    Captain Anderson's Restaurant - Expect a wait of at least 1 hour or longer, expensive meals, & small portions! All of the tourists flock here, but there are many other choices where the prices are more reasonable and the portions more generous.

    Hamilton's is just across the street. It is our favorite!

    Not too many here, unless you consider mini golf, arcades, and amusement parks tourist traps, the only one I can think of is 'Shell Island', when I went there all the shells i found were like the ones I found at the Motel.

  • Pineapple Willy's - You get only one refill

    by blueclip Written Jul 27, 2009

    Just an FYI - If you enjoy drinking what we all consider "refillable" drinks by any standards with your meal, make sure you hydrate yourself pretty well before dining at Willy's. You only get 1 refill on a regular cup unless you buy their 16oz mug for $4 (which includes unlimited refills).

  • dont waste your money going to panama city beach f

    by phhan Written Dec 11, 2010

    This place looks like it is going downhill in a hurry
    it is very rundown looking nothing to do that is fun
    but mini golf and ripleys and some upside down house
    that is over priced and very boring places to go.
    Seems seedy - don't leave your kids unattended !
    Those that go here for springbreak must have
    parents that don't check out where their kids are going
    or the parents would say NO WAY - main focus in this place
    is drinking beer for free - this is not a family place to go !!

    Unique Suggestions: Keep your kids close, ignore the screaming and noise
    outside from drunk people cruising up and down the roads - there is no noise
    controls in this community - yuk waste of money

    Fun Alternatives: Destin - beautiful

  • Panama City Beach Parkway

    by scrapiron72 Written Aug 22, 2011

    As soon as you come into PCB the speed limit goes from 55 to 45. At the base of the 45 mph sign is a PIG holding a radar gun. How any POS Cop can justify this is beyond me. I spent $200 before I even got to the crummy, seaweed stricken, trash laden, poor excuse for a beach. It ruined my whole trip and I will NOT be back. I guess once you have ran the tourists off, you gotta pay the bills somehow.

    Unique Suggestions: Pick a different beach
