Typical Beach Fryer Junk

Skip this. You can do much better. We keep trying it once a year or so, thinking it's going to improve. Done doing that. Service is OK. Food is OK. Nothing special, and certainly not worth the price. And now they're selling all sorts of flea market stuff.

5 of us went in for "All you can eat crablegs". It came with corn and andouille sausage (sausage had Zero taste other than a hint of spice, it taste like it's been boiled in a pot of water all day). We were serve two crab claws and had to wait constantly I'm between for them to bring out 1... More

Way to many tables and was extremely crowded. The service was slow because we were seated but none of the servers new who's table it was so it took 30 minutes to get a drink and didn't get a refill because after our food came that's the last we saw of the waitress until she brought us our check.

I met the owner of this restaurant at the airport in Atlanta. He said that if I were ever back in Panama City Beach to come visit him at Dirty Dick's or Dick's Steakhouse, which happens to be right next door. It saddens me to have to write this review, because I had such high hopes for a good experience,... More

Took 12 minutes for server to come and acknowledge us. We were about to leave but he kept apologizing. Then when I got my meal my rice was still hard and way under cooked. The people across from us had the same issue. Our server was very nice and sincere and replaced my side with a better one. Just disappointed... More

Clean bathrooms, barn-like atmosphere with fair service are the highlights of this corporate seafood provider. The She Crab Soup had a paste-like consistency, was too rich and had a cheesy taste with no visible pieces of crab. Portions were massive. Clam Lnguini was oily and was served with FRIED clams. Fried Oysters did not taste fresh and were served with... More

I got the spiced shrimp steamer - shrimp was amazing! The other stuff, not so much. Their hush puppies are awesome also. The service was lacking quite considerably. It took us about 45 minutes between getting our appetizer and meal. There was maybe 5 other tables seated at the time. Our food was finally served and I had to wait... More
