    Shrimp City Seafood Shack!

    If you are staying in Panama City and have the ability to cook in your accomodations, stop by a local market and pick up some fresh local seafood.

    We've been going to Shrimp City for years now. They offer a variety of fresh shrimp and fish along with alligator and frozen Crab Legs. If you want, they'll steam them for you free. The prices here are less than at the Captain Anderson's pier and the people are very friendly and helpful.

    They are located on Thomas Drive a little north of Captain Andersons. Look for Billy's Oysters and Pier 77. Pier 77 is owned by the same people who own Shrimp City so you can "try before you buy" if you would like! Open 7 Days a week.

  • What culture?? We're talking...

    What culture?? We're talking about the Redneck Riviera! Really though, Panama City Beach is just a little southern town that happens to attract several million visitors a year. Very laid back (don't bother to bring your suit). There is a thriving artist colony in the old St. Andrews section of downtown Panama City (across the bridge from the beach area).

    Tipping

    Living in PCB for 22 years, I've realized that old Canadians DO NOT TIP at restaurants! This is one of the most insulting thing you can do to someone who works for less than 1/2 of minimum wage. If you want to leave a good impression for the locals, tip your waiter/waitress and barmen.
