Panama City Beach restaurants build their success based around a central theme: Freshness. Fresh seafood, fresh ingredients, and even fresh air (for those who prefer dining "alfresco"). And while locals and frequent visitors all have their list of "can't miss" dining experiences for special occasions - or even just for lunch - many of the area's restaurants are consistently being praised on a national level for their efforts.

One of the publications that never overlooks the great eats in Panama City Beach is Florida Trend Magazine, who just honored two local restaurants. Firefly was named a Golden Spoon recipient (for the fourth straight year), and Capt. Anderson's Restaurant (a perennial winner and member of the Golden Spoon Hall of Fame) was named a Best Brand award winner.

Of course, the real prize for restaurants is creating satisfied customers who can't wait to come back! What's your favorite restaurant in Panama City Beach?
