“Do not be turned of by the location”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

My wife and I had to travel to Panama City for doctor appts twice over the last two weeks and decided to eat lunch at Dee's because of Trip Advisor's reviews. We almost drove by the restaurant due to it's location in a small strip center. We looked at each other, wondering if this was the correct site but decided to go in due to the reviews. Inside, the restaurant could be a poster boy for Diners, Drive Ins and Dives. We decided to try the seared tuna appetizer which was served with 3 sauces. It was very, very good. For our entree we each ordered a shrimp po-boy. My wife had hers fully dressed and I had mine stripped(just shrimp and bread) with tarter sauce on the side. When they arrived, you could hardly see the the po- boy loaf. The po-boy was as good as any We have eaten in New Orleans plus they were served on Weidenheimer's po-boy loaves(the official po-boy loaf of New Orleans ). The second trip, we had po-boys again. For appetizers, we tried the She Crab soup and the fried baby portobello mushrooms. Both were great. This is a restaurant we will definately visit again because of the quality of food, the prompt service and the price of the food.

“Overall, probably the best food on the beach!”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Dee's has become another place that we always visit. The last 2 year, we have ate there twice. We ate lunch one day, and dinner another night. The food is always excellent, and we ventured out a little more this time, and tried more items on the menu. Everything is always so fresh, and perfectly cook. Even their $5.99 kids popcorn shrimp is excellent. Its not the same old dry, fried, crusty (cheap) shrimp. They use fresh, small shrimp and fried to perfection. I highly recommend their blackened grouper, the fish tacos (the blackened fish AND grilled steak versions are awesome!), Crab Cakes (best I've ever had by far), and the fried pickles, and smoked tuna dip appetizers. You can also get those crab cakes as an appetizer also. The Chicken and Dumplings on the Wednesday lunch menu are awesome, and their cajun Collards are excellent.

Our waiter, Tim, was very good and helpful with items on the menu. If you're going to PCB, you owe it yourself to try Dee's! The only thing they need is a bigger place!

“Best Value In Seafood”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

It's a small place, and could use better signage to help you find it, but once you do, you will be hooked. I hope they buy a bigger space and expand, as their seafood was far better than Captain Anderson's, and at a far better price.

“What a Great Little Place in PCB”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

My daughter and her boyfriend ate there last year and said this year we had to go with them to check it out. The food is amazing!!! The she crab soup, smoked Tuna, Shrimp Po'Boy, Fish Tacos, and the Cajun Platter were all excellent. Loved the Gallon/half gallon draft beer served in the milk jugs and the Banana pudding was the best. Prices are great for all you get and the service was some of the best we had during our week stay at the beach, Thank you Tim. A great beach hang out for sure. Get there early as this is now a hot spot on Front Beach and the place is small so plan on a wait. Thanks Dee's we will be back next year.
