Dirty Dick's has great seafood that's value priced!

The raw oysters were large, fresh, and very reasonably price. The New England style clam chowder may have been the best we ever had. It was packed full of fresh clams. I had the New Orleans Seafood Boil and the wife had jumbo snow crab legs. Both were great. Her sides of new red potatoes... read more

We have eaten here before, in June and with our kids. Liked it just fine. Food was good, and we've never had a problem with service. This time it was just the two of us, in February. Apparently, it was their first night opening back up as well. So, we were a little disappointed that they didn't have any oysters... More

We eat at Dirty Dick's every time we go to Panama City Beach and more than once. We love the food and the service! Their prices are really reasonable too.

Great entertainment by the wait staff. They use a lot of sarcasm and four letter words. Be prepared if you bring your kids. We loved it even though we had to explain some things to our 10 year old.

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
