Be ready to wait a while but worth it. Staff were so friendly. We ate outside on the covered back porch with kids. Overlooking large pond. Kids loved it. I got shrimp platter, mixture of fried shrimp, boiled shrimp and grilled shrimp. All were good, grilled was the best. One of the kids got wings they were good as well.

Food challenge! This is a two part challenge: The first part is to drink 10 beers and eat 10 raw oysters. The second part is not to throw up, because I hate oysters, unless they are baked Manhattan style. Let's just say that I didn't eat the oysters but I drink drink 10 beers and did not throw up. The...

You may have to wait a little for a table but it is by far one of the best seafood places in PCB. I never go to pcb without a stop at Dusty's.

Our family had tried to dine at Dusty"s at 6:00pm on a weekday. The wait was 1-2 hrs. We fully expected a wait but with 2 children that had been swimming all day, we had to choose takeout at a local pizza place. This is 100% our fault! We had waited too long to eat and knew full well they... More

This place is packed- early, late, whenever, expect to wait.... Bar atmosphere, but OK to bring your kids, Dusty's serves very good food for a good price. Very casual, plastic cups, turtle pond in the back. Order your shucked oysters right when you sit down- can take 30 minutes or more (they shuck them at the bar). Kitchen is a... More

We really liked going to eat here. 3 kids and 2 adults. Fast service and good food. Out back the turtles were abundant! Then we found the 2-3 ft gator. It was really cool the kiddos loved that!! I would recommend going. The atmosphere is relaxed and casual! It was raining money from everywhere, literally!!!

Not sure why people are willing to wait hours for a table here. No matter what time you go- you're going to wait. Then you wait for hour or more for cold food. May I suggest Dat Cajun Place. You won't be disappointed!

This place definitely lived up to the hype, but get there very early or you will be waiting in line for forever. The Oysters Rockefeller were amazing, the fried shrimp was some of the best we had ever eaten. Their price for oysters on the half shell and happy hour beers can't be matched anywhere nearby, skip the chain restaurants... More

Great food and atmosphere! Smoked tuna dip was a great appetizer. Shrimp po-boy and grouper po-boy were very fresh and filling!

This is one of our must places to visit when we come to P.C. It was recommended by a friend of ours a few years ago. You will have a wait depending on what time you go. There is no soft way to put that. It's peak season, so just slow your roll and relax. This time we were a... More
