After 30 years of eating here, it never fails to please. The best oysters anywhere and lovely waitstaff. Be ready to wait in line because of its popularity but SO worth the time and effort.

No matter where I am, I always follow the advice of fellow travelers on TripAdvisor! They hit it out of the park on this one too. All of the reviews are true. Hunt's is a great seafood place with a great atmosphere. It's my dad's...More

I love this place. We got there just late enough that we didn't have to wait. The oysters were cold and fresh. Crab claws were small, but tasty and our waitress was right on the job.

A small family owned oyster bar, this little hole in the wall place has amazing seafood. From the perfectly shucked raw oysters to the lobster bisque, everything tastes wonderful.

My sister swears by the cheeseburgers there.
II will be coming to Panama City (not the beach) very soon and I am wondering what the price is for a dozen raw oysters. I usually eat 2 or 3 dozen. I would like to come for lunch.

Sorry I don't eat raw oysters so I didn't even look at that on the menu. Everything was good there.
Mr G
What are the prices for baked and raw oysters at lunch? I eat at Dusty's last time and it was good.

I 'm not sure. They will change with the availability of the oysters bur we've always found them to be competitive and a little cheaper than the other oyster places. They shuck them fresh.
