Buddy’s Seafood Market
On Panama City Beach, Buddy’s Seafood Market is an institution. Locals and tourists have been flocking to Buddy’s for over twenty-five years.

It’s here you’ll find a scrumptious assortment of shrimp, Gulf fresh fish, blue ribbon gumbo and delectable homemade pies.
Buffalo Wild Wings
It is the same dilemma John and Nancy face every week – where to take the kids for dinner? It would be nice to have time together where the parents can relax and have the kids happy, too. Lou is in a similar situation; it’s his turn to pick where the office will have lunch. He wants somewhere relatively quick, with good food, and where his large group can sit together and be served comfortably..
Dick’s Last Resort
It was 1985. Leg warmers and mullets were the rage. Dick was hard up. His big league plans had failed and opening a laid back bar full of attitude was all he could muster up the strength to do. Dick’s was really his last resort. Thankfully, dick jokes became synonymous with good food & cold beers and the first Dick’s Last Resort opened with huge success in the West End in Dallas, TX.
Great White Pizza
Anybody can make a pizza. Only a few can make good pizza. Then there are those that make it the Way it Was. Great White in Pier Park on the west end of Panama City Beach is just that. If you want good pizza then call the delivery guy and get your pizza. If you want pizza that makes taste buds dance, that transports you back to the Old World of Italy, Great White is the place.
