“Good fresh seafood, not fancy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2011

OK, let me start off by saying we usually like more upscale restaurants . . . Dined at Firefly the night before but also wanted to change it up a little, so we tried Dee's based on the good reviews here. Dee's Hangout is in a strip shopping center next to Pompano's, where we've dined many times before. No need to dress up, it's definitely a plain restaurant but the servers are friendly and everyone seemed to be enjoying their drinks and meals. Prices are very reasonable. We had the crabcake appetizer, which was the priciest on menu. 2 large crabcakes, crispy brown on outside, nicely seasoned with lots of crab but also some filler. Very tasty, especially with the scallions and remoulade drizzled on plate. Then we indulged in a special, Grilled Grouper with Grecian Salsa and feta cheese - rather a nice meal for such a hole in the wall! The grouper was very fresh and grilled to perfection, with a fresh topping of chopped olives, peppers, onions and feta - yum! Enjoyed the side of sweet potato fries but was a little disappointed with soft fried zucchini. Ordered a 1/2 loaf of French bread and butter, but didn't need it with the 2 tasty but greasy hushpuppies that accompanied the entree. We split everything, plenty for two so we passed on dessert. Saw other diners enjoying oysters (raw or baked), etouffee, tasty looking oyster po-boy, etc. Will probably return on next beach trip.

“Best meal in Panama City Beach”

Get the fish blackened. Sides are amazing (especially okra and sweet potato fries). Friendly service. Great overall value.

“A Bit Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2011

After reading all the positive reviews on Tripadvisor, I was eager to try this place. Unfortunately, I found it mediocre overall. There are definitely positives. Portions are large and service was polite and attentive. But the food was not that great. For example, I had a cajun red snapper special with cajun pasta. The waitress said it was one of their most popular dishes. The fish was fresh (which I would expect being across the street from the ocean), but it was basically just fish fried in batter. Nothing special or cajun about it. The pasta was way overcooked and gooey. It tasted like it had been sitting on a warming tray for hours. The other diners in my group were not impressed with their dishes either. I really like cajun and creole food, and I would rate the food below average. The good value and service brings the rating up to average overall.

“Believe the reviews”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2011

If your really like great food and can give up atmosphere this place is the bomb! To top it off the prices are just as good. We had oysters on the half shell, Jambalaya, crawfish etouffee, and fish tacos. Every bite was a gastronomic experience. Park at the restaurant, walk over to Pineapple Willeys, have a cocktail while watching the sunset, and walk back to Dees and have a great meal.
