My wife and I visited Dusty’s on a non-holiday Friday night in July. This was our first visit there. Based on other reviews, we expected a long wait and looked forward to oysters and other local seafood. We arrived at 6:45 PM and were given a wait time of about 1 hour and 15 minutes. Here’s my review based on... More

TERRIFIC!!!! We have been vacationing at the beach for almost 30 years now. We stay about 1 mile from Dusty's every year and only last year was the first time we ate there. Yes, if you don't get there early, like other great places in Panama City, you do have a wait. First time to get their grilled seafood platter... More

I have been going to Dusty's for a while. I am a native to Panama city beach. The food is good and Scottie O can shuck those oysters!!! That is why he is a champion oyster shucker. Oysters are great. And you can view a lake from the back or the ocean from the front of the restaurant. What is... More

We arrived at Dusty's for dinner after 6 and there was a crowd outside. Not unusual for PCB. It was only my daughter and I, and the hostess said since it was just 2 our wait would not be too long. In the long run it did not matter. We waited exactly 3 hours for a table. The only reason... More

My wife & I loved everything about Dusty's. The oysters are amazing. We also had the fried shrimp, blackened scallops, fried green tomatoes, and hush puppies. They were all the best we've had in Florida! We went back three nights in a row. Expect a long wait at dinner time. Insider tip, sit at the bar, full service & much... More

Go to Dusty's every year !! Absolutely love it. Yes it's going to be very busy because it is one of if not the best around. Do not go and expect to be seated right away. I'll wait all night to get in. The oysters are amazing !!! Can't wait to go back

Love love love the oysters! Always visit multiple times when we are at the beach. During summer months, if you prefer no wait! go at lunchtime or get there around 4:00.

We got there friday night July 11, 2014, was told maybe 45 minutes turn into hour and a half . we realized that the hostess station wasn't very organized by the way the place was packed, I think we were over looked. After more then a hour and a half we left.

Dusty's is the absolute BEST Oyster Bar on the beach, it it's TOUGH to get in there. It's just as small and quaint and quirky as it's always been....but everyone now knows it's the best. They have cool patio with tables and umbrellas out front right on front beach road, so waiting isn't too bad and the food.....well if you... More
