Just opened Feb 2013. Food is excellent.. Well seasoned ,without being overly spiced up.
For the beach, reasonably priced. Worth putting it on your "must eat at list"
They have tables.. Inside... Covered outside.. By the sizable pool with umbrellas.

Runaway Bay Caribbean Grill is quickly becoming one of my favorites in Panama City Beach. I love the quality of the food, the service and the beautiful setting. Located along side the lagoon on the Bay, you can dine outside, pool side near the Tiki bar. This was my second visit. Both times I had an incredible dining experience. I was so impressed with the quality of the entrees and appetizers. Be sure to ask about about their Specials when you go! You will not be disappointed. I look forward to my next visit! A fun family atmosphere. Manager Cami Burgess will immediately make you feel at home. Their head Chef David Rushing might be one of the best Chefs on the Beach.

Husband & I enjoyed a relaxing lunch & watching boats being moved with a marine forklift at the marina. We both had the special scamp grouper - we chose the pan fried preparation recommended by our waitress & it was great! The house salads were sad & had iceberg lettuce but we both got the citrus coconut vinaigrette dressing & loved the dressing. My side was pineapple rice pilaf - good but couldn't taste pineapple & had some crunchy rice. Husband got smashed potatoes. We split a key lime tart for dessert - it was pretty & tasted good but had too much whipped topping - more key lime would be better. In the ladies restroom they have wonderful Secret of the Island salt scrub - try it! Exfoliates & the oil still moisturizes your hands even after towel drying. It is sold in their gift shop. We enjoyed our lunch time there!

We had a group of 20 and received poor service so we left without eating. Manager was very prompt to address our issues so we will give them another try!
