Well… I had been excited about trying out this Panama City Beach German restaurant at Pier Park for ages. Our neighbors from Atlanta were going to be down for the weekend and since one of them is German we thought what better opportunity. We’ve walked by the place many times and thought it looked really cute inside. The employees are all dressed up in their German get-ups right down to the waitresses with their tight corset thingies (think Swiss Miss girl working at Hooters).

Oh, dude….I thought when we were going to a sushi joint in a Publix shopping center, that it wasn’t going to measure up…..to anything! I’m so happy to report that it was awesome! I mean, we aren’t sushi snobs by any means, but in Atlanta, I’ve had tons of great sushi and this is just as great. It was beautiful to look at, and delicious.
I would say the price is average for good sushi….the fancier rolls were between $9.00 and $14.00 and the plain “regular” rolls were $4.00 to $7.00 and it was ALL delicious. I am so tired of getting ripped off here in PCB b/c of the “tourist” factor. This place was definitely NOT a rip-off if you are looking for good sushi. It was great!

If you’ve fantisized about eating pan-fried noodles in Antarctica, the P.F. Chang’s in Destin might just be the answer to your dreams! I have never in my life been in a restaurant so cold!….nor in a restaurant where they insist there is nothing they can do about the temperature of the establishment while little old ladies and small children are shivering and hovering over their table candle for warmth. Unreal.
Unfortunately, our experience at this P.F. Chang’s was all too typical for restaurants down here during the season. It’s the “we know you aren’t coming back” mentality which equals poor service and so-so food. Overall, the experience was bad, and I won’t be heading back, probably ever.

Oh boy. What can we say about Dusty’s. From the road it looks like it could be a biker bar. Actually, once you’re inside…you might still think you’re in a biker bar..until you notice all the families around. In a town where you will get shortchanged on a good meal as often as not, Dusty’s is a breath of fresh air.
Fine dining, it’s not, but if you are in the mood for some oysters on the half shell or amazingly delicious “Dusty” style this is where you want to go. The wait can be really bad but if you plan your visit ahead of time you can arrive before the rush and get seated fairly quickly. The prices are very fair compared to a lot of places in the area so we have never left feeling gypped like we have many other places. We don’t miss an opportunity to visit Dusty’s and neither should you. See ya there!

Yum! Shades (“at the loop”) is actually so far “west end” that it’s actually more like east end Rosemary Beach! You have to cross the bridge over lake Powell. But a mere mile or so later you’ll see Shades where you turn to take scenic 30A past the likes of Rosemary Beach, Alys Beach, and on through The Truman Show‘s Seaside.
Liz is OBSESSED with their “Fish Bites” appetizer, and I can’t say I blame her. They are a very tasty treat. Their wings also make for a good appetizer or a nice “side” dish for the table to share with their entrees. They have a nice selection of beer on draft and some tasty desserts if you have the room. Throw in a ton of flat screens broadcasting your favorite sports and the free wi-fi so you can post your food pics to Facebook and make all your friends back home super jealous and you have a really fun dinner out! See you at Shades!
