A buddy of mine wanted to try this place so we made the drive over to Panama City to check it out. I don't think you would ever think about eating at this place if you were driving by. In fact it might be one of the best kept secrets in the PCB area. ith only outdoor seating and less... More

Good place when weather is cool enough to eat outside. Lovely water view. I've only been for breakfast and always loved the food and service, too.

All four of our entree's were very good. Fish was large portion & cooked to perfection. Great salad. The side vegetable they call super food is not so super.It is sort of like a cole slaw but not really. None of our group cared much for it. It is on the water with a great view. Its sort of a...

I would not have chosen this restaurant if I drove by. I am glad I follow the good review and give it a try. We had seafood pasta and fried boudin balls. The pasta was very good, but the dessert was even better. We had Drunk & Ugly - stewed peaches with rum topped with cheesecake topping and ice cream.... More

Not inexpensive, but reasonable. The food is good, but the real star is the walk down the dock to get to it. You'll go back again and again.

If you are looking for inside, air conditioning and ambiance, don't go here. But if you want great food, on the water, outside (but covered with glass doors of it's raining) I would definitely recommend this place. The food, staff and view are magnificent. Highly recommend if you like quaint, local places with great food, this is the place.

Our family use to spend six weeks at a time here in Panama City. We would travel to Bayou Joe's by boat some times for breakfast, lunch & dinner. This continued for some 20 years. UNTIL .... the original owner sold their business. What a change! The food became fair and at times poor. Needless to say we stopped coming.... More

My husband and I google mapped restaurants the moment we pulled into Panama City and found a name: Bayou Joe's. We had a little difficulty finding it but, of course, we're not local so we trusted our GPS. Found a patch of sand and a wrought-iron arch leading towards the water. Walking through, we began to see docked boats and... More
