Some very good restaurants in the area. All were extended wait times so walked here. Friendly staff and the food was very good! Very good raw & Cajun baked oysters to start!! Split a prime rib gyro & shrimp tacos. Again, very good. Bay view our the side. No outside seating but a sister restaurant does. Thanks!!!

We ate raw oysters, which were great. We also had the prime rib gyro. Loved it! If you like gyros this was a great one with prime rib. Also had shrimp tacos which were really good. Service was pretty good as well.

We were referred by our hotel to see Hunt's for oysters and the lines outside kept us away. I turned to my hubby and said "Hey do you smell that BBQ?" We crossed the streets and Keith met us at the door. He has a delightful southern accent and told us to sit down. It's Happy Hour, 2 for 1... More

We usually come and sit at the bar. Sometimes outside is pretty cool too, on a hot day. This is the one place we come for oysters though. I like them big with lots of horseradish and hot Louisiana Sauce. And boy, they got 'em! This last time my boyfriend and I split Grouper Basket and it was just right,... More

We stumbled on to this place years back on our first visit to PCB. We continue to stop in to see Keith. He makes the place. The key lime pie is our all time favorite! Tried the bacon, 3 cheese oysters today. They did not disappoint.

Server had too many tables and no help! Disappointed customers everywhere and no manager to explain why it took over 90 minutes to cook food ... apparently it's standard operating procedure. I don't recommend this place at all.

We stopped in here on the 4th of July when they were very busy. Although there were 7 of us, we got pretty good service and food. We found a table big enough for us inside and the server took our order right away. Two of us had the tuna dip, and it was good. Husband had boiled shrimp, son-in-law... More

Are you looking for Ice Cold Oysters in Panama City? Down in Historic St. Andrews, take a wander along the side of The Shrimp Boat down in St. Andrews you will stumble across a little gem of a restaurant. The Salty Hawg has a reputation for ice cold oysters, cold beer and a warm atmosphere. Other more well known oyster bars in St. Andrews often have a waiting list. We serve up the exact same ice cold oysters as they do and there is usually a table available...but keep it a secret.... Inside this nautical flavored, cozy bar you can experience the finest oysters and accompany them by the fun and lively bar crew. We also serve up shareable sized appetizers, soups & salads, Po-Boys and basket meals of Mahi-Mahi, shrimp and chicken fingers. FSU fans just love the Fried Gator Tail Bites but we can't get Florida Fans to try them.
