This is a great experience, good food with fair prices and a really cool atmosphere if you're into Jimmy Buffet. They have performers walking around on stilts making balloon animals for the kids. Just a good time all around.
This is such a fun place to eat while in PCB! The food is great, and so is the service! Must try!!! Plus, last time I visited, they were raising money (had a bucket for change) for Autism! Since I have a child on the spectrum, I was very impressed!
Favorite Dish: Salad, Steak & Good ol' fashioned baked potato!
Billy's Oyster Bar has been around a LONG time. They serve great seafood and beer with a focus on Oysters. If you want oysters, this place is worth checking out. They've been doing it so long that they must be doing it right.
Favorite Dish: While oysters are their speciality, I thought the boiled shrimp was the best. I'm not a huge oyster fan but friends who are go to Billy's.
The Cold Beer ain't too bad either! :)
Pineapple Willie's is located right on the beach just off Thomas Drive. In addition to the restaurant, they have a pier that you can dine on when the weather is good. Inside they have a load of TV's which are usually tuned to a Race during Nascar season. Other times, it's the sport of the day.
Pineapple Willie's was featured in a Visa commercial so don't bring your American Express.
Favorite Dish: Ribs are their specialty. They slow cook them with a Jack Daniels Sauce and they literally fall off the bone when you pick them up. Served in a bucket that your kid can take to the beach and fill with sand while you are working off the ribs!
The Fried Shrimp is also pretty good.
Like many other Panama City Restaurants, they have a full bar and offer a variety of signature drinks.
There is a bounty of great seafood and special treats at The Sunset. Service is excellent and the atmosphere is relaxing. Prices seem to vary a bit with the season, but it is a great dining experience. I've eaten there many times and never had a bad meal.
Favorite Dish: All you can eat Seafood Buffet.

We ate at Captain Anderson's Restaurants on the lagoon per a local's recommendation.
It is a huge restaurant, that to me seemed like any other seafood restaurant that I have ever ate at while at the beach. Nothing special to it in my opinion, but it was the priciest during our five days there. $120 for two people.
Favorite Dish: They have an assortment of sea food. Normal fare.
After a morning at the beach, the sea air was whetting the appetite just a little. Not far from where we had stopped we find this little diner. More in need of a drink than anything we ventured in.
I wish I had taken more notice on the background of this little diner as it had apparently been around for many many years. You could take away from outside or come inside to airconditioning and dine. I had my first coleslaw dog - a nice size for my appetite but I did steal a few chips (fries) as well which were good. Drinks were refilled free of charge.
A great place to come off the beach from as there was no formality on what you were wearing or the amount of sand you were trailing behind you.
For dinner we went to Dirty Dick's Crab House. This was (as you might expect) a seafood place with red and white check oilcloth on the tables.
They have other restaurants in other locations such as a restaurant in Kill Devil Hills (ByPass at Mile Post 9.5) or south in Avon (Avon Pier area) or Virginia Beach location at Rudee Inlet.
Favorite Dish: We both had the Snow Crab special which came with 8 legs, and boiled potatoes and a small piece of corn on the cob. Sort of like a New England clambake, except with snow crab instead of lobster and clams.
Then I asked for a dessert. I can't remember what I asked for, but Bob asked for pecan pie. All there was was a King Cake (like they have in New Orleans at Mardi Gras), and a brownie sundae. Bob had the brownie sundae, and I took the King Cake, which was stale.
Super View on the beach, covered pier area is where we ate and the food was great. Sarah got the Grouper Po Boy (12.59) and I got the Shimp Po Boy (11.59) both were awesome and were packed with meat! We got french fries with them and they were really good too. I decided to try the Pineapple Willy's drink (alcoholic) that came with a neat cup, and it was very refreshing especially if you like pineapple and coconut.
Favorite Dish: Shrimp Po Boy and Grouper Po Boy, perfectly cooked and packed in a foot long bun served with crispy french fries for a delicious all around meal! Id eat it again any day!
Tony Roma's is a chain that does ribs, seafood and steaks. We were a bit tired of seafood, so we went here.
Unfortunately, all the Tony Roma's in the Panama City Florida area are closed. The only ones remaining in FLorida are around Miami or on the east coast
Favorite Dish: Bob got a rack of ribs and I got the 'naughty' special which had ribs and steak. I only ate the ribs and brought the steak home for lunch. $40 before tip
This was our favorite restaurant in Panama City Beach. Unfortunately, one of the late season Hurricanes in 2004 destroyed the roof and repairs have not been completed. Hamilton's has been closed all summer of 2005. We are so sad :(
Favorite Dish: Everything we have tried was good. We get the Seafood Platter!! Lots of food!
Low to Moderate Price. Great Family restaurant! Located on the beach. You can even eat out on the covered deck and watch activities along the beach while you eat!
Favorite Dish: Seafood, Ribs, Salads, Sandwiches. I got the Seafood Bucket!!
WOW SO MANY TO CHOSE FROM I'D BE SCARED TO SAY WHICH WAS BEST SO I'LL JUST NAME SOME. SHARKEY'S BOARS HEAD, MARINER, CAPT. ANDERSONS, MAKO'S ENJOY
ALL UNIQUE EACH WITH THERE OWN WAY OF SHARING THE SEA AND PART OF FL.
Favorite Dish: ITS ALL GREA
Allens seafood restaurant!
Note: Allens burned to the ground about a week after my last visit but the family is rebuilding now and should re-open this summer (2000).
Locals eat here (that should tell you something right off).
Since it's off the beach the prices are lower. It offers first class fresh seafood in a family atmosphere with a lovely view of the bay.
Favorite Dish: She crab soup..decadent! Gulf fresh red snapper. Deviled crab. Fresh oysters, shucked while you watch. My mouth is watering.
There's a plehora of restaurant from which to choose.
The grouper at The Lighthouse Restaurant was the best fish I ever had in my life.The same is true for the prime rib at the Boar's Head Restaurant and Tavern.
Big tip: split the king size with your spouse.
You'll save money and still not able to eat another bite when you finish.
