We have been there many times in the past, a favorite of the locals and visitors. If you're looking for good seafood, lunch and dinner this is the place to go......

My husband and I discovered why the parking lot is filled at lunch and dinner time. The food here is really good! We went late afternoon and beat the crowd. The blackened grouper was delicious!

As others have said, don't let the exterior put you off. The place is no frills: folding chairs and tables, dated decor. But the food is fresh and good. I had the shrimp, oysters and grouper dinner, husband had part of mine and big bowl of gumbo. Everything was excellent but a bit pricey. Definitely worth the stop

An unexpected gift to find this lovely family run restaurant. Having tried raw oysters across about 75% of the US, surprised to find Posey's has the best so far on our trip! Plump, juicy, fresh and extremely tasty! Memaw Posey, Papa Posey, their kids (expect for the one who catches all the food fresh for the restaurant) and the grandkids... More

By far, Posey's has the best grilled grouper in Wakulla County. Seasoned well and large portions. My husband loves the prime rib.

We love eating here and enjoy everything: oysters, shrimp, blue crab claws, crab cakes, cheese grits, slaw and more. We would come more often, but it is about 60 miles from where we stay on St. George Island each winter. The service is always excellent and food is always great!

My wife and I came this way for late lunch. If you select a place based on how the outside looks you will miss the opportunity for good food. Once inside we were seated promptly and noticed that there were still a number of folks at the counter as well as a group with a special function in the rear.... More

I ate here because the restaurant I had in mind closer to the coast was closed. Ample parking. I sat at the counter and ate some great food. Everyone there was eating fried food. I asked a local man what happens if you have a heart attack in Panacea. He said that you have to drive all the way to... More

Posey's doesn't look like much from the outside, and when you walk through the door, it doesn't look like much either. It certainly isn't anything fancy. The seating is either at the small bar, or at some of the old cafeteria style tables made of plastic. What you will find though is good food and great, friendly service. Keyna was... More

Don't let the outside deter you, excellent food, awesome service. We all had the blackened grouper, which the owner said was frozen, however it was the best ever. The cook, he specified not chef, did a fantastic job. Would definitely return when in the area again.
