“Not Hook'd”
Reviewed February 6, 2013 via mobile

Atmosphere outside overlooking The Pier is 5 stars - it was a beautiful sunny February day. The menu is NOT allergy friendly - only one fryer - so if you have any allergies to seafood or gluten you are out of luck. My lunch partner ordered fried oysters, I ended up with a turkey wrap that supposedly had avocado in it. His portion was small - maybe 6 oysters- I found no avocado, just a smear of guacamole. For the price paid we were not impressed and although we enjoyed the location we won't be going back.

“Worst service and experience ever”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

Pros- food was good. I mean, not 5 star quality but for ocean front restaurant it was pretty good food!
Loved the patio there.

Cons- Where do I start?? Tables were very dirty and what they "cleaned" it w/ didn't really help. We had a server who checked on us a total of 2 times the whole time we were there and the rest of the time, somone else checked on us once. That's it. We asked 3 times for blue cheese and never got it, my drink was empty at one point and never was replaced w/ a new one, and the 2 times our server DID check on us, we had to flag him down in the middle of him talking and sitting down w/ friends of his. Mind you, they were dead. Not only that, but when we got home from our vacation, they charged us not once, not twice, but 3 times for what we paid. It took forever for them to refund our checking account. Maybe it was just our experience that isn't typical and we just got dealt a bad hand...idk. but I won't return.

HPB_PCB, General Manager at Hook'd Pier Bar & Grill, responded to this review, February 3, 2014
In 2012 when you visited our establishment there was a credit card issue that affected over 700 guest. There was a system malfunction the doubled or tripled each transaction made, Hook'd Pier Bar and Grill made sure to correct every transaction and refund each customer to their original amount. Once again we want to apologize to all the customers affected by this nightmare.

“Feels like a local find in heart of touristy area”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Very good seafood lunch in the heart of a touristy area. The tuna dip was outstanding. Fresh oyster wasn't what I expected but good. Perfect portions and pretty reasonable prices for seafood in a busy area.

“We're HOOK'D !!!”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

My husband and I visited Hook'd Seafood Bar & Grill on the Pier park (Panama City Beach). This was on New Years' Eve, and it was a very special day. The food was AMAZING! We had crab cakes, BOOM BOOM shrimp and fish tacos. The staff are friendly people. Amy is a very good server and very friendly. There is a walkway there where you can walk down the steps and onto the beach. And next door to the restaurant is a airbrush T-shirt stand called SONSHINE airbrush. The ladys' name is Shannon and she is very nice and does an EXCELLENT job if you are looking to get a special airbrushed T-shirt from PCB. I definetly recommend visiting HOOK'D to anybody planning to visit PCB. We will be back cause' we are definetly HOOK'D !!!

“Nice surprise”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

We tried this place after reading horrible reviews about our first choice and great reviews about this place. My husband had the raved about fish tacos and loved them. Girls had chicken tenders and I had fried shrimp. Everything was wonderful and our server Zack was a blast. Much more reasonable than Pier Park establishments. On tap beer choices were disappointing but bottled selection is fair -- not a deal breaker though.
