We were visiting PCB in August 2014 and decided to stop in because the parking lot is always packed. We always like to try a new restaurant when we visit each year and J.Michaels did not disappoint us! The hostess said we had good timing as the supper rush just cleared...we were seated quickly, the waitress was very attentive as... More

We had great service and food at our first visit to J. Michael's. They have great daily chalkboard specials and they had a nice children's cornor with TV's and toys to entertain the little ones while you wait for your food. Will eat here again when we return to Panama City Beach next year!!

We wanted to try a resturant without the "tourist entrappings". We were so happy we found J Michael's! Now this is not a quiet place to eat but it is family friendly with a kid desk play area. The food was great! The menu was exactly what we were looking for. I had the boiled shrimp and a bowl of... More

The oysters are always good. They have daily specials at lunch. A local favorite. Expect a wait in the evening during the summer.

Went for raw oysters. Waited 45 min them our waitress (Tiffany) comes to take our orders. Asked for raw oysters and tells us no raw but any other way is available? Really? Then screws up the order by not putting in my Husbands order and throws the Kitchen under the bus based on our ticket that we can see she... More

My dad had been gushing about this place so we tried it. The short and sweet of it...food was good. Got the fried platter. The fish was fine, nothing stood out. Shrimp was good/ok. Don't like oysters so I can't comment on those. Scallops were very small and mainly breeding. Fries were super good. My brother got grilled fish...it was... More

Don't be so busy looking for the "tourist spots" that you drive right past this gem. The food is so good that we went back for a repeat during our week's stay. The seafood gumbo is fantastic and the fish and shrimp baskets are delicious. Don't miss the cole slaw. It's peppery and not sweet at all -- some of... More

This is one of our favorite local places to eat in Panama City Beach.  They specialize in local fish and oysters. Leave room for the No Name Pie--pretty good stuff!
