    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.

    Linda's Bella Cucina: Now CLOSED?

    by grandmaR Updated Sep 6, 2009

    Restaurant from the parking lot
    4 more images

    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.

    Dusty's Oyster Bar & Eatery: Good Seafood and Beer

    by Basaic Updated Feb 11, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dusty's
    1 more image

    Do not listen to the Panama City Beach Guide input on Dusty's. It says "Home of warm beer, lousy food, ugly waitresses and the two-time U. S. National Oyster Shucking Champion". Only the last part is true. The beer is cold, the food very good and the waitresses kinda cute. Lots of wood inside and dollar bills left by customers adorn the walls and ceiling. There is a bar too, if you are more interested in drinking than eating. Next time I will try the big seafood platter for $22. Hours are 11 AM to 11 PM daily.

    Favorite Dish: I had blackened catfish. It was very good but I needed larger portions.

    Bonefish Grill: Fishy Chain

    Bob walking in
    4 more images

    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 Seafood Restaurant: Pier 77 - Fresh Seafood at a reasonable price.

    by MatthewMetcalfe Written Sep 5, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pier 77 - Great Seafood

    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.

    Pink Pelican: We All Scream for Ice Cream

    by Basaic Updated Jan 11, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pink Pelican Ice Cream Bar

    The Pink Pelican is located in a non-descript strip mall with a crazy parking lot; but is well worth seeking out when you want some great ice cream. The Pink Pelican even made a list of best ice cream in the Huffington Post. A bit more expensive than most ice cream parlors but quite tasty. One scoop is packed and about the same as two scoops in some places. The girl working the counter (who looked about 14) was nice and friendly too. Also serves Italian ice and cappuccino. Winter hours are 12 PM to 5:30 PM. Regular hours are 11 AM to 10 PM.

    Favorite Dish: Black Cherry Ice Cream. Yummm!

    Mike's Cafe & Oyster Bar: Great Home Cooking; Friendly Staff

    by Basaic Updated Jan 11, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Mike's Cafe & Oyster Bar

    Mike's has a menu of southern style home cooking (like homemade meatloaf with greens and black eyed peas) along with fresh seafood. I had breakfast there with one of my cousins and tried their seafood omelet. It was excellent with fish, shrimp and scallops with Swiss cheese and a hollandaise sauce. My cousin is a regular here and was greeted with smiles and inquiries about family. I definitely recommend this place. Beer and wine served too.

    Favorite Dish: The seafood omelet was exceptional.

    Saltwater Grill: Great Steak

    by criss1956 Written Jan 30, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Very nice restaurant! My wife had the Filet and honestly, it was the best that we've ever had.
    Outstanding!
    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

    The Spicy Noodle: Good Italian on the Cheap

    by BigBlueOne Updated Jul 24, 2008

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Pineapple Willie's: So much fun!

    by HotRodEtte Updated Aug 10, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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!

    Sunset

    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.
