They’re set right between the breathtaking waterfront and Front Beach Road, giving you the opportunity to gaze upon the beauty of Panama City Beach, Florida, while you eat.

If their serene setting is not enough to keep you coming back for more, their menu surely will. They offer all your favorites for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, many of which put the flavors of the Gulf Coast front and center. Their shrimp tacos, gumbo, fried alligator, and much more easily hit the spot and promise to leave you feeling satisfied for hours afterward.

You can hop in the pool while you wait for your food to arrive or to work off the calories afterward. Or you can grab a seat by the bar and watch exciting sports games on the TV. Of course, there’s always the option to watch the waves roll in as you chill at the table with your group.

You absolutely must try their:

Corned Beef Hash
To start your day off right, don’t hesitate to get the corned beef hash. They start this dish by chopping up potatoes, onions, peppers, and lean corned beef. Then, they fry it all up together and top it with two eggs cooked just how you want.

Bacon Egg and Cheese Bagel
If a breakfast sandwich calls your name instead, get the Bacon Egg and Cheese Bagel. This hearty meal begins with a toasted bagel that’s covered in two eggs, American cheese, and crispy bacon. Once that’s done, they slice your sandwich in half and fill the rest of the plate with country-style potatoes.

Crab & Shrimp Dip
When you want to revel in all the flavors of the Gulf, order up the Crab & Shrimp Dip. This dish features hot shrimp and crab made into a tasty dip. Around that, they provide lots of house-made tortilla chips and put plenty of pickled jalapenos over the top.

Buffalo Chicken Flatbread
The Buffalo Chicken Flatbread is one of the signature dishes proudly served at this location. It starts with a generous portion of flatbread that’s absolutely slathered in mozzarella, buffalo chicken, and bleu cheese. The entire thing goes under the broiler until bubbling hot and lightly browned, then gets sliced up and serve to your table with a smile.

As you enjoy your meal, remember to save a little room for dessert. Their Key Lime Pie and House Made Rum Raisin Bread Pudding is absolutely to die for and well worth the price. Each of their desserts are big enough to share, though you’ll likely want to save whatever’s left for later. You can always order extra to go if you need another taste at the end of the evening. If you prefer an icy cold treat instead, they have smoothies in all the best flavors, including pina colada.
