If you cold only pick one place ...

If you could only pick one nice seafood restaurant to eat at during your stay in PCB, where would it be? I've seen alot of great reviews to different places but can't decide on one. The last time we went to PCB, we ate at the Treasure Ship and it was just okay. I am hoping to find a great place to go since my husband and kids really love seafood. Thanks!!!

Capt Anderson's is nice, but gets mixed reviews. I have been twice in the last two years. One time I really liked it, the next time it was just okay. But it is quite pricey. Our hands-down favorite in PCB is Boondocks, but it is not what I call "nice". It is in a shack of a building, kinda makes you leary when you drive up, but the inside is clean and overlooks the intercoastal waterway. Last time we were there, we saw a gator swimming. They have a cute little gift shop and live music while you wait, but GO EARLY. The food is mostly fried, but they do have burgers and chicken for picky eaters and kids. Everything we have ever had there was fabulous. I HIGHLY recommend it, but if you are looking for upscale, this is not the place. I have never been, but Saltwater Grill is very nice and gets great reviews.

Our favorites are The Boatyard, Saltwater Grill, Pier 77 , and Captains Table. The fanciest I've named is the Saltwater Grill. All have good food. I have not eaten at Boondocks but some of my family has and they liked it. I personaly love the BoatYard , sitting out by the water and watching the boats come in is neat. My kids like it too !!

When on vacation we don't do "fancy" but for good seafood in general, we like Boondocks, Boatyard, Pier 77 and Schooners. I'd say Boatyard is "classy casual" -- you can get away w/shorts and polo shirts, capris, board shorts/bermudas etc...but I wouldn't wear cut offs. Boondocks the same, Schooners you could probably get away w/cut offs and flip flops but I'd still opt for regular shorts. Pier 77 is very casual. Never been to Saltwater Grill but heard it's awesome.

For steak---Angelo's...no doubt.

Good luck,

Mine is Montego Bay. It is really good and not too expensive. Great lunch spot!

We love the Boatyard!! We don't dress up for the place, we just wear shorts and shirts. My daughter and I wear flip flops there and I've seen a lot of other people wear flip flops.
