“Meh...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014

We went parasailing and only wound up here because we had to get our photos from here. While we waited on our pictures to be ready we decided to have lunch. I had the Hawaiian chicken sandwhich and it was good, but the service was lacking. We were shown to a table on the floor, but then noticed that there was beach side seating available and asked to be seated at a table there instead. The hostess acted like this was some sort of sin but sat us anyway. We weren't impressed. The drinks were watered down and there was what looked like blood on the mug they brought me. Needless to say, we aren't in a rush to go back here.

“Great view, great food, FANTASTIC waitress SHELLY!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2014

My wife and I actually had our wedding reception here 5 years ago after getting married on the beach (was a GREAT experience). We went back a couple of years later and had a fairly disappointing experience (as management had changed). I was here last week and they have updated some things and the food was VERY tasty! Shelly has to be one of the nicest and most involved waitresses they have. Very impressed with her and even the food runner was extremely helpful (very nice young guy). Highly recommend on your "to do list" while you are in PC!

The food was OK. We thought it was pricey. The menu had nothing grand to offer, out waiter did not recommend otherwise.

“Awesome food and great atmostphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2014

The best baked oysters you will EVER eat!! Also the crab legs were excellent as was the Cherry-Limeaide. This is a must visit place when you are in Panama City Beach. Tell them that you want to sit outside and you can eat by the water. I loved everything about this place. Not very expensive either.
