Had heard go reviews about this place. I guess I ruined it by expecting more. The sweet corn fritters were very very good, we had a mahi mahi basket fish was good, we also had shrimp and scallop Alfredo. Shrimp and scallops were good the pasta was overcooked spaghetti noodles, we also had the seafood platter with grouper, and grilled... More

Located at the end of a boat dock, don't expect air conditioning or nice furnishings. This is about good food in a small local dive. You can pull your boat up and step right into the restaurant (it's on that end of the boat dock). Only one server the day we went, but she was handling it very well. Fish... More

Fantastic brunch with a co-worker! I am not a bloody mary fan, but the Killer Mary is AMAZING! If the crab cake benedict is on the menu, do NOT pass it up!

Very casual, Excellent fresh never frozen seafood on the water. My family always wants to have lunch there when we go in our boat to Shell Island. Great Bloody Marys, great fries. Always order the grilled fish sandwich. No one has ever been disappointed. The Owners do the cooking and help you tie up when docking. The kids can feed... More

We actually went here last year with a friend. Returned this year and it was the first place we headed. Great Food. Rustic Bayou setting. Service was friendly and quick. Since it is in Panama City and not by the beach, it is not on the beaten path.

Food is great! Live the atmosphere and local feel. Worth the drive from the beach. We love bringing friends to the bayou.

I stumbled upon this unique restaurant on the bay on my last day in Panama City. It is so peaceful, fruendly and fabulous that I truly wish I had found it earlier. Great breakfast, great service, great view. It is a little difficult to find but it's worth it -honest.

We found this restaurant while driving around Panama City. The first impression was that it might be a bit sketchy, but the food and the view were fabulous! Will definitely go back soon!

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
