We were fortunate to have had two meals, rehearsal dinner and wedding reception dinner. Every single dish was marvelous and the wait staff at the rehearsal were superb!! The only issue I could see is there was not a bigger, private room since the noise from piano man and restaurant prevented toasts and any of the other traditions at such... More

I recently took a friend to here to celebrate her birthday. We had appetizers and drinks at the bar and we're served by Dylan. He makes a mean martini and the food was wonderful too. When Dylan learned we were celebrating a birthday, he had the piano player play Happy Birthday for my friend and also presented her with a... More

This was recommended to us as the finest Resturant in the area. The food was excellent. The service was excellent. The lobster bisque soup was first rate. I had a fillet mignon steak that was perfectly prepared.

We love Salt Water Grill and always try to make one meal there if I'm the area! Great fried green tomatoes appetizer. Lobster bisque great! Subbed a small Greek salad with meal. Grouper Imperial always a winner! Good service. Just a very good place to eat in PCB - not all fried mullet and shrimp - a nice place!

If you love 5 Star Dining with a enchanting atmosphere! Throw in the Piano Bar and Masterful Drink-ologist at the Martini Bar! This is the Place!! Elegant dishes served by Professional service staff. Panama city is not a worth while destination if you dont check out the Saltwater Grill. This is now a MUST when we are in town. (The... More

We were much more than pleasantly surprised with the food and the service. Our waiter, Dillion just couldn't have done any better. The food was excellent, the service was excellent and our server, Dillion absolutely added such a pleasant, enjoyable and fantastic atmosphere! We highly recommend this restaurant and we will be back!!!!

Never had a bad meal here. Usually the meals are just superb. Service very professional. The steak and lobster are top on my list, but all the grilled seafood are excellent choices. Great Key Lime pie. Tuesday thru Saturday a great jazz pianist comes on at 6:30. Very good for an occasion. Children like it too!

Lobster was great and they had a large selection in the tank. My wife had the scallops and she liked them. Not a huge fan of PCB but this restaurant was surprising, I would recommend this one if you are in the area.

Description
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
