Give me your top 5 places to eat

Leaving for PCB in 12 days. So excited!!! Would like to know everyone's top 5 places to go for dinner & what you like from those places. We are a group of 10 (5 adults & 5 kids under age 7).

We are thinking Angelo's, Margaritaville, Boondocks, Back Porch, & Captain's Table. I am not a big seafood person but the rest of the group is. Also, what about the Shrimp Boat? Thanks!!!!

We usually have 4 adults and 5 children. This year we will have 7 adults and 13 children (6-12 year olds, 1-14 year old, 2-15 year olds, 2-16 year olds and 2-17 year olds)

Schooners- on the beach, good food and music, my kids love it. (chicken fingers, burgers, grouper)

Margaritaville - love the burgers, the atmosphere, we all had a great time.

Montego Bay - great grouper, chicken, fried pickles, fried alligator nuggets.

Boatyard - outdoors everything good there.

There are many others - Hammerhead Freds, Pineapple Willies, Spinnakers - most all have seafood and other than seafood on the menu.

It's always just me and dh but where we go there's always children.

Schooners (great location and eating out by the beach is too fun)

Montego Bay - great seafood; good price

Captains Table - nice to get away from the beach and very reasonable.

Angelo's - wonderful steaks

Mellow Mushroom - really good pizza

But also Hammerhead Fred's is one of my favorites. I also go to Dirty Dick's (it can be sometimey)

A better steak place in my opinion is the Triple J located on Thomas Drive near the entrance to Bay Point. Very reasonable and delicious!

Top 5:

1 - Capt. Anderson's, greek salad, yummy rolls, fantastic grouper throats

2 - Bayou Bill's - the most awesome crab legs!

3 - Margaritaville - Volcano nachos!

4 - repeat the process <smile>

I'm not much of a seafood lover either, but I don't mind it once in a while.

1. Firefly - delicious food in a quiet, upscale atmosphere (hard to beat the value if you go before 6 and get the early-bird)

2. 5 Guys Burgers - great place for burgers and fries

3. Saltwater Grill - early-bird menu is a great value

4. Angelo's - loved the steaks

5. Schooner's - excellent view
