If you want good seafood at a reasonable price, this is the place to go. You can count on a waiting list. They are very popular. Once you go, you will return. Service is good. Food is excellent.

Large oysters, bakers dozen. Raw or baked. Go at 11 am or after 1 pm to avoid the wait. Lunch menu available but only fried offered.

Hands down the best oysters I've ever laid my taste buds on. I'm not much for oysters on the half shell, but their baked oysters are out of this word. Try all of them. Our group of 3 went through about 6 dozen. Make sure you get the guys behind the bar to give you the special oyster sauce too.... More

We visit Hunts every time we are in Panama City, and it never disappoints. The only bad part is the wait to get a table, but that is only because every one else knows how good it is too. The grilled Mahi sandwich is the bomb!

Saw the reviews on TripAdvisor so tried to give it a shot. We went early (4:00) to beat the rush and still got the only available table. The food did not disappoint. We had fried gator, catfish and a burger!! It was all spectacular as we sampled each entree. The place is tiny and loud so be ready to hear... More

There are 3 seafood restaurants in the area. Hunt's, Captains table one block south of Hunt's and Uncle Ernie's 1 block west of Hunt's. Hunt's is above average, Captains Table below average and Uncle Ernie's outstanding. While Hunt's is what it is, I will eat at Uncle Ernie's 3 times and skip the others. Don't even consider Captains Table. Eat... More

Went here on a recommendation and was not disappointed. Had the blackened grouper. Perfectly prepared, and a sizable portion. Nice laid back atmosphere.
