If you're looking for gourmet food in a quiet atmosphere, look elsewhere. If you're looking for good seafood in a hole-in-the-wall bar that's lots of fun and very friendly, don't miss Dusty's. We liked the ambiance here so much that we went twice during our stay in PCB. Dollar bills are stapled to the walls, ceiling and anywhere one can... More

We arrived 3pm ish for an early dinner. Told about 20 min wait so we grabbed a beer to wait. About 10 min later we were called. Knowing it was our main meal we were looking for a good variety of seafood. The seafood adventure was excellent. I had grilled and DH had fried. Grouper scallops shrimp and crab claws... More

Stopped by on an overnight pass through and this place was awesome!!! There was a small wait on a Friday night in Feb at approximately 8pm so we put our name in with the hostess and had a seat at the bar. The bartender was very friendly and we received our drinks quickly. He gave us menus to look at... More

Great place to go for a quick drink and food. My husband ate raw oysters. I had chowder. It was hearty and thick. Oysters were good. Watress was attentive and we were served fast. Check came fast,too. The place is always packed day and night. Other food on their menu must be good, but we have not gone back yet.

I actually went to this place twice while in PCB. I have some very close friends who live here and being the locals they are, they knew EXACTLY where we should have dinner once I flew in. The place doesn't look fancy from the outside and the inside is decorated with customer defaced $1 bills hanging from the ceilings and... More

Had dinner here several nights ago. Food was pretty good & service was above average. Atmosphere is kinda cool. I love fried oyesters & the ones here were good. We had the smoked tuna appetizer.& it was very good. Worth your time and money while in PCB.

On our winter trips to PCB we always make sure we make a visit to Dusty's part of our itinerary. We enjoyed great cold beer, raw oysters and fish and chips. Over the years we have tried a variety of menu items and always walk away fully satisfied. The restaurant atmosphere and the friendly, efficient staff make for a great... More

We've eaten there several times. This is a jumpin' joint. The food is great! Especially try the smoked tuna dip. The best I've had in Florida!
