We waited for oysters until we were leaving PCB - Dusty's is the place for oysters in PCB - We will be back next year!

We had to wait awhile, but being able to grab drinks at the bar helped. The food was very salty. The oysters tasted like chlorine water. There was nothing memorable. Skip this place.

For the last 15+ years, this place hasn’t changed a bit when it comes to serving the best food on the Panama City Beach strip. You can find fancier places with brighter lights & famous names but you won’t find any better food. It’s simply...great!!More

Thank you’ we appreciate the great review

We love this place. We have a place about 30 minutes away and come Heck or High Water, we come here as much as we can. Yes, it can be crowded, especially during their happy hour, but worth the wait. It's just my husband and...I so we can usually easily get seats at the bar (and the salty bartenders/oyster shuckers are a hoot!!) So the oysters (we always get raw) are always cold and just really good!!! Shucked right in front of you. BUT, I am telling you, if you like wings, and we love wings, their Buddha wings are the best I have EVER had anywhere and I've had them all! In between baked and fried, not too breaded. They are huge and their Medium sauce is FANTASTIC. You have to try them. Again, we highly recommend Dusty's!!!!!More

My experience does not justify high rating. Raw oysters were warm and some had off taste. Much better Oysters at other restaurants in area. Food was only warm, not very tasty, and was over cooked. In back part of dining area, odor of garbage from...kitchen (no door) was present. An item in the seafood platter was not available. They said they would substitute but it didn’t appear they did. Waiter was good.More

After parking we went right in and were seated around 4:30 before they got busy. Bu 5:30 they were full. We sat in small round high top table . I ordered a draft and she had wine served in plastic cups🤔, interesting. I ordered the...dozen baked oysters done 4 different ways while she had scallops. They were very good and we were full. Service was good and waitress very friendly.More

Me & my family ate here several times while we stayed in PCB. The food was good and was reasonably priced. It was always very busy and we had to wait. I would visit again.

We were told to go here by several family and friends, and it did not dissappoint. We actually ended up going there 3 days in a row. Great food, great service and chill environment. I would highly recommend.

For years we have come to PBC for vacation and Dusty’s is always one of the meals we have to have! Their crab claws are the best! And the kids have a good time too with the fun atmosphere. Bring a $1 bill and a...pen so you can add your dollar to the wall!More

Best oysters I’ve had in PCB. Great wait staff and the scallops by the pound were fantastic. Would highly recommend giving them a try if you like a truly local feel.

Really great food and just a fun place to visit for lunch. The prices are average, but the food is really good for a place on the main strip of PCB .

Stopped by on the way home because of the fresh seafood & it was open. We ordered grouper Po Boys. Food great, server DruAnne was attentive & friendly! Ambiance is cool. Walls covered in dollar bills ,& the menu message states "They charge $5 if...you state the food is better up north!" LOL!! Soft & adult beverages available! They have Key Lime Pie!More

I did not expect to find Oysters Rockefeller on the menu from the looks of this place. We had a dozen and they were plump, fresh and delicious! Then came the soft shell crab dinner that was very generous! The wait staff was friendly and...efficient. This has to be a favorite of locals and frequent visitors. Don’t miss it.More

They weren't kidding about the dollar bills all over the walls. Someone's pension is hanging up there for sure. Food was good, servers are very friendly.
