Boasting a long history as Panama City Beach’s go-to destination for crispy thin-crust pies, Marcus’ Gulf Pizza & Delivery is beloved among snowbirds and year-round locals alike. This charming restaurant has long held a laid-back atmosphere that appeals to visitors on the hunt for a break from the seafood shack ambiance that permeates so many of the area’s restaurants.

While some aspects of this mainstay have changed over the years, the masterpiece at the center of its success remains the same, right down to the oven in which it’s baked. The crust is wonderfully thin, calling attention to the quality of the toppings. Not everybody is a fan of this style of crust, so consider dining elsewhere if you prefer a little more substance — or if you like a lot of sauce, as Marcus tends to go light. If, however, you’re on the hunt for gluten-free dining, you’ll be pleased to find a crust option that abides by your dietary restrictions.

The dining area is comfortable, but certainly not fancy. If you want ambiance with your meal, you’ll be disappointed. Hence, the popularity of carry-out and delivery at this location. Not only are the pizzas brought to their final destination promptly and kept piping hot, all deliveries are free! 

A few of our favorite menu items include the following:

Build-Your-Own Pizza
Choose from an array of options for toppings, sauces, and sizes as you create the pizza of your dreams. Sauce options include red, white, BBQ, and olive oil. Add between one and five toppings or stick with cheese pizza. Choose between classics such as pepperoni and sausage or indulge your adventurous side with jalapeno peppers, pickled eggs, or rum raisins. 

Super Deluxe Pizza
If you prefer your pizza to be loaded with as many toppings as possible, you will delight in this favorite from the specialty menu. Carnivores will be satisfied, as it features pepperoni, Italian sausage, ham, and beef. Other toppings include black olives, onions, green peppers, and mushrooms. Anchovies and jalapenos are optional.

Cracked Pizza
If you’re in the mood for barbecue, give this unique pizza a try. Featuring an enticing BBQ sauce, it includes mozzarella cheese, grilled chicken, and bacon, plus the perfect amount of jalapeno to grant it a hint of spice.

Chicken Parmesan Sub
Despite its name, there’s more to this restaurant than pizza alone. You’ll also find an impressive selection of sub sandwiches on the menu, such as this hearty option. Several other excellent subs are offered, including a customizable version that allows you to select your favorite four toppings. Chips are provided on the side.

Spaghetti & Meatballs
If you’re craving a simple but satisfying pasta dish, try the spaghetti & meatballs. It’s most notable for its homemade sauce, although you’ll find the cheese garlic bread served on the side just as appealing.

House Salad
This delightfully fresh salad is loaded with mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, seedless cucumbers, olives, onion, and green pepper. Homemade croutons add plenty of crunch. Top with your choice of mozzarella or Feta cheese — and don’t forget to add dressing. Several choices are available, but the house garlic dressing is by far the tastiest.

Eat your fill of thin-crust pizza, pasta, subs, and salad at Marcus’ Gulf Pizza & Delivery. Enjoy the freedom to personalize your order as you see fit — you’ll be rewarded with a dinner that’s exactly to your liking.

Insider Tips:
– When you check the website, you might notice that there’s no easy option for ordering online. Your favorite pizza can be accessed via Grubhub, but most people continue to opt for traditional phone-based ordering. 
– The restaurant occasionally offers specials that aren’t featured on the menu. These can be found on the official Facebook page. Examples include taco and pulled pork pizzas.
