My entire family loves this place. I've been coming to PCB for over 40 years and this is the best place for a great meal. Portions are not skimpy, and the food is great. There are so many dishes we love that we eat here at least 4 times a week on vacation. We've even made a trip from KY... More

I give this place title for best fried oysters in Panama City. Cooked to what I like to call "medium/rare", flash fried to perfection, it doesn't get any better. Now with that said, onto the rest: Arrived and was greeted by a hostess who was arguably not even old enough to be working.. kind of off putting to be honest.... More

I live in pcb and go to j michaels a lot. Their hamburgers used to be one of my favorites with their onion bun but this night, their chef has decided to put spicy pepper in it or something. I did not want to go to a mexican resturant. I do not like spicy food. My hamburger was dry and... More

Great food but with a family I think the younger girls working could wear a little less revealing shorts, one girl was wiping off table beside us with her butt cheeks hanging out of her shorts, I'm giving it a 5 star rating based solely on the food

This place was recommended by our fishing guide. They offer "hook and cook". We caught mackerel so grilled and blackened were our only choices. Grilled was really good. Great price they cook 14oz of your catch served with 2 sides and corn fritters. My daughter got the fried cod basket and I neither of us liked it.
