As soon as you enter our Panama City Beach restaurant, you will be wowed by the panoramic view of our 25,000-gallon tropical saltwater aquarium. Both sides of our restaurant offer dazzling views of this tropical reef and its nonstop parade of exotic sea creatures. Our Gulf fresh seafood and choice steaks are amazing. Grab a drink at our newly designed bar and hang out friends.
