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.

Ate lunch here a couple of days ago and had the fried oyster sandwich with slaw and fries. Yum! Rustic atmosphere adds to the charm. Great beer selection, tool.

I only gave 4 stars because the exterior and the interior could use a little clean up. The food was very good and the staff very friendly. You could tell this was a local place because they knew most patrons by their names.

Spectacular fresh fish and seafood, truly you can't judge this "book by its' cover" because if you do, you'll miss a great meal. We had the whole flounder, grilled and was a plate-sized fresh fish perfectly grilled with ample selected Gulf Coastal sides. From the numbers of locals eating there on a Friday night,this Resturant is clearly a hometown favorite.... More

Their are some choices for grilled and steamed fish and seafood. Lunch daily specials - The grilled flounder and slaw were good. Plenty of seating & back room for extra.

Stopped here on the way through to eat lunch and we are very glad we did. From the time we stepped in the door, until we left the service was down home good. We wanted for nothing. Catfish was the special of the day, it was done to perfection. Crispy on the outside, moist and tender on the inside. The... More
