Arrived in Panama City Beach just after lunch and needed to grab a bite. The clerk at the hotel recommended Mike's but suggested I go right there because the lunch kitchen closes at 2:00. The oyster bar at Mike's, however, stays open till 9:00. We drove over and ordered a couple of cold ones, a dozen oysters, a BLT. and... More

We had the pancakes. They were a bit sweeter than I am used to but they were ample in size. The potions were good; sausage and bacon were three slices where as some places give you just two. I had the beach hash and it was good but it is topped with American cheese which is a bit bland. The... More

Service was below average. Our waitress was seemingly in a bad mood and it didn't feel welcoming. The oysters were great, but our meals were pretty basic.

We arrived to a wait time of an hour and chose to stay because it was Saturday night and the reviews were good. We waited more than an hour and the service was a bit slow. The food was good and the Captain's Platter was excellent. Would definitely arrive earlier next time.

We love this restaurant. Great service, great food. Menu is heavy on local seafood - good selections. Some really good dishes. Plenty of other sandwiches and burgers too. I had the PCB Shrimp; it's a shrimp scampi type dish baked with a horseradish sauce and cheese on top. Very different and delicious! Appalach oysters were very good too. Highly recommend... More

Found my new favorite place! We had breakfast for two of the four days we stayed and it was excellent both times. Two eggs any style, bacon, ham or sausage, grits and toast for $6.95...they even garnished the plates! Home made pancakes and waffles and the grits were creamy and delicious. Like I said, my new favorite spot!

I love oysters. Came for dinner. Only oyster poor boy on menu. Why advertise as an oyster bar when you have none. Plus I had to watch fox news and Bill O'Reilly and Miller on the tv. Screw the political view. Taking my hard earned union dollars and taste buds elsewhere. Waittress was tremendous and friendly. Food was good, but... More

We spent a month at Panama City and bar none this was our favorite. One must try their fried soft crabs.Their seafood came in a strong second. Try it and be sure to meet Mr.Mike.
