We went to a place called Shuckems (motto - we shuckum, you suck um)which was VERY casual. Come in and seat yourself. Tables with graffiti carved in them and dollar bills stapled to the walls.
The prices were quite reasonable.
Favorite Dish: Bob had the house special which included a cup of clam chowder which had more clams than soup, a dozen oysters, steamed shrimp, hushpuppies, and fries for $16.95. I had an Oyster PoBoy for $13.95, and a cup of seafood gumbo for $4.95. My gumbo had sausage in it in addition to the seafood. The whole thing was $38.56 before tip.
I saw this restaurant as we were driving around Panama City Beach. They had been open less than a month when we were there. There was a myspace blog where you could get 10% off for mentioning it.
I have been told that the restaurant has now closed. This does not surprise me.
Favorite Dish: It is an all-you-can-eat buffet for $8.95 lunch and $11.95 dinner. In addition to soft drinks, they also have beer and wine, although the sign at the front admonishes "We Proof. Don't even try Getting Servied if you are Under 21"
Some people who had been there for several nights asked them to make pizza (which wasn't on the menu that day) and they were accommodated.
In addition to the hot buffet, the cold buffet and the dessert buffet (photo 4) there is now a pizza buffet included with pizza made fresh by Linda's husband every day.

The man who checked us in to the condo said that Bonefish had Early Bird Specials. But we couldn't find it. We tried two days in a row. Finally we took the phone book with us one morning and found it in the Grand Panama shopping center - not directly on the road. We went out on New Years Eve to visit some parks and afterwards we went directly to Bonefish for dinner. We got there a little before 1700.
We found out that they had happy hour specials on drinks, but not early bird specials for dinner. Although I didn't know it at the time, this is actually a chain restaurant
Even though we went in on New Years Eve, without a reservation, they did seat us. Possibly the fact that we were trying to be early enough for the supposed Early Bird Specials helped.
Favorite Dish: I had a cup of chowder , and the Tilapia with potatoes au gratin and green beans (photo 4). Bob had the Mahi mahi with mashed potatoes and green beans (photo 3). Total was $36.23 before tip, and it was all VERY good.
Pier 77 is a local seafood restaurant on Thomas Drive. The owners also own Shrimp City Seafood Market next door. The restaurant serves the freshest seafood at reasonable prices in a family atmosphere. There's nothing fancy about this restaurant, just good eating.
Favorite Dish: We opened with a bowl of Fried Pickles. If you've never tried them, you really should. They are awesome!
The Fried Shrimp were excellent as was the Fried Grouper. There are a variety of local catches which change daily.
Very nice restaurant! My wife had the Filet and honestly, it was the best that we've ever had.
I had Grouper. It was good, as Grouper shoud be. But the Filet.........!!
They have a great piano player there: Michael Rorah.
The steaks cost a few dollars more than chain restaurants but the extra $2 or $3 is well worth it.
The service is very good, too - good enough for me to leave a 25% tip.
Favorite Dish: Steak
They roam the restaurant giving you 12 fabulous meats that they serve directly to your table. Brazilian fare. It is terrific. The salad and side bar is awesome. LOTS to eat
Favorite Dish: You get to eat everything!!!!
All sorts of italian food with excellent pizzas and a very good wine list for such a small place. Also, for a touristy place, this restaurant is very reasonably priced considering how good it is.
Favorite Dish: The pizzas are out of this world.
A fun, laid back atmosphere located on the beach with live Reggae music and a tavern fare, this was one of my favorite places to hit up while in PCB. They had great food and wonderful drinks.
Look for this place and check it out if you are able. It was one of the highlights of the trip!
Favorite Dish: The ribs, definitely! They were delicious and meaty with an excellent tangy barbecue sauce. But bring lots of wet naps or something because half the fun was how messy they were to eat! I also recommend their pina colada to drink, they were to die for! A littel cherry juice topped with whipped cream and a maraschino cherry was the icing on the cake!
With all of the restaurants on the beach, it'd be hard to find one you aren't satisfied with. Most are family run restaurants with a laid-back, Jimmy Buffet atmosphere. A great way to spend a sunset is having dinner on the restaurant deck overlooking the beach. Many places offer this. Driving along Thomas Drive or Front Beach Road will bring you to dozens of places right on the beach.
We went to eat at Sharky's, and this was the most mediocre meal and service that we had for the whole week.
Favorite Dish: Bob had a dozen raw oysters and half pound of peel and eat shrimp. But of course the shrimp were cold and had no seasoning. I had the Grecian grilled tuna steak special for $13.99. I couldn't eat it all. It came with a salad.
We went to the Salt Water Grill for dinner. The attraction was that they served lobster seven ways, but it was too expensive for us.

The big attraction here was an enormous salt water tank in the center of the restaurant. It had what I presumed was fake coral that was very pretty. But there were only tiny fish in there. Our server said that they were restocking the tank and the little fish were put in first so that they would find there way around the tank before the big fish were put in. He said that they had a diver clean the inside of the tank once a month, and it was an event which all the local parents would bring their children to watch. Of course, they also had lobster tanks for you to pick your own lobsters.
Favorite Dish: They had an early bird menu from 4 to 5:30, and we got there at 2 minutes after 5:30, but she said we could do the Early Bird anyway. I did the roast chicken with blue crab stuffing from the early bird for $12.99. It came with a salad and a potato. Bob had the 2 "Maryland" crab cakes appetizer for $8.99 and a cup of lobster bisque ($5.50).
You walk in and it's like walking into a bakery in Europe.
The sweets are works of art. They aren't just sweet, sugary pretties. They have favor, other than just sweet.
Have a cup of coffee and a piece of cake and enjoy the view of the Gulf.
Favorite Dish: Everything
