Perfectly done steamed oysters. Cheap beer and good service. Blackened grouper po boy was spot on. Great local dive bar.

My parents now live in Panama City Beach, as their parents did before them, so I have spent many summers and holidays enjoying the amenities of the Emerald Coast for the past 45 years or so. But I have never had an occasion to visit Dusty's Oyster Bar along Front Beach Road (just a couple of miles from my folk's... More

When we walked in the door we weren't sure about our choice but once we tasted our first oyster we knew we had picked the right place. Very friendly atmosphere, clean and delicious oysters. A great find.

I have been many times and keep trying to find something good besides beer and oysters. Would not suggest waiting in line here. We did an off-season late lunch. Tried recommended grouper po-boys. Pitcher of beer was good, but food was marginal. Was floored to be charged for tap water. Everything is served in plastic or paper. We love a... More

Service was great, but this is off season. Food was good. I dont eat oysters, but for those in my party that did, they said they were excellent. The scallops were delish, and they gave you plenty

Quite a place ! Had to wait a bit, which was fine....interesting things to see there ! Very eclectic, and friendly. Oysters were out of this world ! Also the shrimp was fresh and very tasty. Friendly staff, and great service. A must to visit if you are ever in PCB !

A lively atmosphere for sure. Do not let that prevent you from enjoying excellent and fresh seafoood. Grilled or fried to perfection. Sampled several dishes and all them exceeded expectations. Meat dishes for the non-seafood crowd as well. Tasty desserts, if you have room at the end of your meal and cold pitchers of beer. Very well priced and good... More
