The food was good, not great. Service was also good. There are two sides to the restaurant one side with the bar and entertainment, the other side (where we were) with loud piped in music from the other side, the acoustics were not good. It was also the kids section, not that I mind children and family gatherings, but we... More

This place is the only one to eat at in PCB. Super clean, fabulous service, fantastic food! We had the lobster bisque, calamari (gluten free YEAH!!!), shrimp, burgers, salads, fresh fish and the lava cake, and every single item was the best I've eaten in PCB. They also had a very cool aquarium, yummy wine, and our server Mikael was... More

My husband and I went here for local seafood when on vacation and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere is nice and more "upscale" then some of the other local seafood places. The wine list was large and the grilled whitefish that was excellent. There was a gentleman that was playing the piano who did a great job and added... More

We ordered a large New York strip for my husband & I to share. It was $29.99 & when we got our steak we were not impressed with the quality of the beef. It was tough & the waitress never asked how the food was. I wouldn't go back there again due to the quality vs. the cost. The total... More

Unbelievable food! I felt like I was on an episode of Top Chef! Delicious Lobster. I tried the soup of the day which was Buffalo Chicken Noodle and it was amazing. Our waiter, we think his name may have been Greg, was very knowledgeable, well spoken, and provided great recommendations. Amazing customer service. Highly recommend.

We visit PCB yearly and typically eat here twice during our stay. First, the hostess (I believe her name was Shayla) is SO friendly and helpful. We requested our favorite waitress when we arrived on a Tuesday and when it was her day off and our backup favorite, Dillon Was off too, she promised we would be well taken care... More

This is a staple for our family. The massive aquarium is a hit but the consistent quality food at reasonable prices brings us back. MUCH better than Capt Andersons. Get the Redfish special.

This aquarium is a real attraction! The food here is also very good. Typical fresh catch prepared fresh. Good value for what you are getting.

My girlfriend and I went here on a lunch whilst seeing the sights of Panama City Beach and... wow, their food is absolutely awesome! Their Brazilian nachos are made in-house and are so fresh and crisp that we could have easily bought three. We both ordered their Mahi Mahi and it was made to perfection! Their side vegetables tasted like... More

First off, Warren is the best server I have ever had. He is soo attentive and good at his job. He has the best attitude and he will totally make your meal 100X better. He suggested the lobster bisque and when I say suggested I mean he sold it because we all got it. Just like he said it was... More

As soon as you enter our Panama City Beach restaurant, you will be wowed by the panoramic view of our newly designed 25,000-gallon tropical saltwater aquarium. Both our Café dining room and our more intimate Mermaid Room offer dazzling views of this tropical reef and its nonstop parade of exotic sea creatures. Our Gulf fresh seafood and choice steaks are amazing. If you are in the mood for Maine Lobster, you can choose your own from our live lobster tank. After dinner, order a drink or two and have some fun at the beach's only piano bar featuring Michael Rorah
