One of the main reasons people visit the coast is to enjoy the seafood. And, oh boy, have we got plenty of it on the Emerald Coast. Dine bayside, beachside or boat side. Wherever you choose to gather with friends and family, you will be sure to satisfy your craving. Up and down the beach, breakfast, lunch and dinner are served at the popular places and out-of-the-way locations where the local flare spices the food and atmosphere. Our restaurants also offer other varieties of food including Cajun, barbecue and Italian. After a delightful meal, be sure to save room for desert at one of our bakeries or ice cream stores. Maybe nightlife is the way to top off an evening. Panama City Beach is famous for after dinner entertainment. The area nightclubs offer excitement with live music and dancing, and our harbor-side decks offer moonlit romance.
