“Gulf view, great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014 via mobile

Some of the best Gulf shrimp I have ever eaten (15 jumbo) fall off the bone perfectly smoked ribs and great southern hospitality from all the staff. Add the gulf breeze and view with the outdoor seating makes for a unforgettable lunch experience. Outstanding! This is always our 1st meal in Panama City when we come here. We love it!!!

“Best Restaurant on PCB!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

Pineapple Willy's was recommended to us by several families who had dined there in the past... only one word comes to mind - FABULOUS! The atmosphere is very family oriented and, although the wait was long, the food and drinks made it worthwhile.... we will definitely be going back!

“Great eats on the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

Love sitting outside and having lunch on those days spent on the beach! We usually have a 3-45 minute wait but it's to be expected. Love the ribs, sandwiches and of course, drinks!

“Interesting place, good ribs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014 via mobile

Very good ribs, very good service and nice location. The ribs are their specialty. Fall off the bone, slow cooked, Jack Daniels sauce. Rest of the menu looked ok, nothing special. A little high in price.

“What a view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

Located on Thomas Drive, Pineapple Willys has a wonderful view on its pier. You can choose to dine inside or outside and on a windy day, they have flaps they let down to control the wind coming in. The wings are a little spicy. The fried shrimp and small potatoes were wonderful. The octane mixed drink is potent. We had pineapple cake to finish off the meal which was delectable. Again we were here during bike week, and they handled the crowd very well!
