Really didn't know what to expect- reviews had been generally favorable. The overall appearance is that they've been at this a long time, in the same place. Interior probably hasn't changed in years and years. Kept open mind and ordered Oysters Sandra(baked w/bacon) which were delicious. The wait staff was friendly, and service was quick. Tuesday night crowd was several... More

Thank you for the great review! We have been at it a long time.. Over 35 years! We hope you come back and join us again. Next time, try the Homemade Crab Cakes, Blackened Ahi Tuna or the Imperial Parmesan Filet - the best three things on the menu, in our opinion! The Crab Baked Oysters are also out of... More

I've been coming to PCB annually for over 30 years now, but just now this year decided to eat at Pier 77. And after our visit, I haven't been missing out on anything. The only reason we decided to eat there was because one of our friends likes to eat there. The inside of the restaurant is very bland. They... More

We went to Pier 77 to celebrate my birthday. The service was good. The cocktails were cold. But...the food was just so-so. The cold boiled shrimp appetizer was enough to share and very good. The cocktail sauce needed more horseradish. I asked for some and it came quickly. So far, so good. Our meals, my wife's grouper and my crab... More

Order the she crab soap, it will not disappoint you. I ordered the fry shrimp plate and the breading weighed down the shrimp. The crab cakes had a lot of filler and crab was smashed like tuna a dish to skip.

First let me say the place has no real ambiance...but then again you are at the beach and that should be enough. The raw oysters were shucked with the oyster connoisseur in mind. Easy to slurp from the shells...fresh and very cold. The basket selects were good. We shared a shrimp basket and a chicken tender basket...only real downside here... More

I had the chargrilled grouper. Very good! We ate there two nights in a row to get our fill of seafood. 9 people in my group and they did an excellent job taking care of us. We had a variety of items and all were good. Tonight will be steak at Angelos Steak House.

We went there with three other families. The food wasn't amazing but it was priced accordingly. For 6 of us to eat, with drinks, was less than $200 with tip.

If you want fancy, this place isn't for you! But if you want great food and service, then it is. We had gator and shrimp and it was wonderful. Good sized portions. This is a type place where the owner makes the rounds and makes sure you enjoy your meal. We will make this a regular stop on future trips!

Pier 77 is a local PCB seafood restaurant that has been in operation for over 35 years. Our seafood comes fresh from our sister business next door, Shrimp City, a gulf seafood market. Both establishments are ran by the same family, in fact, they are brother and sister. Sandra Arnold runs Pier 77 and Hal Dybdal operates Shrimp City, while their father, Mr. Harold Dybdal, acts as the family business consultant. Ask the locals and they will tell you Pier 77 is the hidden gem of Thomas Drive, that serves the best fried shrimp and she-crab soup in Panama City Beach! Our restaurant will be reopening on January 15th, 2015! We are excited to show you the incredible changes we have made during the off-season. Come out and help us celebrate our 35th year serving Bay County & our new and improved menu and decor!
