We stumbled upon this gem of a restaurant and are so happy we did! The staff was friendly, the restaurant was clean and the food delicious! We enjoyed the stuffed mushrooms, loved the blackened chicken sandwich and the seared tuna tacos were perfectly spicy.
The atmosphere, inside and out was clean and comfortable. We would definitley return to this establishment! Nothing, but great things to say!

This was he best dinner we had in Panama City Beach. The service started out slow but picked up. We had the cerviche which was very tasty and good sized. The tuna tacos were excellent, very tender and great flavor. The shrimp were good, and they give you plenty. This was better then your average restaurant, many unique dishes and they all tasted like they were cooked fresh. They do have a seafood buffet but I did not not try it, I much prefer a nicer small dinner then the buffets.

After waiting 42 minutes For a table we were finally seated. Ordered appetizers which was just okay and arrived in a timely manner. Then we ordered dinner, that's where the trouble began. We had 2 cocktails and then an hour and 12 mins. Later still nothing to eat. Needless to say we were very hungry and highly pissed. We had to get completely irate before anything was done. The management did give us our drinks free of charge because of the ridiculous wait time. The food finally came. I wished I had walked out when were threatening. It sucked! I couldn't believe I waited that long for that crap. Never, Never again! It cost our party of 6 $225.00 for wasting our time for terrible food. That was the price with the drinks deducted.

Great new place on the beach. Great food and atmosphere. Live music and the option to sit in or out.

Our server Ashley did an excellent job, attentive without being overbearing, friendly, and helped with food recommendations. Location very lovely, right on the beach, there is both open air dining or you can dine inside. Small parking lot in front, and additional parking across the street. As for the food, it was very good. At first I thought the crab cakes were a little expensive, however the serving was quite large and they were loaded with crab. We tried both the North by Northwest and the Runaway tacos, very tasty. They carry crafted local beers, worth trying. I would definitely go back.
