Arrived 530 and told there was 30min wait for inside or 45 outside…rain comes in so we sit inside. We called before arriving & were told they don’t take reservations or do call ahead, then a man walks up and loudly says he has a...reservation and is seated promptly. We had a good server and portions are generous but kitchen was extremely slow and restaurant was NOT full. Bacon was to be crispy on my sandwich and was not. Good onion rings.More

Food was good and service was outstanding! My daughter has a shrimp allergy. Two times the chef came out to check with us to update her order to make sure she was safe. We arrived at 5:00 and had to wait around 30 minutes for...a table. The wait was much longer for larger parties. Crab cakes were excellent!More

Very busy place, a long waitlist for the dining room so we decided to go to eat at the bar upstairs which was not too busy when we arrived. The food was good, tasty, and with good flavor. The bartender which also was our waitress...was very pleasant. The restaurant is very inviting, the bathroom was extremely clean.More

There was a long wait for the dining room, so we opted for a hi-top at the bar and sat immediately. Our server was great and took good care of us even though they were short staffed. The fish & chips were very good! They...were heavily battered (almost like pancake batter) - I had to leave some behind! But the fish was delicious. The battered gulf shrimp Platter was delicious and plenty of food. The fries were good but a bit soggy.More

We found a new favorite place! Nice place, clean, friendly. The food was great! We startedWith the calamari appetizer. It was cooked perfectly and I loved the jalapeño garnish. Gave the calamari a little extra kick! I got the fish and chips and hubby got...the jumbo shrimp. We loved the kale slaw side, nice change from the usual. The fish was cooked right, it was tender and flaky and was definitely fresh. Same for the shrimp it melted in your mouth. The service was great and we didn’t have to wait for anything. Annika, our server, was especially awesome and we appreciated her input when we asked for her advice on what to get. We will definitely be back, and will ask for her section!More

Based on the reviews, we decided to try this restaurant. The downstairs is inly open on the weekends so you have to climb a very steep flight of stairs then walk the full length of the deck to even get indoors. Our waitress may have...been new because she didn’t know the one N/A beer on the menu. Not even sure she knew what N/A was we ordered our drinks and she didn’t bring requested sweetener for ice tea and didn’t bring requested water. My pan seared grouper barely had any area that looked at all toasted. It was room temperature and tasted like someone poured a can of cream of mushroom soup on it. $25. My brother was being polite but Im pretty sure the shrimp Alfredo he ordered was not good and not hot. I told the waitress and she offered to send it back but Im not a fan of “sending it back.” So that was that. 3 people. $100 before tip. Not hot. No taste. Abysmal.More

After a 30 minute wait we were taken inside their indoor dining room. As is happening at many facilities, staffing was lacking but they were kept busy. Menu is limited but good. Their fried onion rings were delicious. Problem was they were delivered only 5...minutes before our entrees. Could not be enjoyed as an appetizer but became part of the meal. Prices were high but manageable. Not a real place for the family.( $11.00 for a grilled cheese).More

Their Fish n' Chips is big enough to split and still have some left. Do not try to eat this alone unless you have a huge appetite. The Cod is great, the breading is really tasty and the tarter sauce is superb. Get an order...of home made onion rings and that combination meal will be incredible. The prices are more than reasonable especially considering their location. Their Chicken Caesar salad is terrific, and huge as well. The crab cakes are great also. The service is prompt and friendly. We liked it so much that after dinner there the night before, we went to lunch there the next day.More

I have no idea of the status of Panama Hattie’s. If they are closed for remodelling then that is a good thing. They need to remodel.
