We had dinner at Saltwater Grill twice during our stay in Panama City, FL. We enjoyed the food. The service is excellent and the atmosphere is lovely with aquariums in the dining room areas. The caesar salad was superb as was the lobster tails!

When not a bite of food is left on your plate, it must be good! Recently we joined another couple for cocktails and dinner. We knew there would be a wait, but time passed quickly at the bar. Two large crabcakes were more than enough for one person. The pork loin was tender and juicy. No one left hungry or... More

This is a very nice restaurant with good food and good service. We have been to Saltwater Grill several times and always leave happy and full. It's fun to watch the fish swim around and sip on your favorite drink. Lots of restaurants in PCB but only a few that are a must see. This is one of them.

For the last year, this has been my top spot for dinner. I recently learned the restaurant was purchased and the new owners are doing a great job. They have created one of PCB's #1 places to enjoy great seafood. I love the Saltwater Grill Salad, but their fresh fish is always a great choice.

We went there after having seen ads for the restaurant. At first the wait receptionlet started to seat us in the bar area (I have no issue with eating in the bar area). The noise, however, in that area is not conducive to a quiet dinner; very noisy. They quickly reseated us in an area on the other side of... More

We had dinner at the Saltwater Grill during our recent visit to Panama City Beach. The first thing we noticed as we entered was the huge aquarium with beautiful exotic fish. The decor in the restaurant was very nice and the low lighting was very cozy. Our waiter, Travis, was very friendly and helpful. We had fried calamari as an... More

The service is always excellent. We enjoy this restaurant because my husband the beef eater enjoys great prime rib and I the seafood enjoy an excellent selection, both prepared properly, unusual. The atmosphere is pleasant and appetizers are above average. Price matches quality, this is a good dinner out. Rumors flying new owner will soon introduce a new menu.

We are locals, so we choose this restaurant for our wedding dinner on a Friday night of December 30th. I had called 2 months in advance and was never told they do not take reservations. I guess the place was sold has new ownership, no one called us to tell us. We arrived early for our 5:30 reservation, six adults... More

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
