After a 45 minute wait, which we did not mind since it was Friday night, our appetizer, which was fried cheese curds, was fried to perfection and absolutely amazing. The fried grouper sandwich was one of the best sandwiches of the entire trip. The fish special, which was 8.99, was absolutely delicious!! Unbelievable price!! We're so glad that we found... More

Long wait to get seated but it was well worth the wait. The service was very good and the food was great. Our whole group had seafood. The food was hot when it arrived at the table. I would say this is a must go to place.

After checking out many restaurants in Panama City Beach for seafood, we decided to try J. Michael's. We were already a big fan of their outstanding roast beef supreme hot sandwich, but had not tried their fish. We both ordered the Grouper House Nouveau, grilled fresh grouper beautifully seasoned and topped with grilled onions, mushrooms and bell peppers. Can honestly... More

I got the jambalaya and it was pretty good; my wife got the chicken garlic pasta and it was amazing. If I return I will try the oysters. A favorite of locals it appeared at lunch. Really enjoyed the service provided by our waitress as well; being genuine goes a long way!

The menu has a little bit of everything: oysters, shrimp, sandwiches, burgers, steak, salads, red beans & rice. My husband is addicted... More

I had the shrimp burger which was the special that night. It was excellent. They have a pepper slaw too that is really good. Highly recommend visiting if your in... More

Went during vacation with 4 adults and 4 kids. About 530pm on a Tuesday. No wait, but it was during a tropical storm. Service was great. Kids meals were $6 and came with a goodie bag the kids loved. Adults dinner of catfish and shrimp were great, shrimp pasta was ehh at best. Would go again.

Most of our fried and broiled garlic shrimp were not deveined. That's just lazy. The majority of the seafood menu, including scallops, is fried. Hostesses need to wake up and greet guests as they arrive. We won't return.
