My hubby and I went twice for lunch on Saturday and Sunday, during the "off season". We were greeted immediately, seated immediately, and the staff was friendly. This is an oyster bar. If you love oysters, you'll love Dusty's! This isn't a "romantic fine dining establishment". It's a no frills, simple and tasty joint. Everything is served in plastic and... More

Clearly a local institution! I never visit PCB without stopping in at Dusty's a couple of times. Not the fanciest dinning destination at the beach, however, a fun, relaxed setting with great oysters, great people, and a nice cold beer!

We decided to look up Dusty's Oyster Bar after reading good reviews. It totally lived up to expectations. Dusty's is a very busy place, so plan to wait for a table. My wife and I grabbed a couple of chairs at the bar rather than wait the hour or more for a table. We had a couple of dozen oysters... More

This is a very unique place to eat! We parked and walked from Pier Park. There were 5 of us. Between us we had deep fried shrimp, fried clams, fried scallops, fried mushrooms, deviled crab, grouper, jalapeño hush puppies, French fries, slaw, key lime pie and deep fried cheesecake. I could not pick out my favorite thing because it was... More

Ate at Dusty today ... A tourist hotspot in Panama City Beach. Disappointing from the outset. Ordered two glasses of waters while we reviewed the menu. Waitress brings us two bottles of WalMart bottled water, charging us a $1 a bottle for a bottle that costs just .12 cents. We told her "no, we simply wanted glasses of water" which... More

We ate at Dusty's after church on Sunday. It was not as crowded as I imagined it might be; because November is the "off season". I can't seem to go to a place like this and not order fried oysters! Dusty's is definitely the "No Frills Grill", as everything is paper and plastic; but it sure is delicious! The atmosphere... More

Unpretentious place with great atmosphere, fun staff and really delicious oysters. Row oysters are on top, but their baked are too so tasty. Prices. It's really cheap here, expecially when you come from Europe.

My husband loves raw oysters so we stopped here to eat...He said Dat Cajun Place served better oysters and the service was a lot more friendlier. With that said The sea food I ordered was good there was a lot of it and my husband helped me eat it. The atmosphere was interesting..I would call the ole time beach party... More
