Stunning Beach Views, and Nothing Less:
Dining in Panama City Beach means the chance to watch the sun go down over the Gulf of Mexico while you indulge in the catch of the day.
Take advantage of Florida’s beautiful northern coast, with a water view while on vacation.
The three Panama City Beach restaurants below offer some of the most stunning views you can possibly find in the area. With food to match the scenery, these restaurants are must-visits during your stay at one of our Panama City Beach vacation rentals.
Hook’d Pier and Grill
Location: 16201 Front Beach Rd., Panama City Beach, FL
Hook’d know they have a premier location on the water. The website even includes a page for photos, a celebration of its sensational coastline views frequently snapped from the outdoor seating area.
This uninterrupted water view is complemented by a nearby pier and a walking path, where locals and visitors gather to fish, jog, and play. The restaurant’s ocean-inspired décor ties together perfectly laid-back atmosphere and casual food.
The menu includes all a variety of specialty dishes, such as a cheesesteak covered in melted provolone and sautéed peppers and fish and shrimp tacos smothered a tropical mango-pico blend sauce – and much more. It is open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day.
Sharkey’s Beachfront Restaurant
Location: 15201 Front Beach Rd., Panama City Beach, FL
Sharkey’s is big, bombastic, and open almost all the time. From 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day of the week, you can grab a meal and a mean margarita – all overlooking the crystal blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
Some menu highlights include a mango salad, the Hawaiian tuna poke, the famous Shark Bites, and the Seafood Mac and Cheese – the likely candidate one of the most desirable local delicacies – made with Tasso cheese, Bay scallops, crawfish, shrimp, and Panko breadcrumbs.
Not only a feast for the eyes and mouth, Sharkey’s has live music almost every night of the week. When there is no live music (most Sundays, for example), you’ll find a fun social event, such as trivia or bingo.
Have a cold beer or a frozen drink against the backdrop of a beautiful water view. Listen to local artists jam out as the sun rolls over the horizon. It doesn’t get much better than this. Contact Sharkey’s at (850) 235-2420 for information.
Captain Anderson’s Restaurant and Waterfront Market
Location: 5551 N. Lagoon Dr., Panama City, FL
Captain Anderson’s is somewhere between a restaurant and a fish market – perfect for visitors who want to live like locals.
Visitors can order top-tier scallops, shrimp cocktails, calamari, mushroom caps, and more from the dinner menu. This marketplace offers takeout, so you can carry items back to your Panama City Beach vacation rentals.
Visitors expect a beach view while dining at Panama City Beach restaurants, and at Captain Anderson’s the view is particularly unique. This eatery offers a front-row seat to the local fishers who sail the gulf for fresh seasonal catches. They can be seen throughout the early evening unloading their fishing boats, charters, and yachts – usually full of Gulf delicacies.
While you can venture to the dock any time of year to watch the daily fishing routine unfold, please note that the restaurant is only open seasonally. Give them a call at (850) 234-2225 for 2018 dates and hours.
