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!

One of our regular spots when we come to the beach. Great food, the shrimp was awesome, neat, rustic spot. If you are in PCB and need dinner, check this out.

While it may look like a dump from the outside, the food was delicious. After a short wait on the porch where we were served a beer, we were seated and what a surprise! The food was DELICIOUS!

Staff not very friendly. We had a 2 year old with us and had to ask for a booster seat for him, and also a child's menu. Unless you want your child to drink soda, tea, or water - bring your own milk. They do not have milk for the little ones! On the plus side the food was good.

Great food and great atmosphere for the whole family. I love restaurants that come highly recommended by locals. Our captain on the Sea Screamer recommended J. Michael's, so we tried it the next day and were so glad we did. We will be back next time we vacation in Panama City.

If you are not looking to go broke eating on vacation eat here. This place beats them all in price and many in taste. The only problem we had this time is our waitress didnt really want to be there. She could not hide her distaste in waiting on her customers. Had this been our first time here we would... More
