every time we passed dirty dicks in Panama City the crowd was unbelievable.just so happened we caught them on a night the crowd wasn't really bad. We first walked in we had a party of 6, for adults 2 children under 10. We were told the wait would be approximately 45 minutes. Not bad. I would say average. However, while... More

We visited Dirty Dick's again this year on our trip to the beach 4th of July week. We make an effort to go there every time we are there. They have the best crabs bar none. The food is always great but several times the service hasn't been the best. Last three times we visited, after giving our names we... More

Bought the trinity which was $65 but fed 2 adults and 2 children. Even on a busy night we were setted instantly. This service was ok. Food was very good and worth the money especially considering the portions were huge. This place deserves a higher rating than it has. Pick this place over the other talked about places (Captain Jacks,... More

Good food and decor. It really looks like a Joe's Crab Shack which we also like to eat at. In any case we saw the place stopped and it was worth it. Large amounts of food so be ready to eat!

We have visited here every time we go to PCB. They bring you out these amazing hush puppies while your waiting on your food. If you get an appetizer,try the fried pickles they are the best. The food was also delicious. One of my favorite restaurants when visiting PCB.

Food was OK. My wife and I shared the huge fried seafood platter. It was better than Long Johns. Waiter kept calling me Buddy, which I think is disrespectful. Won't be going back.

Get out your secret stash of money! Super expensive meals. However it was the best seafood I have ever had. The alligator tail appetizer was amazing. I would have never thought I would like it so well!

When we arrived, half the restaurant was empty yet we were told a 20 minute wait. So we finally sit, in a cramped table in the corner when plenty of other tables were available. When I mentioned how cramped I was the polite waiter confirmed, yea it is kinda cramped here. Conversation over and request for drinks issued. Food was... More

This place has food and drinks that are very delicious. But bring your appetite because the servings are man sized and will bring you to your knees!

Description
We strive for wholesome, fresh made food. All of our fish are fresh, our shrimp are wild-caught domestic & our crab is fresh blue crab ( not Asian blue swimming crab ). The crab list here is the largest variety around to include Blue Crab , Alaskan King Crab, Snow Crab, Dungeness Crab and Jonah Crab. Crawfish is offered seasonally. We present ourselves as "Seafood with a New Orleans Accent" with nuances of Chesapeake Bay. Since we are originally from New Orleans, we also have entrees like Shrimp Etoufee and other Cajun/Creole delicacies. Our lunch specials start at $7.99 daily.
