The fried shrimp is bland and the hush puppies are extremely dry. R M: Crazy good red beans and rice and chicken Jambalaya.
Ann Simon: The burger with nacho cheese, seafood Cobb, and quesadilla are very good. Stan Elf rink: Grouper Sonoma with a glass of Boyle Chardonnay is the perfect meal.
The experience is one that should be on your list of “to-dos” while in PC Beach. Abi Carmen: Sarah, best waitress in the place.
Great service and the Monster cheeseburger was huge and delicious! Shannon Poland: If you go here on Spring Break you need to buy the Panamanian Club Card.
When you live on the coast, there’s an endless array of beautiful seafood at your fingertips, and best -loved examples of the killed glories of the Gulf include the grouper that swim offshore. Named for its original owner and founder, Dusty’s Oyster Bar has been a PanamaCityBeach landmark for more than three decades, known for a casual laid-back atmosphere where music is practically part of the menu.
They do just that by using fresh-caught fillets reeled in by local fishermen and serving them fried, grilled or blackened in a PO’boy roll to make sure you don’t leave hungry. Owner J. Michael Stewart delights in serving up fresh seafood, “Surfer” sandwiches and a whole tackle box full of other tasty dishes that keep reeling diners in.
Riding the rip curl when it comes to their handcrafted “Surfers” is the Fisherman’s Favorite, a grilled fillet of grouper served on a toasted onion roll with a slather of housemate tartar sauce that adds just the right amount of creaminess, crunch and acidity to make this one handheld that’s truly worth getting hooked on. Offering a wide variety of items from cheese curds to jerked chicken, Schooners lets the wind take them where it may when it comes to the style of their cuisine.
Experience full immersion by grabbing a seat outdoors under your own private umbrella as the waves crash and the cool sea breeze blows in. If the weather is nice, sit just inside the giant windowed garage doors for a taste of the Gulf life or on the deck for the total experience.
Dining options: Breakfast, Late Night, Lunch, Dinner, Takeout Description: Schooners is a classic laid back open-air beach shack.
Known affectionately as “The Last Local Beach Club,” Schooners keeps the focus on fresh, local seafood, icy cold beer and friendly service. Local bands keep the beach bar vibe rocking' along, there's usually a volley ball game going down on the beach, and the famous Sunset Celebration blasts the night off with a boom from the famous Schooners cannon.
The waitress was quick and attentive and took care of the entire group well. The only thing I would pass on is the coleslaw.
If you are looking for great fresh seafood here is a neat place. It’s right on the beach but away from the main area of the city.
I promise you will not be disappointed if you are looking for great fresh seafood. I was kicked out of this bar, in spite of paying cash for my drink and giving a generous tip, because I said I did not like Donald Trump.
A bad manager(s) can kill a business by driving away customers. I was eating with my husband and 6-week-old baby while my parents were in the water with my two-year-old.
Instead, they said our only option was to sit at a high top table (where you had to go up a few steps). They wanted to sit us with a two-year-old and stroller at a high top table.
I explained it was it feasible for us, because of the kids and my dad could not sit at a high top with a bad back since the chairs are stools. Bad management lost schooners at least a $150 bill.
We will never go back there and I recommend families stay away as well. Seating with a breeze from the beach is always nice.
