“Great Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Great food, great location. As many stated, it's like walking into a early 80's restaurant, desperately needs a remodel. Had the best waitress, she was amazing!

“Pretty dated steakhouse”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

This place needs a real injection of youth and some revamping. Think Piccadilly crowd in an 80's chateau style steakhouse. The surf and turf was ok, steak a tad overdone but tender, the lobster tails were very small and deep fried. The breading luckily slid right off the very mushy lobster. The load for the loaded baked potato was served in little plastic cups. At least the beer was cold. At $57 for surf and turf, 2 beers and a tip, not a bad deal.

“The finest beef in Panama City Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Our visit to Boars Head was a pleasant surprise! The ambiance is that of an olde English Inn or Tavern. They did a great job, especially for one room that was closed off (banquet room?). Our server, Rebecca, was friendly, informative and got everything spot on. They have a great menu and the food was terrific and very well presented for any major city and exceptional for PCB.

This is a "nice" restaurant in PCB and should be for one of those special nights.

I have been trying to get a good steak here in Panama City Beach and finally got it here. There were 4 of us and the food was great for all of us.

“desperate need for a remodel of everything”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013 via mobile

Boars Head is a landmark establishmentsin on the Beach since the 70's. At first glance of the restaurant you can see that there is zero attention to detail for maintenance on the exterior. The restaurant has an odor and in need of restoration. Food is average and menu needs a revamped. Typically PC Beach restaurants cater to tourist, this establishment is no different yes it does halfway cater to some locals.I think this restaurants owner is awaiting the next hurricane to wipe out the building so they can remodel. This place has the potential to be a truly great restaurant however until improvements were made I doubt I will ever eat there again
