This was a wonderful little "hole in the wall" place that we like to try and we were not disappointed. Our server was friendly and told us about some specials and a new appetizer. Our seafood platters came out hot and were very tasty. We would definitely go back

Could have eaten more just for the taste. Staff is always friendly. I eat here every time I go to PCB. They also have a wonderful grouper salad sandwich.

The Canadians decided to try oysters for the first time at Billy's Oyster Bar at Panama City Beach . Our waitress, Jenica was the absolute best !!! She suggested the oysters baked and told us how to eat them,and gave us a lesson about peeling shrimp ! The food was delicious ,served quickly and warm. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere was relaxing. Great Oyster Bar !

Our family spent on night in Panama City Beach on our way to Tampa, and all I could think about was finding a place just like this - no frills, a bunch of manly looking men shucking oysters, a friendly, professional waitress, sports television on, a good beer menu and excellent seafood. Billy's fit the bill on all counts. If you don't want to eat fresh oysters, don't bother stopping in, because that is what they do best. You know the stuff you are eating was in the water this morning, because it tastes that good. I love places like Billy's - you pay for good food, not some silly ambiance or name. And in a beach town, what else ya need? Oh, and yeah, it's really cheap, which is a plus!

A local had recommended we stop here for lunch but now wish we'd gone elsewhere. Okay, they specialize in oysters and shrimp and crab, and we didn't have those. Instead we had the shrimp and the fish po-boys. I ordered the fish blackened ($7.99) but you wouldn't know it by the result. A few black specs but certainly no particular taste. The fish itself was okay. My wife had the 1/2 shrimp po-boy & gumbo combo ($6.99). "Okay" was the best she could do. I think the server forgot about us because it took quite a while to bring the meals. The place was not crowded, just a few couples and a family. It looks like one of those "hole in the wall" places that sometimes comes through with great food. Maybe we should have tried their specialty.
