Had a great time here with some friends. Three of us ordered a shrimp past dish and it was terrific....great flavors with lots of tender shrimp. The bread was wonderful as well. Our server did a great job. We ate here several times last year and had to go back again....and probably will again next year!!!

The decor is interesting. We had the Fish & Chips which was excellent. A good amount of fish and Cooked great! We also had the gumbo - which I liked, but my partner thought is was too spicy. The server said it wasn't spicy... well I suppose that depends. But the fish & Chips were excellent as was the pepper... More

We had J Michaels oysters and a seafood combo and keylime pie. Only complaint is the cole slaw was awful! but I didn't tell them. I guess some people like it bitter. It is a casual place with typical seafood menu. Wish I'd spent more time looking before ordering though. The fries were really good too. Limited bar menu but... More

Good food, fun atmosphere, interesting decor. Feels like a local hangout - those are the best! Love the Greek salad and all the fish we have tried over several visits have been prepared well and tasty. Good, simple fare.

We went to J Michaels for lunch after reading a nice review in Panama City Beach Visitor, expecting to find a local place to love. We had a nice server and ordered all their so called specialties-- Gumbo, Red Beans and Rice, Shrimp J Michaels. The food was mediocre at best. Gumbo was full of a strange fiber and mystery... More

This is such a great place. Very family friendly and service is on-point. The menu has something for everyone. I had the Original Shrimp J Michael and it was outstanding. Think étouffée with a mild hit of curry. Silky and delicious! I never would have thought of this combo, but the balance was perfect. He had the flounder Fish &... More

This restaurant has been here a while and you can tell as soon as you enter. Their seafood is fresh and the service friendly. If you like sporting events, they have several flat screens in the place. You need to give them a try whether staying on the beach or just passing through!

Recently ate here while visiting friends in Panama City Beach. Great local seafood place with good food and great service. Has lots of eclectic decor with dollar bills from all over, surf boards, photos, etc. to add to the ambiance. A little on the pricey side for the meals, but food is good. Very attentive servers/wait staff. Clean and neat... More

This place has a relaxed atmosphere with a warm welcoming staff. We sat at the bar which has a decent selection of draft beers. The food is very good and the prices are reasonable for the tourist driven Panama City area. The fish and chips were on special with the fish lightly breaded and is a large portion. It looked...
