“Great Oyster Bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

The oysters and beer were both teeth chattering cold, just the way I like them to be. We also had steamed shrimp. Excellent as well. We sat at the bar and enjoyed chatting with the guys shucking the oysters. Good food, good fun.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

I visit Panama City Florida at least every other Weekend since July 2012.
my son Diego and Family live there.
I LOve Oysters and always I'm in pursuit of the best ones.
FINALLY I fund Hunt's,my Son suggest me the name and how to get there.
Since then I go to have the Best,Service,Oysters and Heineken,Cold as a Penguin foots every other weekend.
The guys at the Oysters Bar are Super friendlies they know what they are doing and always the Oysters are FRESH,SALTIEST,CLEAN and you find two or tree more in your Dozens.
Nothing Better than:fresh Lime,Tabasco. The way We eat them In El Salvador.C.A

“Don't waste your time!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Florida had plenty of wonderful seafood restaurants and this was a complete waste of time. We sat waiting for 2 hours to find out that they had overlooked my name on the list, when confronted about it they told me they had called me and I did not answer. I had been sitting right in front of the PA system for an hour and 45 minutes, aside from waiting for beer at the bar for the other 15 minutes. To top it all off, you have roughly 75 people that have also been waiting for 2+ hours and when the owners family shows up out of the blue, they get seated within 10 minutes, ahead of all the true customers. Needless to say, I will not be back they have lost potential new customers due to their lack of customer service and poor management.

“Great Local Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

We waited 45 minutes for our table but it was well worth it, my husband loves oysters and I loved the fried shrimp dinner!!! This place is more local and off the Panama strip but it was worth the 20 minute drive from St Andrews park to get there.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

My mother and I went for lunch. We didn't wait long at all (we were willing to though). The service was fabulous. The food was so much better then I thought it would be. The oysters are the best around! Highly recommend going!
