Everyone should visit Posey’s just to get a feel for the local color of Panacea. Very friendly and helpful waitress. Seafood and cheeseburger ok.

This restaurant knows how to prepare seafood without distracting from the natural taste. They don't over season items to mask the natural flavor. Often times you have an average experience in a restaurant meal, but I never have been disappointed from a Posey's dinner.

You can't get fresher or better local seafood anywhere. Old Florida decor, very casual. Friendly, prompt service. The owners are Civic minded and support the local Panacea community.

Great family meals. We hold our meetings here and always have a lot of fresh food available. The peach cobbler is to die for. Mr. Noah and his family are so very cordial.

We ate here recently and had really good food, especially the grilled shrimp. The server was lovely and we enjoyed every morsel. It may not look like much from the road, but Posey's is worth a stop, or more!

Visited on a Saturday night. Service was not the best, food was ok and desserts were delicious. Not sure we will return with such slow service.

There is nothing fancy about the restaurant, in fact, it is very basic. There are a few indoor picnic tables and other round tables in a brightly lit dining area. It is not the decor but the food that's worth the drive. I had a...More

We ate at Posey's 3 times during our week long vacation at Alligator Point. The food was delicious, and the staff, especially Mr. Posey, were so friendly. The first time we went there they had grouper throats as a special. I had never heard of...More
