Deep Fry the World!

We happened by Dirty Dick's one night when we were hungry. It was pleasant enough, but catered to a strong penchant for deep fried food. Since one of us doesn't eat wheat products, that caused some problems. Fortunately our waitress came to the rescue and gave us a hearty portion of crab legs. They... read more

Found this place on Trip Advisor ironically enough and was a little skeptical about going but I'm very glad I did. The food was very good and the wait staff was phenomaanl. My friends and I went on a busy Friday night and even though they were crowded, we were seated within 10 mins and it was definitely worth the... More

We have been in here before but walked out before giving it a try. ( I don't really know why we left. Just wasn't feeling seafood maybe?) My husband talked me into to going again. I was hesitant. We both thought it would be some touristy trap of Panama City and the food would be overpriced and marginal like many... More

They ran a Daily Deal in the newspaper, so we gave them a shot. My wife got the alfredo pasta ($23) and a bowl of she crab soup ($7). Average food for above average cost. My daughter went from the Early Bird menu and got the Crab Legs in a low country boil. They came with potatoes, corn, sausage and... More

The staff was quick to seat us.We just happened in behind a huge crowd and the servers were overwhelmed, but corrected it quickly. We had the crap legs and shrimp, it was very good. The sever was quick to bring additional crab legs if needed.... More

Ordered Cuban sandwich pork was a little fatty. It was an ok sandwich. My friend had a burger which he enjoyed. It was a big one! Prices were a little high, our meal for 2 was over $30. That's a lot for 2 sandwiches and 2 iced teas

We stopped by for an early dinner. Place was nearly empty being early on a weekday in the off season. The staff was pleasant but obviously unorganized. Our food was actually quite good. The Dixie chicken was quite a treat. Mashed potatoes were fantastic and the hush puppies were great. Early bird specials made it a total bargain. Service was... More
