On the Water (Gulf Views and All) 

Breathe in the fresh, salty air as you watch boats and beachgoers pass by from your patio deck table while dining at any of our beachfront restaurants.

Enjoy gulf views and delicious cuisine at Barefoot on the Beach Bar & Grill, open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Choose from an array of options, ranging from chicken wings and burgers to fresh oysters and shrimp baskets, and order a round of tropical cocktails. With equally scenic views, dine outdoors at Pier Park, featuring popular chain restaurants and local eateries specializing in various cuisine styles.

If you’re looking for great deals and solid drinks, our beach bars offer happy hour and other weekly specials and feature an extensive selection of beer, wine, and cocktails — all of which will put you in a tropical state of mind.

Best Seafood in Town

From fresh oysters and fancy eateries to grouper sandwiches and beachside dives, there’s more than one way to enjoy seafood in Panama City Beach.

Experience fine dining at The Grand Marlin Restaurant & Oyster Bar, which overlooks a scenic lagoon, and offers a variety of surf and turf dishes. Try a local seafood staple, the grouper sandwich, at various local eateries, like Dusty’s Oyster Bar. For additional fresh seafood, visit any of our seafood markets, including Anderson’s at Capt. Anderson’s Marina. Choose from a selection of shellfish and fish fillets and grill a seafood feast back at your vacation rental. 

Breakfast, Brunch & Cocktails

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so if you’re planning on spending most of your vacation out on the water, you may want to fuel up at some of our favorite local joints for breakfast and brunch beforehand.
