Our first trip to bayou joes & won't be our last! Great dinner and waitress had good suggestions.. It's off the beaten path, no 45 min wait, or commercial atmosphere- so if that's what you want then go to those places! This is a marina view hometown find with great food & we had a great waitress (that wasn't covered... More

One of our favorites for off the beach dining. Love the on the water experience and old Florida feel. I really enjoyed the blackened shrimp mango salad with spicy ranch dressing. The crispy shrimp wraps and the bayou chips are both excellent appetizers.

Our food was good fresh local fare and we liked the different bayou marina view. Service was fairly slow, but we weren't in a hurry, so no big deal. The place was busy. Deep fried corn is a good selection as a side. We will be back for sitter visit and explore more of your menu.

Service was good and friendly. Beautiful location. Had grilled mahi with green beans and salad. Salad was very small. Green beans were covered in oil. The mahi was the smallest amount I have ever been served and was overlooked to the point it was like mahi jerky. One of the worst meals I have had while traveling in many years.

This is a great place, as a local we love it. But keep in mind that it's super small and wait time can be really long. Food is really good. Your on the water right by the draw bridge.

I thoroughly enJOYed my meal. I had the blackened grouper with hush puppies and corn on the cob. Absolutely delicious. And I don't even like hush puppies! My brother got the shrimp basket and said it was equally delicious. I'd definitely go back!

We eat breakfast here occasionally during the weekends and roughly once a month for dinner. Always leave full and satisfied. The rice crispy french toast is the way to go for breakfast. I normally order something off the daily special menu for dinner. Boat and car friendly.

We ate at Bayou Joe's two years ago when visiting PCB and enjoyed it. We decided to visit again this weekend. We chose the oyster basket and sandwich for lunch. The menu indicated "market price". Each was $17. However, the basket had only 4 whole oysters and 5 small pieces. We were told there were 12 oysters on the basket.... More

We had time to kill before heading to the airport for our flight. We were driving around checking out the sights in Panama City & wanted something to eat. I googled local food in the area that we were in & Bayou Joe's was one that popped up & seemed like something that we would enjoy. Don't let looks fool... More

We enjoyed the deck for a lunch, beers and visit with friends. Food was not spectacular by any means but the vibe of the placed made up for that. Will return with friends to enjoy the mojo there again. Here's to the bubble gum they give you after paying your tab, unique and fun.
