice baked potatoes. If they have Prime Rib, grab it quick! It goes fast. The skewered shrimp had great flavor. People around us were totally into cracking and devouring their crab, it made me wish I had some. There's... More

The oysters here were good though not exceptional. We had a dozen for appetizers. The sauteed alligator and the bayou platter were really good. Service was friendly and prompt. They even have a pond outside where you can see alligators.

Our food was excellent and hot when served. Our courteous waitress Kayla done and excellent job and my beer glass never ran empty. The wife loved her crab dip. I would make sure to visit here when you come to Panama City Beach. Will make you hate Red Lobster, if that is all you have at home. All the staff... More

One of the only places to serve steamed seafood. Try the crab feast, more than 2 could eat. Charbroil oysters were great. Our waitress Megan B. was very informative, attentive, & made our visit pleasurable. Will eat here each time we are in PCB.
