Simply the best! My favorites are the fried and blackened alligator tail! The oysters are always the best! Salty and cold...just the way we like them. My husband loves the crab ... Read more
claws and Cajun shrimp. I also love the baked oysters. Haven't been adventurous to try the other types. The wait during the summer can be LONG! But it's worth the wait!!!

In PCB for over 50 years, coldest, saltiest oysters in town. Great crab legs and cold beer.

I have never been there but if the lines are any indication, it's really good. It's always busy.
In historic St Andrews.

Hunt's is an institution in St. Andrews. This family owned and operated Oyster Bar has stayed packed out for decades. If you live any form of oyster this is the place to go, but they also have other great seafood and non-seafood offerings.

Hunt’s Oyster Bar and Seafood Restaurant Small, noisy, crowded, but best oysters…period. Fresh caught, local seafood, generous portions for reasonable prices. This is where the locals eat, but gaining popularity with tourists. In Historic St. Andrews, Panama City.

Cold, fresh, shucked for you. This place is a staple for locals and tourists. Great prices. In the OLD St Andrews historic area Beck street over the Hathaway bridge and a ways from the beach crowd.
The fun part is how cheap the Food is. Other places nearby. Follow the roads nearest the water all the way to Downtown PC and see the pretty houses on the Bay and end up in downtown. A fun day trip.

The best seafood in Panama City. Located in the historic St Andrews area of Panama City. If you're not there by 4 or 4:30 PM, you will wait in line. Prices are great as this is a local hangout and not fancy by any means. Not open on Sunday. About a 30-minute drive from Pinnacle Port but well worth the drive.

Off the beaten path but a great place to have a wonderful oyster in a very casual atmosphere! Shuckers do it one at a time and are great guides.
