Not a fancy restaurant, nor for the budget-conscious, but fairly priced for the area and didn't require a reservation. Staff was friendly, food came quickly. The crab cakes and crab soup were delicious.

Had a newspaper coupon and went here. Food was good and staff was friendly. Building is old and has the look and smell of Florida 1960's. Lot's of retired locals eating there. Had a bar but no one was at it. They have a great selection of deserts that they bring to your table after dinner. We had the Snickerdoodle... More

The minute we walked in I loved the mom and pop atmosphere. No fuss, older booth type set up, friendly staff and good food. I can's say it was the best seafood I have ever had. I got the early bird dinner special of fish and it was a big grilled square hunk of cod full of spices and salt... More

I highly recommend the She Crab Soup. It is one of the best I have ever had and I have eaten many, many bowls of this soup all over the coastal south. The raw oysters were fresh, plump and juicy. All the food we had tonight was exemplary. This restaurant is family owned and run and the atmosphere feels warm... More

Thank you so much Picky307! Our owner, Ms. Sandy makes our homemade She-Crab soup fresh everyday along with a lot of our other menu items and our homemade desserts. She has done it everyday for close to four decades, so we suspect that's why it tastes SO DARN GOOD! We are so happy that you enjoyed your dinner with us... More

Good place for a quick dinner. Nice staff, good food. Fried oysters were wonderful as well as the grouper. They shouldn't bother serving veggies that are from a bag from the supermarket

Restaurant is very casual. If you want "atmosphere" go someplace else. If you want fresh seafood and great food and friendly service - then go here. We are at a lot of restaurants during our vacation and this was recommended by the locals. Casual environment. Family owned restaurant that gets the freshest fish from their adjacent fish market. Best oysters... More

Came for a romantic dinner on one of our last nights here. I ordered the Alaskan king crab and it was fantastic. There was dining right out over her ocean, and it was very relaxing. Our server was excellent, and though the meal was expensive it was reflective of the quality.

We visited here early on a Saturday evening, just in time for their early bird specials. Had the place almost to ourselves at first and the help were very inviting and took time to chat a bit w/us.

We pulled on to this place, it's a little older building thinking hummm? But when we went inside the staff was super friendly and we felt right at home. We got the seafood platters they were good.

Description
Pier 77 is a local PCB seafood restaurant that has been in operation for over 35 years. Our seafood comes fresh from our sister business next door, Shrimp City, a gulf seafood market. Both establishments are ran by the same family, in fact, they are brother and sister. Sandra Arnold runs Pier 77 and Hal Dybdal operates Shrimp City, while their father, Mr. Harold Dybdal, acts as the family business consultant. Ask the locals and they will tell you Pier 77 is the hidden gem of Thomas Drive, that serves the best fried shrimp and she-crab soup in Panama City Beach! Our restaurant will be reopening on January 15th, 2015! We are excited to show you the incredible changes we have made during the off-season. Come out and help us celebrate our 35th year serving Bay County & our new and improved menu and decor!
